Track Name: Alleluia, Praise to the Savior/Aleluya, resucitó
(Chorus): Alleluia, praise to the savior;
Jesus Christ the Lord.
Aleluya, resucitó nuestro salvador.

Christ was revealed to those
who feared when he offered peace.
His holy love endures forever.
Sin holds us no more; we are freed
by the risen Lord.

Benditos son los que creen sin ver,
que aman como el Señor.
Recibirán el espíritu santo para
alzar al pueblo y ofrecer consuelo.

Our love will not end in words or
gestures;
Live in the justice of God
proclaiming, “Alleluia!”

Ven y alégrate con los milagros
de Dios.
Por su amor, Cristo nos toca
ser sembradores de la paz;
cualquier con su cada capacidad.

Chorus

(Chorus) Let us go through the door
that is the Lord Jesus Christ.
Let us turn to God the shepherd;
let us be shepherds in our lives.
May we find hope in the risen Lord;
may we be hope for those who despair.
The love of God calls us to be
the light of hope and life.

Chorus

May we find strength in the fullness of God;
may we be strength for the weary and tired.
The love of God calls us to be
the light of hope and life.

May we find comfort in God’s endless embrace;
may we be comfort for those aching with grief.
The love of God calls us to be
the light of hope and life.

may we be healers for our wounded world.
The love of God calls us to be
the light of hope and life.

may we be present to those in need.
The love of God calls us to be
the light of hope and life.

Track Name: Psalm 30: I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.
(Chorus) I will praise you. I will praise you,
Lord, for you have rescued me.

I will extol you, Lord, for you have
raised me up, and have not let my
enemies rejoice over me.
O Lord, you have lifted up my soul
from the grave,
restored me to life from those
who sink into the pit.

Chorus

Sing psalms to the Lord, you faithful ones;
give thanks to his holy name.
His anger lasts a moment, his favor
all through life.
At night come tears, but dawn brings joy.

Chorus

Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me;
be my helper, O Lord. You have changed
my mourning into dancing.
O Lord my God, I will thank you forever.

Chorus
Track Name: On This Day of the New Creation
(Chorus): On this day of the new creation,
we have been nourished and blessed by God.
Now we are called to be hope for God’s people.
Humbly we’ll live to serve and to love.

Yet on this day where people are suffering
from poverty, sickness, and war,
may our hearts turn to You, O God of Hosts,
who heals the broken with love.

Chorus

Yet on this day where the meek are forgotten,
where the greedy punish the poor;
may we gather the strength to raise a voice
announcing the justice of God.

Chorus

Yet where there is violence and oppression,
where hearts are imprisoned by hate,
let us return to God’s embrace,
that calls forth the freedom in all.

Chorus

May love be our guide and our center,
let forgiveness and peace shape our minds.
Call us to walk humbly with You,
lead us to life, O God.

(Chorus) Lord, let your mercy be on us
as we place our trust in You.

The word of the Lord is faithful
and all his works to be trusted.
The Lord loves justice and right
and his merciful love fills the earth.

Chorus

Yes, the Lord’s eyes are on those
who fear him, who hope in his merciful
love, to rescue their souls from death,
to keep them alive in famine.

Chorus

Our soul is waiting for the Lord.
He is our help and our shield.
May your merciful love be upon us
as we hope in you, O Lord.

Chorus

days of our lives.

Blessed are all who fear the Lord
and walk in his ways!
By the labor of your hands you shall eat.
You will be blessed and prosper.

Chorus

Your wife like a fruitful vine
in the heart of your house;
your children like shoots of the olive
around your table.

Chorus

May you see your children’s children.
On Israel, peace!

Chorus
Track Name: My Hand is Yours to Hold
I believe I will live through the
gifts that I give.
For they are not mine to hide,
but to share from deep inside.
I’m alive! I’m alive! I’m alive
and when you’re broken and cold,
my hand is yours to hold.

How can I be as strong as to
forgive when I’m done wrong?
And seek forgiveness for my sin,
precious Lord, where can I begin?

Will I stand and serve with justice and grace?
Will I live and meet my fears face to face?
Will I love with a passion so bold?
Will I give my hands to hold?

God, teach me to serve so I may love.
Christ, guide me with truth; may
wisdom fill my heart.

Take me, shape me, teach me reveal me;
help me see who I am!
I am alive.

Friends in Christ, have you seen
that our world is suff’ring?
Will you walk the dark and barren land
bearing God’s light in your hands?

Will you stand and serve with justice and grace?
Will you live and meet my fears face to face?
Will you love with a passion so bold?
Are your hands ours to hold?

We will stand and serve with justice and grace.
We will live and meet my fears face to face.
As we love with a passion so bold,
our hands are yours to hold.
Our hands are yours to hold.
Track Name: Open Your Heart to the Lord
I sat down to pray, but I fear I lost my way;
you see, for me, it’s been a long return.
But why should I cry when God is by my side?

(Chorus) Open your heart to the Lord, God
will show you the way.

I sat down to pray, but I fear I lost my way;
you see, for me, it’s been a long return.
But why should I cry when God is by my side?

(We believe) As Jesus walks,
(we believe) we are saved (2x)
(We believe) As Jesus walks,
he saves us all (We are reborn in God’s love).

Many years ago, the disciples walked this road;
oh how their hearts were burning with new life.
For they were shown the light and saw
Jesus at their side.

(we believe) to live in new life (2x)
(We believe) With his guiding hand
(we believe) he calls us to live in light
(We are reborn in God’s love).

Chorus

This growing voice of mine is longing for a sign;
my beating heart is longing to be transformed.
God’s invitation lives and love is what God gives.

Chorus

(We believe) Through the grace of God
(we believe) we will be reborn.
(We believe) Through the grace of God
(we believe) we will be transformed.
(We believe) through God’s own grace
(we believe) we are reborn
(We are reborn in God’s love).

I sat down to pray and I feel I found my way;
Lord, I know your love opens my heart.
No matter our name, God loves us all the same

I have come before you in the
sanctuary, to behold your strength
and your glory.
Your loving mercy is better than life;

with joyful lips my mouth shall praise you.
