Song – As we gather

(Nathan Creek)

Verse 1
As we gather in your presence oh Lord.
A community of life in your name.
In our gathering here, may your spirit be near.
As we gather in your presence oh Lord.

Chorus
We are gathered here with you.
Teach us, and heal us this day.
Fill our hearts with peace and love,
as we come near to you.

Verse 2
As we pray in your presence oh Lord.
Asking you how we can live in your name.
Speak your will to our ear. Take our doubt and our fear.
As we pray in your presence oh Lord.

Verse 3
As we worship in your presence oh Lord.
Showing you that we can live in your name.
May our actions reflect, that it’s you we respect.
As we worship in your presence oh Lord.

Verse 4
As we praise you in your presence oh Lord.
Thanking you that we can live in your name.
You are wonderful and, we’ve been saved through your plan.
As we praise you in your presence oh Lord.

Whatever wilderness the Spirit has brought you to:

walk in peace, under the shelter of the Most High
walk in faith, knowing Christ walks with you. Amen.

SONG – The Great I am is here

(Nathan Creek)

Verse 1
Wandering through the desert is hard
Trying to find your way with just the stars in the sky
Dusty, dry I wait upon you
Yearning for the light to shine through

Chorus
The great I AM is here.
Everywhere, in everything
I AM here. Let us sing
The great I AM is here.
Everywhere, in everything
I AM here. Let us sing

Verse 2
I AM in the desert of old
In the city, each small place, then now and always
All this love and pain that we see
Does it make sense? Tell us how we should be?

Verse 3
Teach me, lead me, show me the way
Guide me through life’s desert. Never lead me astray.
Oh what a beautiful sight
The brilliant stars you placed for us, in the night

Verse 4
Walk along the labyrinth of life
The sorrow and the pain, often lead us to strife
But then I gaze into the depth of the night
Your healing power lifts us into the light
