Hymn. 166.Editorial Note: At least two of the hymns sung at this service are from the Social Hymn and Tune Book, published in Boston by the American Unitarian Association and printed by John Wilson & Son, Cambridge, Massachusetts. The text of hymn 166 is taken from a poem by John Greenleaf Whittier, written in 1866 and titled “Our Master.” The music is the hymn tune “Coronation,” composed by Oliver Holden in 1793. Tune:--Coronation

O Love! O Life! our faith and sight Thy presence maketh one: As, through transfigured clouds of white, We trace the noon-day sun.

We faintly hear, we dimly see, In differing phrase we pray; But, dim or clear, we own in thee The Light, the Truth, the Way.

To do thy will is more than praise, As words are less than deeds; And simple trust can find thy ways We miss with chart of creeds.

Our Friend, our Brother, and our Lord, What may thy service be? Nor name, nor form, nor ritual word, But simply following thee. Rise

Hymn. 77Editorial Note: This is a modified version of a hymn titled “Just as I Am.” The words were written in 1835 by Charlotte Elliott, and the tune, “Woodworth,” was composed by W. B. Bradbury in 1849.Tune:―Woodworth.

Just as I am,―without one plea But that thy love is seeking me, And that thou bid’st me come to thee,― O loving God! I come.

Just as I am,―though tossed about With many a conflict, many a doubt, Fightings within, and fears without, O loving God! I come.

Just as I am,―thou wilt receive, Wilt welcome, pardon, heal, relieve; Because thy promise I believe, O loving God! I come.

Hymn.Editorial Note: These words are taken from a hymn, “Sing, my tongue, the Savior’s glory,” written originally in Latin by Thomas Aquinas (1227–1274). It was translated into English by Edward Caswall in 1849. The text of this hymn was written by Reginald Heber in 1827. before CommunionAs Written:Com

On the night of that last supper, Seated with His chosen band, Christ, as food to all His brethren, Gives Himself with His own hand.

He, as man with man conversing, Staid the seeds of truth to sow; Then He closed, in solemn order, Wondrously, His life of woe.

Lo! o’er ancient forms departing, Newer rites of grace prevail; Faith for all defects supplying, Where the feeble senses fail.

To the everlasting Father, Through the son who reigns on high, Be salvation, honor, blessing, Might, and endless majesty.

Invitation We invite all who love the Christ to unite with us in silent Communion and partake with us of His presence and power and drink of His Life-giving love

Hymn. 111Editorial Note: The text of this hymn was written by Reginald Heber in 1827.Tune:―Peterborough.

O God, by whom the seed is given, By whom the harvest blest; Whose word, like manna, showered from heaven, Is planted in our breast!

Preserve it from the passing feet, And plunderers of the air, The sultry sun’s intenser heat. And weeds of worldly care.

Though buried deep or thinly strewn, Do thou thy grace supply: The hope in earthly furrows sown Shall ripen in the sky.

Benediction
