Hymn ye servants of god

Ye servants of God,

your Master proclaim,

and publish abroad

His wonderful name;

the name all-victorious

of Jesus extol;

His kingdom is glorious,

and rules over all.

God ruleth on high,

almighty to save;

and still He is nigh,

His presence we have;

the great congregation

His triumph shall sing,

ascribing salvation

to Jesus our King.

Hymn: Ye Servants of God

Words: Charles Wesley

Music: Charles H H Parry


The lord s prayer
The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed by your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours

now and for ever.

Amen


Hymn great is the darkness

Great is the darkness

that covers the earth,

Oppression, injustice and pain.

Nations are slipping in

hopeless despair,

Though many have come in

Your name.

Watching while sanity dies,

Touched by the madness and lies.

Come, Lord Jesus,

Come, Lord Jesus,

Pour out Your Spirit we pray.

Come, Lord Jesus,

Come, Lord Jesus,

Pour out Your Spirit on us today.

Hymn: Great is the Darkness


Hymn great is the darkness1

May now Your church rise with power and love,

This glorious gospel proclaim.

In every nation salvation will come

To those who believe in Your name.

Help us bring light to this world

That we might speed Your return.

Come, Lord Jesus,

Come, Lord Jesus,

Pour out Your Spirit we pray.

Come, Lord Jesus,

Come, Lord Jesus,

Pour out Your Spirit on us today.

Hymn: Great is the Darkness


Hymn great is the darkness2

Great celebrations on that final day

When out of the heavens You come.

Darkness will vanish,

All sorrows will end,

And rulers will bow at Your throne.

Our great commission complete,

Then face to face we shall meet.

Come, Lord Jesus,

Come, Lord Jesus,

Pour out Your Spirit we pray.

Come, Lord Jesus,

Come, Lord Jesus,

Pour out Your Spirit on us today.

Hymn: Great is the Darkness
