Prelude 

Chorale and Finale (from Sixth Organ Sonata), by Felix Mendelssohn
Evening Prayer, by Henry Smart

Hymn 248

Thomas H. Gill, words
English Traditional Melody, music

O walk with God along the road,
Your strength He will renew;
Wait on the everlasting God,
And He will walk with you.

Ye shall not to your daily task
Without your God repair,
But on your work His blessing ask
And prove His glory there.

Ye shall not faint, ye shall not fail;
In Spirit ye are strong;
Each task divine ye still shall hail,
And blend it with a song.

Hymn 443

Juliane Klein; Eng. Tr. CSPS, words
Juliane Klein, music

Be gentle, be pure.
Since Spirit keeps all secure,
No pain or fear has power.
Be gentle, be pure;
Love guards, Love guides this hour.

Be tranquil, be free.
Since Life holds both you and me,
We know what Life has wrought.
Be tranquil, be free;
Infirmity is nought.

Be watchful, be still.
Then listen for Love's clear will
Which keeps us safe, at ease.
Be watchful, be still;
Assured your God you'll please.

Be joyful, be calm.
As Soul's own melodious psalm,
Each day you're sung anew.
Be joyful, be calm;
Know well that God loves you.

Poem Notes: Psalms 46:10 / II Timothy 2:24 / James 3:13-18.

Hymn 419

Robert Ellis Key, words
George Hews, music

O Love whose perfect path is known
To all who walk the ways of God,
Whose mysteries are so clearly shown
To pilgrims with the gospel shod;

Thy radiance is so pure, so free,
So beautiful and swift to bless,
That by reflection constantly
We manifest Thy tenderness:

And every sacred shrine shall burn
With flames of Truth divinely bright,
And every weary child shall turn
In gratitude toward Thee, the Light.
