I will enter into Your gates with thanksgiving

I will enter into Your courts with praise (x2)

 

You O Lord are good

You O Lord are good

 

You are good, you are good

You are good

 

Your loving-kindness lasts forever

Your faithfulness from age-to-age (x2)

 

You O Lord are good

You O Lord are good

 

You are good, you are good

You are good

Next is “Lord of All,” which was offered as we came forward to share at the communion table. You’ll hear the creaky wooden floors, as well as the voices of the communion administrants as they offer the bread and cup to the community, all of which gives the song a particular kind of poignancy.

Maker of the moon and stars

Stirrer of the seas

Tender of the earth that feeds me

Clother of the lily fields

You are Lord of all

 

Giver of the air I breathe

Keeper of my soul

Author of the endless story

Love that never lets me go

You are Lord of all

 

You’re Lord of all the hurricanes

I’ll never handle on my own

You’re Lord of all the suff’ring

All the pain and sorrow that I’ve known

You’re Lord of all

And I will lift my voice

And praise Your holy name

Whatever may befall me

You are Lord of all

 

Mighty God and Holy One

Father, Spirit, Son

Wisdom of eternal ages

Here before the worlds were spun

You are Lord of all
