CVPC youth dancers


As part of Sunday's Children Message, some of the youth danced to "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" as an illustration of God's love for all. 

         When you're weary, feeling small
         When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all (all)
         I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
         And friends just can't be found
         Like a bridge over troubled water
         I will lay me down
         Like a bridge over troubled water
         I will lay me down

                                             When you're down and out
                                             When you're on the street
                                             When evening falls so hard
                                             I will comfort you (ooo)
                                             I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
                                             And pain is all around
                                             Like a bridge over troubled water
                                             I will lay me down
                                             Like a bridge over troubled water
                                             I will lay me down

                     Sail on silver girl
                     Sail on by
                     Your time has come to shine
                     All your dreams are on their way                                                      
                     See how they shine
                     Oh, if you need a friend
                     I'm sailing right behind
                     Like a bridge over troubled water
                     I will ease your mind
                     Like a bridge over troubled water
                     I will ease your mind
                                                         Songwriter: Paul Simon

   Released in 1970, this song became Simon & Garfunkel's biggest hit single, and it is    
   often considered their signature song.  It was a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100
   for six weeks, and it also topped the charts in the United Kingdom, Canada, France, and
   New Zealand.  It was a top five hit in eight other countries as well, eventually selling over
   six million copies worldwide, making it among the best-selling singles.  It became one of
   the most performed songs of the twentieth century, with over 50 artists, among them
   Elvis Presley and Aretha Franklin, covering the song.  It was ranked number 48 on
   Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

 

The Youth happily danced again during worship service.  It was joyously received by the congregation.
