Memorial Hymn Sing

November 7th, 2021


Prelude: 100 Years – By Five for Fighting


I'm fifteen for a moment Caught in between ten and twenty And I'm just dreaming Counting the ways to where you are.


I'm twenty-two for a moment And she feels better than ever And we're on fire Making our way back from Mars.


Fifteen, there's still time for you Time to buy and time to lose Fifteen, there's never a wish better than this When you only got a hundred years to live.


I'm thirty-three for a moment Still the man, but you see I'm a "they" A kid on the way, babe A family on my mind.


I'm forty-five for a moment The sea is high And I'm heading into a crisis Chasing the years of my life.


Fifteen, there's still time for you Time to buy and time to lose yourself Within a morning star.


Fifteen, I'm all right with you Fifteen, there's never a wish better than this When you only got a hundred years to live.


Half time goes by Suddenly you're wise Another blink of an eye Sixty-seven is gone The sun is getting high We're moving on.


I'm ninety-nine for a moment And dying for just another moment And I'm just dreaming Counting the ways to where you are.


Fifteen, there's still time for you Twenty-two, I feel her too Twenty-three, you're on your way Every day's a new day.


Uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh Uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh Uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh


Fifteen, there's still time for you Time to buy and time to choose Hey fifteen, there's never a wish better than this When you only got a hundred years to live.


Sentence:

I am the resurrection and the life, says the Lord; whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.

(John 11: 25, 26)


Gathering Hymn: Here I am Lord- By Dan Schutte, S.J.

In Memory of

Tony and Kae Sherbo,

Gus and Virgie Cosentino


Here I am 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 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?


Here I am 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 word to them. Whom shall I send?


Here I am 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 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?


Here I am, 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



The Gathering (Flames of the Spirit R. Duck)


We gather today to celebrate the lives of people that we name as saints

Some of them are living, others have completed their physical lives here on earth.

Some have touched us personally, others have touched and called into question the institutions and structures of our society

But all have shaken our being – all have been examples of lives of wholeness, working for justice.

We celebrate these persons and their lives in all aspects of God’s creation.


Common Praise Hymn: Breathe On Me, Breath of God. CP 649

In Memory of Walter and Mary Ellison


Breathe on me, breath of God; fill me with life anew, that I may love what thou dost love, and do what thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, breath of God, until my heart is pure, until my will is one with thine, to do and to endure.

Breathe on me, breath of God,

till I am wholly thine,

until this earthly part of me

glows with thy fire divine.


Breathe on me, Breath of God: so shall I never die, but live with thee the perfect life for thine eternity.

Hymn # 1: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty. CP384

In memory of Johnny Hreno, Doris and Horace Tays


Praise to the Lord,

the Almighty, the King of creation; O my soul, praise Him,

for He is thy health and salvation: All ye who hear,

brothers and sisters draw near, praise Him in glad adoration.

Praise to the Lord,

who o'er all things so wondrously reigneth, Shelters thee under His wings,

yea, so gently sustaineth; hast thou not seen

how thy entreaties have been Granted in what He ordaineth?

Praise to the Lord,

who doth prosper thy work and defend thee; surely His goodness and mercy

here daily attend thee; ponder anew

what the Almighty can do, if with His love he befriend thee.


Praise to the Lord,

who, when tempests their warfare are waging,

who, when the elements madly

around thee are raging,

biddeth them cease,

turneth their fury to peace,

whirlwinds and waters assuaging.


Prasie to the Lord,

who when darkness of sin is abounding,

who when the godless do triumph,

all virtue confounding,

sheddeth his light,

chaseth the horrors of night,

saints with his mercy surrounding.


Praise to the Lord,

O let all that is in me adore him! All that hath life and breath

come now with praises before him! Let the Amen

sound from his people again, gladly for aye we adore him.


Scripture Reading: Isaiah 25:6-9 …The Mountain of the Lord.

