INTROIT: Psalm 100 (Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord) by Robert A. Hobby

Make a joyful noise to the Lord! Make a joyful noise, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness, and come before God’s presence with a song! Know that the Lord is God, our Creator, to whom we belong; we are God’s people, and the sheep of God’s pasture. Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving, and into the courts with praise! Give thanks to God, and bless God’s name! For the Lord is good, whose steadfast love is everlasting, and whose faithfulness endures from age to age. Make a joyful noise to the Lord! [Psalm 100]

ANTHEM:  Blessed Be the God and Father by Samuel Sebastian Wesley

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which, according to His abundant mercy, hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.  To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.  See that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently, see that ye love one another.  Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God.  For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth and the flower thereof falleth away.  But the word of the Lord endureth forever, forevermore. Amen.  [I Peter 1:3-5, 22-25]
