  • Hymn - Our God our help in ages past


OUR God, our help in ages past,
our hope for years to come,
our shelter from the stormy blast,
and our eternal home;

2 Under the shadow of Thy throne
Thy saints have dwelt secure;
sufficient is Thine arm alone,
and our defence is sure.

3 Before the hills in order stood,
or earth received her frame,
from everlasting Thou art God,
to endless years the same.

4 A thousand ages in Thy sight
are like an evening gone,
short as the watch that ends the night
before the rising sun.

5 Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
bears all its sons away;
they fly forgotten, as a dream
dies at the opening day.

6 Our God, our help in ages past,
our hope for years to come,
be Thou our guard while troubles last,
and our eternal home.


  • Bible Reading Psalm 90.


1 ¶  «A PRAYER OF MOSES, THE MAN OF GOD.»
 Lord, you have been our dwelling place
   in all generations.
2  Before the mountains were brought forth,
   or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
   from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
3  You return man to dust
   and say, "Return, O children of man!"
4  For a thousand years in your sight
   are but as yesterday when it is past,
   or as a watch in the night.
5  You sweep them away as with a flood; they are like a dream,
   like grass that is renewed in the morning:
6  in the morning it flourishes and is renewed;
   in the evening it fades and withers.
7 ¶  For we are brought to an end by your anger;
   by your wrath we are dismayed.
8  You have set our iniquities before you,
   our secret sins in the light of your presence.
9  For all our days pass away under your wrath;
   we bring our years to an end like a sigh.
10  The years of our life are seventy,
         or even by reason of strength eighty;
   yet their span is but toil and trouble;
         they are soon gone, and we fly away.
11  Who considers the power of your anger,
   and your wrath according to the fear of you?
12 ¶  So teach us to number our days
   that we may get a heart of wisdom.
13  Return, O LORD! How long?
   Have pity on your servants!
14  Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love,
   that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
15  Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
   and for as many years as we have seen evil.
16  Let your work be shown to your servants,
   and your glorious power to their children.
17  Let the favour of the Lord our God be upon us,
   and establish the work of our hands upon us;
   yes, establish the work of our hands!


  • Hymn - Take time to be holy


TAKE time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord;
Abide in Him always, and feed on His Word.
Make friends of God’s children, help those who are weak;
forgetting in nothing His blessing to seek.

2 Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret with Jesus alone.
Abiding in Jesus like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends, in thy conduct, His likeness shall see.

3 Take time to be holy, be calm in thy soul;
Each thought and each motive beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit through fountains of love,
Thou soon shall be fitted for service above.

  • Hymn - Jesus the very thought of thee


JESUS, the very thought of Thee
with sweetness fills my breast;
but sweeter far Thy face to see,
and in Thy presence rest.

2 Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame,
nor can the memory find
a sweeter sound than Thy blest name,
O Saviour of mankind!

3 O hope of every contrite heart,
O joy of all the meek,
to those who fall how kind Thou art!
How good to those who seek!

4 But what to those who find? Ah! this
nor tongue nor pen can show:
the love of Jesus, what it is
none but His loved ones know.

5 Jesus, our only joy be Thou,
as Thou our prize shall be;
Jesus, be Thou our glory now,
and through eternity.
