Forever and ever. Amen. Amen.

Hymn - “We Bow Down” Songbook #88

You are Lord of creation and Lord of my life Lord of the land and the sea
You were Lord of the heavens before there was time
And Lord of all lords You will be

 We bow down and we worship You Lord
We bow down and we worship You Lord
We bow down and we worship You Lord
Lord of all lords You will be

You are King of creation and King of my life
King of the land and the sea
You were King of the heavens before there was time
And King of all kings You will be

We bow down and we crown You the King
We bow down and we crown You the King
We bow down and we crown You the King
King of all kings You will be

The way of the Lord
Blessed is the one
