Suggestions for Adult & All Ages

(Songs in italics are suitable for all ages.)

All heaven waits with bated breath
At the cross, where Jesus suffered
At the foot of the cross (Sheppard)
Filled with compassion for all creation
Heaven shall not wait
He who would valiant be (with variants)
I need you to soften my heart
I will exalt you
I will wait on you Lord.
Jesu, grant me this, I pray
Jesu(s), priceless treasure
Jesus take me as I am
Let this place be an upper room
Longing for light, we wait in darkness
My heart is restless; let peace wash over me
Our scars are a sign of grace in our lives
Seek ye first the kingdom of God
The Lord’s my shepherd (Townend)
We have this treasure from the Lord our God
You will keep the fires burning
