* SONG OF PRAISE To God Be the Glory United Methodist (Red) Hymnal # 98
1 To God be the glory great things He hath done, so loved He the world that He gave us His Son.
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin, and opened the life gates that all may go in.
Chorus Praise the Lord praise the Lord, let the earth hear His voice
Praise the Lord praise the Lord, let the people rejoice.
O come to the Father through Jesus the Son, and give Him the glory great things He has done.
2 O perfect redemption the purchase of blood, to ev’ry believer the promise of God.
The vilest offender who truly believes, that moment from Jesus a pardon receives
3 Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done,
and great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son. But purer and higher and greater will be
Our wonder our transport when Jesus we see. Repeat Chorus
Glory glory glory glory, give Him glory great things He has done
Glory glory glory glory, Give Him glory great things He has done. Repeat
* OPENING PRAYER
Glorious God, we come to worship and praise you in response to your voice that calls us to our home in you. We join with all the voices of the earth, together with all the voices of the heavens, to praise the glorious name of our God.
Your holiness is not limited to grand cathedrals or saintly persons, spectacular mountains or mountain-moving leaders.

* SONG OF SENDING FORTH Here I Am, Lord United Methodist (Red) Hymnal #593
- I, the Lord of sea and sky, I have heard my people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin, my hand will save.
I, who made the stars of night, I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear my light to them? Whom shall I send?
Chorus Here am I, Lord. Is it I, Lord? I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me. I will hold your people in my heart.
- I, the Lord of snow and rain, I have borne my people’s pain.
I have wept for love of them. They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone, Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak my words to them. Whom shall I send? Chorus
- I, the Lord of wind and flame, I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them. My hand will save.
Finest bread I will provide, till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give my life to them. Whom shall I send? Chorus
