Psalm: REJOICE ALLELUIA


Rejoice alleluia, rejoice alleluia, rejoice alleluia, all men will be brothers some day

In sincerity, in truth, honour, and freedom


If I could believe it was true, I'd dedicate myself to you

I'd give you all the strength I have, never be down, never feel sad

Oh, if I could believe it was true, I'd dedicate my life to you

Every second, every minute, every hour, of every day

I would still rejoice in the hope I'd hear you say


Rejoice alleluia, rejoice alleluia, rejoice alleluia, all men will be brothers some day

In sincerity, in truth, honour, and freedom

Acclamation:

CHRIST HAS DIED AND HE IS RISEN


Christ has died and He is risen

He lived for us, He died for us, He rose from the dead

He will come again to save our souls, He is the risen Lord


Christ has died and He is risen

Christ has died, He will come again

Christ has died and He is risen

He died for us, for all mankind


Communion:

PUT THE MESSAGE IN THE BOX


And if you listen now, you will hear

A new sound coming in as the old one disappears

See the world in just one grain of sand. You’d better take a closer look

Don’t let it slip right through your hands.

Won’t you please hear the call. The world says


Ch: Put the message in the box, put the box into the car

Drive the car around the world, Until you get heard


And now is the moment, please understand

The road is wide open to the heart of every man

A few simple words that he could understand

He don’t want tomorrow if it’s just crumbling into sand

Won’t you please hear the call. The world says


Chorus


And the world says, “Give a little bit, give a little bit of your love to me

Cos I’m waiting here with open arms”

He says, “Give a little bit, give a little bit of your soul to me

Cos I’m waiting to behold your many charms”

Is that love in the air? The world says Chorus x 2.


Reflection: New Beginnings


How often we wish for another chance

to have a fresh beginning

A chance to blot out our mistakes

and change failure into winning.

It does not take a new year

to make a brand new start.

It only takes the deep desire to try with all your heart.

To live a little better

and to always be forgiving.

To add a little sunshine

to the world in which we are living.

So, never give up in despair

and think that you are through,

For there’s always a tomorrow

and a chance to start anew.

Recessional: OH HAPPY DAY


Oh happy day, oh happy day

When Jesus washed, oh when He washed

When Jesus washed, He washed my sins away

Oh happy day


[x2]

He taught me how to watch, fight and pray

Fight and pray

And live rejoicing every day, every day


Oh happy day, oh happy day

When Jesus washed, oh when He washed

When Jesus washed, He washed my sins away

Oh happy day, oh happy day.
