Prelude

Consolation by Franz Liszt
Cantilene (from Sonata No. 11 in D minor, Op. 148) by Josef Rheinberger

Hymn 494

John Burton, adapt., alt., words
James R. Corbett, music

Holy Bible, book divine,
Precious treasure, you are mine:
Mine to tell from where I came;
Mine to tell me what I am;

Mine to chide me when I rove,
Mine to show a Saviour's love;
Mine you are to guide and guard;
Mine to give a rich reward;

Mine to comfort in distress,
With a Saviour's tenderness;
Mine to show, by living faith,
Love can triumph over death.

Prayer

Hymn 363

John Bowring, adapted, words
R. E. Roberts, music

Upon the Gospel's sacred page
The gathered beams of ages shine;
And, as it hastens, every age
But makes its brightness more divine.

On mightier wing, in loftier flight,
From year to year does knowledge soar;
And, as it soars, the Gospel light
Becomes effulgent more and more.

More glorious still, as centuries roll,
New regions blest, new powers unfurled,
So Truth reveals the perfect whole,
Its radiance shall o'erflow the world,-

Shall flow to bless but not destroy;
As when the cloudless lamp of day
Pours out its floods of light and joy,
And sweeps the lingering mist away.

Hymn 251

William W. How, adapted, words
John P. Hullah, music

O Word of God, most holy,
O wisdom from on high,
O Truth, unchanged, unchanging,
O light of earth's dark sky,
We bless Thee for the radiance
That from the hallowed page,
A lantern to our footsteps,
Shines on from age to age.

O Word of God the Father,
Thou art the gift divine,
And still thy light is lifted,
O'er all the lands to shine.
It is the chart and compass
To guide us to our Lord;
It is the heaven-drawn picture
Of Christ, the living Word.
