Hymn: Amazing Grace

1. Amazing grace

how sweet the sound

that saved a wretch like me

I once was lost

but now am found 

was blind, but now I see

2. 'Twas grace that taught

my heart to fear

and grace my fears relieved

How precious did

that grace appear

the hour I first believed

3. Through many dangers,

toils and snares

I have already come

'Tis grace hath brought me

safe thus far 

and grace will lead me home

4. When we’ve been there

ten thousand years,

bright shining as the sun

We’ve no less days

to sing God’s praise

than when we’d first begun

Prayer and Commendation

The Lord's Prayer

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

Forgive us our trespasses

as we forgive those

who trespass against us

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil

For Thine is the kingdom,

the power, and the glory forever,



Hymn: Let There Be Peace On Earth

Let there be peace on earth

and let it begin with me

Let there be peace on earth

the peace that was meant to be

With God our creator

children all are we

Let us walk with each other

in perfect harmony

Let peace begin with me

let this be the moment now

With every step I take

let this be my solemn vow

To take each moment

and live each moment

in peace eternally

Let there be peace on earth

and let it begin with me

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me

an instrument of your peace

where there is hatred

let me sow love

where there is injury, pardon

where there is doubt, faith

where there is despair, hope

where there is darkness, light

and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,

grant that I may not

so much seek

to be consoled as to console;

to be understood,

as to understand;

to be loved, as to love;

for it is in giving 

that we receive,

it is in pardoning

that we are pardoned,

and it is in dying

that we are born

to Eternal Life.
