ORDER OF SERVICE

ORGAN PRELUDE

Andante .............. L. Van Beethoven

Larghetto .......... W. A. Mozart

PROCESSIONAL HYMN
(Congregation standing)
A mighty Fortress is our God,

A Bulwark never failing:

Our Helper He, amid the flood Of mortal ills prevailing:

For still our ancient foe Doth seek to work us woe;

His craft and pow'r are great.

And armed with cruel hate,

On earth is not his equal.

Did we in our own strength confide. Our striving would be losing;

Were not the right man on our side, The man of God's own choosing: Dost ask who that may be?

Christ Jesus, it is He!

Lord Sabaoth, His name,

From age to age the same;

And He must win the battle.

That word above all earthly powers, No thanks to them, abideth;

The Spirit and the gifts are ours, Through Him who with us sideth:

Let goods and kindred go,

This mortal life also;

The body they may kill.

God's truth abideth still;

His kingdom is forever. AMEN.

1.3.

Our Hope for years to come,Bears all its sons away;

Our Shelter from the stormy blast,They fly forgotten, as a dream

And our eternal Home.Dies at the opening day.
