Hymn: Lord of All Hopefulness


Lord of all hopefulness,

Lord of all joy,

Whose trust, ever child-like,

No cares could destroy,

Be there at our waking,

And give us, we pray,

Your bliss in our hearts, Lord,

At the break of the day.


Lord of all eagerness, Lord of all faith,

Whose strong hands were skilled

At the plane and the lathe,

Be there at our labours,

And give us, we pray,

Your strength in our hearts, Lord,

At the noon of the day.


Lord of all kindliness, Lord of all grace,

Your hands swift to welcome,

Your arms to embrace,

Be there at our homing,

And give us, we pray,

Your love in our hearts, Lord,

At the eve of the day.


Lord of all gentleness, Lord of all calm,

Whose voice is contentment,

Whose presence is balm,

Be there at our sleeping,

And give us, we pray,

Your peace in our hearts, Lord,

At the end of the day.


Prayers, including The Lord's Prayer






Reading: 'He is gone'


You can shed tears that he is gone

or you can smile because he has lived.


You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back

or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.


Your heart can be empty because you can't see him

or you can be full of the love you shared.


You can turn your back on tomorrow and live for yesterday

or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.


You can remember him and only that he's gone

or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.


You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back

or you can do what he'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.


Last Post will be sounded (No Reveille) Played by Thomas
