Psalm 8

Christ My Refuge

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.

Author: Mary Baker Eddy (1868)
Composer: Brett L Allen

The Lord’s Prayer

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 for ever.

Text: Matthew 6: 9(Our)-13 (KJV) with added Amens
Composer: Brett L Allen

Communion Hymn

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.

Author: Mary Baker Eddy (1885)

Feed My Sheep

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.

Author: Mary Baker Eddy (1885)
Composer: Brett L Allen

The Mother’s Evening Prayer

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.

Author: Mary Baker Eddy (1893)
Composer: Brett L Allen


It matters not what be thy lot,
So Love doth guide;
For storm or shine, pure peace is thine,
Whate’re betide.

And of these stones, or tyrants’ thrones,
God able is
To raise up seed — in thought and deed —
To faithful His.

Aye, darkling sense, arise, go hence!
Our God is good.
False fears are foes — truth tatters those,
When understood.

Love looseth thee, and lifteth me,
Ayont hate’s thrall:
There Life is light, and wisdom might,
And God is All.

The centuries break, the earth-bound wake,
God’s glorified!
Who doth His will — His likeness still —
Is satisfied.

Author: Mary Baker Eddy (1900)
Composer: Brett L Allen

Psalm 8

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the
stars which thou hast ordained;

What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man that thou
visiteth him?

For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him
with glory and honour.

Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast
put all things under his feet:

O Lord our Lord how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Text: Psalm 8:1 (to !), 3-6, 9
