Church opening, news from Rev Ginni

I hope you are all well.
Good news!  We are getting close to being able to open our churches again!  Although we will be restricted by what we can do, (no sharing of the peace, no singing and possibly no Communion) we will be opening our doors at St Ippolyts on Sunday 12th July at 9.15am.  We can only socially distance a maximum of 30 people and we have still to finalise some details and arrangements so please do check St Ippolyts Church website and also the benefice Facebook page nearer the time.  The service will still be live-streamed to Facebook.
We plan to live-stream tomorrow's service from St Ippolyts Church to see how well we can manage it so do please bear with us if there are any glitches.  More good news though......there will be music!!  The words are printed below
Very much looking forward to seeing you all soon.
Much love

1st Hymn – All Creatures of our God and King.

All creatures of our God and King, 
lift up your voice and with us sing 
alleluia, alleluia! 
Thou burning sun with golden beam, 
thou silver moon with softer gleam, 
O praise him, O praise him, 
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! 

Thou rushing wind that art so strong, 
ye clouds that sail in heav'n along, 
O praise him, alleluia! 
Thou rising morn, in praise rejoice, 
ye lights of evening, find a voice, 
O praise him, O praise him, 
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! 

Thou flowing water, pure and clear, 
make music for thy Lord to hear, 
alleluia, alleluia!
Thou fire so masterful and bright, 
that givest man both warmth and light, 
O praise him, O praise him, 
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! 

Let all things their Creator bless,
and worship him in humbleness,
O praise him, alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
and praise the Spirit, three in one, 
O praise him, O praise him, 
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2nd Hymn – Praise my soul, the King of heaven.

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;
to his feet your tribute bring.
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
evermore his praises sing.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Praise the everlasting King!

Praise him for his grace and favour
to our fathers in distress.
Praise him, still the same as ever,
slow to chide, and swift to bless.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Glorious in his faithfulness!

Father-like he tends and spares us;
well our feeble frame he knows.
In his hands he gently bears us,
rescues us from all our foes.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Widely yet his mercy flows!

Angels, help us to adore him;
ye behold him face to face.
Sun and moon, bow down before him,
dwellers all in time and space.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Praise with us the God of grace!
