PRAYER

INTROIT:  Messiah is King by J. M. Vogel

Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing; Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King!  Zion the marvelous story be telling, Son of the Highest, how lowly his birth!  The brightest archangel in glory excelling, he will redeem thee, he reigns upon earth.  O speak of how he cometh; from nation unto nation, the marvelous good news let the earth echo round: once again shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing … How free to the faithful, he offers salvation, his folk with joy everlasting are crowned.  O mortals, your homage be gratefully bringing, sweet let the gladsome hosannas arise; ye cherubim the full alleluia be singing; one chorus must resound through the earth and the skies. [W. A. Muhlenburg]

ANTHEM:  Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven by David H. Williams

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven; to his feet thy tribute bring; ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven, evermore his praises sing:  Alleluia!  Praise the everlasting King!  Praise him for his grace and favor to our fathers in distress; praise him still the same as ever, slow to chide, and swift to bless:  Alleluia!  Glorious in his faithfulness.  Father-like he tends and spares us; well our feeble frame he knows; in his hand he gently bears us, rescues us from all our foes.  Alleluia!  Widely yet his mercy flows.  Angels, help us to adore him; ye behold him face to face; sun and moon, bow down before him, dwellers all in time and space.  Alleluia!  Praise with us the God of grace.  Alleluia!  [Henry Francis Lyte, based on Psalm 103]
