Prelude

Andante religioso (from Sonata IV), by Felix Mendelssohn

Hymn 113

Hymn 554

Carol Norton. Alt.

One by one, pure thoughts and holy
Lift us out of self and sin;
One by one, bright gleams of glory
Show the goal we all will win.
One by one, our trusts are strengthened,
As our lives to God we give;
One by one, our days are lengthened,
While in Love we move and live.

One by one, our aims grow purer,
As our deeds reflect our God;
One by one, our path grows clearer,
Guided by Love's staff and rod.
One by one, our thoughts move forward
To the time by prophets told;
One by one, our lives move homeward
Singing of one Lord, one fold.

Then within Love's ever-presence
We shall live amid its light,
Knowing well that holy brilliance
Which is called the Infinite.
Know the glories of God's kingdom,
Hear the music Spirit sings,
Be at one with that great Wisdom
From which all creation springs.

Poem Notes: Psalms 23:4 / John 10:16 / Acts 17:28. The words of this hymn first appeared as a poem in the January 1902 issue of The Christian Science Journal.

Hymn 117

Reginald Heber*

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee.
Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty,
Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

Holy, Holy, Holy, darkness cannot hide Thee,
Though the eyes of sinful men Thy glory cannot see.
Thou alone art holy, there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love and purity.

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth,
and sky and sea;
Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty,
Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

* As noted in the 1932 hymnal, slight changes to the words were made.
