Suggestions for Adult & All Ages

(Songs in italics are suitable for all ages.)

All I once held dear
A rich young man came to ask of Christ
Don’t let my love grow cold
Drop, drop slow tears
Far above all other joys and wonders
God of mercy, God of grace
Happy are they, they that love God!
Hark, my soul, it is the Lord
Help us accept each other
Here I am once again
Hold me closer to you each day
Immortal, invisible, God only wise
Jesus calls us here to meet him
Lord of the church, we pray for our renewing
O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness
Safe in the shadow of the Lord
Spirit of Jesus, if I love my neighbour
There’s a quiet understanding
When I survey the wondrous cross

Song title (new words to the tune of: I'm a little teapot)

I’m a little child, tall and proud, 
sometimes cheeky, sometimes loud. 
When I’m feeling angry, God feels far, 
stop, and breathe, God’s where you are.



Sometimes I feel afraid of getting things all wrong (CJP 595)
Sometimes I’m naughty (CPR 153)

Reason, Unspoken on Reason
