O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands: serve the Lord with gladness, and come before his presence with a song.  Be ye sure that the Lord he is God; it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.  O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him and speak good of his Name.  For the Lord is gracious, his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth from generation to generation.  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. [Based on Psalm 100]

ANTHEM:  For the Music of Creation by C.H.H. Parry/arr. Lloyd Larson

For the music of creation, for the song your Spirit sings, for your sound’s divine expression, burst of joy in living things: God, our God, the world’s composer, hear us, echoes of your voice; music is your art, your glory, let the human heart rejoice!  Psalms and symphonies exalt you, drum and trumpet, string and reed, simple melodies acclaim you, tunes that rise from deepest need, hymns of longing and belonging, carols from a cheerful throat, lilt of lullaby and love song catching heaven in a note.  All the voices of the ages in transcendent chorus meet, worship lifting up the senses, hands that praise, and dancing feet; over discord and division music speaks your joy and peace, harmony of earth and heaven, song of God that cannot cease!  Music is your art, your glory, let the human heart rejoice! [Shirley Erena Murray]

PRAYER

HYMN:  For All the Saints [Sine Nomine]

BENEDICTION

RESPONSE:  Rejoice in God’s Saints by Mary Kay Beall/arr. by John Carter

Rejoice in God’s saints today and all days, a world without saints forgets how to praise. In loving, in living, they prove it is true, the way of self-giving, Lord, leads us to you. [Fred Pratt Green]
