Stepping Stones

Tune: St Bees

('Hark my soul, it is  the Lord')


Gifts and graces, you Lord give

And through you your people live

Fan the flame, the spark within

Spirit, cleanse us from all sin


Here to take each day today

Pray you do reveal your way

And your will to hearts open

We shall progress steady then


Here a walk, not rush or toil

Evil one shall not us foil

But to put faith in action

Or else profitless each one


Your desire that all be saved

Christ your Son the way has paved

Take us, take me, may we serve

You, though we none it deserve




  • Laura🌻


    Amen to that!
    Enjoy your day!

        Thanks B&A. Now I'm building up a fogie picture - Gothic, very old, bald people (women too?), creaking organs,.... . Doh, is that today's church? Not everywhere!
