Bryan Ashley, Organist
Sheep May Safely Graze (arr. E. Power Biggs), by Johann Sebastian Bach
Psalm Prelude (Hymn 46), by Robert Hebble
Charles H. Barlow, words
William Knapp, music
Why search the future and the past?
Why do ye look with tearful eyes
And seek far off for paradise?
Before your feet Life's pearl is cast.
As deathless as His spirit free,
The Perfect lives and works today
As in the ancient prophets' lay,
Where there's an open eye to see.
Of all that was and is to come
The present holds the Mind and Cause;
For God lives in eternal laws,
And here today upholds His throne.
Then rise and greet the signs that prove
Unreal the ages' long lament;
The "one far-off divine event"
Is now, and that event is Love.
Josiah Conder, words
Arr. from Louis M. Gottschalk, music
Day by day the manna fell:
O, to learn this lesson well.
Still by constant mercy fed,
Give me, Lord, my daily bread.
Day by day the promise reads,
Daily strength for daily needs:
Cast foreboding fears away;
Take the manna of today.
Lord, my times are in Thy hand:
All my sanguine hopes have planned,
To Thy wisdom I resign,
And would mold my will to Thine.
Thou my daily task shalt give;
Day by day to Thee I live;
So shall added years fulfill
Not my own, my Father's will.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer; Eng. tr. and adapt. CSPS, words
Otto Abel; arr. CSPS, music
We're steadfastly protected by Your power,
Encircled in the caring arms of Love.
Together, we are sharing all our days now,
And year by year come blessings from above.
We're each held safe by God's own holy power.
Whatever comes, Your comfort is at hand.
You're at our side at evening and at morning,
And each new day unfolds as You have planned.
Your pure and quiet love spreads o'er us deeply;
We know Your fullness now and feel Your peace.
For Your one holy world of grace and power,
We all praise You with joy that will not cease.
