An - gels of God pro-claimed His birth, High and low, high and low. 
Chil-dren with crowns of glo - ry stand, Robed in white, robed in white. 
Chil-dren of earth now with Him reign There on high, there on high,

It sounds like

ear, The

It 


tells 


me 


of 


His 


pre - cious blood, The 


sin - ner's

It cheers me through this 


lit - tie while, Through des-ert, waste, and

No saint on earth its worth can tell, No

Breathes a life of gathering gloom: King, and God, and Sacrifice; 

Alleluia, alleluia!

Sealed in the stone-cold tomb.

By the Cross are sanctified; 
Peace is there that knows no measure, 
Joys that through all time abide.

Towering o'er the wrecks of time; 
All the light of sacred story 

Gathers round its head sublime.

EASTER 



Very Early in the Morning 



5 As they turned to hurry homeward, 

Came One toward them in the way. 
Now they stop, and gaze in wonder; 

"Hail! All hail!" they hear Him say. 
Yes, it was the Risen Jesus, 

Lord and Friend they loved so well, 
Living, loving, smiling on them! 

O, the joy, this news to tell! 



6 Hail! All hail! Dear Lord, we greet Thee 

On this Resurrection Day. 
May we ever with the angel 

Our glad praise and worship pay; 
And, too, like the holy women, 

We would ever Thee adore, 
Love, and serve Thee and Thy Father 

And Thy Spirit evermore.

5 Lo, at midnight, Who is He 
Prays in dark Gethsemane? 

6 Who is He> in Calvary's throes, 
Asks for blessings on His foes? 



7 Who is He that from the grave 
Comes to heal and help and save? 

8 Who is He that on yon throne 
Rules the world of light alone?

4 Holy Spirit, give us 

Each a lowly mind; 
Make us more like Jesus, 
Gentle, pure, and kind. 

5 Holy Spirit, brighten 

Little deeds of toil; 
And our playful pastimes 
Let no folly spoil. 

C Holy Spirit, keep us 

Safe from sins which lie 
Hidden by some pleasure 
From our youthful eye. 

7 Holy Spirit, help us 

Daily by Thy might 
What is wrong to conquer, 
And to choose the right.

in our play, Je - sus, be Thou ev - er near, 

low - ly child, In the far - off Ho - ly Land, 

play-hour too, If we ask Thy help so strong; 

thus to spend Work and play-tiine in His sight, 










Guard-ing, guid - ing all the day, Keep - ing in Thy ho - ly fear. 

Bless - ing la - bor un - de - filed, Pure and hon - est, of the hand. 

Watch o'er all we say and do, Hold us back from guilt and wrong. 

Till the rest which shall not end, Till the day which knows not night! A-men.

Make flow - ers grow and birds to sing; Bring warmth to me and ev - 'ry thing. 
They're bus - y in un - us-ual ways: They need badweath-er for then* praise! 
And has them grow-ing ev - 'ry-where, And wants us all their joy to share. 
Now here, now there, now 'way up high; "God cares for me," they al-ways cry.

So too, when He has shined on me, 

So lis - ten when the rain-drops say: 

So, like these pret - ty flowers, let's be 

So lit - tie birds are teach-ing me 



A glad sun-beam I am to be. 
"Beuse-ful too each rain - y day." 
A pleas-ure for the world to see. 
Al - ways to sing and thank-ful be.

Thus the Saviour taught 
Clean in mind, in soul, in body, 
Pure in every thought.

We will to them say, 
"Jesus wants you to be loving, 
Each and every day."

wa - tered, Lord, by Thee? 



The trees and flowers 

God's chil - dren, in 

And grace, like gen - 

O let them hear

Just as I am, Thine own to be, Friend of the young, Who lov-est me, 
In the glad morn-ing of my day, My life to give, my vows to pay, 
I would live ev - er in the light, I would work ev - er for the right, 
Just as I am, young, strong, and free, To be the best that I can be,

Who lives up there, Where all is fair Dear chil - dren, can you say? 

When day is done, Who takes the sun So quick - ly from its place? 

[The moon so oft That shin - eth soft, Who draws it through the sky? 

So great, so kind, None can we find: He gives us day and night.

Where no fears intrude, 
Merry birds are singing 
" God is ever good."

