* ENTRANCE HYMN  My Country ‘Tis of Thee

Christ is Made the Sure Foundation 
Words: John Mason Neale (1818-1866)
Music: arr. Dale Wood (1934-2003)
Park Street Chamber Choir

Christ is made the sure foundation
Christ the head and cornerstone
Chosen of the Lord and precious
Binding all the Church in one
Holy Zion’s help forever
And her confidence alone

To this temple where we call Thee
Come O Lord of Hosts today
With Thy wonted lovingkindness
Hear Thy people as they pray
And Thy fullest benediction
Shed within its walls alway

Laud and honor to the Father
Laud and honor to the Son
Laud and honor to the Spirit
Ever Three and ever One
One in might and one in glory
While unending ages run.

led by Cindy Cutlip, Elder

from Psalm 22
Leader: My praise is of you in the great congregation;
my vows will I perform in the sight of those who fear him.
People: The poor shall eat and be satisfied;
those who seek after the LORD shall praise him; may your
hearts live for ever.
Leader: All the ends of the world shall remember, and be turned
unto the LORD,
and all the families of the nations shall worship before him.
People: For the kingdom is the LORD’s
and he is the Governor among the peoples.

* OPENING HYMN No. 111 This Is My Father’s World

Our Father who art in heaven; Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our coming day’s bread;
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors;
And lead us not into trial, but deliver us from the Evil One.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Neither can the floods drown it.

Be Thou My Vision
Words: Ancient Irish Hymn | versified Eleanor Hull (1860-1935)
Music: arr. Stephen Chatman (b. 1950)
Park Street Chamber Choir

Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me, save that thou art–
thou my best thought by day or by night,
waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;
thou my great Father, I thy true son;
thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.

High King of heaven, my victory won,
may I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
