PRELUDE:  Prelude on “Melita” (“Eternal Father, Strong to Save”)  by Wayne L. Wold



HYMN:  O Lord My God, How Great Thou Art [How Great Thou Art]


INTROIT:  Still, Still with Thee by John Ness Beck/trans. by Craig Courtney

Still, still with Thee, when purple morning breaketh, when the bird wakens, and the shadows flee; fairer the morning, lovelier than daylight, dawns the sweet consciousness, “I am with Thee.”  When sinks the soul, subdued by toil to slumber, its closing eyes look up to Thee in prayer; sweet the repose beneath Thy wings o’er-shading, but sweeter still to wake and find Thee there.  So shall it be at last in that bright morning, when the soul wakens, and life’s shadows flee; O in that moment, fairer than daylight dawning, shall rise the glorious thought, “I am with Thee. I am with Thee; still, still with Thee.” [Harriet Beecher Stowe]


SCRIPTURE LESSON:  Psalm 5:1-8, 11

HYMN:  What Does the Lord Require of You? [Moon]

SERMON:  “The Value of Low Self-Esteem”

ANTHEM:  Awake, My Heart by Jane M. Marshall

Awake, my heart, and render to God thy sure defender, thy Maker, thy preserver, a song of love and fervor.  Confirm my deeds and guide me: my day, with thee beside me, beginning, middle, ending, will all be upward tending.  My heart shall be thy dwelling, with joy and gladness swelling; Thy word my nurture, given to bring me on toward heaven. [Paulus Gerhardt, Tr. Winfred Douglas]






HYMN:  Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory [Battle Hymn]


RESPONSE:  Celtic Prayer by Mark Patterson

You are the peace of all things calm.  You are the place to hide from harm.  You are the light that shines in dark.  You are the heart’s eternal spark.  You are my love; keep me from ill, you are my Lord and with me still.  You are the light, the truth, the way; you are my Savior this very day.  Amen. [Celtic oral tradition, 1st millennium]
