  3. It only takes a spark to get a fire going, and soon all those around can warm up in its glowing: that’s how it is with God’s love, once you’ve experienced it: you spread God’s love to everyone, you want to pass it on. “Growth is the only evidence of life.” John Henry Newman

  4. What a wondrous time is spring when all the trees are budding, the birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming; that’s how it is with God’s love, once you’ve experienced it: you want to sing, it’s fresh like spring, you want to pass it on. “Growth is the only evidence of life.” John Henry Newman

  5. I wish for you my friend, this happiness that I’ve found- on God you can depend, it matters not where you’re bound; I’ll shout it from the mountain top; I want the world to know: the Lord of love has come to me, I want to pass it on. “Growth is the only evidence of life.” John Henry Newman

  6. * Invitation to Worship One: My soul cries out with a joyful shout that the God of my heart is great, and my spirit sings of the wondrous things that you bring to the ones who wait. You fixed your sight on your servant's plight, and my weakness you did not spurn, so from east to west shall my name be blest. Could the world be about to turn? “Growth is the only evidence of life.” John Henry Newman

  7. ALL: My heart shall sing of the day you bring.Let the fires of your justice burn.Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws near,and the world is about to turn! “Growth is the only evidence of life.” John Henry Newman

  8. One: Though I am small, my God, my all, you work great things in me, and your mercy will last from the depths of the past to the end of the age to be. Your very name puts the proud to shame, and to those who would for you yearn, you will show your might, put the strong to flight, for the world is about to turn. “Growth is the only evidence of life.” John Henry Newman

  9. ALL: My heart shall sing of the day you bring.Let the fires of your justice burn.Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws near,and the world is about to turn! “Growth is the only evidence of life.” John Henry Newman

  10. One: From the halls of power to the fortress tower, not a stone will be left on stone. Let the king beware for your justice tears every tyrant from his throne. The hungry poor shall weep no more, for the food they can never earn; there are tables spread, every mouth be fed, for the world is about to turn. “Growth is the only evidence of life.” John Henry Newman

  11. ALL: My heart shall sing of the day you bring.Let the fires of your justice burn.Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws near,and the world is about to turn! “Growth is the only evidence of life.” John Henry Newman

  12. One: Though the nations rage from age to age, we remember who holds us fast: God's mercy must deliver us from the conqueror's crushing grasp. This saving word that our forebears heard is the promise which holds us bound, 'til the spear and rod can be crushed by God who is turning the world around. “Growth is the only evidence of life.” John Henry Newman
