Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on Earth as it is
in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive
us our debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the
kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

MUSICAL OFFERING The Master Has Come


Join in singing ASH GROVE / arr. Joseph Martin (b. 1959)
the final verse, as directed. Sanctuary Choir and Congregation
The Master has called us in life’s early morning,
with spirits as fresh as the dew on the sod.
We turn from the world, with its smiles and
its scorning, to cast in our lot with the people of God.
The Master has called us His sons and His daughters.
We pray for His blessing and trust in his love.
And through the green pastures, beside the still waters,
He’ll lead us at last to His kingdom above.
