Voluntary on Willingham (Hymn 359)

Hymn 359

William P. McKenzie, words
Franz Abt, music

Trust the Eternal when the shadows gather,
When joys of daylight seem so like a dream;
God the unchanging pities like a father;
Trust on and wait, the daystar yet shall gleam.

Trust the Eternal, for the clouds that vanish
No more can move the mountains from their base
Than sin’s illusive wreaths of mist can banish
Light from His throne or loving from His face.

Trust the Eternal, and repent in meekness
Of that heart’s pride which frowns and will not
yield,
Then to thy child-heart shall come strength in weakness,
And thine immortal life shall be revealed.

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 76

Johannes Heermann from the swedish translation of Jakob Boëthius and Johan O. Wallin, adapted, words
Per U. Stenhammar, music

God is known in loving-kindness,
God, the true, eternal good;
Zion, ne’er will He forsake thee,
Trust His Father-Motherhood.
Can a mother leave her children?
Can unchanging Love forget?
Though all earthly friends betray thee,
Lo, His arm enfolds thee yet.

Every prayer to Him is answered,
Prayer confiding in His will;
Blessedness and joy are near thee,
Hear His gentle Peace, be still.
Hear His voice above the tempest:
I have not forsaken thee;
In My hand thy name is graven,
I will save both thine and thee.

Hymn 469

Oak E. Davis, adapt., words
Jean Sibelius; transc. CSPS, music

Eternal God, the Cause of all creation,
Your goodness shines through all eternity.
From age to age Your name has been exalted,
Your glory fills the earth, the sky, and sea.
Almighty One, creative Mind, our Maker,
Which was, and is, and evermore shall be.

Dear God of love, eternal Father-Mother,
Supply our need, our every need each day;
Teach us to love the way You love Your children,
Purge us from sin and self, with trust we pray:
“Thy kingdom come,” in all earth as in heaven,
You are our light, our guide, our hope, our stay.

Your Word of truth is ever our companion;
We are assured Your healing love is here.
Help us to prove, as Jesus proved before us,
Truth casts out sin, disease, and death, and fear.
And may Your Word abide with us forever,
O Lord of life, of truth, and love, most dear.
