Prelude 

He Who Lets Only Beloved God Guide Him, BWV 642, 691, 690, 642, by Johann Sebastian Bach
Now come, Saviour of the Nations, BWV 599, by Johann Sebastian Bach

Hymn 289

M. Bettie Bell

Press on, dear traveler, press thou on,
I am the Way, the Truth, the Life.
It is the straight and narrow way
That leads to that eternal day,
That turns the darkness into light,
That buries wrong and honors right.

Press on, and know that God is all;
He is the Life, the Truth, the Love.
It is the way the Saviour trod,
It is the way that leads to God.
Think of the words: No cross, no crown;
Though tasks are sore, be not cast down.

Hymn 245

Frederic W. Root

O tender, loving Shepherd,
We long to follow thee,
To follow where thou leadest,
Though rough the path may be;
Though dark and heavy shadows
Enshroud the way with gloom,
We know that Love will guide us,
And safely lead us home.

We know, beloved Shepherd,
The path that thou hast trod
Leads ever out of darkness,
And on and up to God.
If from that path we wander,
And far astray we roam,
O, call us, faithful Shepherd,
And bring us safely home.

Throughout the way, dear Shepherd,
Thy strong hand doth uphold;
The weary ones, at nightfall,
Thou gently dost enfold.
And when to Truth's green pastures
With joy at length we come,
There shall we find, O Shepherd,
Our blest, eternal home.

Hymn 290

William Gaskell, adapted

Press on, press on, ye sons of light,
Untiring in your holy fight,
Still treading each temptation down,
And battling for a brighter crown.

Press on, press on, and fear no foe,
With calm resolve to triumph go;
Victorious over every ill,
Press on to higher glory still.

Press on, press on, still look in faith
To Him who conquers sin and death;
Then shall ye hear His word, Well done!
True to the last, press on, press on.
