ANTHEM:  I’ll Praise My Maker by Gilbert M. Martin

I’ll praise my Maker while I’ve breath; and when my soul is lost in death, praise shall employ my nobler powers.  My days of praise shall never be past, while life, and thought, and being last, or immortality endures.  Happy the one whose hopes rely on Israel’s God; he made the sky and earth and seas, with all their train.  His truth forever stands secure, he saves the oppressed, he feeds the poor, and none shall find his promise vain.  The Lord pours eyesight on the blind; the Lord supports the fainting mind; he sends the laboring conscience peace. He helps the stranger in distress, the widow and the fatherless, and grants the prisoner sweet release.  I’ll praise my God who lends me breath; and when my voice is lost in death, praise shall employ my nobler powers.  My days of praise shall never be past, while life, and thought, and being last, or immortality endures.  Amen.  [Isaac Watts, alt. John Wesley]
