Song: Build your Kingdom Here


Offering Ourselves, during which we hear the choir anthem:
Listen Sweet Dove, by Grayston Ives

               Listen sweet Dove unto my song,
               And spread thy golden wings in me;

               Hatching my tender heart so long,
               Till it get wing, and flie away with thee.

               Such glorious gifts thou didst bestow,
               That th’ earth did like a heav’n appeare;
               The starres were coming down to know
               If they might mend their wages, and serve here.

               The sunne, which once did shine alone,
               Hung down his head, and wisht for night,
               When he beheld twelve sunnes for one
               Going about the world, and giving light.

               Lord, though we change, thou art the same;
               The same sweet God of love and light:
               Restore this day, for thy great name,
               Unto his ancient and miraculous right.
