Prelude

Voluntary on Falmouth (Hymn 36)

Hymn 36

Horatius Bonar, adapted, words
Walter E. Young, music

Church of the ever-living God,
The Father's gracious choice;
Amid the voices of this earth
How mighty is thy voice.

Thy words, amid the words of earth,
How noiseless and how pure;
Amid the hurrying crowds of time
Thy step how calm and sure.

Amid the restless eyes of earth
How steadfast is thine eye,
Fixed on the silent loveliness
That fills the morning sky.

Untiring praise we lift on high,
Unfaltering songs we sing,
Unending festival we keep
In presence of the King.

Readings

Readings 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 37

Samuel Johnson*, words
John B. Dykes, music

City of God, how broad and far
Outspread thy walls sublime;
The true thy chartered freemen are,
Of every age and clime.

One holy church, one army strong,
One steadfast high intent,
One working band, one harvest song,
One King omnipotent.

How gleam thy watch fires through the night,
With never fainting ray;
How rise thy towers, serene and bright,
To meet the dawning day.

In vain the surge's angry shock,
In vain the drifting sands;
Unharmed upon th' eternal Rock,
The heavenly city stands.

Hymn 586

Pablo Sosa, adapt.; eng. tr. Mary Louise Bringle, adapt., words
Pablo Sosa; harm. and arr. CSPS, music

REFRAIN
This is the day, this is the day,
This is the day that God has made!

Open, now open the doorways of justice,
Let us be glad as we pass through those gates.
There is the place where the righteous may enter,
Singing to God with thanksgiving and praise.

REFRAIN
I will sing praises because You have heard me,
Offering salvation with grace upon grace.
Turning the stone that the builders rejected,
Into the cornerstone, rock of our faith.

REFRAIN
It is the Lord who has done all these wonders;
I have seen marvelous, marvelous things.
This is the day that the Lord has created;
Join the rejoicing as every heart sings.
