3rd Sunday after Pentecost

Hymn # 812 Faith of Our Fathers

Faith of our fathers living still, in spite of dungeon, fire and sword.
Oh how our hearts beat high with joy,
Whenever we hear that glorious word.
Faith of our fathers, Holy faith, we will be true to you till death.

The martyrs chained in prisons dark, were still in heart and conscience free
And blest would be there children’s fate,
If they like them should die for thee.
Faith of our fathers, Holy faith, we will be true to you till death.

Faith of our fathers we will love, both friends and foe in all our strife,
Proclaim thee too as love knows how,
By saving word and faithful life.
Faith of our fathers, Holy faith, we will be true to you till death.

Hymn #824 This is My Father’s World

This is my Father’s world, and to my listening ears,
All nature sings and ’round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world,I rest me in the thought,
Of rocks and trees of skies and seas, His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father’s world, the birds their carols raise;
The morning light the lily white declare their maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world,He shines in all that’s fair,
In the rustling grass I hear him pass, he speaks to me ev’rywhere.

This is my Father’s world,Oh let me not forget,
That thought the wrong seems oft so strong God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world, why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King let Heaven ring, God reigns let earth be glad.

Hymn #537 On Our Way Rejoicing

On our way rejoicing gladly let us go.
Christ our Lord has conquered, vanquished is the foe
Christ without our safety, Christ within our joy,
Who, if we be faithful, can our hope destroy.

On our way rejoicing, as we forward move,
Hearken to our praises, O blest God of love!

Unto God the Father, joyful songs we sing,
Unto God the savior, thankful hearts we bring.
Unto God the Spirit, bow we and adore,
On our way rejoicing now and evermore.

On our way rejoicing, as we forward move,
Hearken to our praises, O blest God of love!
