Morning meeting 07/07/2019

Our meeting today was led by CSM Melvyn Shanks.

To prepare us for worship the band played the hymn tune Holy Ground

When I walk through the doors I sensed His presence
And I knew this was a place where love abounds
For this is a temple the God we love abides here
Oh we are standing in His presence on holy ground

We are standing on holy ground
For I know that there are angels all around
Let us praise Jesus now
For we are standing in His presence on holy ground

In His presence I know there is joy beyond all measure
And at His feet sweet peace of mind can still be found
For when we have a need He is still the answer
Reach out and claim it for we are standing on holy ground

We are standing on holy ground
For I know that there are angels all around
Let us praise Jesus now
For we are standing in His presence on holy ground

During worship the band provided the song arrangement As The Deer (Martin Nystrom arr. James Wright)

As the deer pants for the water,
So my soul longs after You.
You alone are my heart’s desire,
And I long to worship You.

You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my heart’s desire,
And I long to worship You.

I want You more than gold or silver,
Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy giver,
And the apple of my eye.

You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my heart’s desire,
And I long to worship You.

You’re my friend and You are my brother
Even though You are a King.
I love You more than any other,
So much more than anything.

You alone are my strength, my shield;
To You alone may my spirit yield.
You alone are my heart’s desire,
And I long to worship You.

Following on from CMS Allan Scott’s message last week we continued looking at The Great Commission this morning with CSM Melvyn Shanks. He reminded us that we have each been tasked to be God’s disciples, to spread the truth about the cross to everyone we meet.

The band concluded worship with Lord, If Your Presence, which reminds us that as we share the truth about the cross with others, that we must do it in God’s name.

Lord, if your presence does not go with us,
Please do not send us up from here.
How will anyone know we are your people
Unless you go before us?

Lord, if your favour does not rest on us
We dare not move beyond this place,
How will anyone know we go in your name
Unless your blessing is over us?

So we stand within your presence,
And humbly seek your grace;
Father Almighty, Jehovah, Saviour,
We long to meet you face to face.
Let your glory fall upon us,
Convict, inspire, provide;
Father Almighty, Jehovah, Saviour,
Your holy presence is our guide.

Lord if your presence does not stay with us,
Please do not send us up from here.
How will anyone hear of truth and goodness
Unless your Word speaks through us?

Lord, if your presence is not love in us
How can we minister your grace?
How will anyone feel your tender mercy
Unless your heart is in us?

So we stand within your presence…
