“Come Away from Rush & Hurry”

Hymn by Marva Dawn, updated music by Kara Young

Verse 1
Come away from rush and hurry
To the stillness of God’s peace
From our vain ambition’s worry
Come to Christ and find release
Come away from noise and clamor
Life’s demands and frenzied pace
Come to join the people gathered
Here to seek and find God’s grace

Verse 2
In the pastures of God’s goodness
We lie down to rest our soul
From the waters of God’s mercy
We drink deeply are made whole
At the table of God’s presence
All the saints are richly fed
With the oil of God’s anointing
Into service we are led

Verse 3
Come then children with your burdens
Life’s confusions fears and pain
Leave them at the cross of Jesus
Take instead his kingdom’s reign
Bring your thirsts for he will quench them
He alone will satisfy
All our longings find attainment
When to self we gladly die


“Oh Our Lord”

By All Sons and Daughters

Verse 1
We behold the breaking dawn
The light that shines over ev’ryone
We look to You, we long for You oh Lord

Verse 2
We behold the rising sun
The earth awakes Your hope has come
We look to You, we long for You oh Lord

Oh our Lord
Oh our Lord
How majestic is Your Name in all the earth

Verse 3
We behold the falling rain
The waters rise, we need your grace
We reach for You, we cling to You oh Lord


Bridge (2x)
Oh Your Name is a light in the darkness
Oh Your Name is the word of truth
Oh Your Name, oh Your Name…



“Everything is Sacred”

by Pat Barrett

Verse 1
Teach me that it all belongs
That ev’rything is sacred
I eat the bread and drink the wine
But help me love my neighbor

Show me how to hold this life
‘Cause I don’t want to waste it
No, I don’t want to waste it

Oh, heaven is upside down
Oh, it can be here and now
Oh, seeing it all around
That ev’rything is sacred

Verse 2
The ordinary shines and glows
Filled with Your intentions
And You don’t see the lines we draw
Between secular and sacred



Life is a gift and the Giver is good…
