The Lord’s Prayer
Words from the Bible
Music by Albert Hay Malotte

Our Father, which art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil:
for thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory, forever,

Feed My Sheep
Words by Mary Baker Eddy
Music by Katrina Wylie

Shepherd, show me how to go
O’er the hillside steep,
How to gather, how to sow,
How to feed Thy sheep;
I will listen for Thy voice,
Lest my footsteps stray;
I will follow and rejoice
All the rugged way.

Thou wilt bind the stubborn will,
Wound the callous breast,
Make self-righteousness be still,
Break earth’s stupid rest.
Strangers on a barren shore,
Lab’ring long and lone,
We would enter by the door,
And Thou know’st Thine own;

So, when day grows dark and cold,
Tear or triumph harms,
Lead Thy lambkins to the fold,
Take them in Thine arms;
Feed the hungry, heal the heart,
Till the morning’s beam;
White as wool, ere they depart,
Shepherd, wash them clean.

Christ My Refuge
Words by Mary Baker Eddy
Music by Frederic Root

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.

O Lord Most Holy
Words by Frank La Forge
Music by Cesar Franck

O Lord most holy, O Lord most mighty
O loving Father Thee we will praise alway.

Help us to know Thee, know Thee and love Thee,
Father, father, grant us Thy truth and grace.
Father, father, guide and defend us.

Keep Thou our humble hearts,
Lead Thou our wandering thoughts.
In all our trials let us find our help in Thee.

And in temptations hour,
Saved through Thy mighty power,
Thine aid O send us hear us in mercy.
Show us salvation so shall we live and sing praise to Thee.

Comfort Ye
Words from the Bible
Music by George Frederic Handel

Comfort ye, comfort ye My people,
Comfort ye, comfort ye My people,
Saith your God, saith your God.
Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem,
Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem,
And cry unto her, that her warfare,
Her warfare is accomplished,
That her iniquity is pardoned,
That her iniquity is pardoned.

Love Never Faileth
Words from the Bible
Music by Frederic Root

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love,
I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
And tho’ I have the gift of prophesy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge,
And tho’ I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing.
Love never faileth, Love never faileth,
But whether there be prophesies they shall fail,
Whether there be tongues they shall cease,
Whether there be knowledge,
Whether there be knowledge it shall vanish away.
Love never faileth, Love never faileth.
Love suff’reth long and is kind,
Love envieth not, vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own,
Is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil,
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth.
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things,
Love never faileth, Love never faileth.

Mother’s Evening Prayer
Words by Mary Baker Eddy
Music by Henry Palkes

O gentle presence, peace and joy and power;
O Life divine, that owns each waiting hour,
Thou Love that guards the nestling’s faltering flight!
Keep Thou my child on upward wing tonight.

Love is our refuge; only with mine eye
Can I behold the snare, the pit, the fall:
His habitation high is here, and nigh,
His arm encircles me, and mine, and all.

O make me glad for every scalding tear,
For hope deferred, ingratitude, disdain!
Wait, and love more for every hate, and fear
No ill,—since God is good, and loss is gain.

Beneath the shadow of His mighty wing;
In that sweet secret of the narrow way,
Seeking and finding, with the angels sing:
“Lo, I am with you alway,”—watch and pray.

No snare, no fowler, pestilence or pain;
No night drops down upon the troubled breast,
When heaven’s aftersmile earth’s tear-drops gain,
And mother finds her home and heav’nly rest.

Words by Mary Baker Eddy
Music by Nan Butcher

Brood o’er us with Thy shelt’ring wing,
‘Neath which our spirits blend
Like brother birds, that soar and sing,
And on the same branch bend.
The arrow that doth wound the dove
Darts not from those who watch and love.

If thou the bending reed wouldst break
By thought or word unkind,
Pray that his spirit you partake,
Who loved and healed mankind:
Seek holy thoughts and heavenly strain,
That make men one in love remain.

Learn, too, that wisdom’s rod is given
For faith to kiss, and know;
That greetings glorious from high heaven,
Whence joys supernal flow,
Come from that Love, divinely near,
Which chastens pride and earth-born fear,

Through God, who gave that word of might
Which swelled creation’s lay:
“Let there be light, and there was light.”
What chased the clouds away?
‘Twas Love whose finger traced aloud
A bow of promise on the cloud.

Thou to whose power our hope we give,
Free us from human strife.
Fed by Thy love divine we live,
For Love alone is Life;
And life most sweet, as heart to heart
Speaks kindly when we meet and part.

The Prodigal Son
Words by William Aubert Luce
Music by Martin Broones

Come home to the Father
And open the door,
Come home to the Father,
And wander no more.

O pilgrim and stranger,
No more shall you roam,
The Father is calling
The prodigal home

Come home to your mansions,
Come home to your lands,
The lamps have lighted
By welcoming hands.

The riotous living,
The greed and the gold,
Betrayed you, and left you
In famine and cold.

O traveler, throw off
Your garment dreams,
The fears and failures,
The heartaches and schemes.

The father will give you
A robe and a ring,
A banquet of gladness,
A sweet song to sing.

O lift up the latchkey
And open the door.
Come home to the Father
And wander no more.

Sit down at the table
Prepared from above,
A feast overflowing
With mercy and love.

No punishment threatens
The sorrowing son,
When sin is forsaken,
Forgiveness is won,

From valleys of darkness
Where prodigals roam,
O penitent brother,
Rise up and come home.

Regrets cannot haunt you,
No past can pursue,
The stars of salvation
Will shine over you.
O lift up the latchkey
And open the door.
Come home to the Father
And wander no more.
Come home to the Father
And wander no more.

23rd Psalm
Words and Music by Bobby McFerrin

The Lord is my Shepard, I have all I need
She makes me lie down in green meadows
Beside the still waters, She will lead

She restores my soul, She rights my wrongs
She leads me in a path of good things
And fills my heart with songs

Even though I walk, through a dark and dreary land
There is nothing that can shake me
She has said She won’t forsake me
I’m in her hand

She sets a table before me, in the presence of my foes
She anoints my head with oil
And my cup overflows

Surely, surely goodness and kindness will follow me
All the days of my life
And I will live in her house
Forever, forever and ever

The Lord Bless You and Keep You
Words and Music by John Rutter

The Lord bless you and keep you:
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
To shine upon you and be gracious, and be gracious unto you

The Lord bless you and keep you:
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
To shine upon you and be gracious, and be gracious unto you

The Lord lift up the light
Of His countenance upon you,
The Lord lift up the light
Of His countenance upon you,

And give you peace,
And give you peace,
And give you peace,
And give you peace
