Hymn of Praise

When in Our Music God Is Glorified

UMH 68, verses 1, 2, 3 & 5

Verse 1
When in our music God is glorified,
and adoration leaves no room for pride,
it is as though the whole creation cried

Verse 2
How often, making music, we have found
a new dimension in the world of sound,
as worship moved us to a more profound

Verse 3
So has the church in liturgy and song,
in faith and love, through centuries of wrong,
borne witness to the truth in every tongue,

Verse 5
Let every instrument be tuned for praise!
Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise!
And may God give us faith to sing always

Be Thou My Vision

UMH 451, all verses

Verse 1
Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me, save that thou art.
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Verse 2
Be thou my Wisdom, and thou my true Word;
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;
thou and thou only, first in my heart,
great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.

Verse 3
Great God of heaven, my victory won,
may I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Time of Prayer & Centering

with Pastor Jacob, (including a presentation by Evie Burke)

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Scripture Reading

with Sean Les

Matthew 22:34-40

34 When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, 35 and one of them, an expert in the law, asked him a question to test him. 36 “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 37 He said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Hymn of Parting

Higher Ground

by Johnson Oatman, Jr.

Verse 1
I’m pressing on the upward way,
new height I’m gaining ev’ry day;
still praying as I onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

Lord, lift me up and let me stand,
by faith, on heaven’s table land.
A higher plane than I have found;
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

Verse 2
My heart has no desire to stay
where doubts arise and fears dismay;
though some may dwell where these abound,
my prayer, my aim is higher ground


Verse 3
I want to live above the world,
though Satan’s darts at me are hurled;
for faith has caught the joyful sound,
the song of saints on higher ground.


Verse 4
I want to scale the utmost height
and catch a gleam of glory bright;
but still I’ll pray till heav’n I’ve found.
“Lord, lead me on to higher ground.”
