Prayer for the Synod:

We stand before you, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in your name.
with you alone to guide us, make yourself at home in our hearts. 
teach us the way we must go, and how we are to pursue it. 
We are weak and sinful, do not let us promote disorder. 
do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path, nor partially influence our actions. 
Let us find in you our unity
so that we may journey together to eternal life and not stray 
from the way of truth and what is right. 
All this we ask of you, who are at work in every place and time, 
in the communion of the father and the son forever and ever. Amen.

Glory and Praise to Our God


Refrain:
Glory and praise to our God,
Who alone gives light to our days.
Many are the blessings he bears
to those who trust in his ways.


Verses:
We, the daughters and sons of him
Who built the valleys and plains,
Praise the wonders our God has done
in ev’ry heart that sings.


(Refrain)
Glory and praise to our God,
Who alone gives light to our days.
Many are the blessings he bears
to those who trust in his ways.


In his wisdom he strengthens us,
Like gold that’s tested in fire.
Though the power of sin prevails,
Our God is there to save.


(Refrain)
Glory and praise to our God,
Who alone gives light to our days.
Many are the blessings he bears
to those who trust in his ways.


Ev’ry moment of ev’ry day
Our God is waiting to save,
Always ready to seek the lost,
To answer those who pray.


(Refrain)
Glory and praise to our God,
Who alone gives light to our days.
Many are the blessings he bears
to those who trust in his ways.


God has watered our barren land
And spent his merciful rain.
Now the rivers of life run full
For anyone to drink.


(Refrain)
Glory and praise to our God,
Who alone gives light to our days.
Many are the blessings he bears
to those who trust in his ways.

 


Gloria

Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to people of good will.
We praise you, we bless you,
we adore you, we glorify you.
We give you thanks for your great glory,
Lord God, heavenly King,
O God, almighty Father.
Lord Jesus Christ, only Begotten Son,
Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,
You take away the sins of the world
have mercy on us;
You take away the sins of the world,
receive our prayer;
You are seated at the right hand of the Father:
have mercy on us.
For you alone are the Holy One,
You alone are the Lord,
You alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,
With the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father.

Responsorial Psalm 67

O God let all the nations praise you.

 


Profession of Faith

I believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages,
God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven:
(please bow) and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day,
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the Prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.  Amen.


Preparation of the Gifts

***Music is for the Sunday 9:00am Mass only.***

As Christ Is For Us

  1. In the bread we share with the hungry,
    in the help we give to the poor,
    in the kindness we show to the stranger
    we find Christ the open door.

Refrain

So we rise with him each morning,
and we work, as work we must
to be Christ for others as Christ is for us,
to be Christ for others as Christ is for us.

  1. May the bread we share give us courage
    to restore the earth in this time.
    For the sake of our children’s descendants
    let us honor God’s ancient design.

Refrain

So we rise with him each morning,
and we work, as work we must
to be Christ for others as Christ is for us,
to be Christ for others as Christ is for us.

Bridge

And as we care for each other
so must we care for our home:
air that we breathe,
waters that run,
flowing with life for the good of all.

  1. May the bread we share keep us mindful
    and the fruit of the vine make us one.
    Let the whole human fam’ly together
    heed the cry of our island home.

Refrain

So we rise with him each morning,
and we work, as work we must
to be Christ for others as Christ is for us,
to be Christ for others as Christ is for us.

 


Communion

How Great Thou Art

 

  1. O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
    Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,
    I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
    Thy pow'r thruout the universe displayed!

Refrain

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

  1. When thru the woods and forest glades I wander
    And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
    When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
    And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze.

Refrain
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

 

  1. And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
    Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
    That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
    He bled and died to take away my sin!

Refrain
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

  1. When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
    And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
    Then I shall bow in humble adoration
    And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!

Refrain
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

 


Sending Forth

How Can I Keep From Singing


  1. My life flows on in endless song
    Above earth's lamentation.
                I hear the real though far-off hymn
                That hails a new creation.
               
    Refrain
    No storm can shake my inmost calm,
                While to that rock I'm clinging.
                Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,
                How can I keep from singing?

  2. Through all the tumult and the strife,
    I hear that music ringing;
                It sounds and echoes in my soul;
                How can I keep from singing?
    Refrain
    No storm can shake my inmost calm,
                While to that rock I'm clinging.
                Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,
                How can I keep from singing?

  3. What, though the tempest ‘round me roar,
    I hear the truth it liveth.
                What though the darkness ‘round me close,
                Songs in the night it giveth.
    Refrain
    No storm can shake my inmost calm,
                While to that rock I'm clinging.
                Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,
                How can I keep from singing?

  4. When tyrants tremble, sick with fear,
    And hear their death knells ringing;
                When friends rejoice both far and near,
                How can I keep from singing?
    Refrain
    No storm can shake my inmost calm,
                While to that rock I'm clinging.
                Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,
                How can I keep from singing?

  5. The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart,
    A fountain ever springing.
                All things are mine since I am his;
                How can I keep from singing?
    Refrain
    No storm can shake my inmost calm,
                While to that rock I'm clinging.
                Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth,
                How can I keep from singing?
