New hymns for worship

Below are two new hymns which are free to use (please include copywrite info if reproducing)

This is a new direction, and I hope that these will prove useful for your worship. They are written to go with familiar hymn tunes, which makes life simpler!


 

Circle us, Lord


Circle us Lord, with the arms of your presence,
Keep peace within and all fear without;
Your light to cheer and illumine the darkness,
Circle us Lord, in the arms of your love.


Circle us Lord, with the arms of your presence,
Keep love within and all evil without;
Your voice bring calm in all places of violence,
Circle us Lord, in the arms of your love.


Circle us Lord, with the arms of your presence,
Keep joy within and all worries without;
Your word inspire us and make us courageous,
Circle us Lord, in the arms of your love.


Circle us Lord, with the arms of your presence,
Keep hope within and all suffering without;
Your touch to heal us and bring us to wholeness,
Circle us Lord, in the arms of your love.

11.10.11.10 suggested tune ‘Epiphany Hymn’

There are two new tunes for this hymn, by Colin and Elisabeth Traverse, both well worth downloading!

Tune 1

Tune 2


You are the God

You are the God who made this world,
You are the truth that all may find,
You are the touch which heals our wounds,
The source of life for humankind.


You are the hope that we proclaim,
You are the path we choose to tread,
And if we hunger on the way,
You are the food by which we’re fed.


You are the love that knows no end,
You are the perfect sacrifice,
For broken lives weighed down by sin,
You are the One who paid the price.


You are the joy that fills our heart,
You are the comfort in our pain,
And as we lay all else aside.
For all we lose you are our gain.
