ANTHEM:  For This Cause by Harold W. Friedell; Joe Sanders, bass solo

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, the length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly, above all that we ask or think, according to the power, that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end.  Amen. [Ephesians 3:14-21]
