(From the Violin Concerto Op. 64)
by Mendelssohn

Crown Him with Many Crowns
(VU 211)

Crown Him with many crowns,
Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns
All music but its own!
Awake, my soul and sing
Of Him Who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King
Through all eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of life,
Who triumphed o'er the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife
For those He came to save.
His glories now we sing,
Who died, and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring,
And lives that death may die.

Whose power a scepter sways
From pole to pole,
That wars may cease,
And all be prayer and praise.
His reign shall know no end,
And round his pierced feet
Fair flowers of paradise extend
Their fragrance ever sweet.

Crown him the Lord of peace,
Crown him the Lord of love;
Behold his hands and side,
Those wounds, yet visible above,
In beauty glorified.
All hail, Redeemer, hail!
For thou hast died for me;
Thy praise shall never, never fail
Throughout eternity.


Acts 1 veses 1-11

Would You Bless Our Homes and Families
(VU 556)

Would you bless our homes and families,
Source of life who calls us here;
in our world of stress and tension
teach us love that conquers fear.
Help us learn to love each other
with a love that constant stays;
teach us when we face our troubles,
love's expressed in many ways.

When our way is undemanding,
let us use the time that's ours
to delight in simple pleasures,
sharing joys in gentle hours.
When our way is anxious walking
and a heavy path we plod,
teach us trust in one another
and in you, our gracious God.

From the homes in which we're nurtured
with the love that shapes us there,
teach us, God, to claim as family
every one whose life we share.
And through all that life may offer,
may we in your love remain;
may the love we share in families
be alive to praise your name.

Let us reach beyond the boundaries
of our daily thought and care
till the family you have chosen
spills its love out everywhere.
Help us learn to love each other
with a love that constant stays;
teach us when we face our troubles,
love's expressed in many ways.

Anthem (sung in April of 2018):

I Waited For The Lord
Music by Felix Mendelssohn.

Picture from November of 2014 when Barbara Moffat and Elin Thordardottir
were featured soloists.

I waited for the Lord,
He inclined unto me,
He heard my complaint,
He heard my complaint.

(Words from Psalm 40)

Offering & Dedication

Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
In heaven above and earth below:
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Praise God, Creator, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, three-in-one:
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Sung Dedication

All the Way My Savior Leads Me
(VU 635)

All the way my Savior leads me,
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His tender mercy,
Who through life has been my Guide?
Heavenly peace, divinest comfort,
Here by faith in Him to dwell!
For I know, whate'er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well.

All the way my Savior leads me,
Cheers each winding path I tread,
Gives me grace for every trial,
Feeds me with the living Bread.
Though my weary steps may falter
And my soul athirst may be,
Gushing from the Rock before me,
Lo! A spring of joy I see.

All the way my Savior leads me,
Oh, the fullness of His love!
Perfect rest to me is promised
In my Father's house above.
When my spirit, clothed immortal,
Wings its flight to realms of day
This my song through endless ages:
"Jesus led me all the way!"

This is the day that God has made;
We will rejoice and be glad!
Singing hallelu, singing hallelu, singing hallelu!
We will rejoice and be glad!
Singing hallelu, singing hallelu, singing hallelu!
We will rejoice and be glad!

Allegretto in D
by S. Wesley

From "Twelve Short Pieces for Organ."

Samuel Wesley
1766 - 1837

I Need Thee Every Hour
(VU 671)

I need Thee every hour,
Most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine
Can peace afford.

I need Thee, Oh,I need Thee;
Evey hour I need Thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Savior,
I come to thee.

I need thee every hour,
Stay thou nearby;
Temptations lose their power
When thou art nigh.

Breathe on Me, Breath of God
(VU 382)

Breathe on me, breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what thou dost love,
And do what Thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until my will is one with thine.
To do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly Thine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.

And that about wraps up another week.

So, as old Roy Rogers was wont to sing:

"Happy trails to you,
Until we meet again.
Happy trails to you,
Keep smiling until then..."
