Offertory Sometimes A Light Surprises Choir
Words: William Cowper (1731-1800); Music: Richard Shephard (1949-2021)
Sometimes a light surprises the Christian while he sings. It is the Lord who rises, with healing in his wings. When comforts are declining, he grants the soul again a season of clear shining, to cheer it after rain. W In holy contemplation we sweetly then pursue the theme of God's salvation, and find it ever new; set free from present sorrow, we cheerfully can say, let the unknown tomorrow bring with it what it may. W Yet God the same abiding his praise shall tune my voice, for while in him confiding, I cannot but rejoice. Who gives the lilies clothing, will clothe his people, too; and we shall want for nothing, our God will hear us through.
Doxology sung Old 100th
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; praise him, all creatures here below; praise him above, ye heavenly host; praise
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
