3 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner Hosanna, loud hosanna the happy children sang; through pillared court and temple the joyful anthem rang; to Jesus, who had blessed them close folded to his breast, the children sang their praises, the simplest and the best.

4 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner From Olivet they followed ‘mid an exultant crowd, the victory palm branch waving, and singing clear and loud; the Lord of earth and heaven rode on in lowly state, content that little children should on his bidding wait.

5 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner “Hosanna in the highest!” That ancient song we sing, for Christ is our Redeemer; earth, let your anthems ring. O may we ever praise him with heart and life and voice, and in his humble presence eternally rejoice! - Words: Jeanette Threlfall - Music: trad. German tune

6 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner * Invitation to Worship One:My soul cries out with a joyful shout that the God of my heart is great, and my spirit sings of the wondrous things that you bring to the ones who wait. You fixed your sight on your servant's plight, and my weakness you did not spurn, so from east to west shall my name be blest. Could the world be about to turn?

7 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner ALL:My heart shall sing of the day you bring. Let the fires of your justice burn. Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws near, and the world is about to turn!

8 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner One:Though I am small, my God, my all, you work great things in me, and your mercy will last from the depths of the past to the end of the age to be. Your very name puts the proud to shame, and to those who would for you yearn, you will show your might, put the strong to flight, for the world is about to turn.

9 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner ALL:My heart shall sing of the day you bring. Let the fires of your justice burn. Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws near, and the world is about to turn!

10 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner One: From the halls of power to the fortress tower, not a stone will be left on stone. Let the king beware for your justice tears every tyrant from his throne. The hungry poor shall weep no more, for food they can never earn; there are tables spread, every mouth be fed, for the world is about to turn.

11 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner ALL:My heart shall sing of the day you bring. Let the fires of your justice burn. Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws near, and the world is about to turn!

12 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner One:Though the nations rage from age to age, we remember who holds us fast: God's mercy must deliver us from the conqueror's crushing grasp. This saving world that our forebears heard is the promise which holds us bound, 'til the spear and rod can be crushed by God, who is turning the world around.

13 “Joy is not in things- it’s in us” Robert Wagner ALL:My heart shall sing of the day you bring. Let the fires of your justice burn. Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws near, and the world is about to turn! AMEN. - Words: Rory Cooney
