Closing Song: “I Rejoice” by Chris Muglia Who am I that you would see the possibility in me and say, “I choose you”? Who am I that you would see the emptiness in me and fill me with light? For all you do, for all you’ve done, for all your gifts, for all your love, For all the ways that you have given life … I rejoice in you, My Lord, for all you’ve done for me! Who am I that you, the Maker of the Universe, would let the sinner love you? Who am I to bow before you now and offer you a song when you need not my praise? For all you do, for all you’ve done, for all your gifts, for all your love, For all the ways that you have given life … I rejoice in you, My Lord, for all you’ve done for me!
