INTROIT:  God of the Ages  arr. by Arlen Clarke

God of the ages, whose almighty hand leads forth in beauty all the starry band of shining worlds in splendor through the skies, our grateful songs before thy throne arise.  Thy love divine hath led us in the past; in this free land with thee our lot is cast; be thou our ruler, guardian, guide, and stay, thy Word our law, thy paths our chosen way.  From war’s alarms, from deadly pestilence, be thy strong arm our ever sure defense; thy true religion in our hearts increase; thy bounteous goodness nourish us in peace.  Refresh thy people on their toilsome way; lead us from night to never-ending day; fill all our lives with love and grace divine, and glory, laud, and praise be ever thine. [Daniel C. Roberts]

ANTHEM:  God of Compassion, in Mercy Befriend Us by Richard Peek

God of compassion, in mercy befriend us; giver of grace for our needs all availing, wisdom and strength for each day do Thou send us, patience untiring and courage unfailing.  Wandering and lost, thou hast sought us and found us; stilled our rude hearts with thy word of consoling; wrap now thy peace, like a mantle, around us, guarding our thoughts and our passions controlling.  How shall we stray with thy hand to direct us, thou who the stars in their courses art guiding?  What shall we fear, with thy power to protect us, we who walk forth in thy greatness confiding?  Amen. [John J. Moment]
