  1. I know that my Redeemer lives!
    What joy the blest assurance gives!
    He lives, he lives, who once was dead;
    He lives, my everlasting Head.
  1. He lives, to bless me with his love;
    He lives, to plead for me above;
    He lives, my hungry soul to feed;
    He lives, to help in time of need.
  1. He lives, and grants me daily breath;
    He lives, and I shall conquer death;
    He lives, my mansion to prepare;
    He lives, to lead me safely there.
  1. He lives, all glory to his name;
    He lives, my Saviour, still the same;
    What joy the blest assurance gives!
    I know that my Redeemer lives!

Samuel Medley, 1738–1799

Sunday 22 March - Lent 4, Mothering Sunday - Recorded Service - Mr Mike Bowstead

Introduction: Revd Catherine Bowstead

Bible readings:   OT: 1 Samuel 1:21-28;   Gospel: John 19:25-27

This is the hymn referred to in the sermon: All my hope on God is founded

  1. All my hope on God is founded;
    he doth still my trust renew.
    Me through change and chance he guideth,
    only good and only true.
    God unknown,
    he alone
    calls my heart to be his own.
  1. Human pride and earthly glory,
    sword and crown betray our trust;
    what with care and toil we fashion,
    tower and temple, fall to dust.
    But God’s power,
    hour by hour,
    is my temple and my tower.
  1. God’s great goodness aye endureth,
    deep his wisdom, passing thought:
    splendour, light, and life attend him,
    beauty springeth out of naught.
    Evermore
    from his store
    new-born worlds rise and adore.
  1. Daily doth the almighty giver
    bounteous gifts on us bestow;
    his desire our soul delighteth,
    pleasure leads us where we go.
    Love doth stand
    at his hand;
    joy doth wait on his command.
  1. Still from man to God eternal
    sacrifice of praise be done,
    high above all praises praising
    for the gift of Christ his Son.
    Christ doth call
    one and all:
    ye who follow shall not fall.

Robert Bridges (1844-1930), alt.     based on Joachim Neander (1650-1680)

Sunday 15 March - Lent 3 - All Age Worship - Mrs Christine Morgan
