Suggestions for Adult & All Ages

(Songs in italics are suitable for all ages.)

All I once held dear
All that I am, all that I have
At the name of Jesus
Awake, awake: fling off the night
Before the world began
Be still and know that I am God
Blessed be your name in the land that is plentiful
Blest are the pure in heart
Calm in the storm
Circle me, Lord, keep protection near
Colours of day dawn into the mind
Come down, O love divine
From the breaking of the dawn
Go forth and tell! O church of God, awake
Great is the darkness
Here I am, wholly available
How deep the Father’s love for us
I, the Lord of sea and sky
Lord Jesus, think on me
Thou, whose almighty word