On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-matured wines, of rich food filled with marrow, of well-matured wines strained clear. And he will destroy on this mountain the shroud that is cast over all peoples, the sheet that is spread over all nations; he will swallow up death for ever. Then the Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces, and the disgrace of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken. It will be said on that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, so that he might save us. This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.


Hymn #2: Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah. CP565

In memory of Cecil Grant.


Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah, pilgrim through this barren land. I am weak, but thou art mighty; hold me with thy powerful hand. Bread of heaven, bread of heaven, feed me till I want no more,

feed me till I want no more.


Open now the crystal fountain whence the healing stream doth flow; let the fire and cloudy pillar lead me all my journey through. Strong deliverer, strong deliverer, be thou still my strength and shield; be thou still my strength and shield.


When I tread the verge of Jordan, bid my anxious fears subside; death of death, and hell's destruction, land me safe on Canaan's side: songs of praises, songs of praises, I will ever give to thee; I will ever give to thee.



Scripture Reading: Wisdom 3:1-9 … The Souls of the Righteous

But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment will ever touch them. In the eyes of the foolish they seemed to have died,and their departure was thought to be a disaster, and their going from us to be their destruction; but they are at peace. For though in the sight of others they were punished, their hope is full of immortality. Having been disciplined a little, they will receive great good, because God tested them and found them worthy of himself; like gold in the furnace he tried them, and like a sacrificial burnt-offering he accepted them. In the time of their visitation they will shine forth, and will run like sparks through the stubble. They will govern nations and rule over peoples,and the Lord will reign over them for ever.Those who trust in him will understand truth,and the faithful will abide with him in love,because grace and mercy are upon his holy ones,and he watches over his elect.


Hymn #3: Love Divine. CP485

In memory of Ann Steadman


Love divine, all loves excelling, joy of heaven to earth come down, fix in us thy humble dwelling; all thy faithful mercies crown.

Jesus, thou art all compassion; pure, unbounded love thou art; visit us with thy salvation, enter every trembling heart.


Come, almighty to deliver; let us all thy grace receive; suddenly return, and never, nevermore they temples leave.


Thee we would be always blessing, serve thee as thy hosts above, pray, and praise thee without ceasing, glory in thy perfect love.


Finish, then, thy new creation; pure and spotless let us be; let us see thy great salvation perfectly restored in thee,


changed from glory into glory, till in heaven we take our place, till we cast our crowns before thee, lost in wonder, love and praise.


Psalm 121

I lift up my eyes to the hills; from where is my help to come? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. The Lord will not let your foot be moved and the One who watches over you will not fall asleep. Behold, the One who keeps watch over Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.


The Lord, the Lord, watches over you; the Lord is your shade at your side, so that the sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil and shall keep you safe. The Lord shall watch over your going out and your coming in, from this time forth for evermore.

My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.



Hymn #4: Onward Christian Soldiers. CP499

In memory of Tom Crossland


Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before. Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe; forward into battle, see, his banners go.


refrain

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,

with the cross of Jesus going on before.


At the sign of triumph Satan’s host doth flee: on, then, Christian soldiers, on to victory! Hell’s foundations quiver at the shout of praise; brothers, lift your voices; loud your anthems raise.


refrain

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,

with the cross of Jesus going on before.


Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane, but the Church of Jesus constant will remain: gates of hell can never ‘gainst the church prevail; we have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.


refrain

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,

with the cross of Jesus going on before.


Onward, then, ye people, join our happy throng, blend with ours your voices in the triumph song: glory, laud and honor unto Christ, the King, this through countless ages men and angels sing.


refrain

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,

with the cross of Jesus going on before.



Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:50-58 … God gives us Victory.

What I am saying, brothers and sisters, is this: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I will tell you a mystery! We will not all die, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable body must put on imperishability, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When this perishable body puts on imperishability, and this mortal body puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will be fulfilled: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.’ ‘Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, my beloved, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord, because you know that in the Lord your labour is not in vain.


