Hymn 345

Lucy M Goodenough, words
David Evans, music

Thou living light of pentecostal glory,
Lo, wide we fling the sunless prison doors;
Thy cleansing fire repeats its ancient story
To purge and hallow us, the splendor pours.

Perfect and pure, ineffable in beauty,
Thy stainless radiance e'en to us impart,
Till in reflection finding all our duty,
We see the glory shine from heart to heart.

So all shall see where Thine effulgence gloweth,
Through purer lives of men, a countless host,
So all shall learn how God Himself bestoweth
His priceless pearl of gifts, the Holy Ghost.

Tune Notes: Music from the Revised Church Hymnary

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 229

John Greenleaf Whittier, adapted, words
Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, arr., music

O Love divine, whose constant beam
Shines on the eyes that will not see,
And waits to bless us while we dream,
Nor leav'st us though we turn from Thee.
Nor bounds, nor clime, nor creed Thou know'st,
Wide as our need Thy favors fall;
The white wings of the Holy Ghost
Stoop unseen o'er the heads of all.

O Truth which sage and prophet saw,
Long sought without, but found within,
The rule of Love beyond all law,
The Life o'ercoming death and sin,
O shine on us with light which glowed
Upon the waiting shepherds' way,
Who saw the darkness overflowed
With tides of everlasting day.

Hymn 601

James R. Corbett, words
Ryan Vigil, music

With one accord in one place,
In joyful praise of God's grace,
We join together in one divine embrace.
A rushing mighty Spirit
Descends from heaven, hear it:
“I have touched your heart
And made whole your heart,
Now go walk in My light.”
All can hear of it,
Hearts revealing it,
Gently moved by Your might.

Of one accord, of one Mind,
Our healing mission we find.
We pray together—our lives in worship bind.
The Comforter is with us;
Its presence here assures us:
“I am guiding you
And uniting you
Through the love of God's Son.
I am blessing you;
I am healing you;
I am making you one.”
