HYMN:  Come Sing, O Church, in Joy! [Darwall’s 148th]

PRAYER

INTROIT:  Give Me a Faith by Roberta Bitgood; Daphne Riddle, soprano solo, Marcus Carline, bass solo

Give me a faith, O Lord, I pray, a faith that makes me strong each day, that helps me face the storms of life, that takes away the sting of strife.  Give me a joy that faith will bring, a joy that helps my heart to sing, whatever the tasks and perils be, and trials sore that trouble me.  Give me the peace that faith will give, a peace that shows me how to live above the loud and mighty roar of winds and waves upon life’s shore.  Give me the peace.  Give me the hope that faith bestows, a hope that triumphs through all woes, to see the dawning of the hour when all shall recognize thy power.  Give me a faith that ever grows in spite of clouds and cruel foes; a faith that holds me close to thee, and from all ills will set me free.  Give me a faith! [The Rev. Charles Lee Reynolds]

PRAYER

ANTHEM:  Have Faith by Walt Harrah, arr. by Jeff Lippencott

In trust, believe, take hold, receive.  Be bold, be strong, have faith. Let go of doubt; with hope step out. Be bold, be strong, have faith.  Have faith when the test is long.  Have faith, right will conquer wrong.  Have faith, God’s working out his plan.  Have faith in his sovereignty.  Have faith, though you cannot see.  Have faith, stay the course, persevere.  In trust, believe, take hold, receive.  Be bold, be strong, have faith.  Let go of doubt with hope step out.  Be bold, be strong, have faith.  Have faith, God will vindicate.  Have faith through the endless wait.  Have faith, God’s timing is the best. Have faith, God is very near.  Have faith, don’t give into fear.  Have faith, stay the course, persevere.  In trust, believe, take hold, receive.  Be bold, be strong, have faith.  Let go of doubt; with hope step out.  Be bold, be strong, have faith!
