The Glory of the Church of Christ, Scientist

Welcome All!
Tonight’s gratitude service is going to be really important. It is going to actively ask every participant to really pray for the collective body of the Church of Christ, Scientist. It will also be followed by a reading of the cover article in this month’s Christian Science Journal called, “Numbering the People: Healing more than Counting” and a discussion about church membership followed by prayer time. If you have JSH-Online you can view the article here: Healing More Than Counting by Nate Talbot. If you’d like to join us and you’re not in Jamaica Plain, just sit tight and we’ll hook you up.

Find us at The Eastern Bank at 687 Centre St., Jamaica Plain, MA 02130 every Wednesday at 7:30 PM.

Here are the readings and hymns for tonight. They include links to youtube videos with the lyrics, as well as lyrics for all of the hymns below the schedule for tonight’s meeting. This is so you can experience the spirit of this service even if you can’t make it tonight. Ah, praise God for this great technology!

Hymn #1 – People of God 

We could have tongues of angels

we could move mountains with our faith

we could give everything away

but if we don’t have love

we’re left with nothing

We could see blind eyes opened

know all the mysteries of our faith

we could sing all the highest praise

but if we don’t have love

we’re left with nothing

(Chorus)

People of God rise up

rise up and shine God’s love

we are the light of the world

of the world oh

we are the light of the world

of the world oh

Love is the what holds it all together

love never fails, it never dies

there is no deeper truth

we know that God is love, our God is love

(Chorus)

People of God rise up

rise up and shine God’s love

we are the light of the world

of the world oh

we are the light of the world

of the world oh

(Bridge)

tear down the walls that divide us

let love rebuild and unite us

all we need is

all we need is love

(Chorus)

People of God rise up

rise up and shine God’s love

we are the light of the world

of the world oh

we are the light of the world

of the world oh

Hymn #2 – Speak Life 

Somedays life feels perfect

Other days it just ain’t workin

The good, the bad, the right, the wrong

And everything in between

Though it’s crazy, amazing

We can turn our hearts with the words we say

Mountains crumble with every syllable

Hope can live or die.

(Chorus)

So speak Life, speak Life

Through the deadest darkest night

Speak Life, Speak Life

When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why

Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted

Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope

You speak Love, you speak…

(Refrain)

You speak Life,

(oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

You speak Life

Someday the tongue gets twisted

Other days my thoughts just fall apart

I do, I don’t, I will, I won’t

It’s like I’m drowning in the deep

Well it crazy to imagine

Words from our lips as the arms of compassion

Mountains crumble with every syllable

Hope can live or die

(Chorus)

So speak Life, speak Life

Through the deadest darkest night

Speak Life, Speak Life

When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why

Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted

Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope

You speak Love, you speak…

(Refrain)

You speak Life, (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

You speak Life

(Bridge)

Lift your head a little higher

Spread the love like fire

Hope will fall like rain

When you speak life with the words you say

Raise your thoughts a little higher

Use your words to inspire

Trouble falls like rain

When you speak life with the things you say

Lift your head a little higher

Spread the love like fire

Hope will fall like rain

When you speak life with the words you say

(Chorus)

So speak Life, speak Life

Through the deadest darkest night

Speak Life, Speak Life

When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why

Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted

Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope

You speak love, you speak…

(Refrain)

You speak Life, (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

You speak Life

You speak Life, You speak Life

Somedays life feels perfect

Hymn #3 – Our God is Greater 

Water you turned into wine, opened the eyes of the blind there’s no one like you none like You!

Into the darkness you shine out of the ashes we rise there’s no one like you none like You!

(Chorus)

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other.

Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!

Into the darkness you shine out of the ashes we rise there’s no one like you none like You!

(Chorus)

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other.

Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other.

Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!

 (Epic Bridge)

And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us.

And if our God is with us, then what could stand against.

And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us.

And if our God is with us, then what could stand against.

What could stand against.

 (Chorus)

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other.

Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other.

And if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us.

And if our God is with us, then what could stand against.

Then what could stand against.

 (Chorus)

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other.

Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other.

Our God is Healer, Awesome in Power, Our God! Our God!
