#128 "For All That Is Our Life"

Words: Bruce Findlow

Music: Patrick L. Rickey


For all that is our life we sing our thanks and praise;

for all life is a gift which we are called to use

to build the common good and make our own days glad.


For needs which others serve, for services we give,

for work and its rewards, for hours of rest and love;

we come with praise and thanks for all that is our life.


For sorrow we must bear, for failures, pain, and loss,

for each new thing we learn, for fearful hours that pass:

we come with praise and thanks for all that is our life.


For all that is our life we sing our thanks and praise;

for all life is a gift which we are called to use

to build the common good and make our own days glad.

Closing Hymn

#118 "This Little Light of Mine"

Words and Music: African American spiritual


This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.


Ev'rywhere I go, I'm gonna let it shine ...


Building up a world, I'm gonna let it shine ...

Closing Circle

May faith in the spirit of life

And hope for the community of Earth

And love of the light in each other

Be ours now, and in all the days to come.
