Confirmation: O Breathe On Me, O Breath Of God

O breathe on me, O breath of God,
Fill me with life anew
That I may love the things you love,
And do what you would do.

O breathe on me, O breath of God,
Until my heart is pure;
Until my will is one with yours,
To do and to endure.

O breathe on me, O breath of God,
My will to yours incline,
Until this selfish part of me
Glows with your fire divine.

O breathe on me, O breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with you the perfect life
Of your eternity.

Communion #1: Worthy Is The Lamb

Refrain:
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
to receive honor and glory.
Worthy are the ones who believe
to receive the goodness of God.

Worthy are you, O paschal Lamb.
Wisdom and strength belong now to you.
You laid down your life and died upon the cross:
we've become a people of hope.


Refrain

Worthy are you, O Bread of Life.
Salvation and joy belong now to us.
By conquering death and rising to new life,
we've become a people of praise.

 

Refrain

Worthy are you, O risen Christ.
Wonders and signs, revealing your might.
Your power and glory shine upon our lives:
we've become your light for the world.

 

Refrain

Communion #2: Pan de Vida

Refrain:
Pan de vida, cuerpo del Señor
Cup of blessing, blood of Christ the Lord
At this table the last shall be first
Poder es servir, porque Dios es amor

We are the dwelling of God
Fragile and wounded and weak
We are the body of Christ
Called to be the compassion of God

 

Refrain

You call me Teacher and Lord;
I, who have washed your feet.
So you must do as I do,
so the greatest must become the least.

 

Refrain

There is no Jew or Greek
There is no slave or free
There is no woman or man
Only heirs of the promise of God

 

Refrain

Communion #3: Now We Remain

Refrain:
We hold the death of the Lord deep in our hearts.
Living, now we remain with Jesus, the Christ.

 

Once we were people afraid, lost in the night.
Then by your cross we were saved.
Dead became living, life from your giving.

 

Refrain

Something which we have known,
Something we've touched, what we have seen with our eyes:
This we have heard, life giving Word.

 

Refrain

He chose to give of himself, became our bread.
Broken that we might live. Love beyond love, pain for our pain.

 

Refrain

​Recessional Hymn: Alleluia! Alleluia! (Hymn of Joy)

Alleluia! Alleluia! Hearts to heav'n and voices raise;
Sing to God a hymn of gladness, Sing to God a hymn of praise.
He who on the cross as Savior for the world's salvation bled,
Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, Now is risen from the dead.

Now the iron bars are broken, Christ from death to life is born,
Glorious life, and life immortal, on this resurrection morn;
Christ has triumphed, and we conquer by his mighty enterprise,
We with him to life eternal by his resurrection rise.