Songs of gratitude;

The lit - tie hands some work may try That will some sim- pie want sup -ply: 

The lit - tie lips can praise and pray, And gen -tie words of kind-ness say: : 

The lit - tie eyes can up- ward look, Can learn to read God's ho - ly Book: 

Young hearts, if He His Spir - it send, Can love their Mak-er, Sav-iour, Friend:

SERVING THE HEAVENLY FATHER

MATILDA B. BETHAM EDWARDS (1836 ), 1873 



From the German

1. God make my life a

3. God make my life a 

4. God make my life a 



lit - tie light, With - in the world to glow: 
lit - tie flower That giv - eth joy to all, 
lit - tie staff, Where - on the weak may rest, 
lit - tie hymn Of ten-der-ness and praise, 




A lit - tie flame that burn-eth bright, Wher-ev - er I may go. 

Con-tent to bloom in na-tive bower, Al-though its place be small. 

That so what strength and health I have, May serve my neigh-bor best. 

Of faith that nev - er grow-eth dim, In all His won - drous ways. A - men.

4 Because the Saviour shed His Blood 5 On earth they sought the Saviour's grace, 

To wash away then- sin; On earth they loved His Name; 

Bathed in that pure and precious flood, At last they see His blessed face. 
Behold them white and clean. And stand before the Lamb.

4 Jesus took them for His own, 
Made them pure and holy, 
And on earth His gentle love 
Trained them for their home above, 
Safe from sin and folly. 



5 Blessed Jesus, take me, too, 

Though I'm weak and lowly, 
Let Thy gentle grace within 
Make my garments white and clean, 
And my spirit holy.

His praise to Whom their souls be-long, 

While loud - er, sweet-er, clear - er still, Woods e - cho to the strain. 

Till morn to eve, and noon to night, And heaven to earth re - ply. 

This is the chil-dren's ju - bi - lee, Let all the chil - dren sing. A-men.

department's worship.

CHILDREN'S DEVOTIONS AND PRAYERS 

1. The Ten Commandments 

I am the Lord thy God. 

Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. 

Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain; for 
the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain. 

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 

Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long upon 
the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. 

Thou shalt not kill. 

Thou shalt not commit adultery. 

Thou shalt not steal. 

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. 

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house. 

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor 
his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is thy 
neighbor's. 

2. The Apostles' Creed 

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. 

And in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived 
by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary; Suffered under Pontius 
Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; The 
third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, 
And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From 
thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Ghost; The Holy Christian Church, the 
Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection 
of the body; And the Life everlasting. Amen. 

3. The Lord's Prayer 

Our Father, Who art in heaven; Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy 
Kingdom come; Thy Will be done on earth, as it is in heaven; Give 
us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our trespasses, as we 
forgive those who trespass against us; And lead us not into tempta- 
tion; But deliver us from evil; For Thine is the Kingdom, and the 
Power, and the Glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

DEVOTIONS AND PRAYERS

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for their's is the kingdom of heaven. 

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: 
for they shall be filled. 

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. 

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. 

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children 
of God. 

Blessed are they. which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: 
for their's is the kingdom of heaven. 

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and 
shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: 
for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. 

5. For Every Day 

Every morning when you wake, say first of all: 
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

Amen. 
Then say: 

Now I wake and see the light; 

I pray the Lord to lead me right. 

In all I do, or think, or say, 

Whether at home, or school, or play, 

I pray the Lord to guide my way 

And keep me in His care alway. Amen. 

6. Morning Prayers 

We give thanks unto Thee, Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, 
Thy dear Son, that Thou hast protected us through the night from 
all danger and harm; and we beseech Thee to preserve and keep us 
this day also from all sin and evil, that in all our thoughts, words, 
and deeds, we may serve and please Thee. Into Thy hands we com- 
mend our bodies and souls, and all that is ours. Let Thy holy angel 
have charge concerning us, that the wicked one have no power over 

us. Amen.

Psalm 1 

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly: 
Nor standeth in the way of sinners, not sitteth in the seat of the 

scornful. 

But his delight is in the law of the Lord: 

And in his law doth he meditate day and night. 

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth 

forth his fruit in his season : 

His leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall 

prosper. 

Psalm 8 

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth 1 
Who hast set thy glory above the heavens. 

Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength 
because of thine enemies, 

That thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. 

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, 

The moon and the stars, which thou has ordained; 

What is man, that thou art mindful of him? 

And the son of man, that thou visitest him? 

For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, 

And hast crowned him with glory and honour. 

Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; 

Thou hast put all things under his feet: 

All sheep and oxen, 

Yea, and the beasts of the field; 

The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, 

And whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. 

O Lord our Lord,' 

How excellent is thy name in all the earth ! '..

