Offering



The Offering is Collected
To the tune of Adelle’s Rolling in the Deep: No Capo



Verse 1: Am F G
There’s a fire that’s burning in a bush
Calling you out and give you a push
Sex workers will go to heaven before you
Don’t put stock in the good works that you do

Verse 2:
There’s no safety in wealth or property
Waste and neglect are another form of greed
There’s a fire that’s burning in a bush
Calling you out and giving you a push



Bridge: F G Em F
Give all you have to those in need
And we’ll become equal in our vulnerability
Give all you have to those in need
And in your want you’ll find we already have it

Chorus: Am G F Em
All in All
And it was always free
From the font to the empty tomb
Grace is never, never cheap

Verse 3:
Baby I have a story to be told
About six gold coins and a careless widow
As she searches for the one that’s on the loose
So shall God always long for you


Bridge:
Chorus:



Verse 4: (percussion only)
Seek and find all your treasured gold
Invest it wise that’s where your heart will go
Count your blessings and honor what you owe
Pay me back in time, you’ll reap just what you sow


Bridge:
Chorus:



Pause for reflecting offering contribution.

Final Bridge:
You should have gave it ….
All in All
And it was always free
From the font to the empty tomb
Grace is never, never cheap

The Meal
To the Tune of the Lady Gaga’s Telephone Capo: 3



Dm F
G Dm
Raise your hearts and minds to God who’s above all
with the saints, and prophets have followed the call

Holy, holy, holy, we lift our voice to you
Blessed be your name, keep us forever true

On the night he was betrayed, Christ took the bread
Broke it, and gave thanks, give it for all to eat

Then after supper, he took the cup and gave thanks
Gave it for all to drink, said this is my blood, eh

The cup of the new covenant, I’ve shed for all of you
Every time you eat or drink, think of me too

Chorus:
Our God in heaven, hallow’d be your name
Your kingdom come, will be done, on earth as in heaven
Save me from temptation and keep me from all sin
all power and glory is yours again and again

Bridge:
A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, men
(Christ Body!) A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, men
(And Blood!) A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, men
(Now were one body!) A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, men

Come now Holy Spirit and put your blessings here
Gather us into one and take away our fear


[the bread is broken]


[chanted]
Sin all you want, but believe even more, love your neighbor and help the poor
Out in the streets, or in the store, God loves you forever more

Sin all you want, but believe even more, love your neighbor and help the poor
Out in the streets, or in the store, God loves you forever more


Blessings
To the Tune of the Beatles’ Let it Be Capo: 2

Help us bring justice, Go in peace
