Track Name: Welcome
Welcome
A song for the sacrament of Baptism

Welcome! There’s a promise that’s keeping us.
Welcome! We are fashioned and found by this love, and invited to trust.

Welcome! Blessed child of the covenant
Welcome! Ever placed in the presence of God, ever held by the Son

Let the water and word nourish and life and belief in you,
Making outward and visible Grace that’s at work in you

Welcome! To this movement in fellowship,
Welcome! There are many now sharing the road, as the journey unfolds
Welcome! Sifted into three measures worth
Welcome! Now commissioned to leaven the world, ‘til the kin-dom has come!

When you wander or fail, you’ll be lifted again by love
There’s no slander or sin that can claim you, a child of God.

Welcome! Turn and listen to Heaven’s song,
Welcome! You’re forgiven of every wrong
Welcome! As one formed and born from above
Welcome! Called to love as you have been loved
Welcome!
Track Name: All In
This is the day I'll be joining the Way
Out of the fray You’ve been callin’, callin’
This is the day I’ll be joining the way
What can I say But I’m all in, all in.

Like a tyrant off a throne,
Like a soldier coming home,
Like an elder dropping stones
I’m turning, turning

Like a 'prentice in the shop
Like a baby standing up,
As I take and pass the cup,
I’m learning, learning

Been lost but gettin’ found,
Need you to guide me
My feet on solid ground,
Finally! Finally!

For the patience of the wise,
For a truth in all the lies,
For a love that never dies,
I’m seeking, seeking

For equality increased,
And a welcome to the feast,
For a waging of the peace,
I’m speaking, speaking

A city high and grand,
Ain't never hiding,
My light’s up on the stand,
Shining! Shining!
Track Name: Never Far
As promises and rings lead to sweet embrace,
The joy in what you’ve just begun
Is held by all who’ve gathered in this sacred space,
Delight and wonder at lives made one.

You will ever be part of all of us, you will never be far from love.

You’ll journey to the heights of ascendant dreams,
You’ll wander through the depths of fear.
You’ll travel in a vessel made of grief and glee,
Your sail and shelter, across the years.

You will ever be part of all of us, you will never be far from love.
You will ever be part of all of us, you will never be far from love.

You’ll gather many wares, only some will stay,
Survivors of the moth and rust
A storehouse of forgiveness will last many days’
Misunderstanding and broken trust.

And you will ever be part of all of us, you will never be far from love
You will ever be part of all of us, you will never be far from love.

With patience and compassion of thousand hues,
And peace to shape the hearts of all,
A chorus of companions holds you as you choose
Grace everlasting, and common call!
Grace everlasting and common call!
Track Name: Love is the Cord
Cherish the work of justice,
Lovers of every kindness,
Humbly the faithful walk in the light,
Love is the cord that binds us


When Nathan spoke to King David,
He knew how mad da truth ‘a make him

Queen Esther wasn’t quite sure if
Like Mordecai said, she’s made for this

Ole Shiprah and Puah got they orders,
But they took their stand with the mothers

When Elijah went down to Zerapheth,
Was the widow’s trust came to break the fast.

I’m gonna live God’s peace here and everywhere,
Gonna beat these swords into ploughshares.

Be borne on wings like the eagles,
Gonna run and not grow weary
Track Name: The Waiting World
A son awakens to sacred call
A daughter listens to sending words
Every member formed for common good

A pilgrim baptized, disciple born
Fruit of the spirit, Christ’s banner worn
Now and forever called to grace and peace
Now and forever for the least of these

And every prophet will find the words to ignite the truth
And every healer will find the care to attend the wounds
Every teacher will find a way to have the promise heard
And let the ways of the kingdom come to the waiting world.

A resurrection is coming soon
A true projection of life anew.
Forgiveness is healing homes, as lost are found
Compassion is being sown in fertile ground

For strength and courage, for joy and will
For dreams and visions, for life fulfilled,

Here at the living well, the faithful pray
Finding a vessel filled, for coming days
Track Name: Today and Every Day
May the love of God surround you, and keep you on your way,
May the peace of Christ be with you, come what may.
May the Spirit be your guide, and in your heart abide,
Today and every day.

Verse 1
As stories come together lives are blessed and changed,
By gifts extended, lessons learned and shared,
With gratitude we bless you for the next terrain,
Beginning now the path for which you’ve been prepared

Verse 2
Now recognizing many things we’d failed to see
Neglected hurt, and truth we have to face,
We ask and grant forgiveness, by the path of peace,
And send you on, commending you from grace to grace...

Verse 3
Imagining the will and joy of setting off,
The courage and compassion called upon,
We dare to trust the future to almighty love,
And sing across the distance still a sacred song
Track Name: Thankful
Light of children, elder’s wisdom, like the dawn of day
Joyful chapters, tears and laughter, like a welcome rain.

Grace of friendship, chosen kindred, table fellowship
Daily bread and will of heaven, living testament

There’s a beauty in all of the mess,
There’s a way coming clear in the wilderness
There’s a shepherd, restorer of souls,
And I’m thankful,

Many hunger, many suffer, many live in loss
Many stay when hope is fadin’, help to bear the cross,

Through the valley of the shadow, a light is leading home
With the broken, grace is spoken, hurt but not alone,

There is strength for the heaviest load
There is hope for the trav’lers on every road
There’s a shepherd, restorer of souls, and I’m thankful.

When I get everything I ask for, the greater gift is a humble heart.
When I brace for the great disaster, let me trust that the help’s not far,
When I see that you’ve filled my cup, Lord, given shelter and daily bread
Chasten to give and serve as Christ has led

Acclamation, celebration, welcome here this day
Love the source and destination, trusting in the Way

There’s a beauty in all of the mess,
There’s a way coming clear in the wilderness
There’s a place for the faith and the doubt,
There’s a welcome for those who have done without,
There is strength for the heaviest load
There is hope for the trav’lers on every road
There’s a shepherd, restorer of souls,
And I’m thankful!
Track Name: Go With God
So quick the setting of the sun,
Many the good things never done
Many unfinished races run,
Now go, Now go

A hundred sorrows letting be,
A thousand graces given, free
And more of miracles to see,
Now go, now go.

In every moment, in every breath,
Before the first and beyond the last,
Held in the arms of eternal Love,
Now go, with God, now go.

Discovered beauty on the way,
In days of struggle, rest and play,
Each one a gift, though none could stay.
Now go, now go.

In every moment, in every breath,
Before the first and beyond the last,
Held in the arms of eternal Love,
Now go, with God, now go.

So far away and still so near,
So many questions coming clear,
As wonderment replaces fear,
Now go, with God, now go.