Psalm 19 
I 

The heavens declare the glory of God; 
And the firmament showeth his handywork. 
Day unto day uttereth speech, 
And night unto night showeth knowledge. 
There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 
In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 
Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, 
And rejoice th as a strong man to run a race. 

His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the 
ends of it : 

And there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. 

H 

The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: 
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. 
The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: 
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. 
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: 
The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. 
More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold : 
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 
Moreover by them is thy servant warned: 
And in keeping of them there is great reward. 
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be accept- 
able in thy sight, 

Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

And thou givest them their meat in due season. 

Thou openest thine hand : 

And satisfies! the desire of every living thing.

THE CHILDREN'S PSALTER 

The Lord is righteous in all his ways : 

And holy in all his works. 

The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him : 

To all that call upon him in truth. 

He will f ulfill the desire of them that fear him : 

He also will hear their cry, and will save them. 

The Lord preserveth all them that love him : 

But all the wicked will he destroy. 

My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: 

And let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever. 

Psalm 148 

Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens : 

Praise VHm in the heights. 

Praise ye him, all his angels : 

Praise ye him, all his hosts. 

Praise ye him, sun and moon: 

Praise him, all ye stars of light. 

Praise him, ye heavens of heavens: 

And ye waters that be above the heavens. 

Let them praise the name of the Lord: 

For he commanded, and they were created. 

He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: 

He hath made a decree which shall not pass. 

Praise the Lord from the earth : 

Ye dragons, and all deeps; 

Fire, and hail, snow, and vapors: 

Stormy wind fulfilling his word; 

Mountains, and all hills : 

Fruitful trees, and all cedars; 

Beasts, and all cattle : 

Creeping things, and flying fowl; 

Kings of the earth, and all people: 

Princes, and all judges of the earth; 

Both young men, and maidens : 

Old men, and children; 

246 



THE CHILDREN'S PSALTER 

Let them praise the name of the Lord: 

For his name alone is excellent, his glory is ahove the earth and 
heaven. 

He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints : 

Even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise 
ye the Lord. 

Psalm 150 

Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: 

Praise him in the firmament of his power. 

Praise him for his mighty acts : 

Praise him according to his excellent greatness. 

Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: 

Praise him with the psaltery and harp. 

Praise him with the timbrel and dance : 

Praise him with stringed instruments and organs. 

Praise him upon the loud cymbals : 

Praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. 

Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord: 

Praise ye the Lord. 



GLORY BE TO THE FATHER, AND TO THE SON, AND TO THE HOLY GHOST: 
As IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING, IS NOW, AND EVER SHALL BE, WORLD WITH- 
OUT END. AMEN.

ORDER OF SERVICE 

For Christmas 

Prelude 

The music of "Come Hither, Ye Faithful," No. 3, or "Hark! the 
Herald Angels Sing," No. 5, ending with the signal calling the school 
to reverent silence and to rise. All stand quietly with hands folded 
and eyes closed while one of the older boys repeats the 

Opening Prayer 

Come Jesus, Holy Child, to me: 

Close tight my heart to all but Thee; 

And with Thy Holy Spirit's grace 

Make me, Dear Lord, Thy dwelling-place. Amen. 

Invitatory 

Superintendent: Unto us the Christ is born. 
School: O come, let us worship Him. 
All sing: (No. 3.) 

Come hither, ye faithful, triumphantly sing; 

Come see in the manger the angels' dread King! 

To Bethlehem hasten, with joyful accord; 

O come ye, come hither, to worship the Lord! 
All say: We worship Thee, O Lord Jesus, Whose Birthday we 
celebrate this Day. Amen. 
All sing: (No. 3.) 

To Thee, then, O Jesus, this day of Thy birth, 

Be glory and honor through heaven and earth; 

True God-head incarnate, omnipotent Word ! 

O come, let us hasten to worship the Lord. 

The Christmas Prayer 

All say: 

For the Little Baby 

In the stable born; 
For the song of angels, 

Sung this Christmas morn; 



CHRISTMAS 

For the precious Story 

Of Thy love to me; 
All my heart, Dear Father, 

Now I give to Thee. 

Our Father, Who art in heaven. . . . 

Carol 

"Little Children Can You Tell," No. 6. (Stanzas 1 and 2). 

TELLING THE CHRISTMAS STORY 

This will require seven children who shall recite the indicated 
sections of the Christmas Gospel, St. Luke 2:1-20. 

