Offertory Anthem: “Jesus Lover Of My Soul” – Philip Stopford
Jesus, lover of my soul, let me to thy bosom fly
While the nearer waters roll, while the tempest still is high:
Hide me, O my Savior hide, till the storm of life be past;
Safe into the haven guide, O receive my soul at last
Other refuge have I non; hangs my helpless soul on thee;
Leave, an, leave me not alone, still support and comfort me.
All my trust on thee is stayed, all my help from thee I bring;
Cover my defenseless head with the shadow of thy wing.
Thou, O Christ, art all I want; more than all in thee I find.
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, heal the sick, and lead the blind.
Just and holy is thy name; I am all unrighteousness.
False and full of sin I am; thou art full of truth and grace.
Plenteous grace in thee is found, grace to cover all my sin;
Let the healing streams abound; make and keep me pure within.
Thou of life the fountain art; freely let me take of thee,
Spring thou up within my heart; rise to all eternity. Amen
