Hymn 104

Duncan Sinclair, words
Mark J. Monk, music

Help us, O Lord, to bear the cross,
The cross our Master bore;
To brave the senses' angry shock,
Our faith secure upon the rock
Of Christ, forevermore.

Grant us, O Love, the strength to drink
Thy cup on earth below,
The inspiration that it brings,
The hope serene that from it springs
To lighten every woe.

Give us, O Truth, Thou light of men,
Thy benediction rare,
That courage may sustain our way
Out of the darkness into day,
Thy day, celestial, fair.

Thus shall our Spirit, Mind divine,
Lead us to heaven's bowers:
The cross laid down; the victory won
O'er sense and self; revealed the Son;
The crown forever ours.


Readings from the Bible, and correlative passages from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.


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

Hymn 365

William F. Lloyd, words
Arr. from Carl Maria von Weber, music

Wait, my soul, upon the Lord,
To His gracious promise flee,
Laying hold upon His Word:
As thy days thy strength shall be.

If the sorrows of thy case
Seem peculiar still to thee,
God has promised needful grace:
As thy days thy strength shall be.

Rock of Ages, I'm secure
With Thy promise full and free,
Faithful, positive, and sure:
As thy days thy strength shall be.

Hymn 533

Pauline T., adapt., alt., words
Robert Lowry; harm. Robert Rockabrand, music

My life flows on in endless song
Above earth's lamentation;
I hear the sweet though far-off hymn
That hails a new creation.
Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear the music ringing;
It finds an echo in my soul.
How can I keep from singing?

What though my human comforts die,
The Lord my Savior liveth;
What though the darkness gather round,
Songs in the night God giveth.
No storm can shake my inmost calm
While to that Rock I'm clinging;
Since Love is God of heaven and earth,
How can I keep from singing?

I lift mine eyes, the cloud grows thin;
I see the blue above it.
And day by day this pathway smooths
Since first I learned to love it.
The peace of Christ makes fresh my heart,
A fountain ever springing;
All things are mine since I am God's.
How can I keep from singing?
