Hymn 314Editorial Note: This hymn was written by Madame Guyon (Jeanne Marie Bouvieres de la Mothe) (1648–1717). She led the Quietist movement in France, which espoused the cultivation of inner serenity and quietness as a means of uniting with the Godhead.

My Lord, how full of sweet content I pass my years of banishment! Where’er I dwell, I dwell with thee, In heaven, in earth, or on the sea. To me remains nor place nor time: My country is in every clime. I can be calm and free from care On any shore, since God is there.

While place we seek, or place we shun, The soul finds happiness in none; But, with a God to guide our way, ‘Tis equal joy to go or stay. Could I be cast where thou art not, That were indeed a dreadful lot; But regions none remote I call, Secure of finding God in all.

Scripture Reading.

Silent prayer

Lord’s Prayer. in concert

Hymn 140Editorial Note: This hymn was written by Samuel Longfellow (1819–1892), a Unitarian minister who was the younger brother of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

The loving Friend to all who bowed Beneath life’s weary load, From lips baptized in humble prayer, His consolations flowed.

The faithful Witness to the truth, His just rebuke was hurled Out from a heart that burned to break The fetters of the world.

No hollow rite, no lifeless creed, His piercing glance could bear; But longing hearts which sought him found That God and heaven were there.

Prayer.

Hymn. 31Editorial Note: This hymn was written by John Fawcett (1740–1817), an English Baptist minister.

Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing, Hope and comfort from above; Let us each, thy peace possessing, Triumph in redeeming love; Still support us, While in duty’s path we move.

Thanks we give, and adoration, For the gospel’s joyful sound: May the fruits of thy salvation In our hearts and lives abound: May thy presence With us evermore be found.

Benediction.
