Andante tranquillo (from Sonata III) by Felix Mendelssohn
Prelude & Cantilena (from Suite in E Major) by Everett Titcomb


Hymn 77

James Montgomery

God is my strong salvation;
What foe have I to fear?
In darkness and temptation,
My light, my help is near:
Though hosts encamp around me,
Firm in the fight I stand;
What terror can confound me,
With God at my right hand?

Place on the Lord reliance;
My heart, with courage wait;
His truth be thine affiance,
When faint and desolate:
His might thy heart shall strengthen,
His love thy joy increase;
Thy day shall mercy lengthen:
The Lord will give thee peace.

Hymn 111

Isaac Watts

High in the heavens, eternal God,
Thy goodness in full glory shines;
Thy truth shall break through every cloud
That veils and darkens Thy designs.

Forever firm Thy justice stands,
As mountains their foundations keep:
How wise the wonders of Thy hands;
Thy judgments are a mighty deep.

Life, like a fountain rich and free,
Springs from the presence of my Lord;
And in Thy light we all shall see
The glories promised in Thy Word.

Hymn 389

William Young

While Thou, O my God, art my help and defender,
No cares can o'erwhelm me, no terrors appall;
The wiles and the snares of this world will but render
More lively my hope in my God and my all.

Yes, Thou art my refuge in sorrow and danger;
My strength, should I suffer; my hope, should I fall;
My comfort and joy in this land of the stranger;
My treasure, my glory, my God, and my all.
