3Opening Hymn: Beautiful Day The heart is a bloom,shoots up through stony ground But there's no room,no space to rent in this town You're out of luckand the reason that you had to care, The traffic is stuckand you're not moving anywhere. You thought you’d found a friendto take you out of this place Someone you could lend a handin return for grace
4It's a beautiful day, the sky falls And you feel like it's a beautiful day It’s a beautiful day Don’t let it get awayYou’re on the roadbut you’ve got no destination You’re in the mud,in the maze of her imagination You love this towneven if it doesn’t ring true You’ve been all overand it’s been all over you
5It's a beautiful day Don’t let it get away It's a beautiful day Don’t let it get away Touch me, take me to that other place Teach me, I know I’m not a hopeless case
6See the world in green and blue See China right in front of you See the canyons broken by cloud See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out See the bedouin fires at night See the oil fields at first light See the bird with a leaf in her mouth After the flood all the colours came out It was a beautiful day Don’t let it get away A beautiful day
7Touch me, take me to that other place Reach me, I know I’m not a hopeless case What you don’t have you don’t need it now What you don’t knowyou can feel it somehow What you don’t have you don’t need it now You don’t need it now,you don’t need it now Beautiful day

19Gospel: Mark 9:30-37The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark. Glory to you Lord.Jesus and his disciples went on from there and passed through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know it; for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, "The Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, and they will kill him, and three days after being killed, he will rise again."
20But they did not understand what he was saying and were afraid to ask him. Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, "What were you arguing about on the way?" But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another who was the greatest. He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, "Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all."
21Praise to you Lord Christ. Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, "Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me."The Gospel of the Lord.Praise to you Lord Christ.

89One Step Closer I’m ‘round the corner from anything that’s real I’m across the road from hope I’m under a bridge in a rip tide That’s taken everything I call my own One step closer to knowing One step closer to knowing
90I’m on an island at a busy intersection I can’t go forward, I can’t turn back Can’t see the future It’s getting away from me I just watch the tail lights glowing One step closer to knowing One step closer to knowing One step closer to knowing Knowing, knowing
91I’m hanging out to dry With my old clothes Finger still red with the prick of an old rose Well the heart that hurts Is a heart that beats Can you hear the drummer slowing
92One step closer to knowing One step closer to knowing One step closer to knowing To knowing, to knowing, to knowing…

109Postlude: Where the Streets Have no Name I wanna run, I want to hide I wanna tear down the walls That hold me inside. I wanna reach out And touch the flame Where the streets have no name.

We're still building and burning down love Burning down love And when I go there I go there with you (It's all I can do) The city's a flood, and our love turns to rust We're beaten and blown by the wind Trampled in dust I'll show you a place High on a desert plain Where the streets have no name Where the streets have no name
111Where the Streets Have no Name, cont. We're still building and burning down love Burning down love. And when I go there, I go there with you (It's all I can do)Our love turns to rustWe’re beaten and blown by the wind, blown by the windSee our love turn to rustAnd when I go there, I go there with you(It’s all I can do)
