THE LORD’S PRAYER

Our Father in heaven, holy is Your Name,

Your Kingdom come; Your will be done

on earth as in heaven.  Give us this day

our daily bread and forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us away from the time of trial

and deliver us from evil for the Kingdom, 

the power, and the glory are Yours, 

now and forever.  Amen!

 

EVENING HYMN

All Praise to Our Redeeming Lord

Sir Charles Wesley

 

All praise to our redeeming Lord,

who joins us by His grace

And bids us, each to each restored, 

together seek His face.

 

We all partake the joy of one; 

the common peace we feel;

A peace to sensual minds unknown, 

a joy unspeakable.

 

And if our fellowship below

in Jesus be so sweet, 

what greater blessings shall we know

when round His throne we meet?

 

BENEDICTION

Father, in You we rest from the cares of this day.  Mercifully grant that even at rest we might glorify You in all things.  Through Christ the Lord, we pray.  Amen!
