Welcome to Praise and Worship for this week.
Hope you remembered to change your clocks forward 1 hour to “summer time” !!!!!!
The praise songs come from the list that Ian Gillis our organist had already chosen for this week, so many thanks to Ian for this.
The format is the same as last week: recordings taken from our extensive audio archives, to which we have added the rolling words so you can follow along.
I am sure this past week has had its difficulties for you and your family. It seems that life is fractured and in pieces, as it may seem for us as God’s people. This is not helped by the fact that we can’t physically meet together in one place, but the thing about Worship is - that through Worship we can get God’s perspective.
As it says in Isaiah Chapter 43: v1.
But now, O Jacob, listen to the LORD who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine.
Look out for the “fractured and in pieces” theme in the Anthem, “Across the Lands”, a Hymn written by two of the best know modern hymn writers, Keith Getty & Stuart Townend. This is sung by our Choir with Ian Gillis on the organ – This same song is then taken up by the Worship band (allowing a few seconds for Ian to get down from the Choir Loft to the Keyboard). Despite the disparate parts - in the end we get the whole picture and God’s Perspective.
Praise, I will praise you, Lord
The Splendour of the King
Anthem - "Across the Lands"
Guide me O thou great Jehovah
