Softly & Tenderly and Poetry by Hafiz: Billy Roy
Billy Roy shares poetry by Hafiz and leads us in the classic hymn favorite, "Softly & Tenderly" from our Wimberley UMC sanctuary. Softly & Tenderly: Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling, Calling for you and for me; See, on the portals He’s waiting and watching, Watching for you and for me. Refrain: Come home, come home, You who are weary, come home; Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling, Calling, O sinner, come home! Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading, Pleading for you and for me? Why should we linger and heed not His mercies, Mercies for you and for me? Oh, for the wonderful love He has promised, Promised for you and for me! Though we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon, Pardon for you and for me. Amazing Grace (Tag): Amazing Grace how sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me! I once was lost but now I'm found Was blind but now I'm free When we've been there ten thousand years Bright shining as the sun We've no less days to sing God's praise Than when we first begun!
Billy Roy, our praise team leader, leads us in worship favorite, "Forever Reign"
Lyrics: Verse 1 You are good You are good When there's nothing good in me You are love You are love On display for all to see You are light You are light When the darkness closes in You are hope You are hope You have covered all my sin Verse 2 You are peace You are peace When my fear is crippling You are true You are true Even in my wandering You are joy You are joy You're the reason that I sing You are life You are life In You death has lost its sting Chorus (Oh) I'm running to Your arms I'm running to Your arms The riches of Your love will always be enough Nothing compares to Your embrace Light of the world forever reign Verse 3 You are more You are more Than my words will ever say You are Lord You are Lord All creation will proclaim You are here You are here In Your presence I'm made whole You are God You are God Of all else I'm letting go Bridge My heart will sing no other Name Jesus Jesus
