Hymn Selection


FATHER, to Thy gracious throne
We draw nigh in all our need,
In the Name of Him alone
Who for us in heav'n doth plead.
May Thy holy Name be praised
Now on earth as 'tis in heav'n;
May Thy glory high be raised,
Unto Thee be worship giv'n.
Here on earth beset by foes,
Well beloved by Christ her Head,
May the church in love's repose
He appointed journey tread.
May the Christ dwell in our heart,
Known in love past human ken:
Joying in our heav'nly part,
Counsel deep and vast for men.
May we here our strength renew,
Mount with eagle's wings above,
Run the race with Him in view,
Faint not here, but walk in love.

C.C. Elliot
