SOLO:  There is Sunshine in My Soul Today by John R. Sweney/arr. by Diane Bish; Maria Schafer, soprano

There is sunshine in my soul today, more glorious and bright than glows in any earthly sky, for Jesus is my Light.  On, there’s sunshine, blessed sunshine while the peaceful, happy moments roll.  When Jesus shows His smiling face, there is sunshine in my soul.  There is music in my soul today, a carol to my King; and Jesus, listening, can hear the songs I cannot sing.  There is gladness in my soul today, and hope and praise and love, for blessings which He gives me now, for joys laid up above. [Eliza E. Hewitt]

POSTLUDE:  Ukrainian National Anthem – “Ukraine’s Glory Hasn’t Perished” by Mykhaylo Verbytsky

Ukraine’s glory hasn’t perished, nor her freedom
Upon us, fellow compatriots, fate shall smile once more.
Our enemies will vanish, like dew in the morning sun,
And we too shall rule, brothers, in a free land of our own.
We’ll lay down our souls and bodies to attain our freedom,
And we’ll show that we, brothers, are of the Kozak nation.
We’ll lay down our souls and bodies to attain our freedom,
And we’ll show that we, brothers, are of the Kozak nation.
