Prelude

Voluntary on Meirionydd (Hymn 313)

Hymn 313

William Cowper, adapted, words
William Lloyd, music

Sometimes a light surprises
The Christian while he sings;
It is the Lord who rises
With healing in his wings.
When comfort seems declining,
There comes to us again
A season of clear shining,
To cheer us after rain.

In holy contemplation
We sweetly then pursue
The theme of God's salvation,
And find it ever new.
To God, in light abiding,
True praise shall tune my voice,
For while in Him confiding,
I cannot but rejoice.

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 346

John Marriott*, words
Arr. from Felice de Giardini, music

Thou whose almighty Word
Chaos and darkness heard,
And took their flight;
Hear us, we humbly pray,
And where the Gospel-day
Sheds not its glorious ray,
Let there be light.

Christ, thou dost come to bring
On thy redeeming wing
Healing and sight,
Health to the sick in mind,
Sight to the inly blind;
Ah, now to all mankind
Let there be light.

Spirit of truth and love,
Life-giving, holy dove,
Speed forth thy flight;
Move on the waters' face,
Bearing the lamp of grace,
And in earth's darkest place
Let there be light.

Hymn 392

Laura C. Nourse, words
Arthur S. Sullivan, music

With love and peace and joy supreme
We hail the new appearing;
From out the darkness and the dream,
The haven of rest is nearing.

With gifts of healing in his wings
To light the Christ now guides us,
The heart that knows him burns and sings,
For endless joy betides us.

His touch the door of Life unseals
And bids us freely enter,
His word the heaven of heavens reveals
With Love its bound and center.

For God is all, and Christ the way;
Our meek and bold defender
Has cleft the night and lo, the day
Bursts forth in mighty splendor.
