What Gets Me Through



When you walk to the edge of all the light you have

and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown,

you must believe that one of two things will happen:
There will be something solid for you to stand upon,

or, you will be taught how to fly .

--Patrick Overton





To everything there is a season,a time for every purpose under the sun.

A time to be born and a time to die;

a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

a time to kill and a time to heal ...

a time to weep and a time to laugh;

a time to mourn and a time to dance ...

a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;

a time to lose and a time to seek;

a time to rend and a time to sew;

a time to keep silent and a time to speak;

a time to love and a time to hate;

a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8



Our Father, who art in heaven

hallowed be thy Name,

thy kingdom come,

thy will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.

Amen.



You are Mine

By David Haas


I will come to you in the silence

I will lift you from all your fear

You will hear My voice

I claim you as My choice

Be still, and know I am near


I am hope for all who are hopeless

I am eyes for all who long to see

In the shadows of the night,

I will be your light

Come and rest in Me


Chorus: Do not be afraid, I am with you

I have called you each by name

Come and follow Me

I will bring you home

I love you and you are mine


I am strength for all the despairing

Healing for the ones who dwell in shame

All the blind will see,

the lame will all run free

And all will know My name


Chorus: Do not be afraid, I am with you

I have called you each by name

Come and follow Me

I will bring you home

I love you and you are mine


I am the Word that leads all to freedom

I am the peace the world cannot give

I will call your name,

embracing all your pain

Stand up, now, walk, and live


Chorus: Do not be afraid, I am with you

I have called you each by name

Come and follow Me

I will bring you home

I love you and you are mine


We Are Called


Come! Live in the light!

Shine with the joy and the love of the Lord!

We are called to be light for the Kingdom,

to live in the freedom of the city of God!


Refrain: We are called to act with justice,

we are called to love tenderly,

we are called to serve one another;

to walk humbly with God!


Come! Open your heart!

Show Your mercy to all those in fear!

We are called to be hope for the hopeless

so all hatred and blindness will be no more!


Refrain


Sing! Sing a new song!

Sing of that great day when all will be one!

God will reign, and we'll walk with each other

as sisters and brothers

united in love!
