King of Kings, majesty
God of heaven living in me.
Gentle Saviour, closest friend,
strong deliverer, beginning and end.
All within me falls at your throne.

Your majesty, I can but bow.
I lay my all before you now.
In royal robes I don’t deserve,
I live to serve your majesty.

Earth and heaven worship you.
Love eternal, faithful and true,
who bought the nations, ransomed souls,
brought this sinner near to your throne.
All within me cries out in praise!




Bless the Lord, O my soul O my soul,
Worship his holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul.
I’ll worship your holy name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning,
It’s time to sing your song again.
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes.

You’re rich in love and you’re slow to anger,
Your name is great and your heart is kind.
For all your goodness I will keep on singing,
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore.



To the parents
Do you acknowledge that Lilla is a gift of God’s love and grace to you, and do you wish to give thanks to God and ask for his blessing?
Alex & Becci: We do.

All: God our creator, we thank you for the precious gift of family life,
and for giving to Alex and Becci, the gift of Lilla.
As we pray for her we thank you that we’re known to you by name
and loved by you from all eternity.
We thank you for Jesus Christ, who died and rose again
to bring us eternal life. Amen.

As Jesus took children in his arms and blessed them, so we now ask God’s blessing on Lilla.

Heavenly Father, we praise you for the gift of this child; surround her with your blessing, that she may know your love, be protected from evil, and know your goodness all of her days. May she learn to love all that is true, grow in wisdom and strength, and above all, in due time, come to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ. In his name we pray. Amen.

It says in Deuteronomy: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

To the parents:
Do you trust in God’s promises in his Word, made to you and all who believe?
Alex & Becci: We do.

Will you live out the gospel in your home by bringing up Lilla in the training and instruction of the Lord, disciplining her and showing her grace, praying for her and teaching her to pray, and modeling for her a life lived for others in service of God and the gospel?
Alex & Becci: With the help of God, we will.

To the godparents:
Will you partner with Alex and Becci in their role as parents, encouraging them, holding them accountable, confronting their sin and praying for them? And will you commit to pray for Lilla, that she will grow to love Jesus and trust in him?
Godparents: With the help of God, we will.

To the supporting friends, family and congregation:
Will you do all that you can to help and support this family?
All: With the help of God, we will.


May God the Father give to Alex and Becci the grace to love and care for Lilla. May God give them wisdom, patience and faith, help them to provide for her needs and, by their example, reveal the love and truth that are in Jesus Christ.

The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord look kindly on you and give you peace. And the blessing of God Almighty,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, be among us and remain with us always. Amen.



What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom
My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to His
Oh how strange and divine, I can sing: all is mine!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side, the Saviour He will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need, His power is displayed

To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley He will lead
Oh the night has been won, and I shall overcome!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven
The future sure, the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And He was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold, my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released, I can sing: I am free!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me
With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For He has said that He will bring me home
And day by day I know He will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!


Our children and young people now go to their groups.






All glory to the King of ages,
All glory to the King of kings.
His name is love, His name is Jesus,
Enthroned above in majesty.

Into this world You came to save us,
You bore the cross, You took my sin
You shone Your light into my darkness
Unveiled the truth, this mystery.

You are my God, You are my Saviour
You are the Rock on which I stand.

Ever faithful God, I cling to You,
In every way You’ve shown that You are good.
There’s no other love compares with You,
Forever strong, forever true,
Ever faithful God, I cling to You.

You are the end of all my searching,
You pour Your grace on all my need.
Unfailing love, unending mercy
Are found in You, the Prince of Peace.

You are my God, You are my Saviour
Eternal One, the Great I Am.


Acts 12:20-24

20 Now Herod was angry with the people of Tyre and Sidon, and they came to him with one accord, and having persuaded Blastus, the king’s chamberlain, they asked for peace, because their country depended on the king’s country for food. 21 On an appointed day Herod put on his royal robes, took his seat upon the throne, and delivered an oration to them. 22 And the people were shouting, “The voice of a god, and not of a man!” 23 Immediately an angel of the Lord struck him down, because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and breathed his last.

24 But the word of God increased and multiplied.

Philippians 2:5-11

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.



Who has held the oceans in his hand?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at his voice;
all creation rises to rejoice:

Behold our God! Seated on his throne,
come let us adore him.
Behold our King! Nothing can compare:
come let us adore Him!

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of his words?
Who can teach the one who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?

Who has felt the nails upon his hands
bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal, humbled to the grave;
Jesus, Saviour, risen now to reign!

MEN: You will reign forever!
WOMEN: Let your glory fill the earth! (repeat)


Praise, my soul, the King of Heaven;
To His feet your tribute bring.
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
Evermore His praises sing:
Praise Him, praise Him!
Praise the everlasting King.

Praise Him for His grace and favour
To our fathers in distress;
Praise Him still the same forever,
Slow to chide, and swift to bless.
Praise Him, praise Him!
Glorious in His faithfulness.

Father like He tends and spares us,
Well our feeble frame He knows;
In His hands He gently bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes.
Praise Him, praise Him!
Widely as His mercy flows.

Angels, help us to adore Him,
You behold Him face to face;
Sun and moon, bow down before Him;
Dwellers all in time and space,
Praise Him, praise Him!
Praise with us the God of grace.
