+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

All who believe and are baptized shall see the Lord’s salvation;

Baptized into the death of Christ, they are a new creation;

Through Christ’s redemption they will stand among the glorious

Heavenly band of every tribe and nation.

+++++

With one accord, O God, we pray, grant us thy Holy Spirit;

Help us in our infirmity through Jesus’ blood and merit;

Grant us to grow in grace each day by holy Baptism,

That we may eternal life inherit.

1.  Praise to Thee and adoration,

Blessed Jesus, Son of God,

Who, to serve Thine own creation,

Didst partake of flesh and blood.

Teach me that I never may

From Thy fold or pastures stray,

But with zeal and joy exceeding

Follow where Thy steps are leading.

2.  Let me never, Lord, forsake Thee,

E’en tho’ bitter pain and strife

On my way shall overtake me;

But may I thro’ all my life

Walk in fervent love to Thee,

In all woes for comfort flee

To Thy birth, Thy death, and Passion

Till I see Thy full salvation.

How Fair the Church of Christ Shall Stand   2 comments

1.  How fair the Church of Christ shall stand,

A beacon in all the land,

When love and faith all hearts inspire,

And all unite in one desire

To be a fam’ly and agree

To live in peace and unity.

2.  ‘Tis all vain that you profess

The doctrines of the Church, unless

You live according to your creed,

And show your faith by word and deed.

Observe the rule:  To others do

As you would have them do to you.

3.  Resentment, hate, and cruel jest,

Must not be harbored in the breast

Where love and charity should dwell;

Then think and speak of others well,

Refrain from all that causes strife

And mars a truly Christian life.

4.  So let your tongue, your heart, and mind

Agree to banish ev’ry kind

Of malice, falsehood, and disguise,

And here on earth a paradise

Of peace and harmony maintain,

Where concord and good will shall reign.

5.  For God observes our thoughts and deeds,

The secrets of our heart He reads;

The wicked cannot be concealed,

Their evil ways shall be revealed,

He ev’ry true believer knows,

And love and grace on him bestows.

6.  My soul, be therefore of good cheer,

Though sinners threaten, scoff, and sneer,

Serenely on your way proceed,

Nor worldly strife and clamor heed,

For Jesus’ sake the cross you bear,

And soon with Him the crown shall wear.

7.  O gracious God, wilt Thou my heart

So fashion in each secret part,

That Thou be sanctified in me,

Till Thee in heav’n above I see,

Where holy, holy, holy Lord,

We sing to Thee with one accord.

1.  Lord Jesus Christ, receive me now,

As with a contrite heart I bow

Before Thine altar, blessed Lamb,

Who bore my sorrow, sin, and shame.

2.  I am today my Savior’s guest

Bethink, my soul, the honor blest,

That He, thy lord, will sup with thee,

And will Himself thy nurture be.

3.  To thee He offers with the bread

His body which for sin hast paid,

And with the wine, the precious blood,

He shed for thine eternal good.

4.  How this is done, I cannot tell,

He did not on its myst’ry dwell.

No mind the secret can perceive;

It is enough that I believe.

5.  Rejoice, then, O my soul, today,

That God’s anointed servant may

Extend to thee the gift most free,

Through which the Lord unites with thee.

6.  O Lord, I offer Thee my soul

To nourish, strengthen, and make whole.

Uphold me by Thy means of grace,

Until I see Thee face to face.

1.  O dearest Lord, receive from me

The heartfelt thanks I offer Thee,

Who thro’ Thy body and the Thy blood,

Hast wrought my soul’s eternal good.

2.  Break forth, my soul, in joy and praise,

What wealth is mine this day of days!

My Jesus dwells within my soul;

Let ev’ry tongue His grace extol.

1.  I come, invited by Thy word,

To kneel before Thine altar, Lord.

Receive me, then, and bid me stay

With Thee, the Life, the Truth, the Way.

2.  Oh, grant my soul the heav’nly food,

Thy blessed body and Thy blood.

Enrich me thro’ this means of grace

And make my heart Thy dwelling place.

3.  Forgive my sins, supply my need,

Forget, forget each wrongful deed.

Do Thou in love with me abide

And let Thy Spirit be my Guide.

1.  Softly now the day is ending,

Night o’er hill and vale descending;

I will kneel before Thee, Lord.

Unto Thee my thanks I render

That Thou didst, in mercy tender,

Life and peace to me accord.

2.  May Thy Church Thy peace inherit;

Guide our leaders by Thy Spirit;

Give our country strength and peace.

To the sinner, sad and dreary,

To each Christian, faint and weary,

Give Thou solace and surcease.

3.  Keep me, Jesus, while I slumber,

Free from perils without number;

Shield me, Master, in Thy might,

That, released from sin and sorrow,

I may sing this song tomorrow:

Jesus was my sun this night.
