Processional Hymn “All Things Bright and Beautiful”       HYMNAL #405      

 

Refrain

All things bright and beautiful,

all creatures great and small,

all things wise and wonderful,

the Lord God made them all.

 

1

Each little flower that opens,

each little bird that sings,

he made their glowing colors,

he made their tiny wings.

Refrain

2

The purple headed mountain,

the river running by,

the sunset, and the morning

that brightens up the sky.

Refrain

The cold wind in the winter,

the pleasant summer sun,

the ripe fruits in the garden,

he made them every one.

Refrain

He gave us eyes to see them,

and lips that we might tell,

how great is God Almighty,

who has made all things well

Almighty and everlasting God, in Christ you have revealed your glory among the nations: Preserve the works of your mercy, that your Church throughout the world may persevere with steadfast faith in the confession of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Loving God, we pray for the Search Committee of this parish, asking you to grant them open hearts and minds, a discerning spirit, and confidence in your strength and guidance. Fill them with a vision of your reign, and our participation in its fulfillment. Remove from them any blinders or prejudice that may keep them from seeing your face in all those they encounter in their discernment, and give us grateful hearts for the good work and ministry they do. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
