Hymn Sing a New World into Being
Sing a new world into being, sound a bold and hopeful theme.
Find a tune for silent yearnings. Lend your voice and dare to dream:
Dream a church where all who worship find their lives and loves belong
Sing a new world into being,, sing as Christ inspires your song!
Sing a new world into being, where each gender, class and race
Brings its rainbow gifts and colors to God’s limitless embrace
Where the lines that once divided form instead the ties that bind
Sing a new world into being, risk transforming heart and mind!
Sing a new world into being, where the homeless find a home,
Where no children ever hunger, but are filled with God’s shalom;
Where all people work for justice, where all hate and vengeance cease
Sing a new world into being: raise the harmonies of peace.
Sing a new world into being. Join the ancient prophets cry
For a time of health and plenty when all tears have been wiped dry;
When compassion flows like waters, pouring balm on all who grieve.
Sing a new world into being: live the promise you believe!

Hymn of the Day Praise, My Soul, the God of Heaven
Praise, my soul, the God of heaven; joyfully your tribute bring.
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven, evermore God’s praises sing.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Praises everlasting ring!
God be praised for grace and favor to our forebears in distress.
God be praised, the same forever, slow to chide and swift to bless.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Glorious is God’s faithfulness!
Frail as summer’s flow’r we flourish, blows the wind and it is gone;
but, as mortals rise and perish, God endures unchanging on.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Praise the great Eternal One!
Angels sing in adoration, in God’s presence, face to face.
Sun and moon and all creation, all who dwell in time and space.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Praise with us the God of grace!
