Sing to the Lord of Light and Love

A noble song of praise;
Sing with rejoicing hosts above,

The joy that fills our days!

The travail of the world is long,

And long the blight of sin;
But Love, Almighty Love is strong,

And Love at last shall win!

His light outshining sun and star,

Outlasting Earth and Time,
Shall banish error's night afar

And bring the day sublime.

His love in triumph onward flows

As flows the mighty sea;
Victorious over all His foes,
Filling eternity!





Heavenly Father, in whom we live, and move, and have our being, help us always to remember that Thou art the Vine and we are the branches; and that as the branch cannot live apart from the vine,

except we abide in Thee. Strengthen us, we beseech Thee, by Thy Spirit in the inner man, that we may be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Help us to have the same mind in us that was in Christ. Teach us to love as Thou dost love. Amen.



It was only a drop of dew
That watered the heart of a rose;
But the rose bloomed out her gracious span,
A thing of beauty and praise for man,
In her fragrant garden close.

It was only the song of a bird
By her nest in the spreading tree;
But the song that burst from the tiny breast
Dispelled the gloom of a heart oppressed,
And set new gladness free.

It was only a tender thought
Of the Father's love and power;
But a heart with pain and woe oppressed
Through that loving thought found strength and rest,
And was healed that very hour.


Our Father, we would thank Thee for this day when the whirling wheels of the factories and the roar of commerce are stilled and man turns aside to talk with Thee as friend with friend. In the holy hush of this Sabbath day, hinting of rest, as rest hints of heaven, may we rise into the dignity of the sons of God, and realize that no life, howsoever limited in its settings, is without its angel which doth ever behold the face of the Father which is in Heaven. May we see, then, the glorious possibilities of our seemingly obscure lives, and by faithfulness to the little we can do, may we glorify Thee.
