The Invocation and Responsive Reading of Psalm 86 v 1-10

P: Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me,

C: For I am poor and needy.

P: Preserve my life, for I am godly;

C: Save your servant, who trusts in you—you are my God.

P: Be gracious to me, O Lord,

C: For to you do I cry all the day.

P: Gladden the soul of your servant,

C: For to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

P: For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,

C: Abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.

P: Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;

C: Listen to my plea for grace.

P: In the day of my trouble I call upon you,

C: For you answer me.

P: There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,

C: Nor are there any works like yours.

P: All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord,

C: And shall glorify your name.

P: For you are great and do wondrous things;

C:  You alone are God.

Hymn 31 (V 1-2, 5) – “When All Thy Mercies, O My God

When all Thy mercies, O my God,  My rising soul surveys,
Transported with the view, I’m lost  In wonder, love, and praise.

Ten thousand thousand precious gifts  My daily thanks employ;
Nor is the least a cheerful heart  That tastes those gifts with joy.

Through all eternity to Thee  A joyful song I’ll raise;
But, oh!  eternity’s too short  To utter all Thy praise!

The Absolution

The Apostles Creed (Page 12 in Hymnal)

I believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.

and uphold me with Thy free spirit. Amen.
