L: Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being,
praise His holy name.
P: Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all His benefits—
L: Who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
P: Who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
L: Who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Hymn: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty                         #321
1. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, who rules all creation.
my soul, praise God who alone is your health and salvation!
Come, all who hear; sisters and brothers draw near,
joining in glad adoration.
2. Praise to the Lord, who in all things so wondrously reigning;
hides you with sheltering wings, ever gently sustaining!
Have you not seen how your heart’s wishes have been
granted through God’s kind ordaining?
3. Praise to the Lord, who will prosper your work, who defends you; surely God’s merciful goodness here daily attends you;
ponder anew what the Almighty can do, when in great love God befriends you.
4. Praise to the Lord, and with all that is in me adoring,
all who have life and breath, come with glad praises outpouring!
Let the Amen sound from his people again: not and forever adoring!

Hymn: Praise, my soul, the King of heaven                    #407 (V 1, 3&5)
1. Praise, my soul, the King of heaven; to his feet thy tribute bring; ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
who like me his praise should sing? Praise him, praise him,
praise him, praise him, praise the everlasting King.
3. Father-like he tends and spares us; well our feeble frame he knows; in his hands he gently bears us, rescues us from all our foes: praise him, praise him, praise him, praise him,
widely as his mercy flows.
5. Angels, help us to adore him, ye behold him face to face;
sun and moon, bow down before him, dwellers all in time and space, praise him, praise him, praise him, praise him,
praise with us the God of grace.

Doxology & Dedication

 The Prayer of the People & 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; and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors;
and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
Forever and ever. Amen

Hymn: Shine Jesus, shine (Lord, the light of your love is shinning) #376
1. Lord the light of your love is shining in the midst of the darkness, shining; Jesus, light of the world, shine upon us. Set us free, by the truth you now bring us. Shine on me, shine on me.
Refrain
Shine Jesus shine, fill this land with the father’s glory;
Blaze, Spirit blaze, set our hearts on fire.
Flow river flow; flood the nations with grace and mercy;
send forth your word, Lord, and let there be light!
2. Lord I come to your awesome presence, from the shadows into your radiance; by the blood I may enter your brightness.
Search me, try me, consume all my darkness. Shine on me, shine on me.
[Refrain]
3. As we gaze on your kingly brightness, so our faces display your likeness, ever changing from glory to glory:
mirrored here may our lives tell your story. Shine on me, shine on me.
[Refrain]

Benediction

 Choral Amen: 

MAY THE LORD, MIGHTY LORD
May the Lord, mighty Lord, Bless and keep us forever.
Grant us peace, perfect, peace, Courage in every endeavour.
Open your eyes and see his face, Know his grace forever.
May the Lord, mighty Lord, Bless and keep us forever.
