Lift Every Voice and Sing!

The choir has been enjoying their copies of the hymnal supplement: Lift Every Voice and Sing! and we want to share a new Gospel hymn from it at the 10:15 worship service this Sunday. Our Communion hymn will be “Let it Breathe on Me” by Magnolia Lewis-Butts. It is about experiencing the supporting closeness of God by feeling the breath of the Holy Spirit: “When the pathway Lord, I cannot see, when the way is dark, Lord, breathe on me. Give me grace to know when thou art near Oh, I pray thee, Lord, please breathe on me.”  In the coming weeks, we will also lead the congregation in more Spirit songs from the hymnal supplement: “I’m gonna sing when the Spirit says sing” and “Ev’ry time I feel the Spirit.”  We hope to purchase more copies of Lift Every Voice and Sing! for the congregation in the future.
