Psalm 99  

The eternal Lord doth reign as king

Let all the people quake

He sits between the cherubims

Let th’earth be mov’d and shake


The Lord in Sion great and high

Above all people is

Thy great and dreadful name for it

Is holy let them bless


The king’s strength also judgement

Thou settest equity

Just judgement thou dost execute

In Jacob righteously


The Lord our God exalt on high

And rev’rently do ye

Before his footstool worship him

The Holy One is he


Do ye exalt the Lord our God

And at his holy hill

Do ye him worship for the Lord

Our God is holy still.

The Communion

Communion Hymn:   We Gather at your Table, Lord

We gather at your table, Lord: 

We humbly lift our hearts to you! 

Here all are welcomed, all restored, 

And all are given work to do.  


We share this meal and we are fed. 

Such basic gifts become your sign: 

We see you broken in the bread;

We know your love in common wine.


God, pour your Spirit on us all,

And on these gifts that we receive;

For in Christ’s presence we recall

His life and death and so believe.


From north and south, from west and east,

Now reconciled, we gather near;

We taste your kingdom’s banquet feast,

So finding strength to serve you here.

Please contact Victoria with any questions.
