God Save the King

Hymn

O God! our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home:

Under the shadow of thy throne.
Still may we dwell secure:
Sufficient is thine arm alone.
And our defence is sure.

Before the hills in order stood,
Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting thou art God.
To endless years the same.

Time, like an ever-rolling stream.
Bears all its sons away:
They fly forgotten, as a dream
Dies at the opening day.

O God! our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come.
Be thou our guard while life shall last,
And our perpetual home.

Rev. Mr Brace

Minister—Humble yourselves therefore under the Hand of Almighty God.

People—God is our Refuge and Strength, a very present life in trouble, therefore will not we fear.

Minister—Give the King thy Judgments and thy Righteousness unto the King's son.

People—He shall judge thy people with righteousness and thy poor with judgment. He shall judge the poor of the people and shall save the children of the needy.

Minister—Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth.

People—Thy way Oh God is in the sanctuary: Who is so great a God as our God? Thou art the God that doest wonders; Thou hast declared thy strength among the people.

Minister—I am the Resurrection and the Life, saith the Lord. He that believeth in me though he were dead yet shall he live and whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Since by Man came Death, by man came also the resurrection from the dead, for as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all he made alive, but every man in his own order, Christ the first fruits. Afterwards there that are Christ's at His coming.

People—Oh Death where is thy sting, or Grave where is thy victory?

Minister—The sting of Death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law, but thanks be to God who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Wherefore my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.

Hymn

The Lord's my Shepherd, I'll not want,
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; he leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

My soul he doth restore again,
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness.
Even for his own name's sake.

Yea, though I walk in death's dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ill;
For thou art with me, and thy rod
And staff me comfort still.

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me,
And in God's house for evermore
My dwelling-place shall be.

Hymn

Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure,
Save from wrath and make me pure.

Could my tears for ever flow,
Could my tears no langour know,
These for sin could not atone:
Thou must save and thou alone:
In my hands no price I bring,
Simply to thy cross I cling.

While I draw this fleeting breath,
When my eyes shall close in death,
When I rise to worlds unknown,
And behold thee on thine throne,
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in thee.

Prayer and Benediction
