- from Psalm 55

Give ear to my prayer, O God; do not hide yourself from my supplication.
Listen and answer, I shake with grief at the furor of my enemies.
They threaten and attack me; they shout out curses, venting their anger against me.
Fear and trembling come upon me, and horror overwhelms me.
And I say, ?O, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest,
Truly, I would flee far away; I would lodge in the wilderness;
I would hurry to find a shelter for myself from the raging wind and tempest.?
Confuse, O Lord, confound their speech; for I see violence and strife in the city.
Iniquity and trouble are within it; ruin is in its midst.


Hymn - Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found; was blind, but now, I see.

?Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares we have already come.
?Twas grace that brought us safe thus far and grace will lead us home.

When we've been here a thousand years bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise then when we've first begun.

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found; was bound, but now, I?m free.


Reading - from Psalm 27

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear;
though war rise up against me, yet I will be confident.
Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud, be gracious to me and answer me!
Do not hide your face from me.

Pastoral Prayer
The Prayer of Jesus

Our God, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory,
forever and ever.  Amen.


Reading - from Psalm 46

Leader: God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble.
All: Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar, and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
Leader: God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved;
All: God will help it when the morning dawns.


Hymn - God Bless America

God bless America, land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her, through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies, to the oceans, white with foam--
God bless America, my home sweet home.
God bless America, my home sweet home.
