(Songs in italics are suitable for all ages.)

All heaven declares
Be thou my guardian and my guide
Be still, my soul: the Lord is at your side
Broken for me, broken for you
Come, risen Lord, and deign to be our guest
Falling, moving, closer
Fear not, rejoice and be glad
From heaven to here and from here to heaven
God has spoken – by his prophets
Heaven shall not wait
Listening God, you hear us when we cannot speak
Lord Jesus Christ, you have come to us
O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
O thou who this mysterious bread
On the journey to Emmaus
Sometimes a light surprises
Stay with us, O Lord Jesus Christ (Taizé)
There is a longing in our hearts
When our Lord walked the earth
You make my heart feel glad
