Stay with me, I'll stay with you every night and day with you. Stay with me, I'll stay with you every night and day with you.

1. My door was open and you came inside. My house was empty till you satisfied
with the gift you came to share:
life forever in your care.
Jesus, you're beside me everywhere.

2. We eat together, it's a special time. So much is given in the bread and wine: more than just a memory,
here you give yourself to me.
Risen Jesus, now my eyes can see.

3. You show me places where I need to go, lead me to people that I need to know. Lead me further on your way,
call me closer when I stray.
Stay beside me, let me hear you say:

1985. "Make your home in me as I make mine in you" (John 15:4) was the theme for the evening student service on May 5th, 1985.

ALWS 29/5/24

In May 2023 we travelled to the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia, seeing work supported by Australian Lutheran World Service. Dorothy and I are Ambassadors for the ALWS programme, Lives You Touch. We are encouraging people to leave money in their will for the work of ALWS. We committed to leave a third of our will many years ago and hope many others can touch lives in this way.

Last year we visited churches in SA, Vic, Qld and WA with Jonathan & Julie Krause promoting the cause of ALWS.
