Prayer, by H.M. Higgs

Hymn 561

Para. Matthew 6:9-13
Richard D. Row, alt.

Our heavenly Father-Mother Love abiding,
We worship You, We praise Your holy name.
Teach us Your children evermore to love You;
Your will be done in earth as heaven today.
Teach us Your children evermore to love You;
Your will be done in earth as heaven today.

O give us grace to meet the coming morrow;
Forgive our debts as others we forgive.
You never lead Your children to temptation.
Deliver us from evil and from sin.
Yours is the kingdom, Yours the power and glory,
World without end, forevermore, Amen.

Poem Notes: This text, based upon the Lord’s Prayer, is joined here with the well-known tune from Jean Sibelius’s 1900 orchestral work Finalandia.

Hymn 127

Joseph Swain, adapted

How sweet, how heavenly is the sight,
When those who love the Lord
In one another's peace delight,
And so fulfill His word;

When, free from envy, scorn, and pride,
Our wishes all above,
Each can his brother's failings hide,
And show a brother's love.

Let love, in one delightful stream,
Through every bosom flow;
And union sweet, and dear esteem
In every action glow.

Love is the golden chain that binds
The hearts that faithful prove;
And he's an heir of heaven who finds
His bosom glow with love.

Hymn 163

Mary A. Livermore, adapted

Jesus, what precept is like thine:
Forgive, as ye would be forgiven;
If heeded, O what power divine
Would then transform our earth to heaven.

So from our hearts must ever flow
A love that will all wrong outweigh;
Our lips must only blessings know,
And wrath and sin shall die away.

For it is Mind's most holy plan
To bring the wanderer back by love;
Then let us win our brother man,
And glorify our God above.
