(10AM) ENTRANCE: THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD

 

1.   

The Lord is my Shepherd and I want to follow,

Wherever He leads me, wherever He goes.

Over the mountains, the water and byways,

Valleys and highways, He’s waiting for me.

 

Chorus:

I want to go to meet Him there,

To lay myself down in His love.

The Lord is my Shepherd and I want to follow,

Wherever He leads me, wherever He goes.

 

2. 

And while on the journey to where we are going,

He promised to be there to help us along.

And over the mountains, we’ll walk together,

To know all the wonders He’s given me.

 


(10AM) OFFERTORY: LIKE A SHEPHERD

 

Chorus:

Like a shepherd He feed His flock,

And gathers the lambs in His arms.

Holding them carefully close to His heart,

Leading them home.

Say to the cities of Judah,

Prepare the way of the Lord.

Go to the mountain top, lift your voice:

Jerusalem, here is your God.

 

2.  

I Myself will shepherd them,

For others have led them astray.

The lost I will rescue and heal their wounds,

And pasture them, giving them rest.

 

3.  

Come unto Me,

If you are heavily burdened.

And take My yoke upon your shoulders,

I will give you rest.


Ending: Leading them home, leading them home.

1.   

My shepherd is the Lord, for nothing shall I want,              

Green are the pastures where I'm led to repose,                            

Near waters still and deep, God will refresh my soul,          

I am lead onward in ways true to His Name.

 

Chorus:                                                                            

Guide me O shepherd of my heart,                              

Lead me homeward thru the dark, into everlasting day,     

(EVERLASTING - ALTO)

Show me the way of truth and light, keep me always in your sight.

 

End:  May my life, never part, from the shepherd of my heart.    

 

2.  

If I should walk one day, into the vale of darkness,              

No evil shall I fear with God at my side,                                

There with your crook and staff, you give me strength & comfort,

You spread a banquet in the sight of my foes.

 

3.  

You anoint my head with oil, my cup is overflowing,           

Goodness and kindness crown the days of my life,              

Within the Lord's own house, I dwell in peace forever,                  

Within the house of God my soul is at rest.

O Lord in this great mystery

Take Thou our bread and wine

As wheat and drink become our Light

Our altar bears Thy awsome might

O Lord we offer Thee the gift

that lies before Thy sight

Who blessed the supper room

Thou art the God who died and rose

triumphant from the tomb

This host shall bear divinity

This cup contain infinity

The myst'ry fill our souls with love

O Holy Majesty

Gently you raise me and heal my weary soul,

you lead me by pathways of righteousness and truth,

my spirit shall sing the music of your name.

Soft in the evening walk my Lord and I,

All the sheep of His pasture

Fare so wondrously fine; His sheep am I.

Waters cool,         [In the valley]

Pastures green,     [On the mountain]

In the evening     

Walk my Lord and I.

Dark the night,     [In the valley],

Rough the way,    [On the mountain],

Step by step...      [Step by step]

My Lord and I.

 

2. 

Through the streets of the city in the darkness of the night,

Far from the fold, He heard my lonely cry.

Now I sit at His table in the palace of light;

His sheep am I.
