BENEDICTION

RESPONSE:  I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes by Leo Sowerby; Desiree Flores, alto solo

I will lift up mine eyes to the hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.  He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber.  Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.  My help cometh from the Lord; which made heaven and earth.  The Lord is thy keeper; thy shade upon thy right hand.  The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.  The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil, He shall preserve thy soul.  The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore. Amen.  [Psalm 121]

Thank you, Diane Donaldson, for the beautiful flowers that enhanced our worship service today.
