Change my heart, O God, make it ever true.  Change my heart, O God, may I be like you.  You are the Potter, I am the clay.  Mold me and make me, this is what I pray.  In my life, Lord, be glorified, be glorified. In my life, Lord, be glorified today. In your church, Lord, be glorified, be glorified, in your church, Lord, be glorified today. [Eddie Espinosa and Bob Kilpatrick]

BENEDICTION

BENEDICTION RESPONSE:  Till and Tend My Heart by Jane Marshall

My patient Father, sower of eternal life, till and tend my heart.  In every temptation and in every opposition, open me more deeply so the seed of your Word will penetrate deeper to the core of my being.  I surrender all, all of myself to you, heart, mind, and muscle.  Show me today what that means as I move among a people whom you also love.  My patient Father, till and tend my heart. [Julian of Norwich]
