Prelude 

From God I Will Not Part, BWV 658 by Johann Sebastian Bach
Devozione by Marco Enrico Bossi

Hymn 137

Annie S. Hawks, words
Robert Lowry, music

I need Thee every hour,
Most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine
Can peace afford.

REFRAIN
I need Thee, O, I need Thee;
Every hour I need Thee;
O bless me now, my Saviour,
I come to Thee.

I need Thee every hour;
Stay Thou near-by;
Temptations lose their power
When Thou art nigh.

REFRAIN
I need Thee every hour;
Teach me Thy will;
And Thy rich promise, Lord,
In me fulfill.

REFRAIN

Reading

Reading from the BIBLE, and correlative passages from SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES.

Prayer

Silent Prayer, followed by the audible repetition of the Lord's Prayer, its spiritual interpretation being omitted.

Hymn 77

James Montgomery, words
Meiningen Gesangbuch, 1693, music

God is my strong salvation;
What foe have I to fear?
In darkness and temptation,
My light, my help is near:
Though hosts encamp around me,
Firm in the fight I stand;
What terror can confound me,
With God at my right hand?

Place on the Lord reliance;
My heart, with courage wait;
His truth be thine affiance,
When faint and desolate:
His might thy heart shall strengthen,
His love thy joy increase;
Thy day shall mercy lengthen:
The Lord will give thee peace.

Hymn 598

Elenora E. Pike, adapt., words
American melody, Moore’s Columbian Harmony, 1825; harm. CSPS.

Where you're going, Love will lead you.
Where you're walking, Love will guide.
If you're hungry, Love will feed you.
Love is always at your side.
When you're sleeping, Love will guard you.
When you waken, comfort give.
Always faithful, Love surrounds you,
For by Love alone we live.

Let not want or lack confine you,
Love is ever your supply.
God's great good shall now define you,
As on Love your hopes rely.
Though temptation may assail you,
Love will save you lest you stray.
Love's protection never fails you-
God is Love and guards your way.

Poem Notes: This text, joined here with a tune found in several early 19th-century American shape-note hymnals, is from a poem entitled “Protection,” first published in the October 10, 1925 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel.
