THE BIBLE AND RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Leader:
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thy hand, and they shall he as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
Assembly:
Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
I will delight myself in thy statutes; I will not forget thy word.

Prayer (All uniting)
Our Heavenly Father, without whose help labor is useless, without whose light
search is vain, invigorate our studies and direct our inquiries, that by due
diligence and right discernment, we may establish ourselves and others in thy
holy faith. Let us not linger in ignorance, but enlighten and support us, for
the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Samuel Johnson

Open wide the window of our spirits, and fill us full of light; open wide the door
of our hearts, that we may receive and entertain thee with all our powers of
adoration and love. Amen. Christina Rossetti

Response

Let the Words of My Mouth
  Baumbach
 

Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord,my Strength and my Redeemer. A-men.

Leader: :Send out thy Light and thy Truth, let them lead me,
And let them bring me to thy holy hill.
God, then will I go unto thy altar,
On the harp we will praise thee, Lord our God!
