*SONG OF PRAISE
“Victory in Jesus” UMH #370 (vs 1,3)

Vs. 1: I heard an old, old story, how a Savior came from glory, how he gave his life on Calvary to save a wretch like me; I heard about his groaning, of his precious blood’s atoning, then I repented of my sins and won the victory.

Refrain: O victory in Jesus, my Savior forever! He sought me and bought me with his redeeming blood; he loved me ere I knew him, and all my love is due him; he plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood.

Vs. 3: I heard a-bout a mansion he has built for me in glory, and I heard about the streets of gold beyond the crystal sea; about the angels singing and the old redemption story, and some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.
Repeat Refrain

THE SCRIPTURE READING Brad Banner Psalm 23

*SONG OF PRAISE

“Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah” UMH #127 (vs 1,3)

Vs. 1: Guide me, O thou great Je-ho-vah, pil-grim through this bar-ren land. I am weak, but thou art might-y; hold me with thy power-ful hand. Bread of heav-en, feed me till I want no more; feed me till I want no more.

Vs 3: When I tread the verge of Jor-dan, bid my anx-ious fears sub-side; death of death and hell’s de-struc-tion, land me safe on Ca-naan’s side. Songs of prais-es, songs of prais-es, I will ev-er give to thee; I will ev-er give to thee.