The first child begins to recite the Story, beginning with St. Luke 
2:1, continuing through verse 7, telling of 

The Birth of Jesus 

The school sings "Away in a Manger," No. 7. 
The second child recites verse 8, telling of 

The Shepherds 

The school sings stanza two of "Silent Night!" No. 4. 
The third child recites verse 9, telling of 

The Angel 

The school sings the first stanza of "While Shepherds Watched 
Their Flocks by Night." For music see "The Parish School Hymnal," 

No. 24. 

While shepherds watched their flocks by night, 

All seated on the ground, 
The angel of the Lord came down 

And glory shone around. 
"Fear not," said he, for mighty dread 

Had seized their troubled mind, 
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring 

To you and all mankind." 

The fourth child recites verses 10 to 12, telling of 

253 



CHRISTMAS 

The Angel's Announcement 

The school sings stanzas one and two of "Good News from Heaven 
the Angels Bring." See "The Parish School Hymnal," No. 14. 
Good news from heaven the angels bring, 
Glad tidings to the earth they sing; 
To us this day a Child is given, 
To crown us with the joy of heaven. 

This is the Christ, our God and Lord, 
Who in all need shall aid afford; 
He will Himself our Saviour be, 
From all our sins to set us free. 

The fifth child recites verses 13 and 14, telling of 
The Angels' Song 

The school sings stanza one of "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, "No. 5. 
The sixth child recites verses 15 and 16, telling of 

The First Visitors 

The school sings "Infant so Gentle," No. 8. 

The seventh child recites verses 17 to 20, telling of 

The Glad Tidings 

The school sings "O, What may Happy Children Sing," No. 11. 
The Offering 

(Before the offering is received, be sure to impress upon the chil- 
dren's minds the great lesson of the day: The Gift of God to us in 
His Son, the Gift God's Son gives to us all; and then apply this in 
teaching the grace of giving for the good of others. Have some special 
object for the offering for the day; without fail, let it be for others.) 
While the offering is being received, let the children sing, "Little 
Givers, Come and Bring," No. 215. 

When it has been received, let all rise and one of the older children 
say: 

Dear God, Who gave Thy Son to us, 

Receive our gifts, we pray; 
And bless them so that others too, 

May know the Christmas Day. Amen. 

254 



CHRISTMAS 



The Christmas Tree* 

Locate the tree so that the children can both march and gather 
around it. It should be of good size, elevated on a stand, and, pref- 
erably, not decorated except for the Christmas lights (electric). 
If possible arrange a "Manger" on the stand under the tree. Have 
the children rise; play the carol, " Gather Around the Christmas Tree." 
Start them marching, and then singing the carol. 

Gather Around the Christmas Tree

* Note: The march around the Christmas tree may be omitted. When this is done, the 
children remain standing after the Offering Prayer, and the superintendent says the Closing 
Prayer immediately, and after that all sing the Blessing.

Dear Lord Jesus, Who wast born for us this day, and wast a Little 
Child as we are: Come to our hearts and help us to give Thee a loving 
gift each day by serving Thee. We pray, too, for the many boys 
and girls who do not know Thee and who do not have a happy Christ- 
mas Day. Send people to them who will tell them of Thy love and 
that Thou dost want them to be Thy boys and girls too, so that the 
whole world will be full of children who love Thee and want to please 
Thee. Amen. 

After the prayer, the children return to their seats while singing,

Versicles 

Superintendent: Christ hath appeared unto us. 

School: O come, let us worship Him. 

Behold, there came wise men from the East to Jerusalem, saying: 

Where is He that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen 

His star in the East, and are come to worship Him. 
And lo, the star, which they saw in the East, went before them : 

Till it came and stood over where the Young Child was. 
And when they were come into the house, they saw the Young 
Child with Mary, His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. 

And when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto 

Him gifts : gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. 

The Prayer 

All: (This may be sung. Tune: Bohemia, No. 25.) 

258 



EPIPHANY 

For the star that led men 

To the manger-throne; 
For the Boy's example 

In His Father's Home; 
For Christ's Glory shining 

At Epiphanie; 
All my heart, Dear Father, 

Now I give to Thee. 

Our Father, Who art in heaven ....

The Creed may be recited by all, following the Scripture reading. 

Offering 

When the offering has been received, a stanza of a hymn of praise 
may be sung; or, one of the children may sing or recite: 
As they offered gifts most rare

So may we, with holy joy, 
Pure, and free from sin's alloy, 
All our costliest treasures bring,

Introduction to the Prayer 

All sing: "Father, Hear Thy Little Children," No. 85. 

