HYMN:  We Give Thee but Thine Own [Schumann]

SERMON:  “Those without Anything Bless Everyone”

ANTHEM:  We Give Thee But Thine Own by Robert Elmore

We give Thee but Thine own, what-e’er the gift may be: all that we have is Thine alone, a trust, O Lord, from Thee.  May we Thy bounties thus as stewards true receive, and gladly, as Thou blesses us, to Thee our first-fruits give.  Our hearts are bruised and dead, and homes are bare and cold, and lambs, for whom the Shepherd bled, are straying from the fold!  To comfort and to bless, to find a balm for woe, to tend the lone and fatherless, is angels’ work below.  The captive to release, to God the lost to bring, to teach the way of life and peace, it is a Christ-like thing.  And we believe Thy word, though dim our faith may be; what-e’er we do for Thine, O Lord, we do it unto Thee. [Bishop W. Walsham How]


HYMN:  Heaven Is Singing for Joy [Alegria]


BENEDICTION RESPONSE:  A Grateful Heart by Katherine Danforth Fisher

God, who has given us so much, give us one thing more; give us a grateful heart.  Amen. [George Herbert]
