Offertory in E (from "L'Organiste") by César Franck
Communion (from Tryptique Op. 58) by Louis Vierne
Frederick L. Hosmer
One thought I have, my ample creed,
So deep it is and broad,
And equal to my every need,—
It is the thought of God.
Each morn unfolds His blessings new,
I take in trust my road;
And rising freshly to my view,
Shines forth the thought of God.
To this their secret strength they owed,
The martyr’s path who trod;
The fountains of their patience flowed
From out their thought of God.
Be still the light upon my way,
My pilgrim staff and rod,
My rest by night, my strength by day,
O blessed thought of God.
Come, gracious Spirit, heavenly Love,
With light and comfort from above;
Be Thou our guardian, Thou our guide,
O’er every thought and step preside.
The light of Truth to us display,
That we may know and choose Thy way;
Plant holy joy in every heart,
That we from Thee may ne’er depart.
Lead us, O Christ, thou living Way,
Nor let us from thy precepts stray;
Lead us to God, our heavenly rest,
That we may be forever blest.
Frances A. Fox
In Thee, O Spirit true and tender,
I find my life as God’s own child;
Within Thy light of glorious splendor
I lose the earth-clouds drear and wild.
Within Thy love is safe abiding
From every thought that giveth fear;
Within Thy truth a perfect chiding,
Should I forget that Thou art near.
In Thee I have no pain or sorrow,
No anxious thought, no load of care.
Thou art the same today, tomorrow;
Thy love and truth are everywhere.
Sleepers Awake! A Voice is Calling, BWV 645 by Johann Sebastian Bach
