Welcome and Intimations
Call to Worship
For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies
For the love
Which from our birth
Over and around us lies
Refrain Christ our Lord to thee we raise
This our sacrifice of praise
For the beauty of the hour
Of the day and of the night
Hill and vale
And tree and flower
Sun and moon and stars of light
For the joy of ear and eye
For the heart and mind delight
For the mystic harmony
Linking sense to sound and light
For the joy of human love
Brother, sister, parent, child
Friends on earth
And friends above
For all gentle thoughts and mild
For each perfect gift and sign
of your love so freely given
Graces human and divine
Flowers of earth and buds of heaven
Prayer of Approach & Confession
O WORSHIP the King, All glorious above;
O gratefully sing His power and his love:
Our shield and defender, the Ancient of days,
Pavilioned in splendour, and girded with praise.
O tell of his might, O sing of his grace,
Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space;
Whose chariots of wrath the deep thunder-clouds form;
And dark is his path on the wings of the storm.
The earth with its store Of wonders untold,
Almighty! thy power hath founded of old;
Hath stablished it fast by a changeless decree,
And round it hath cast, like a mantle, the sea.
Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light,
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
And sweetly distils In the dew and the rain.
Frail children of dust, Aand feeble as frail,
In thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail;
Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,
Our Maker, defender, redeemer, and friend!
O measureless Might! Ineffable Love!
While angels delight to hymn thee above,
The humbler creation, though feeble their lays,
With true adoration shall sing to thy praise.
Psalm 23 Anne McHolm
Luke 22:39-46 Revd Gauld
May the mind of Christ, my Saviour,
Live in me from day to day,
By His love and power controlling
All I do and say.
May the Word of God dwell richly
In my heart from hour to hour,
So that all may see I triumph
Only through His power.
May the peace of God my Father
In my heart forever reign
That I may be calm to comfort
Those in grief, or pain
May the love of Jesus fill me,
As the waters fill the sea;
Him exalting, self denying,
This is victory.
May I run the race before me,
Strong and brave to face the foe,
Looking only unto Jesus
As I onward go.
My song is love unknown,
My Saviour’s love to me;
Love to the loveless shown
That they might lovely be.
O who am I, That for my sake
My Lord should take frail flesh, and die?
He came from His blest throne
Salvation to bestow;
But people scorned, and none
The longed-for Christ would know:
But oh, my Friend, my Friend indeed,
Who at my need His life did spend.
Sometimes they strew His way,
And His sweet praises sing;
Resounding all the day hosannas to their King:
Then “Crucify!” is all their breath,
And for His death They thirst and cry.
They rise and needs will have
My dear Lord made away;
A murderer they save, the Prince of life they slay.
Yet cheerful He to suffering goes,
That He His foes from thence might free.
In life, no house, no home
My Lord on earth might have;
In death, no friendly tomb but what a stranger gave.
What may I say? Heav’n was His home;
But mine the tomb wherein He lay.
Here might I stay and sing,
No story so divine;
Never was love, dear King,
Never was grief like Thine.
This is my Friend, In whose sweet praise
I all my days could gladly spend.
Offering and Prayer of dedication
Prayers for others
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
Oh 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
Make me a channel of your peace
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
And giving of ourselves that we receive
And in dying that we’re born eternal life
A warm welcome is extended to all worshiping with us today.
Tea and coffee will be served in Hamilton Hall after the service and you are invited to join us for a short time of fellowship together.
Our service today is being conducted by Revd Bev Gauld and we extend a very warm Dalserf welcome to him.
The Kirk Session have agreed to the installation of a recording system in Dalserf Church. This is to enable those people who are unable to attend the Church to view the service on the Website. We are looking for four people to undergo training on the system. Training will be given by George Price. If you are interested please contact the Session Clerk Joan Pollok or the Deputy Session Clerk Kay Blair.
