Offertory Anthem Sing my soul Sarah MacDonald (b. 1968)
Sing my soul, his wondrous love,
who from bright yonder throne above
ever watchful o’er his race,
still extends to us his grace
Heaven and earth by him were made,
all is by his scepter swayed,
what are we that he should show
so much love to us below,
so much love to us below?
God, the merciful and good,
bought us with the Savior’s blood,
and to make salvation sure
guides us by his Spirit pure,
guides us by his Spirit pure.
Sing my soul, adore his name!
Let his glory be thy theme:
praise him till he calls thee to his love
for all to come, trust love for all to come.
