INTROIT: Children, Go Where I Send Thee Traditional Spiritual/arr. by Ryan Murphy
Children, go where I send thee, how shall I send thee? I’m gonna send thee one by one, one for the little bitty Baby, lyin’ in a manger, He was born, born, born in Bethlehem. Children, go where I send thee, how shall I send thee? I’m gonna send thee two by two, two for Paul and Silas, one for the little bitty Baby. I’m gonna send thee three by three, three for the Hebrew children, two for Paul and Silas, one for the little bitty Baby. And there was seven for the seven that all went up to heaven, and six for the days when the world was fixed, and there was five for the five that all stayed alive, and four for the four that stood at the door. I’m gonna send thee eight by eight, eight for the eight the flood couldn’t take. Nine for the angel choirs divine, ten for the ten commandments. ‘Leven of ‘em singin’ in heaven, twelve for the twelve apostles, children, go!
SCRIPTURE LESSON: Isaiah 6:1-5
ANTHEM: In the Year that King Uzziah Died by David McK Williams
In the year that king Uzziah died, I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.” And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, “Woe is me! For I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.” [Isaiah 6:1-5]
