Hey Mary 03:16
Hey Mary, there’s an angel in your house! Said, ‘Mary have I got some news for you. You seem to think you’re nothing much but Heaven’s coming close enough to touch, yeah! Hey Mary, God is coming here through you! There is no such thing as ordinary now God is here Every life and breath is blessed, you never know when God might appear

Mary, what was your response? Mary, what was your response? You were visited, disrupted, changed. And you were esteemed, treasured, and chosen. You were confused, enlightened, awestruck. And you were assured, reassured, confident. Mary, what then was your response? Chorus My soul glorifies the Lord, I am bursting with praises for the Lord! With a spirit of pure delight, I rejoice in God my Saviour. He has remembered me, He see's me as I am, and I am blessed! I am blessed to be a blessing, for more than my own generation! For He has done great things. Yes He has done GREAT THINGS

We are held by grace Humble hearts cast open Our souls at rest in the fullness of God We are held, we are held by grace.

I'm just an old man With an ancient conviction That God is troubled by our pain I have no wisdom Just a fool's expectation That God will come to our aid Through prayer and through pain My hope has not strayed Keep watch with me... My soul aches for dawn My heart stretched and worn Keep watch with me... O my Lord O my friend I'm just a lone voice Frail in the darkness But the night can only last so long I'm just a watchman Eyes to the distance Waiting for heaven's light to show CHORUS He's just a small child From nowhere special But something tells me, this is it My heart's desire My world's salvation A candle in this darkness has been lit CHORUS God can I go to sleep now I've stayed awake to the sunrise With my failing eyes, I see through Love's disguise In my arms I hold the world.

God’s Spirit is on me 1. God’s Spirit is on me God’s breath is within me God’s driving wind behind me So the blind can see again So the bound are free again God’s Spirit is on me now 2. God’s Spirit is on you God’s breath is within you God’s driving wind behind you So good news can find the poor For the Lord is good to all God’s Spirit is on you now 3. God’s Spirit is on us God’s breath is within us God’s driving wind behind us Calling us and gracing us Gifting us and placing us God’s Spirit in on us now.

Into the deep Draw us from the shallows Out into the deep Our faith was weak and hollow But its strengthened in our need Though the waters overwhelm us Though the shore be far from sight From the storm you call forth stillness From the darkness you call light Even the wind and the waves Will listen to your voice Oh speak your love and your grace And calm the storm within Lead us from the certain Into your mystery With fearless love abounding You ride the raging seas Though the waters overwhelm us Though the shore be far away You walk on waves to find us Your hands reach out to save Even the wind and the waves Will listen to your voice Oh speak your love and your grace And calm the storm within Far beyond the headland Where fear and freedom meet The drowning and the dying You haul us to our feet Though the waters overwhelm us Though the shore is far behind Drifting daughter’s you will rescue Shipwrecked son’s you will find Even the wind and the waves Will listen to your voice Oh speak your love and your grace And calm the storm within

O God our Father 1. O God our Father Who can draw faith from us Until we hide in the shadows no longer Strengthen us now Life that will never fade. 2. Jesus our brother Who can draw faith from us Until we hide in the shadows no longer Strengthen us now Life that will never fade. 3. O Holy Spirit Who can draw faith from us Until we hide in the shadows no longer Strengthen us now Life that will never fade.

Oh Lord of the Harvest Oh Lord of the Harvest You call us to our feet Will You prepare Your people As You prepare your fields to reap You call us as your body Many parts becoming one Will you call us together To the work You have begun Giver of Life, make us one And as You send, we find a home These sacred spaces that we share We proclaim that You are here You’ve paved the road before us Though it’s not what we’d expect In the ordinary places We’ll live humbly and be blessed For the Kingdom of God is rising Like the sun behind the hills it’s a light that won’t be hidden and we’ll shine it further still” Father of all, make us one And as You send, we find a home These sacred spaces that we share We proclaim that You are here A Kingdom without borders A loaf of bread to share These homes becomes Your temple And we will find You there Father of all, make us one And as You send, we find a home These sacred spaces that we share We proclaim that You are here

How can we be at home?
How can we be at peace? When each empty place And each empty seat Cries out to us at this homecoming feast. How can we be at home When some of our family are lost?

Like a Child 03:28
Create in me a humble heart Take my hand, guide me back to the start A child’s love, a child’s faith Trusting and learning seeking your face Lord take me to a place… Where I can run to meet you Like a child full of joy, in awe of you Even with all my failings You’re eager for me Lord, mould me Like a child, teach me to depend on you Create in me a thankful heart It’s all in your strength, take my pride apart A child’s dependence, a child’s embrace In you we’re found Lord, saved by your grace Lord take me to a place… Where I can run to meet you Like a child full of joy, in awe of you Even with, all my failings You’re eager for me Lord, mould me Like a child, teach me to depend on you We seek to become children, In our attitude and faith We are God’s blessed sons and daughters, We thank you today…. For we can run to meet you Like a child full of joy, in awe of you Even with, all my failings You’re eager for me Lord, mould me Like a child, teach me to depend on you

For our hearts burn on
 Keeping step with this Holy Stranger 
 We are found between our grief
 And this grace at the table
 Let the flames burn bright
 Let the pilgrim and prodigal gather 
 In warmth and welcome
 To this holy fire Let the beacons of welcome blaze 
 With forgotten saints we raise
 A song of peace, a cry for release 
 For God is here to save
 Our God will make a way Give us courage to walk the Way 
 Share the table with all who stray 
 And finding there a saviour near 
 For God is here to stay
 Our God will make a way When the call draws us from home 
 With a pilgrim’s trust we roam
 No place to rest, but ever blessed 
 The way of Christ is shown
 We will never be alone.
