A new commandment

This hymn is not found in the Common Praise Hymnal.

A new commandment
I give unto you
That you love one another
  As I have loved you,
That you love one another
  As I have loved you.
    By this shall all men
    Know you are My disciples
    If you have love one to another.

Amazing Grace

Common Praise No. 375

Amazing grace (how sweet the sound)
     that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
     was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
     and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
     the hour I first believed!

Through many dangers, toils and snares
     I have already come:
’tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
     and grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
     his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be
     as long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
     and mortal life shall cease:
I shall possess, within the veil,
     a life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
     the sun forbear to shine;
but God, who called me here below,
     will be forever mine.

Be still, for the presence of the Lord

Common Praise No. 384

1.
Be still, for the presence of the Lord,
        the Holy One, is here.
    Come, bow before him now,
            with reverence and fear.
    In him no sin is found,
            we stand on holy ground.
Be still, for the presence of the Lord,
        the Holy One, is here.

2.
Be still, for the glory of the Lord
        is shining all around;
    he burns with holy fire,
            with splendour he is crowned.
How awesome is the sight,
            our radiant King of light!
Be still, for the glory of the Lord
        is shining all around.

3.
Be still, for the power of the Lord
            is moving in this place,
    he comes to cleanse and heal,
            to minister His grace.
    No work too hard for him,
            in faith receive from him;
be still, for the power of the Lord
        is moving in this place.

Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love;
where there is injury, your pardon, Lord;
and where there's doubt, true faith in you.
O Master, grant that I may never seek
so much to be consoled as to console
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved, as to love with all my soul.


Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there's despair in life, let me bring hope;
where there is darkness, only light;
and where there's sadness, ever joy.
O Master, grant that I may never seek
so much to be consoled as to console
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved, as to love with all my soul.


Make me a channel of your peace.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
in giving to all men that we receive,
and in dying that we're born to eternal life.
