Horse and Rider Are Cast into the Sea

Hymns and readings for the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost
September 11, 2005

Exodus 14:19-31
Psalm 114
Exodus 15:1b-11, 20-21
Romans 14:1-12
Matthew 18:21-35

The fourteenth and fifteenth chapters of Exodus tell the story of the parting of the Red Sea and the defeat of Pharoah's army. I like this modern praise song which is sung as a round.

The Horse and Rider

I will sing unto the Lord
for He has triumphed gloriously;
the horse and rider thrown into the sea...

The Lord my God,
My strength and song
Is now become my victory.

The Lord is God
And I will praise Him,
My father’s God, and I will exalt him.



Awake, Awake to Love and Work
This hymn was written by G.A. Studdert-Kennedy. The tune is called "Morning Song" and comes from Wyeth's Respository of Sacred Music, Part Second from 1813.

1
Awake, awake to love and work!
The lark is in the sky;
The fields are wet with diamond dew;
The worlds awake to cry
Their blessings on the Lord of life,
As He goes meekly by.

2
Come, let thy voice be one with theirs,
Shout with their shout of praise;
See how the giant sun soars up,
Great lord of years and days!
So let the love of Jesus come
And set thy soul ablaze.

3
To give and give, and give again,
What God hath given thee;
To spend thyself nor count the cost;
To serve right gloriously
The God who gave all worlds that are,
And all that are to be.
.

God of the Sparrow
This poem by Pastor Vajda has been published as a beautiful picture book. I couldn't find a MIDI file for the tune.
Tune: Carl F. Schalk, 1983
Lyrics: Jaroslav J. Vajda, 1983

1. God of the sparrow God of the whale
God of the swirling stars
How does the creature say Awe
How does the creature say Praise

2. God of the earthquake God of the storm
God of the trumpet blast
How does the creature cry Woe
How does the creature cry Save

3. God of the rainbow God of the cross
God of the empty grave
How does the creature say Grace
How does the creature say Thanks

4. God of the hungry God of the sick
God of the prodigal
How does the creature say Care
How does the creature say Life

5. God of the neighbor God of the foe
God of the pruning hook
How does the creature say Love
How does the creature say Peace

6. God of the ages God of the hand
God of the loving heart
How do your children say Joy
How do your children say Home

The Gospel reading was the story of the man who was forgiven his debts by the king, but would not forgive his debtors. This is a most perfect hymn for the reading.

Freely, Freely
by Carol Owens

Verse

God forgave my sin in Jesus' name,
I've been born again in Jesus' name;
And in Jesus' name I come to you
To share His love as He told me to:

Chorus

He said, "Freely, freely you have received,
Freely, freely give;
Go in my name and because you believe,
Others will know that I live."


All pow'r is givn' in Jesus' name,
In earth and heav'n in Jesus' name;
And in Jesus' name I come to you
To share His pow'r as He told me to:

Chorus

He said, "Freely, freely you have received,
Freely, freely give;
Go in my name and because you believe,
Others will know that I live."

Help Us Accept Each Other

Help us accept each other as Christ accepted us;
Teach us as sister, brother, each person to embrace.
Be present, God, among us, and bring us to believe
We are ourselves accepted and meant to love and live.


Teach us, O God, your lessons, as in our daily life
We struggle to be human and search for hope and faith.
Teach us to care for people, for all, not just for some,
To love them as we find them, or as they may become.


Let your acceptance change us, so that we may be moved
In living situations to do the truth in love;
To practice your acceptance, until we know by heart
The table of forgiveness and laughter's healing art.


God, for today's encounters with all who are in need,
Who hunger for acceptance, for righteousness and bread,
Bring us new eyes for seeing, new hands for holding on;
Renew us with your Spirit; God! Free us, make us one!
