Suggestions from Adult & All Ages

(Songs in italics are suitable for all ages.)

All people that on earth do dwell
Beauty for brokenness, hope for despair
Can’t stop talking ‘bout ev’rything he’s done
Christ is the one who calls
Come and join the circle
El-Shaddai, El-Shaddai
Even though I walk through the valley of despair
God, fill our cup to overflowing
God forgave my sin in Jesus’ name
Great God, your love has called us here
How long, O Lord, will you forget an answer to
my prayer?
I come with joy, a child of God
I love to praise your name
Lord, send us to the lost
O for a thousand tongues to sing
The kingdom of God is justice and joy
There’s a new day dawning now
Through you I can do anything
Through you, the blind will see
When afraid, when in doubt
