SONG: AT THE NAME OF JESUS

Artist: Salisbury Cathedral Choir
Words/Music: Noel/Brierley
Recording: Priory 2013

At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow,
every tongue confess him King of glory now;
'tis the Father's pleasure we should call him Lord,
who from the beginning was the mighty Word.

Name Him, Christians, name Him, with love strong as death
but with awe and wonder, and with bated breath;
He is God the Saviour, He is Christ the Lord
ever to be worshipped, trusted and adored.

Surely, this Lord Jesus shall return again,
with His Father's glory with His angel train;
for all wreaths of empire meet upon his brow,
and our hearts confess him King of glory now.

SONG: PSALM 46: GOD IS OUR REFUGE AND OUR STRENGTH

Artist: Scottish Philharmonic Singers
Words/Music: Psalm 46/Anon
Label: Abbey 282830

God is our refuge and our strength, in straits a present aid;
Therefore, although the earth remove, we will not be afraid:
Though hills amidst the seas be cast; Though waters roaring make,
And troubled be; yea, though the hills, by swelling seas do shake.
A river is, whose streams do glad the city of our God;
The holy place, wherein the Lord most high hath his abode.
God in the midst of her doth dwell; nothing shall her remove:
The Lord to her an helper will, and that right early, prove.

The Lord's my Shepherd I'll not want
He makes me lie in pastures green
He leads me by the still still waters
His goodness restores my soul

Refrain:
And I will trust in You alone
And I will trust in You alone
For Your endless mercy follows me
Your goodness will lead me home


He guides my ways in righteousness
And He anoints my head with oil
And my cup it overflows with joy
I feast on His pure delights
Refrain:

And though I walk the darkest path
I will not fear the evil one
For You are with me
And Your rod and staff
Are the comfort I need to know

SONG: 10,000 REASONS

Artist: The New Irish Choir & Orchestra
Words/Music: Matt Redman, Josh Myrin
Recording: Elevation 2016

Refrain:
Bless the Lord O my soul
O my soul
Worship His Holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your Holy name.


The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning
It's time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes.
Refrain:

You're rich in love and You're slow to anger
Your name is great and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.
Refrain:

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore
Refrain:

SONG: WHERE THE ROAD RUNS OUT

Artist: Knox Church Choir, Dunedin
Words/Music: Gibson
Recording: Private CD 798

Where the road runs out and the signposts end,
where we come to the edge of today,
be the God of Abraham for us;
send us out upon our way.

Refrain
Lord, you were our beginning,
the faith that gave us birth.
We look to you, our ending,
our hope for heaven and earth.


When the coast is left and we journey on
to the rim of the sky and the sea,
be the sailor’s friend, be the dolphin Christ,
lead us on to eternity.
Refrain:

When the clouds are low and the wind is strong,
when tomorrow’s storm draws near,
be the spirit bird hov’ring overhead
who will take away our fear.
Refrain:

SONG: IN THE LORD IS MY JOY AND SALVATION

Artist: St Thomas’ Music Group
Words/Music: Margaret Rizza
Recording: Alliance Music

In the Lord is my joy and salvation
He gives light to all his creation.
In the Lord is my joy and salvation,
He gives peace and true consolation.

SONG: ALL PEOPLE THAT ON EARTH DO DWELL

Artist: Scottish Philharmonic Singers
Words/Music: Kethe/Bourgeois
Recording: Abbey 282830

All people that on earth do dwell,
sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
him serve with mirth, his praise forth tell.
Come ye before him and rejoice.

Know that the Lord is God indeed;
without our aid he did us make;
we are his folk; he doth us feed,
and for his sheep he doth us take.

O enter then his gates with praise;
approach with joy his courts unto;
praise, laud, and bless his name always,
for it is seemly so to do.

For why? The Lord our God is good;
his mercy is forever sure;
his truth at all times firmly stood,
and shall from age to age endure.

To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
The God whom Heaven and earth adore,
From men and from the angel host
Be praise and glory evermore.
Amen.
