In nòmine Patris, et Fìlii,

(in the name of the Father, and the Son)

et Spìritus Sancti. Amen.
(and the Holy Spirit. Amen)

God the giver of all things love
all things true
all things good

Expand our grateful hearts 

Restore our thirsty minds

Rest our anxious souls 

Oh, Giver of all.

Oh, Giver of all.

Expand our broken hearts (broken hearts will expand to love)

Restore our thoughtful minds (thoughtful minds will restore our faith)

Rest our willing souls (willing souls will rest willingly)

Oh, Giver of all.
Track Name: Where There Is Love
Come on. Come in. We're all gathering.

Think on God’s grace, not on your sin. 

Here you are loved and forgiven. 

‘Cause there’s friends here new and old  
And there’s stories to be told

And there’s bread and there’s wine to be shared for where there’s love God is truly there

Come on.  Come in 
We thought it was over and we’re at our end  

But it’s only another chance to begin

‘Cause songs here to be sung  and there’s welcome for everyone

And there’s bread and there’s wine to be shared

For where there’s love God is truly there

Come Holy Spirit fill the hearts of the faithful and kindle in us the fires of your love
Track Name: The Point
We have all been caught at some time marching in the order of death

justice for some, blessing the deserving and holding self-righteousness
Using others for our advantage  for the privilege of the few
Dominating creation, excessive consumption, trusting in human power

What is the point? Refusing to give up, the Creator continues
to call individuals to pass through the watery depths

to resurrection into Gods promises    
validation is ours on the cross you are free

you are beloved just as you are  

Instilled in each and every person is a longing for the order of life
Reconciliation and trust in our God -  one loving family in Christ

The unity of all creation good news for the poor and powerless

God’s abundance for all. God’s mercy for all.  God’s blessing for all.
Forgiveness for all

This is the point.  Refusing to give up,   
Jesus continues to call individuals

To pass through the watery depths   
To resurrection into God’s promises

Validation is ours on the cross you are free  
You are beloved just as you are
Track Name: Let Us Pray
Lord, have mercy

For the peace from above and 
for our salvation

Let us pray to the Lord

Lord, have mercy

For the peace of the whole world

For the well‐being of the church of God

And for the unity of all

Let us pray to the Lord

Lord, have mercy

For this holy house and for all who offer here
their worship and praise
Let us pray to the Lord

Lord, have mercy

Help, save comfort and defend us Oh Gracious Lord      
Track Name: Song of Praise (from a recovering cynic)
There’s nothing wrong with Joy though so many are sad.

So thank you God for Joy. Live joy.

There’s nothing wrong with Hope though so many are despair.

So thank you God for Hope. Live hope.

There’s nothing wrong with Faith though we're so cynical

So thank you God for Faith. Live Faith.

There’s nothing wrong with Love though ambivalence reigns.

So thank you God for Love. Live Love.

We will not give up on love.
Track Name: Revealed
Heaven and earth rejoice for I am with you,

The wonder and awe that keeps the stars apart

The mystery of this union weighs on me.

You must know I'm not worthy to receive you
My history, my hidden thoughts are clear as day to you

Oh just touch my lips and I am revealed     
Only say the word and I shall be healed

Heaven and earth rejoice for you are with me

My body is now a vessel for your heart

My life is not my own because it's yours 

My God I'd be a fool not to receive you

The very thought of all you are is dawning like the day
Track Name: Of the Father's Love
Of the Father’s love begotten, ere the worlds began to be,

He is Alpha and Omega, He the source, the ending He,

Of the things that are, that have been,

And that future years shall see, evermore and evermore!

At His Word the worlds were framed; He commanded; it was done:

Heaven and earth and depths of ocean in their threefold order one;

All that grows beneath the shining

Of the moon and burning sun, evermore and evermore!

This is He Whom seers in old time chanted of with one accord;

Whom the voices of the prophets promised in their faithful word;

Now He shines, the long expect-ed,

Let creation praise its Lord, evermore and evermore!

O ye heights of heaven adore Him; angel hosts, His praises sing;

Powers, dominions, bow before Him, and extol our God and King!
Honor, glory, and dominion,

And eternal victory, evermore and evermore!

Christ, to Thee with God the Father, and, O Holy Ghost, to Thee,

Hymn and chant with high thanksgiving, and unwearied praises be:

Let no tongue on earth be silent,     

Every voice in concert sing, evermore and evermore!
Track Name: Holy and Here
The Lord be with you
And also with you

Lift up your hearts
We lift them up to the Lord
Let us give thanks to the Lord
It is right to give God thanks and praise  

(It is our duty and our joy in all times and all places with all people and all Creation)

You are holy and you are here

Lord God Almighty
Heaven and earth are full of your glory

Hosanna in the highest 

Let us sing, “Hosanna!”

Blest be the one who comes in your name

Track Name: For You
This is my body given for you.                                

Remember Beloved I’m for you.                                           

This is my blood poured out for you.

Remember Beloved I’m for you.

It is here that Christ meets us. Here the Spirit woos us.

In bread and wine the grace of God finds us.

Lamb of God you take away the sin of the world have mercy on us
Track Name: Benediction for the Beloved
Teach us Lord of your Love

That we might learn to love ourselves

Inside love, find your will

To work toward justice in the world

Let your mercy spread all around

To end abuse violence and war

You have shown me what you want from me

To do justly and love mercy

To walk humble with our one God

Go in peace with our one God

Track Name: In Nomine (reprise)
In nòmine Patris, et Fìlii,

(in the name of the Father, and the Son)

et Spìritus Sancti. Amen.
