We Pledge To One Another (Thaxted – 2 Verses) – Organ

Lyrics

We pledge to one another,
before the Lord above,
entire and whole and perfect,
this union of our love —
a love that will be patient,
a love that will be wise,
that will not twist with envy,
nor lose itself in lies;
a love that will not falter,
a love to hold us fast,
and bind us to each other
as long as life shall last.

We pray that God will guide us
through all the years to be,
our lives be shaped by courage,
hope and serenity.
Through joy and celebration,
through loneliness and pain,
may loyalty, compassion
and tenderness remain,
that those who share the blessing
of love that cannot cease
may walk the paths of gentleness
into the place of peace.

O love that wilt not let me go (Saint Margaret) – Organ

Hymn – O love that wilt not let me go – Lyrics

1. O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

2. O light that followest all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

3. O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

4. O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.

Spirit Of God (Skye Boat Song – 3 Verses) – Small Orchestra

Spirit Of God ~ Lyrics

Spirit of God, unseen as the wind,
Gentle as is the dove;
Touch us with love and teach us to sing
Joy to you Lord above.

Your voice the sound, heard in the wind,
O’er fields and hills you sing;
Now I can hear the joy, my Lord,
the peace your song will bring.
Refrain

Love in our hearts, praise in our prayers,
We follow on your way;
Lord of the sky, Lord of the Earth,
Answer us when we pray.

Take my life and let it be (Nottingham) – Organ

Hymn – Take my life and let it be – Lyrics

1. Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.

2. Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee;
Take my voice and let me sing,
Always, only for my King.

3. Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee;
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.

4. Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise;
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.

5. Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine;
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.

6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Thine For Ever! God Of Love (Newington – 5 Verses) – Organ

Thine For Ever! God Of Love ~ Lyrics

Thine forever! God of love,
Hear us from thy throne above;
Thine forever may we be
Here and in eternity.

Thine forever! Lord of life,
Shield us through our earthly strife;
Thou, the Life, the Truth, the Way,
Guide us to the realms of day.

Thine forever! O how blest
They who find in thee their rest!
Saviour, Guardian, heavenly Friend,
O defend us to the end.

Thine forever! Shepherd, keep
These thy frail and trembling sheep,
Safe alone beneath thy care,
Let us all thy goodness share.

Thine forever! Thou our Guide,
All our wants by Thee supplied,
All our sins by Thee forgiven,
Lead us, Lord, from earth to heaven

With Vows Given Freely (Pachelbel Canon) – Small Ensemble

Hymn – With vows given freely – Lyrics

With vows given freely, such delight
Is pleasure reflected in God’s sight.
You follow His loving living sign;
In Jesus His gift to us divine:
A sign in the flying of a dove,
Ever present Spirit of his love,
A symbol of the God that is above
Reminds us life is good.

Your life is a thing to be enjoyed,
Not to be squandered or destroyed,
And laughter’s a part of God’s design,
Your joy is another gift divine: Refrain

So, go to the lonely and the sad,
Speak of your joy and make them glad,
Hope’s light in your love will ever shine,
Your love is a holy gift divine: Refrain
