Dear family in Christ

On this National Day weekend, I was reminded of a very meaningful song written some years ago by bishop Robert Solomon, the former Bishop of The Methodist Church of Singapore. The song is entitled “From Many Shores”. You can view the song video clip by accessing our church website and click on the graphic icon “From Many Shores”. May I encourage you to take some time to reflect on the lyrics, give thanks to God and pray for our nation.

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”  Proverbs 14:34

Pastor John

1 FROM MANY SHORES you gathered, Our fathers mothers all
And gave as home this island, So precious though so small
They toiled and built our nation, As You blessed them with grace
O God of our salvation, We seek Your holy face

Chorus:  Bless Singapore our home with peace, And make us a blessing,
   To the nations near and far, We worship You our King,
   May everyone know who You are!

2 We’re many tongues and colours, Teach us to live as one
Bless all our dreams and labours, In all Your will be done
Help us to honour cherish, All that is good and right
Let all Your people flourish, As we live in Your light

3 We pray for all our children, Our leaders workers too
That we would all be open, To trust Your word as true
Let righteousness and justice, Your mercy and Your love
Be found in home and office, As we each other serve

4 We know our strength is in You, Our future in Your hands
Our nation Lord come renew, Come heal and bless our land
Let every street and heartland, Echo the name of Christ
To every heart and home extend, Your love Your grace Your light
