Lord, for the years your love has kept and guided,
urged and inspired us, cheered us in our way,
sought us and saved us, pardoned and provided:
Lord of the years, we bring our thanks today.

Lord, for that word, the word of life which fires us,
speaks to our hearts and sets our souls ablaze,
teaches and trains, rebukes us and inspires us:
Lord of the word, receive your people’s praise.

Lord, for our land in this our generation,
spirits oppressed by pleasure, wealth and care:
for young and old, for commonwealth and nation,
Lord of our land, be pleased to hear our prayer.

Lord, for our world where men disown and doubt you,
loveless in strength, and comfortless in pain,
hungry and helpless, lost indeed without you;
Lord of the world, we pray that Christ may reign.

Lord, for ourselves, in living power remake us
self on the cross and Christ upon the throne,
past put behind us, for the future take us;
Lord of our lives, to live for Christ alone.





What can you remember from 2022?



Give thanks to the Lord our God and King
his love endures forever.
For He is good,
he is above all things:
his love endures forever.
Sing praise, sing praise,
sing praise, sing praise.

With a mighty hand
and an outstretched arm:
his love endures forever.
For the life
that’s been reborn:
his love endures forever.
Sing praise, sing praise,
sing praise, sing praise.

Forever God is faithful;
forever God is strong.
Forever God is with us, forever.

From the rising
to the setting sun:
his love endures forever.
By the grace of God,
we will carry on:
his love endures forever.
Sing praise, sing praise,
sing praise, sing praise.

Grace unmeasured vast and free
that knew me from eternity;
that called me out before my birth
to bring you glory on this earth.

Grace amazing, pure and deep
that saw me in my misery;
that took my curse and owned my blame
so I could bear your righteous name.

Grace (grace, grace)
paid for my sins and brought me to life.
Grace (grace, grace)
clothes me with power to do what is right.
Grace (grace, grace)
will lead me to heaven where I’ll see your face,
and never cease to thank You for your grace.

Grace abounding, strong and true
that makes me long to be like you;
that turns me from my selfish pride
to love the cross on which you died.

Grace unending all my days,
you’ll give me strength to run this race.
And when my years on earth are through,
the praise will all belong to you.



1 Samuel 7:12 :
Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.”



Making ‘Stones of help’





Come, thou fount of every blessing,
tune my heart to sing thy grace.
Streams of mercy never ceasing
call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount, I’m fixed upon it,
mount of thy redeeming love.

Here I raise my Ebenezer.
Here by thy great help I’ve come,
and I hope, by thy good pleasure,
safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
wandering from the fold of God.
He, to rescue me from danger,
interposed His precious blood.

Oh to grace how great a debtor
daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,
bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord I feel it,
prone to leave the God I love.
Here’s my heart, oh take and seal it,
seal it for thy courts above.

How His kindness yet pursues me,
mortal tongue can never tell.
Clothed in flesh, till death shall loose me,
I cannot proclaim it well.
Oh that day when freed from sinning,
I shall see Thy lovely face;
when I’m clothed in blood-washed linen
how I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace!

If you’d like to think a bit more about what you’ve heard, why not come to Emmanuel some other time?

We meet every Sunday at 10.30am in Bramcote College. We’d love to see you there!
