New Song

HYMN: ‘New Song’ by Tony Miles
Suggested tune: “Hyfrydol”

Lord, to you, we sing a new song;
age old faith has seen us through.
As we gather now to worship,
let our minds explore anew –
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
this our God, the three in one.
What a myst’ry!  What a wonder!
Blessed truth to us has come.

So, to God, as heav’nly Father,
thanks and praise we offer you.
By your Word you have created,
given life, sustained it too.
Through the good times, and the bad times,
never has your love grown cold.
Help us see your plan and purpose,
God of mercy, heal the world.

And, to God, in Saviour, Jesus,
thanks and praise we offer you.
Born on earth, you dwelt among us,
showed us, taught us, loved by few.
We rejected, crucified you,
on the cross you died in pain.
O forgive us!  Grant your promise,
let us share new life again.

Now, to God, eternal Spirit,
thanks and praise we offer you.
Breath of Life, come breathe upon us,
lead us in the work we do.
Make us people who are holy,
help us bear your fruit of love.
Take us, break us, and remake us,
Come, descend now, like a dove.

Praise the Lord now, from the heavens,
praise Him from the heights above,
praise Him all His glorious angels,
praise with us the God of love.
He is worthy of our worship,
lift our hearts to let Him reign.
All the world, yes all creation,
raise and magnify His Name!
