O God, we call,

O God, we call,

From deep inside we yearn,

From deep inside we yearn,

From deep inside we yearn, for you

 

God be gracious to us and bless us:

and make your face to shine upon us,

That your way may be known upon earth:

your salvation among all nations.

Let the peoples praise you, O God:

let all the peoples praise you.

 

O God, we call,

 

Let the nations be glad and sing for joy:

for you judge the peoples with equity

and govern the nations upon earth.

Let the peoples praise you, O God:

let all the peoples praise you.

O God, we call…

 

Then the earth will bring forth its increase:

and God, our own God, will bless us.

You, O God, will bless us:

and all the ends of the earth will fear you.

Let the peoples praise you, O God:

let all the peoples praise you.

 

O God, we call…

 

 

The day is now past and the night is at hand.

Let us pray with one heart and mind.

Silence may be kept.

Father of lights, receive the prayer and praise we offer you as our evening sacrifice; make us a light for all the world, delivered by your goodness from all the works of darkness; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord. Amen.

 

 

Romans 8.1-8

1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3 For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do: by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and to deal with sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 so that the just requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. 6 To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. 7 For this reason the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law—indeed it cannot, 8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

 

Word of God; Word of Life:  Thanks be to God

 

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord:

my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour,

Who has looked with favour on his lowly servant:

from this day all generations will call me blessed;

The Almighty has done great things for me:

and holy is his name.

God has mercy on those who fear him:

from generation to generation.

The Lord has shown strength with his arm:

and scattered the proud in their conceit,

Casting down the mighty from their thrones:

and lifting up the lowly.

God has filled the hungry with good things:

and sent the rich away empty.

He has come to the aid of his servant Israel:

to remember the promise of mercy,

The promise made to our forebears:

to Abraham and his children for ever.

 

 

Song - It is Well

Grander earth has quaked before

Moved by the sound of His voice

Seas that are shaken and stirred

Can be calmed and broken for my regard

Chorus

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

Through it all through it all

It is well

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

And it is well with me

Verse 2

Far be it from me to not believe

Even when my eyes can't see

And this mountain that's in front of me

Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

Through it all through it all

It is well

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

And it is well with me

Bridge

So let go my soul and trust in Him

The waves and wind still know His name

Ending

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well with my soul

It is well it is well with my soul

Chorus

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

Through it all through it all

It is well

Through it all through it all

My eyes are on You

And it is well with me
