Morning worship

The band played ‘All That I Am’ as the call to worship this morning.

All that I am, all I can be, all that I have,
All that is me, accept and use, Lord,
As you would choose, Lord, right now, today.
Take every passion, every skill,
Take all my dreams and bend them to your will.
My all I give, Lord,
For you I’ll live, Lord, come what may.

Often I come with my problems and cares, running to you when distressed.
But I must bring you the whole of my life; Lord, I must give you my best.

All that I am, all I can be, all that I have, all that is me, accept and use, as you would choose, right now , today.
Take every passion, every skill, take all my dreams and bend them to your will.
My all I give, Lord, for you I’ll live, Lord, come what may.

Life has no purpose unless it is yours, life without you has no goal.
All that fulfils me is doing your will, knowing that you’re in control.

All that I am, all I can be, all that I have, all that is me, accept and use, Lord, as you would choose, Lord, right now, today.
Take every passion, every skill, take all my dreams and bend them to your will.
My all I give, Lord, for you I’ll live, Lord, come what may.
All that I am.

Today’s worship was led by Commissioners Carol and Ivor Telfer. They challenged us to lay our all on the altar, and daring to be different, to live like Christ. This was tie to the band’s message as we played ‘My All Is On the Altar’ (M.Calvert).

My all is on the altar,
I’m waiting for the fire;
Waiting, waiting, waiting,
I’m waiting for the fire.

Worship was concluded as the band played ‘I’ve Been Changed’.

Well, I’ve been to the river, I’ve been baptized.
I’ve been washed in the blood of the Lamb.
I’ve been changed from the creature that once I was
And redeemed is now my name.

Chorus:
I’ve been changed, I’ve been newborn,
All my life has been rearranged.
What a difference it made when the Lord came and stayed in my heart
Oh, yes, I’ve been changed.

Though my sins were as scarlet, they’re white as snow.
I was bound, but today I am free.
I was lost in the darkness, but now am found.
I was blind, but now I see.

Chorus

Like the poor Hebrew children, I wandered long.
In a bare desert land to and fro.
But I’ve crossed over Jordan to Canaan’s land
Where the milk and honey flow.

Chorus

When at last in His presence, I stand above.
He will wipe all the tears from my eyes.
And I’ll thank Him for giving a wretch like me
Lasting Hope beyond the skies.

Chorus

What a difference it made when the Lord came and stayed in my heart
Oh, yes, I’ve been changed.
I’m changed
