PRAISE CHORUSES

 

WE BRING THE SACRIFICE OF PRAISE

 

We bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord
We bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord
And we offer up to You the sacrifices of thanksgiving And we offer up to You the sacrifices of joy 

 

 

HAVE THINE OWN WAY LORD

 

Have Thine own way, Lord, have Thine own way;
Thou art the Potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after Thy will,
While I am waiting, yielded and still.

 

Have Thine own way, Lord, have Thine own way;
Search me and try me, Master, today.
Whiter than snow, Lord, wash me just now,
As in Thy presence, humbly I bow.

Have Thine own way, Lord, have Thine own way;
Wounded and weary, help me, I pray.
Power, all power, surely is Thine,
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine. 

 

Have Thine own way, Lord, have Thine own way;
Hold o’er my being absolute sway.
Fill with Thy Spirit till all shall see
Christ only, always, living in me. 

 

 

THANK YOU LORD

 

 Thank you Lord 

Thank you Lord 

Thank you Lord 

I just want to thank you Lord 

 Been so good . . . 

Saved my soul . . . 

GOD IS

 

God is my protection.
God is my all and all.
God is my light in darkness.
God is my all and all.

 

God is my joy in time of sorrow.
God is my all and all.
God is my today and tomorrow.
God is my all and all.

 

Chorus:
God is the joy and the strength of my life,
Removes all pain, misery, and strife.
He promised to keep me, never to leave me.
He'll never never come short of His word.

I'm going to fast and pray, stay in this narrow way,
I'll keep my life clean each and everyday
I want to go with Him when He comes back,
I've come too far and I'll never turn back.

 

God is (3x),
God is my all and all.

YOUR GRACE AND MERCY

 

Your grace and mercy brought me through

I'm living this moment because of You
I want to thank You and praise You too
Your grace and mercy brought me through

 

Thank You for saving a sinner like me
To tell the world salvation is free
There were times when I just didn't do right
But You watched over me all day and night


Your grace and mercy brought me through
I'm living this moment because of You
I want to thank You and praise You too

Your grace and mercy brought me through


Justice demanded that I should die
But grace and mercy said
Oh no, oh no, oh no
We've already paid the price
I once was blind
But thank God I can see
It was because grace and mercy
Came along and rescued me


Your grace and mercy brought me through
I'm living this moment because of You
I want to thank You and praise You too
Your grace and mercy, your grace and mercy
Your grace and mercy brought me through

THE STORM IS PASSING OVER

 

The storm is passing over - Hallelu!

The storm is passing over -  Hallelu!

Troubles in life that we all face

Feeling as though there is no way

I know the Lord has promised us a brighter day

The storm is passing over - Hallelu!

 

You can weather the storm

if you put your trust in God

 

VAMP
The storm is passing over!

The storm is passing over!

After months, Greater Framingham Community Church has resumed in-person worship services.  Please note the following:

 

  1. Our order of service will remain as it has been for the past 15 months.
  2. Online worship will continue as it has been during COVID.
  3. Seating for everyone will be on the main floor at your own discretion.
  4. We will have seating for those who want to sit by families or sit in their own socially distance bubble.  We will also have seating for those who wish to sit socially distant from others, and open seating. 
  5. As you arrive, ushers will assist you in your seating preference.
  6. We ask that you wear a mask when you come to church.  You are permitted to remove your mask if you desire when worshiping, but be mindful of others around you.  If you have NOT been vaccinated or have not had a two-week period since the second vaccine shot that you not remove your mask at all.
  7. If you have NOT been vaccinated, we ask that you keep your mask on during the entirety of the service as well as when you enter and exit the building.
  8. As you enter the Narthex, you will have an opportunity to pick up the following items before coming into the sanctuary.  Worship bulletin, extra mask, hand wipes, sanitizer and on First Sundays Communion elements.
  9. Also in the Narthex, there will be an offering stand for you to deposit your offering before entering or exiting the service.
  10. Restrooms are available.  We ask that you limit the number of persons in the space at a time.
  11. The exiting of the sanctuary after service will be coordinated by the ushers.  They will direct individuals row by row to avoid crowding during the exit process.  We ask that you exit the sanctuary immediately and not linger in the building.
  12. On Sunday mornings, the church will be open for in-person Adult Christian Education classes.  Classes are taught by Rev. Lackard and Minister Thompson, which will meet in the Fellowship Hall.  A mask must be worn and social distance practices are required.  On-line Sunday classes taught by Kathy Oliver Jones will continue to meet via Zoom.

 

We pray that the worship experience is enriching and that you will feel safe as we worship together U
