PRAYER TO THE SACRED HEART

Merciful Jesus, I consecrate myself today and always to Your Most Sacred Heart.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I implore, that I may ever love You more and more.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Your love for me.

Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like Yours.

Amen.




ENTRANCE: STANDING ON THE PROMISES

1.

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,

Through eternal ages let His praises ring,

Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

Standing on the promises of God.

CHORUS

Standing, standing,

Standing on the promises of God my Savior;

Standing, standing, I’m standing on the promises of God.


2.

Standing on the promises that cannot fail,

When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

By the living Word of God I shall prevail,

Standing on the promises of God.

3.

Standing on the promises I now can see

Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;

Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,

Standing on the promises of God.

4.

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,

Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,

Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,

Standing on the promises of God.

5.

Standing on the promises I cannot fall,

List’ning every moment to the Spirit’s call.

Resting in my Savior as my All in all,

Standing on the promises of God.



COMMUNION: YOU ARE NEAR


CHORUS

O Lord, I know you are near,

Standing always at my side.

You guard me from the foe,

And you lead me in ways everlasting.


1.

Lord, you have searched my heart,

And you know when I sit and when I stand.

Your hand is upon me

Protecting me from death,

Keeping me from harm.


2.

Where can I run from your love?

If I climb to the heavens you are there;

If I fly to the sunrise

Or sail beyond the sea,

Still I'd find you there.


3.

You know my heart and its way,

You who formed me before I was born

In the secret of darkness

Before I saw the sun in my mother's womb.


4.

Marvelous to me are your works;

How profound are your thoughts, my Lord.

Even if I could count them,

They number as the stars,

You would still be there.



RECESSIONAL: THY WORD


CHORUS

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet

And a light unto my path.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet

And a light unto my path.


1.

When I feel afraid,

And think I've lost my way.

Still, you're there right beside me.

Nothing will I fear

As long as you are near;

Please be near me to the end.


2.

I will not forget

Your love for me and yet,

My heart forever is wandering.

Jesus by my guide,

And hold me to your side,

I will love you to the end.
