Guidance In the Valley

By Lorraine J. Anderson

To the old English Tune “Early One Morning.”

Early in the morning, our Lord would go walking

Teaching the apostles, and singing a new song.

Come to me, walk with me,

I’ll shepherd you and guide you.

Come and join me, for I love you so.

He never promised us an easy life in this world

He promised us the Spirit to guide us in our life.

Come to Me, Walk with Me,

I’ll shepherd you and guide you.

Come and join me, for I love you so.

When in this sin-filled world, He perform His miracles,

But his teaching has guided us in the millennia since.

Come to Me, Walk with Me

I’ll shepherd you and guide you.

Come and join me, for I love you so.

Will you join with me and walk with Jesus,

Come with us, join with us, and the Spirit will give you peace.

Come to Me, Walk with Me,

I’ll shepherd you and guide you.

Come and join me, for I love you so.

We Gather Around the Teacher

By Lorraine J Anderson

  1. We gather around the Teacher
    He stops upon a hill.
    We hope to see a miracle.
    He tells us to be still.
    Father, as we gather here today,
    Help us to worship in Your way.
  2. We gather around the Teacher,
    He talks to us of grace
    We hope to see a miracle,
    But hear parables in this place.
    Father, as we gather here today,
    Help us to worship in Your way.
  3. We gather around the Teacher,
    A full five thousand strong,
    We hope to see a miracle,
    He teaches right and wrong.
    Father, as we gather here today,
    Help us to worship in Your way.
  4. We gather around the Teacher,
    We hunger, the day is late,
    We hope to see a miracle
    He talks to us of fate.
    Father, as we gather here today,
    Help us to worship in Your way.
  5. We gather around the teacher
    The lame and sick arise
    We witness many miracles
    Our praises lift to the skies
    Father, as we gather here today,
    Help us to worship in Your way.
  6. We gather around the Teacher,
    He blesses the fish and bread,
    We witness another miracle
    As all of us were fed.
    Father, as we gather today,
    Help us to worship in Your way.
  7. We still gather around the Teacher,
    His wisdom still we praise,
    May you learn to know His miracles
    As he guides us through our days.
    Father, as we gather here today
    Help us to worship in your way.

Amen
