I Love to Tell the Story


I love to tell the sto-ry of un-seen things a-bove,  Of Je-sus and His glo-ry, of Je-sus and His love;  I love to tell the sto-ry be-cause I know ‘tis true, It sat-is-fies my long-ings as noth-ing else can do.


I love to tell the sto-ry, for those who know it best  Seem hun-ger-ing and thirst-ing to hear it like the rest;   And when in scenes of glo-ry

 I sing the new, new song, “Twill be the old, old sto-ry that I have loved so long.


Refrain:  I love to tell the story: “Twill be my theme in glory…To tell the old, old story  Of Jesus and His love.


“He Lives”


I serve a ris-en  Sav-ior, He’s in the world to-day;  I know that He is liv-ing, what-ev-er men may say;  I see His hand of mer-cy, I hear His voice of cheer, And just the time I need Him  He’s al-ways near.


Re-joice, re-joice, O Chris-tian,  lift up your voice and sing E-ter-nal hal-le-lu-jahs to Je-sus Christ the King! The Hope of all who seek Him, the Help of all who find, None oth-er is so lov-ing, so good and kind.


Refrain:  He lives, (He lives,) He lives, (He lives,)   Christ Je-sus lives to-day!  He walks with me and talks with me a-long life’s nar-row way.  He lives, (He lives,) He lives, (He lives,) sal-va-tion to im-part!  You ask me how I know He lives?  He lives with-in my heart!


“Seek Ye First”


Seek ye first the king-dom of God And His righ-teous-ness, And all these things shall be add-ed un-to you… Al-le-lu, al-le-lu-la!


Ask and it shall be giv-en un-to you, Seek and ye shall find, Knock and the door shall be o-pened un-to you… Al-le-lu, al-le-lu-ia!




A Special Membership Meeting is called for July 19th following Church Sevice to discuss the retention of the Church’s nonprofit sales tax exemption with the State of Maine and a proposed change to our Bylaws to address this
