Praise Team 

 
Hi folks, Ishbel here. I hope and pray that you're all okay. I'm missing you all already. Such strange times that we're living in, but we know that God is in control.  I was very moved playing and singing ( in now it turns out, our second last service for a while) the hymn Behold our God. 

Who has held the oceans in his hands
Who has numbered every grain of sand
Kings and nations tremble at his voice
All creation rises to rejoice
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him

To know that God is on the throne, seeing and ruling is such a comfort at this time.  On the subject of praising our God I thought it might be a good use of our time, until we meet again, to see if we could learn some new hymns, go over some old ones, learn some new psalm tunes or perhaps learn a harmony for a psalm tune? Let me know what you want and I'll see what we can do.  To kick us off myself, Katrin and Elspeth have sung a new song for you which Simon (on a platform on the north sea..isn't technology wonderful) has helped me put a link to. The song is called Give thanks to God and is based on Psalm 136 written by Pete Crockett and Allan McKinlay.  It's a call and response song. I hope you like it
Yours in Christ 
Ishbel

Give thanks to God

He sent His son to die, and rise again to save us
His never ending love is steadfast and sure
He's broken our chains and given us freedom
Give thanks to God for He is good

In Him we are alive and have joy everlasting
His never ending love is steadfast and sure
He casts out all fear and fills us with courage
Give thanks to God for He is good

When storms come and rage His peace overwhelms us
His never ending love is steadfast and sure
The Lord is our refuge when trouble surrounds us
Give thanks to God for He is good
Give thanks to God for He is good

He's always pouring out His abundant provision
His never ending love is steadfast and sure
For the depths of His riches and incredible wisdom
Give thanks to God for He is good

Give thanks to God for He is good
Give thanks to God for He is good
Give thanks to God for He is good
