How Great Thou Art
Music by Stuart Hine
Lyrics adapted by Carolyn Kardinal

O, Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the works Thy hands have made.
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, in praise, my God, to Thee.
How great thou art. How great thou art.
Then sings my soul, in praise, my God, to Thee.
How great thou art. How great thou art.

I lift my voice in grateful acclamation
That Thou maintain the universe and man,
That each idea throughout Thy vast creation
Reflects the light of Thy unfolding plan.


I touch the Christ. Suddenly I see clearly
That all is held in perfect harmony.
Thy changeless Truth I’ve come to trust so dearly
Reveals Thy Love and pure reality.

Sons of God
Music and Lyrics by Carolyn Kardinal

Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed
That we should be called the sons of God.

This is Love’s sweet inspiration, unfolding God’s eternal plan
“Joint heirs with Christ” is the revelation that gives dominion unto man.

This precious blessing brings peace and healing.
As we put off the old man and put on the new.

We rejoice in the newness of being.
As we partake of His love, Spirit forms us anew.


Beloved now are we sons of God,
And it doth not yet appear what we shall be,
But having this hope we purify ourselves,
To become as pure as He.

Thus God will bless the pure in heart, who strive to live righteously,
and we shall see Him as He is for sons of God are we.


Christ My Refuge
Music by Katrina Wylie
Words by Mary Baker Eddy

O’er waiting harpstrings of the mind there sweeps a strain,
Low, sad, and sweet, whose measures bind the power of pain,

And wake a white-winged angel throng of thoughts, illumed
By faith, and breathed in raptured song, with love perfumed.

Then His unveiled, sweet mercies show Life’s burdens light.
I kiss the cross, and wake to know a world more bright.

And o’er earth’s troubled, angry sea I see Christ walk,
And come to me, and tenderly, Divinely talk.

Thus Truth engrounds me on the rock, upon Life’s shore,
‘Gainst which the winds and waves can shock, oh, nevermore!

From tired joy and grief afar, and nearer Thee, —
Father, where Thine own children are, I love to be.

My prayer, some daily good to do to Thine, for Thee;
An offering pure of Love, whereto God leadeth me.

God So Loved the World
Composed by George Frideric Handel
Lyrics from the Bible

Jesus lifted up his eyes to heaven, and prayed for his disciples, and prayed for his disciples.
That they might know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent,
This is life eternal, life eternal.

God so loved the world, God so loved the world,
That he gave his only begotten son, gave His only begotten son.
God so loved the world, That he gave his only son,
Gave His only begotten son.

That whoso believeth, believeth in him
Should not, should no perish,
But have everlasting life, everlasting life.

The Garment
Music and Words by Carolyn Kardinal

She humbly came behind Him, jostled by the crushing mass.
She knew if she could touch Him, her healing would come to pass.

Desperately she reached out to touch the garment’s hem,
To partake of the anointing of Christ whom God had sent.

As her hand reached out and brushed the cloth, Jesus perceived her troubled soul,
And he gently spoke, “Be of good comfort. Thy faith hath made thee whole.”

Tears of relief and joy flowed from her grateful eyes.
In that instant she was healed, for Truth could not be disguised!

She went her way rejoicing, no longer enslaved, but free.
Just as the blind man had been healed, now she, too, could see.

From this pilgrim’s story comes hope for all who are oppressed.
If we may but touch the garment of Truth, we, too, shall be blessed.

Music and Lyrics by Carolyn Kardinal

And after six days he taketh Peter, James, and John
Up into a high mountain apart
And was transfigured before them,
And his face did shine like the sun
And his raiment was white as the light.

As they knelt and prayed on holy ground,
A cloud descended like a misty shroud,
And a voice spoke from deep within,
“This is my beloved son. Hear ye him.”

They heard, and they bore witness to the light
That saves all mankind and leads out of night.
For it’s Christ’s mighty power that takes the dark away
Revealing the light of unending day.

He was transfigured. They caught a glimpse of immortality,
He proved that matter is just a mockery.
He was transfigured giving hope to all mankind.
That man might know the reign of eternal Mind.

They learned that man’s perfect being is in Mind’s control
And man in Life’s springtime expresses Soul.
So we each must go to the mountain to pray,
To be one in Spirit, let Christ lead the way.

Thine Is the Greatness
Music by Lamont Galbraith
Lyrics from the Bible

Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power,
And the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:
Therefore, O Lord, we praise Thy name,
Therefore, O Lord we praise Thy name.

Thine is the kingdom, the kingdom, O Lord,
And Thou art exalted as head above all.
Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power,
And the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:

For Thou has been a shelter for me,
And a strong tower, and a strong tower
From the enemy, the enemy.
I will abide in Thy tabernacle forever,
I will trust in the covert of Thy wings.

Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power,
And the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:
Therefore, O Lord, we praise Thy name,
Therefore, O Lord we praise Thy name.

Thine is the kingdom, the kingdom, O Lord,
And Thou art exalted as head above all.
Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power,
And the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:

The glory, the victory, and the majesty!

