Out of twigs and hickory barky, barky

     They came in by twosie, twosies (x2)
     Elephants and kangaroosie, roosies

It rained and poured
For forty daysie, daysies (x2)
Rained and poured ‘til all went crazy, crazies,
Children of the Lord. Refrain

     Everything is hunky dory, dory
     Children of the Lord.  Refrain

PRAYER OF APPROACH:  O God of creation, whose spirit stilled the waters of chaos, whose breath filled humankind with life, we praise you.  O God of inspiration, whose spirit descended dove-like on the man of Galilee, whose glory shone in words of wisdom and deeds of love, we praise you.  O God of Pentecost, whose spirit came to the faithful waiting in Jerusalem, whose gifts empowered the church for service and witness, we praise you and pray to you: Our Father....

Bible & Trinity Trivia

 

HYMN:  It only takes a spark to get a fire going,

and soon all those around can warm up in its glowing:

that's how it is with God's love, once you've experienced it:

you spread God's love to everyone, you want to pass it on.

    

What a wondrous time is spring when all the trees are budding,  the birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming;

that's how it is with God's love, once you've experienced it:

you want to sing, it's fresh like spring, you want to pass it on.

 

What I wish for you, my friend, this happiness that I've found

- on God you can depend, it matters not where you're bound;

I'll shout it from the mountain top; I want my world to know:

the Lord of love has come to me,  I want to pass it on.
