Hymns at Home

CH4 622
Played by Catriona Lachlan, at the West Kirk of Calder

We sing a love that sets all people free,
that blows like wind, that burns like scorching flame,
enfolds the earth, springs up like water clear:
come, living love, live in our hearts today.

We sing a love that seeks another’s good,
that longs to serve and not to count the cost,
a love that, yielding, finds itself made new:
come, caring love, live in our hearts today.

We sing a love, unflinching, unafraid
to be itself, despite another’s wrath,
a love that stands alone and undismayed:
come, strengthening love, live in our hearts today.

We sing a love that, wandering, will not rest
until it finds its way, its home, its source,
through joy and sadness pressing on refreshed:
come, pilgrim love, live in our hearts today.

We sing the Holy Spirit, full of love,
who seeks out scars of ancient bitterness,
brings to our wounds the healing grace of Christ:
come, radiant love, live in our hearts today.

Hymns at Home

CH4 457
Played by Catriona Lachlan at Polbeth Harwood Church

 

1. All hail the power of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall,
bring forth the royal diadem
And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,

Crown Him Lord of all!
 
2. Crown him you martyrs of our God,
who witnessed to his call;
exalt the one whose path you trod,
And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,

Crown Him Lord of all!
 
3. Let every tongue and every tribe,
responsive to the call,
to him all majesty ascribe
And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,

Crown Him Lord of all!
 
4. O that with yonder sacred throng,
we at his feet may fall,
join in the everlasting song
And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him,

Crown Him Lord of all!

One of our lovely young people, Hamish, became aware of a need. He decided to do something about it, and now his act of kindness is inspiring many others to do the same...

Hymns at Home

CH4 609
Played by Catriona Lachlan at Polbeth Harwood Church

 
1 Come, living God, when least expected,
when minds are dull and hearts are cold,
through sharpening word and warm affection
revealing truths as yet untold.
 
2 Break from the tomb in which we hide you
to speak again in startling ways;
break through the words in which we bind you
to resurrect our lifeless praise.
 
3 Come now, as once you came to Moses
within the bush alive with flame,
or to Elijah on the mountain,
by silence pressing home your claim.
 
4 So, let our minds be sharp to read you
in sight or sound or printed page,
and let us greet you in our neighbours,
in ardent youth or mellow age.
 
5 Then, through our gloom, your Son will meet us
as vivid truth and living Lord,
exploding doubt and disillusion
to scatter hope and joy abroad.
 
6 Then we will share his radiant brightness
and, blazing through the dread of night,
illuminate by love and reason,
for those in darkness, faith's delight.

A Message from our Minister: January 2021

  • 30 January 2021
  • lorna.graham

Due to the current lockdown restrictions, we are not able to have worship in our churches at the moment. But please remember: While our buildings might be closed – THE CHURCH IS STILL OPEN! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any kind of support, or even just want a wee blether!

Every Sunday on our Church Website and Facebook pages, you can join in Sunday Worship form the comfort of your own home. There are 3 clips available: Church from your Couch, Hymns at Home, and Kids’ Kirk. These are available from 10am, but can be watched at any time after that. We also have a phone service, which means that if you don’t have internet access, you can dial 01506 286 884 to listen to the worship service. A transcript of the sermon is also available on the website.

Every now and again there will be an invitation to meet via Zoom over a cuppa after church. The log-in details will be posted with the service.

On Wednesdays at 4pm there is a Midweek Message on the Website and Facebook pages.

As soon as we are allowed to open our church doors again, we will do so – please keep an eye on the Webpage/Facebook for details about this and any other events.

During these strange times, please remember the words of Jesus at the very end of the Gospel according to Matthew: “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

May God be very close to you all.

Nanda
