PRELUDE:  Prelude on “God, That Madest Earth and Heaven”  by Wilha Hutson



HYMN:  This Is the Day [Este Es El Dia]


SOLO:  Take My Life, and Let It Be by Harry Huff; Maria Schafer, soprano

Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord to Thee.  Take my moments and my days; let them flow in ceaseless praise.  Take my hands and let them move at the impulse of Thy love.  Take my feet, and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee.  Take my voice, and let me sing always only, for my King.  Take my lips, and let them be filled with messages from Thee.  Take my silver and my gold; not a mite would I withhold.  Take my intellect, and use every power as Thou shalt choose.  Take my will, and make it Thine; it shall be no longer mine.  Take my heart, it is thine own; it shall be Thy royal throne.  Take my love; my Lord, I pour at Thy feet its treasure store.  Take myself, and I will be ever, only, all for Thee. [Frances Havergal]



HYMN:  We Give Thee but Thine Own [Schumann]

SERMON:  “The Virtue of Being Reactionary”

ANTHEM:  Carol of Beauty by Dennis Krause

Praise we the Lord who made all beauty for all our senses to enjoy.  Give we our humble thanks and duty for simple pleasures we employ.  Praise we the Lord who made all beauty for all our senses to enjoy.  Praise him who makes our life a pleasure, sending us things which glad our eyes.  Thank him who gives us welcome leisure that in our hearts sweet thoughts may rise.  Praise him who loves to see young lovers, fresh hearts that swell with youthful pride.  Thank him who sends the sun above us, as bride-groom fit to meet his bride.  Praise him who by a simple flower lifts our hearts to things above, thank him who gives to each one power to find a friend to know and love. [Steuart Wilson]


HYMN:  I’m Gonna Live So God Can Use Me [I’m Gonna Live]


BENEDICTION RESPONSE:  God, Bless Us and Keep Us by Robert Buckley Farlee

God, bless us and keep us and make us a blessing, a sign of your mercies outnumbering the stars.  Enliven our labor with love for our neighbor, the harvest of grateful and grace-bearing hearts. [Susan Ruth Briehl]
