Resources

Lord we pray for peace
To heal our fractured world
Send your love to conquer
Where darkness overwhelms
Jesus full of mercy
Hear our anguished plea
Prince of Peace and Lord of love
We pray to you for peace

Have mercy Lord Jesus!
We cry to you today!
Have mercy Lord Jesus!
Have mercy on us Lord, we pray.

Lord we pray for peace
Where lives are torn apart
Hope of every nation
Restore each broken heart
Jesus Rock and Refuge
Comfort those who flee
Master of the raging storm
We pray to you for peace

Have mercy…

Lord we pray for peace
Where fear is all around
May your love enfold us
May faith and hope abound
Jesus lord and victor
Come and set us free
Saviour who has crushed the grave
We pray to you for peace

Song

Jesus, Saviour

There are many names and titles for Jesus in the Bible. This song is a meditation on three of them: saviour, shepherd, king. In each verse we pray that Jesus will be a faithful shepherd, saviour and king to us, and that we would respond in faith and obedience.

Some key biblical references/allusions include Romans 5:6-9, Mark 5:41, Psalm 23, John 10, Romans 1:5, John 8:44.

Resources

Jesus, Saviour, be for me
My strength, my sure defence;
May your blood forever be
My only righteousness.
Helpless, hopeless, bound by sin
Until you set me free;
Took my hand and raised me up
From death to life and peace!

Oh Jesus!
You’re the lover of my soul.
Oh Jesus!
Jesus be my all in all.

Jesus, Shepherd, be for me
My help, my way, my guide;
May your word forever lead
To springs of endless life.
Faint and weary, lost and blind
Without your guiding hand;
You are mighty, good and kind
Secure with You I stand.

Oh Jesus!
You’re the lover of my soul.
Oh Jesus!
Jesus be my all in all.

Jesus, master, be for me
My King, my lord of all!
May my footsteps ever be
Obedient to your call.
Sure to follow Satan’s lies
Without your loving rule.
May your word forever bind
My thankful heart to you!

Oh Jesus!
You’re the lover of my soul.
Oh Jesus!
Jesus be my all in all.

Resources

O the kindness of our Father
Lavish generosity!
Power and goodness bound together
To provide our every need!
Though your voice breaks mighty cedars
Calls from nothing all to be!
Every word now gently leads us
To the pastures rich and green

Thank you father
Your love is all we need
Thank you father!
For loving even me

O the goodness of our Father
Sparing not the Son you loved-
He who brought eternal pleasure-
For the guilty given up!
Is it true he hung forsaken
Bearing righteous wrath for us?
Enemies now made your children
Lavished with your perfect love!

Thank you father…

O the love of God our Father
Burns for us with holy zeal!
Jealous for our full devotion
Till your glory is revealed.
May our hearts beat holy passion
Yearning for our home above
Where at last redeemed, adopted
We’ll forever know your love

Thank you father…

Song

Gentle and Lowly

Gentle and Lowly is inspired by Dane Ortlund’s book of the same title. At the start of that book he says,

“In the four gospel accounts given to us in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – eighty-nine chapters of biblical text- there’s only one place where Jesus tells us about his own heart”. That place is Matthew 11:28-29:

Come to me, all you who labour 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. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Taking its theme from the book, this song is a meditation and celebration of the heart of Christ for sinners and sufferers like us.

Resources

Gentle and lowly, patient and kind
Ever approachable saviour of mine
All of my weakness meets your embrace,
Failure and sin meet compassion and grace
Gentle and lowly! Patient and kind!
Ever approachable saviour of mine!

Seeing my suffering, knowing my fear
Mercy compels you in love to draw near
Joy without measure flows through your soul
Taking my burdens and bearing them all!
Seeing my suffering, knowing my fear
Mercy compels you in love to draw near!

Humble redeemer there on the tree
Nothing could stop you from suffering for me
Speechless in wonder, angels above
Never had seen such self-emptying love!
Humble redeemer there on the tree
Nothing could stop you from suffering for me

Gentle and lowly, patient and kind
No other saviour like Jesus I find
Though my heart changes, yours never does
Ever unchanging compassion and love!
Gentle and lowly, patient and kind
No other saviour like Jesus I find
No other saviour like Jesus I find
