Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Words by Robert Robinson (1758) Add. lyrics by Page CXVI, Arrangement by Page CXVI

Come, Thou Fount of ev’ry blessing,
tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the Mount, I’m fixed upon it;
Mount of Thy redeeming love.

How Great Thou Art by Stuart K. Hine, Based on an arrangement by Page CXVI

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.
Then sings my soul to my Savior, God.
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

We spent some time looking at Matthew 21:28-29 where Jesus invites us to draw near to him and rest in his perfect care.

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

It’s You by Dave Wilton and Asher Seevnick

Son of man reach out your hand and touch my weary heart.
Son of man reach out your hand and heal my failing heart.
It’s you that I need.
It’s you that I need.

After a time of silent reflection, we prayed this prayer based on Psalm 23 together.

Jesus, Lord of rest, You are my shepherd.
In you I have all that I need.

You make me rest in green meadows;
You lead me beside quiet waters.
You refresh my soul.
You guide me along right paths,
bringing honor to your name.

Even when I walk
through the darkest valley
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.
My cup overflows with blessings.

Surely your goodness and
failing love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.

Amen.

Psalm 62 (My Soul Finds Rest) by Stuart Townend and Aaron Keyes

My soul find rest in God alone,
my Rock and my salvation,
a fortress strong against my foes,
and I will not be shaken.
Though lips may bless and hearts may curse,
and lies like arrows pierce me,
I’ll fix my heart on righteousness,
I’ll look to Him who hears me.

Rock of Ages – Words: Augustus M. Toplady (1776), Contemporary chorus by Page CXVI (2009). Arrangement by Page CXVI and David Wilton

Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling.
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless look to Thee for grace.
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior or I die.
