Offertory: “Draw Us In The Spirit’s Tether” – Harold Friedell
Draw us in the spirit’s tether, for when humbly in thy name
Two or three are met together, Thou art in the midst of them.
Alleluia! Touch we now Thy garment’s hem
As the brethren used to gather in the name of Christ to sup,
Then with thanks to God the Father, break the bread and bless the cup.
Alleluia! So knit Thou our friendship up.
All our meals and all our living make as sacraments to Thee,
That by caring, helping, giving, we may true disciples be.
Alleluia! We will serve Thee faithfully
Communion Anthem: “A Simple Song (Mass)'” – Leonard Bernstein
Richard Seymour; Baritone Soloist
Lesli Beard; Flautist
Sing God a simple song, Lauda, Laude
Make it up as you go along, Lauda, Laude.!.
Sing like you like to sing; God loves all simple things.
For God is the simplest of all!
I will sing the Lord a new song,
to praise him, to bless him, to bless the Lord.
I will sing his praises while I live, all of my days.
Blessed is the man who loves the Lord;
Blessed is the man who praises Him, Lauda, Laude,
And walks in his ways.
I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence comes my help,
I will lift up my voice to the Lord, singing Lauda, Laude.
For the Lord is my shade, is the shade upon my right hand.
And the sun shall not smite me by day, nor the moon by night.
Text from the Psalms
