THE PATHWAY TO GOD’S HEALING

Come, let us return to the Lord. For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us. He will revive us after two days. He will raise us up on the third day that we may live before Him. So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord.

–         Hosea 6:1-3a

Hymn of Commitment – “Amazing Grace! How Sweet the Sound”

Newton-Shaw

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved;

 

How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed!

 

 

 

Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come;

 

‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.

 

 

 

The Lord has promised good to me, His word my hope secures;

 

He will my shield and portion be as long as life endures.

 

 

 

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 first begun.

 

 

 

Closing Words

 

Benediction

 

 

 

Choral Benediction

 

 

 

O God of every nation, of every race and land,

 

Redeem all of creation with Your almighty hand.

 

Where hate and fear divide us, and bitter words are hurled,

 

In love and mercy guide us, and heal our strife torn world.
