Parnell and in honor of Velma Parnell by Robert Alphin and Brent Weavil. Watch Word for the week: Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10 Lord You Give Beyond All Measure ~ Sawtelle Lord, You give beyond all measure. Gifts of beauty, gifts of grace. Gifts of earth and gifts of heaven. Gifts for all the human race. Sacred gift of Christ, most bless-ed. Freedom from our sins confess-ed. All we have comes from above. Thank you, Lord, for boundless love. We are called to faithful service. For the blessings from Your hand. To return the gifts You’ve granted, Stewards in Your perfect plan. Free us from our earthly treasure; Us unite in heavenly pleasure. May we sense from heaven above How to live out Boundless Love.
Lord, I offer but a portion What You have on me bestowed Seal my heart; make me an offering Forward in Christ’s way I go I commit my time and treasury Talent, skill with which you’ve bless me. I return to you above Gifts received your boundless love
