Lord, We Set Apart This Time

words and music by Greg Scheer

This hymn makes the perfect bookends for a service: verse one is a call to worship and verse two is a call to service. Because it's written in four-part hymn form rather than leadsheet, it's also appropriate for choir.

1. Lord, we set apart this time;
dedicate it to You.
Ev'ry word and song and thought;
consecrated to You.

Father, we Your children come,
gathering into Your love.
In Jesus name, in the Spirit's pow'r,
Trinity enfold us.

2. Ev'ry moment, ev'ry day,
may we walk with Jesus.
All we think and do and say;
Lord, may it be pleasing.

Father, we into Your world,
go to make Your glory known.
We pray that Jesus would give us love.
Holy Spir't empow'r us.
