HYMN OF THE DAY #758 You Are the Way
You are the way; to you alone from sin and death we flee;
all those who search for God, you find and by your grace set free.
You are the truth; your word alone true wisdom can impart;
you only can inform the mind and purify the heart.
You are the life; the rending tomb proclaims your conqu’ring arm;
and those who put their trust in you not death nor hell shall harm.
You are the way, the truth, the life; grant us that way to know,
that truth to keep, that life to win, whose joys eternal flow.
SHARING OF THE PEACE
THE LORD’S PRAYER
HYMN #654 (vs. 1, 3, 5) The Church’s One Foundation
The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord;
she is his new creation by water and the word.
From heav’n he came and sought her to be his holy bride;
with his own blood he bought her and for her life he died.
Though with a scornful wonder this world sees her oppressed,
by schisms rent a sunder, by heresies distressed,
Yet saints their watch are keeping their cry goes up: “How long?”
And soon the night of weeping shall be the morn of song.
Yet she on earth has union with God, the Three in One,
And mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won.
Oh, blessed heav’nly chorus! Lord, save us by your grace.
That we, like saints before us, may see you face to face.
Go in peace. Serve the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
