Prelude

Chant du soir by Marco Enrico Bossi
Devozione

Hymn 388

James Montgomery, adapted, words
Jeremiah Clark, music

When like a stranger on our sphere
The lowly Jesus sojourned here,
Where'er he went affliction fled,
The sick were healed, the hungry fed.

With bounding steps the halt and lame
To hail their great deliverer came;
For him the grave could hold no dread,
He spoke the word and raised the dead.

Through paths of loving-kindness led,
Where Jesus triumphed we would tread;
To all with willing hands dispense
The gifts of our benevolence.

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 486

Maude DeVerse Newton, adapt., alt., words
Suzanne Montgomery, music

God sends the Word, the holy Word,
And grieving hearts are healed;
Uplifted they behold in light
Man's heritage revealed;
For this we bless You, Lord.

You send Your Word, Your shining Word
Of Truth, forever one,
And all mankind rejoice to know
The dream of sorrow done;
For this we bless You, Lord.

You send Your Word, Your faithful Word,
And hosts who toil in vain
Reject the falsehood ages taught
And rise to Life again;
For this we bless You, Lord.

Hymn 585

Laura Lee Randall, alt., words
Jonathan Roberts, music

This is the day the Lord has made;
Be glad, give thanks, rejoice;
Stand in God's presence, unafraid,
In praise lift up your voice.
All perfect gifts are from above,
And all our blessings show
The amplitude of God's dear love
Which every heart may know.

The Lord will hear before we call,
And every need supply;
Good things are freely given to all
Who on God's word rely.
We come today to bring Love praise
Not for such gifts alone,
But for the higher, deeper ways
In which God's love is shown.

For sin destroyed, for sorrow healed,
For health and peace restored;
For Life and Love by Truth revealed,
We thank and bless the Lord.
This is the day the Lord has made,
In praise lift up your voice.
In shining robes of joy arrayed,
Be glad, give thanks, rejoice.
