Opening Hymn: CP 537
In the Cross of Christ I Glory
In the cross of Christ I glory,
towering o'er the wrecks of time;
all the light of sacred story
gathers round its head sublime.

When the woes of life o'ertake me,
hopes deceive, and fears annoy,
never shall the cross forsake me:
lo! it glows with peace and joy.

When the sun of bliss is beaming
light and love upon my way,
from the cross the radiance streaming
adds more luster to the day.

Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,
by the cross are sanctified;
peace is there that knows no measure,
joys that through all time abide.

In the cross of Christ I glory,
towering o'er the wrecks of time;
all the light of sacred story
gathers round its head sublime.

Gradual Hymn: CP 179
Tree of Life and Awesome Mystery
Tree of Life and awesome mystery,
in your death we are reborn;
though you die in all of history,
still you rise with every morn,
still you rise with every morn.

Seed that dies to rise in glory,
may we see ourselves in you;
if we learn to live your story
we may die to rise anew,
we may die to rise anew.

We remember truth once spoken,
love passed on through act and word;
every person lost and broken
wears the body of our Lord,
wears the body of our Lord.

Gentle Jesus, mighty Spirit,
come inflame our hearts anew.
We may all your joy inherit
if we bear the cross with you,
if we bear the cross with you.

Christ, you lead and we shall follow,
stumbling though our steps may be;
one with you in joy and sorrow,
we the river, you the sea,
we the river, you the sea. 

Offertory Hymn: CP 49
Draw Near and Take
Draw near and take the body of your Lord,
and drink with faith the blood for you outpoured.

Saved by his body, hallowed by his blood,
with souls refreshed we give our thanks to God.

Salvation's giver, Christ, the only Son,
by his dear cross and blood the victory won.

Let us approach with faithful hearts sincere,
and take the pledges of salvation here.

The Lord in this world rules his saints, and shields;
to all believers life eternal yields;

with heavenly bread makes those who hunger whole;
gives living waters to the thirsting soul.

Before your presence, Lord, all people bow.
In this your feast of love be with us now.

Hymn during Communion: CP 579
O Lord My God
Refrain: O Lord my God, O Lord my God,
why do you seem so far from me,
O Lord my God?

Night and morning I make my prayer:
peace for this place and help for there;
waiting and wondering, waiting and wondering,
does God care? Does God care? [Refrain]

Pain and suffering unbound and blind
plague the progress of humankind,
always demanding, always demanding,
does God mind? Does God mind? [Refrain]

Why, oh why do the wicked thrive,
poor folk perish, the rich survive;
begging the question, begging the question,
is God alive? Is God alive? [Refrain]

Turn again as you hear my plea;
tend the torment in all I see:
loving and healing, loving and healing,
set me free. Set me free. [Refrain]

Closing Hymn: CP 551
My Faith Looks Up to Thee
My faith looks up to thee,
thou Lamb of Calvary,
Saviour divine.
Now hear me while I pray;
take all my guilt away.
O let me from this day
be wholly thine!

May thy rich grace impart
strength to my fainting heart,
my zeal inspire.
As thou hast died for me,
O may my love to thee
pure, warm, and changeless be,
a living fire.

While life's dark maze I tread,
and griefs around me spread,
be thou my guide;
bid darkness turn to day,
wipe sorrow's tears away,
nor let me ever stray
from thee aside.

When ends life's transient dream,
when death's cold sullen stream
shall o'er me roll,
blest Saviour, then, in love,
fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
a ransomed soul.