Hymn #5: Battle Hymn of the Republic/ Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory By Second Coming.

In memory of Peter Steadman


Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored. He hath loosed the fateful lightening of his terrible swift sword;

His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.


I have seen him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps; They have builded him an altar in the evening dews and damps. I have read his righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps; His day is marching on.


Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.


He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; He is sifting out the hearts of all before His judgment-seat. Oh, be swift, my soul to answer him; be jubilant, my feet! Our God is marching on.


Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.


In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me. As he died to make us holy, let us die that all be free! His truth is marching on

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.


He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave;

He is wisdom to the mighty, he is honor to the brave.

So the world shall be his footstool, every evil power his slave;

Our God is marching on.


Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.


Scripture Reading: 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18 … Coming of the Lord

But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who have died, so that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have died. For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will by no means precede those who have died. For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call and with the sound of God’s trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord for ever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.


Hymn #6: Yours Be the Glory, Risen, Conquering Son CP210

Requested by David P.


Yours be the glory, risen, conquering Son: endless is the victory over death you won. Angels robed in splendour rolled the stone away,

Kept the folded grave-clothes where your body lay.


refrain

Yours be the glory, risen, conquering Son:

endless is the victory over death you won.


See! Jesus meets us, rise from the tomb;

lovingly he greets us, scatters fear and gloom.

Let the church with gladness hymns of triumph sing,

for her Lord is living; death has lost its sting!


refrain

Yours be the glory, risen, conquering Son:

endless is the victory over death you won.


No more we doubt you, glorious Prince of life: What is life without you? Aid us in our strife;

make us more than conquerors through your deathless love; bring us safe through Jordan to your home above.


refrain

Yours be the glory, risen, conquering Son:

endless is the victory over death you won.



Scripture Reading: John 5:24-27 … The Hour is Here

Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgement, but has passed from death to life.

‘Very truly, I tell you, the hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself; and he has given him authority to execute judgement, because he is the Son of Man.


Hymn #7: On Eagle's Wings/ You Who Dwell in the Shelter of the Lord CP531

In memory of Ron Ashton


You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord, who abide in his shadow for life, say to the Lord: "My refuge,

my rock in whom I trust!"


refrain

And He will raise you up on eagles' wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of his hand.


Snare of the fowler will never capture you, and famine will bring you no fear: under his wings your refuge,

his faithfulness your shield.


refrain

And He will raise you up on eagles' wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of his hand.


You need not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day; though thousands fall about you,

near you it shall not come.


refrain

And He will raise you up on eagles' wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of his hand.


For to his angels he's given a command to guard you in all of your ways; upon their hands they will bear you up lest you dash your foot against a stone.


refrain

And He will raise you up on eagles' wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of his hand.


Scripture Reading: John 6:35-40 … Faith Gives Eternal Life Now

Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.’



Hymn #8: She Flies On/ She Comes Sailing on the Wind. CP656

In memory of Leigh Sherby


Refrain She comes sailing on the wind, her wings flashing in the sun; on a journey just begun, she flies on. And in the passage of her flight, her song rings out through the night; full of laughter, full of light, she flies on. Silent waters rocking on the morning of our birth, like an empty cradle waiting to be filled, and from the heart of God the Spirit

moved upon the earth, like a mother breathing life into her child. Many were the dreamers whose eyes were given sight when the Spirit filled their dreams

with life and form. Deserts turned to gardens,

broken hearts found new delight, and then down the ages still she flew on. Refrain She comes sailing on the wind, her wings flashing in the sun; on a journey just begun, she flies on. And in the passage of her flight, her song rings out through the night; full of laughter, full of light, she flies on. To a gentle girl in Galilee a gentle breeze she came, a whisper softly calling in the dark; the promise of a child of peace

whose reign would never end, Mary sang the Spirit song within her heart. Flying to the river, she waited circling high above the child now grown so full of grace. As he rose up from the water,

she swept down from the sky, and she carried him away in her embrace.