The Healing of Jairus’ Daughter
Music and Lyrics by Carolyn Kardinal

“I’ve heard of this man they call Jesus,” she said.
“He heals multitudes, they say.
He even healed the blind man.
Seems like only yesterday.
Oh, Jairus, you must help our daughter.
You must go down to the sea
And ask Jesus, to come here.
Our daughter’s life is in jeopardy.

If he holds the power of healing in the palm of his hand,
Then Jesus is the Son of God, not an ordinary man.”

So Jairus went from his mansion
And found Jesus amidst the throng.
He humbled himself and worshiped him,
But he had waited too long.
A servant came down to tell him,
His only daughter was dead.
“Trouble not the Master” is what the servant said.

“Be not afraid. Only believe.” Jesus said,
But the crowd continued to mourn.
“She is not dead, but sleepeth.”
And they all laughed him to scorn.
Then He put them all out, with all their doubt,
And said, “Damsel, arise.”
As the Master talked she stood and walked,
Right before their eyes.


Trust in the Lord to redeem mankind
And destroy death’s evidence.
“Be not afraid. Only believe.”
He’s our refuge and defense.
For in his light shall we see light.
Christ is the Light of the World.
He proved God’s ever present power,
By healing a twelve year old girl.


Communion Hymn
Music by Carolyn Kardinal
Words by Mary Baker Eddy

Saw ye my Saviour? Heard ye the glad sound?
Felt ye the power of the Word?
‘Twas the Truth that made us free,
And was found by you and me
In the life and the love of our Lord.

Mourner, it calls you, “Come to my bosom,
Love wipes your tears all away,
And will lift the shade of gloom,
And for you make radiant room
Midst the glories of one endless day.”

Sinner, it calls you, “Come to this fountain,
Cleanse the foul senses within;
‘Tis the Spirit that makes pure,
That exalts thee, and will cure
All thy sorrow and sickness and sin.”

Strongest deliverer, friend of the friendless,
Life of all being divine:
Thou the Christ, and not the creed;
Thou the Truth in thought and deed;
Thou the water, the bread, and the wine.

Music and Lyrics by Carolyn Kardinal

In dens where roaring lions shred peace and harmony
With false accusations like the ancient Pharisees,
In the midst of condemnation, Christ defeats the guilty plea.
He silences the accuser and gives you victory.

Rise in the strength of the spirit. Resist the enemy.
Christ comes again as in ancient days to set the captives free.
Arise, shine, O child of God. Lift up your eyes to see
His power and glory as He gives you victory.

If your faith is tried by fire and thought, deceived by pain,
If you’re cast into the furnace when you won’t kneel to evil’s claim,
Turn to Him, you’re not alone, He walks with you today,
Even though you may see no way out, He always shows the way.


When Goliath comes against you in the war of rage and hate,
Our loving God protects you and seals the accuser’s fate.
You can not be a target if He is at your side.
Just one smooth stone of truth kill the giant lie.

Trust in Him, be not afraid, the battle is not your fight.
Set yourself. Bear witness the glory of His might!


Raising of Lazarus
Music by Clement Barker
Lyrics from the Bible

Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, The town of Mary and her sister Martha.
When Jesus heard that, he said, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God
That the Son of God might be glorified thereby, might be glorified thereby.”

Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.
Then said Martha unto Jesus, “Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou will ask of God, God will give it thee.
Jesus said unto her, “I am the resurrection and the life:
He that believeth in me Though he were dead, yet shall he live:
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.”

Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid.
And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said. “Father, I thank Thee, that Thou hast hear me.
And I knew that Thou hearest me always:
But because of the people that stand by I said it,
That they may believe that Thou hast sent me.”

And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.”
And he that was dead came forth.
Jesus saith unto them, “Loose him, loose him, and let him go.”

Where the Spirit of the Lord Is
Music and Lyrics by Carolyn Kardinal

In the stillness of the morning before the break of day,
I come to God on bended knee to silently watch and pray.
Lord, let Thy Spirit lead me and teach me of Thy ways.
Let me walk worthy of Thee. Let this be a holy day.

In the light that shines around me, no shadows can appear.
If I humbly walk in the Spirit, no danger shall I fear.
Sin and death have no power. Spirit fills me with God’s might.
God guides me and guards me. I am safe in Spirit’s light.

O fill me with Thy Spirit. Open my eyes that I may see.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

I commune with the Father, and await His soft reply.
The still, small voice of Spirit is here and ever nigh.
My thought hears His whisper, directing from above.
In the inspiration of Spirit, I feel God’s ever present Love.

In Him is no condemnation. Forgiveness is the key
That unlocks all His blessings. His Truth sets man free!
His Spirit is steadfast and watches over me.
“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”


In the End of the Sabbath
Music by Oley Speaks
Words from the Bible

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn,
Came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher,
To see the sepulcher, as it began to dawn.

And, behold, there was a great earthquake; And, behold, there was a great earthquake:
For the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

And the angel answered and said unto the women:
Fear not ye, fear not ye, for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
Fear not ye, fear not ye, for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

He is not here: for he is risen;
He is not here, he is not here.
Fear not ye, fear not ye.
For he is risen, is risen;
Fear not, he is risen.
