THIS DAY GOD GIVES ME


This day God gives me    Strength of high heaven

Sun and moon shining    Flame in my hearth

Flashing of lightning        Wind in its swiftness

Deeps of the ocean,        firmness of earth             

       

This day God gives me                    Strength as my guardian

Might to uphold me,                       wisdom as guide

Your eyes are watchful,                 Your ears are listening

Your lips are speaking                     Friend at my side.

God’s way is my way,                      God’s shield is ‘round me,

God’s host defends me,                saving from ill

Angels of heaven                              drive from me   always

All that would harm me,                stand by me still.

Rising I thank you,                            Mighty and strong one

King of creation                                Giver of rest

Firmly confessing                             God in three persons

Oneness of Godhead                      Trinity blest.

Psalm:   We are God’s people, the flock of the Lord.

Center of my Life

Chorus:

Oh Lord, you are the Center of my life.

I will always praise you, I will always serve you

I will always keep you in my sight.

Keep me safe O god, I take refuge in you

I say to the Lord, “You are my God.”

My happiness lies in you alone.

My happiness lies in you alone.

I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel

Who even at night directs my heart

I keep the Lord ever in my sight

Since He is at my right hand, I shall stand firm.

And so my heart rejoices my soul is glad.

Even if safety shall my body rest

For you will not leave my soul among the dead.

Nor let your beloved know decay.  

I Am the Bread of Life

I am the bread of life
He who comes to me shall not hunger
He who believes in me shall not thirst
No one can come to me
Unless the father beckons  

And I will raise you up
And I will raise you up And I will raise you up
On the last day.


The bread that I will give
Is my flesh for the life of the world
And if you eat of this bread
You shall live forever You shall live forever. CHORUS
Unless you eat
Of the flesh of the Son of Man
And drink of his blood,
And drink of his blood,
You shall not have life within you.

I am the resurrection, I am the life
If you believe in me
Even though you die
You shall live forever.  


Yes, lord I believe
That you are the Christ
The son of God
Who have come into the world.
