Hymn 301

Mary Baker Eddy

“Communion Hymn”

Saw ye my Saviour? Heard ye the glad sound?
Felt ye the power of the Word?
'Twas the Truth that made us free,
And was found by you and me
In the life and the love of our Lord.

Mourner, it calls you,-"Come to my bosom,
Love wipes your tears all away,
And will lift the shade of gloom,
And for you make radiant room
Midst the glories of one endless day."

Sinner, it calls you,-"Come to this fountain,
Cleanse the foul senses within;
'Tis the Spirit that makes pure,
That exalts thee, and will cure
All thy sorrow and sickness and sin."

Strongest deliverer, friend of the friendless,
Life of all being divine:
Thou the Christ, and not the creed;
Thou the Truth in thought and deed;
Thou the water, the bread, and the wine.

Hymn 152

Ellen J. Glover

In speechless prayer and reverence,
Dear Lord, I come to Thee;
My heart with love Thou fillest,
Yea, with humility.
My bread and wine Thou art,
With Thee I hold communion;
Thy presence healeth me.

To do Thy will is greater
Than sacrifice can be;
O give me needed courage
Sweet with sincerity.
From earthly thought released,
In speechless prayer and reverence,
Dear Lord, I come to Thee.

Come, Follow Me
Joel Raney, music
Joseph M. Martin, words

Come, follow Me,
the Savior cries,
gather to My side,
leave the world behind.
Put your trust in God, and follow My footsteps.
I will shepherd you and be your guide.
Come, follow Me, come and follow Me,
pick up your cross and follow where I lead.
Come, follow Me, come now and follow Me.
I’ll be your shepherd, you, My lamb.
Come, follow Me, come, follow Me.
My guiding light will shine like the day.
I will never leave you lost and alone.
My peace will comfort you, as you travel on,
My grace will abide.
My grace will abide and bring you home.
Follow Me, follow Me, follow Me, follow Me, follow Me!
Come, follow Me, come and follow Me,
pick up your cross and follow where I lead.
Come, follow Me, come now and follow Me,
come, follow Me.
I’ll be your shepherd, your shepherd,
I’ll be your shepherd, you, My lamb.
Come, follow Me, come, follow Me, come, follow Me.

Come follow Me.

Golden Text: 

I John 3:18

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

Responsive Reading:

John 13:1, 3–5, 8–10 (to :), 12–15
1 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
5 After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit:
12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