Refrain She comes sailing on the wind, her wings flashing in the sun; on a journey just begun, she flies on. And in the passage of her flight, her song rings out through the night; full of laughter, full of light, she flies on. Long after the deep darkness

that fell upon the world, after dawn returned in flame of rising sun, the Spirit touched the earth again,

again her wings unfurled, bringing life in wind and fire as she flew on. Refrain She comes sailing on the wind, her wings flashing in the sun; on a journey just begun, she flies on. And in the passage of her flight, her song rings out through the night; full of laughter, full of light, she flies on.

Scripture Reading: John 11:21-27 … The Raising of Lazarus

Martha said to Jesus, ‘Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that God will give you whatever you ask of him.’ Jesus said to her, ‘Your brother will rise again.’ Martha said to him, ‘I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.’ Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?’ She said to him, ‘Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one coming into the world.’


Hymn #9: Shine Jesus Shine. CP460

Requested by Lynn P.


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,

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.



Affirmation of Faith


Let us affirm our faith in God together:

We are not alone; we live in God's world. We believe in God: who has created and is creating, who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh, to reconcile and make new, who works in us and others by the Spirit. We trust in God. We are called to be the Church: to celebrate God's presence, to live with respect in Creation, to love and serve others, to seek justice and resist evil, to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen, our judge and our hope. In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us. We are not alone. Thanks be to God. Amen.


Offering Hymn: Fairest Lord Jesus CP619

Requested by Bill K.

Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature, O thou of Godhead’s human son: thee will I cherish, thee will I honor, thou, my soul's glory, joy, and crown.

Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands, robed in the blooming garb of spring; Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer, who makes the troubled heart to sing.

Fair is the sunshine, fairer still the moonlight, and fair the twinkling, starry host; Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer than all the angels heaven can boast.

All fairest beauty,

Heavenly and earthly,

Wondrously, Jesus, is found in thee;

None can be nearer,

fairer, or dearer

than thou, my Saviour, art to me.



Prayer of Thanksgiving (Celebrations along the way D. McRae-McMahon)

Hymn: Day Is Done -CP20

Requested by Donna C.


Day is done, but love unfailing dwells ever here; shadows fall, but hope, prevailing, calms every fear. God, our maker, none forsaking,

take our hearts, of love's own making; watch our sleeping, guard our waking, be always near.


Dark descends, but light unending shines through our night; you are with us, ever lending new strength to sight. One in love, your truth confessing, one in hope of heaven's blessing, may we see, in love's possessing, love's endless light!


Eyes will close, but you, unsleeping, watch by our side; death may come, in love's safekeeping still we abide. God of love, all evil quelling, sin forgiving, fear dispelling, stay with us, our hearts indwelling, this eventide.


The Blessing

May God give to us and to all those we love comfort and peace, light and joy, in this world and the next; and the blessing of God almighty, the Creator, the Redeemer, and the Sustainer, be with us and remain with us always. Amen.



Closing Hymn: It Is Well with My Soul. By Phillip P. Bliss.

In memory of Jerry and Annie Van Ryn


When peace like a river attendeth my way, when sorrows like sea billows roll; whatever my lot, You have taught me to say, It is well, it is well with my soul.


It is well with my soul, It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come, let this blest assurance control, that Christ has regarded my helpless estate, and has shed His own blood for my soul.


It is well with my soul, It is well, it is well with my soul.


My sin, O, the bliss of this glorious thought my sin, not in part, but the whole, is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more, praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!


It is well with my soul, It is well, it is well with my soul.


It is well, it is well with my soul.


And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight, the clouds be rolled back as a scroll, the trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend, Even so, it is well with my soul.


It is well with my soul,


It is well, it is well with my soul. it is well, it is well with my soul.



The Dismissal

The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms.

Blessed is the Lord, our strength and our salvation. Amen. Alleluia!
