Prelude 

Chant du soir by Marco Enrico Bossi
Devozione 

Hymn 388

James Montgomery, adapted, words
Jeremiah Clarke, harm. by M.M. Bridges, 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.

Reading

Reading 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 387

Isaac Watts, adapted, words
Thomas Turton, music

When Jesus our great Master came
To teach us in his Father's name,
In every act, in every thought,
He lived the precepts which he taught.

So let our lips and lives express
The holy gospel we profess;
So let our works and virtues shine,
To prove the doctrine all divine.

Thus shall we best proclaim abroad,
The honors of our Saviour, God,
When His salvation reigns within,
And grace subdues the claim of sin.

Hymn 526

Violet Hay, alt., words
German melody, Geistliche Kirchengesäng, 1623;
harm. and arr. Ralph Vaughan Williams, music

Lo! as we follow after good,
We find God's word is understood,
So we prove Him,
Praise and prove Him!
Through us He does perform His will,
To us His promises fulfil,
For we love Him!
Praise and love Him!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

O you to whom God's word is shown,
Make all His promises your own,
Rise and prove Him,
Praise and prove Him!
His mighty love and holy power
Are here to bless us every hour,
Let us love Him!
Praise and love Him!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