The Closing Prayer 

Superintendent: O Lord Jesus, Who didst love the little children 
and lay Thy hands upon them in blessing: We thank Thee for Thy 
love for us and pray Thee to help us daily to learn to love Thee more 
and more. Open our hearts and dwell in them. Fill our minds with 
Thy truth. Keep our feet from wandering from Thy way. Make 
our hands gentle, willing to give and bless. Teach us to be obedient, 
truthful, pure, and faithful, so that we may be a blessing to others 
and live to Thy glory. Amen. 

The Blessing 

All: Our dear Father in Heaven bless and keep us till in His care, 
for Jesus' sake. Amen. 

Note: Epiphany means manifestation. The Festival and its Season, so closely associated 
with the Nativity of our Lord, continues the joy and glory of that holy day's Event, but 
with the idea of revealing all this splendor first in the Boy and then hi the Young Man Jesus. 

This Service should be used throughout this Season, changing the hymns and prayers, 
etc., Sunday after Sunday, but using these days as opportunities to emphasize the Boyhood 
and Young Manhood of Jesus.

LENT 

Instead of the Versicles, "Our Lord Jesus, etc." and "Praise ye, 
etc." the school may sing, "God so loved the world," No. 56. 

The Prayer 

All say: 

For my suffering Saviour 

Who the Cross did bear; 
For the love He gave me 

And children everywhere; 
For the place in heaven 

Won for you and me; 
All my heart, Dear Father, 

Now I give to Thee. 

Our Father, Who art in heaven. . . . 
Or 

Lord Jesus Christ be present here 
And make us all Thy children dear. 
Teach us to know what things are right; 
Help us all wrong and sin to fight; 
Make us obedient, clean, and true, 
And every day kind deeds to do. 

Our Father, Who art in heaven. . . . 

Sentence Hymn 

(Nos. 56-67.) 

Scripture or Catechism 

A selection from the Children's Psalter, p. 236, may be recited 
in unison, or a short passage of Holy Scripture as indicated in the 
Children's Lectionary, p. 249, may be read by the superintendent. 
The Creed may be recited by all following the Scripture reading.

The Closing Prayer 

All sing: ("Glory be to Jesus," No. 31.) 
Glory be to Jesus, 

"Who in bitter pains, 
Poured for me the life-blood 

From His sacred veins ! 

Lift we then our voices, 

Swell the mighty flood; 
Louder still and louder 

Praise the precious Blood! Amen.

The Blessing 

All: Our dear Lord Jesus, Who loves all little children, keep us in 
His love, and protect and bless us. Amen. 

Note: The Lenten Season in this department will best be emphasized as a "quiet 
time," rather than one of deep spiritual emotion which the children certainly will not grasp. 
The danger here is in losing all by attempting to emphasize too much. Our Lord's Sufferings 
for us and his Sacrificial Death can be brought home to the children, for there is a place of 
real sympathy and love in their hearts. But best leave the hymns, prayers, and lessons, 
all carefully chosen, do most of the teaching, and create by means of the Service an atmosphere 
of real worshipfulness and reverent, loving devotion to our All-giving Lord.

The hosts of sin are vanquished, 

He is the Victor King! 
Then let us all with gladness 

Our thankful praises sing.

Superintendent: The Lord is risen indeed. 
School: Alleluia! 

And very early in the morning, the first day of the week, the women 
came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. 

And when they looked they saw that the stone was rolled 
away: for it was very great. 

264 



EASTER 

And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting, 
clothed in a long white garment; and they were amazed. 

And he saith unto them: Be not amazed: ye seek Jesus of 
Nazareth, who was crucified: He is risen; he is not here. 

The Easter Prayer 

All sing: (Tune: Bohemia, No. 25.) 

For the Light and Glory 
Driving off the gloom ; 
For the Life victorious 

Bursting from the tomb; 
For my glorious Saviour 
Ris'n to life for me 
All my heart, Dear Father, 
Now I give to Thee. 

All say: Our Father, Who art in heaven. . . .

The Easter Gospel 

St. Matthew 28 :l-9, read responsively by an older boy and girl. 

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day 
of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the 
sepulchre. 

And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord 
descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the 
door, and sat upon it. 

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 

And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. 

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: 
for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where 
the Lord lay. 

And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the 
dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye 
see him: lo, I have told you. 

And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy 

and did run to bring his disciples word. 

265 



EASTER

them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, 
and worshipped him.

inserting other hymns and substituting other Scripture passages and using the proper Lesson 
for the Sunday. Other prayers may be used at the proper places. 

Be sure that the department rooms tell the children, "This Is Easter Day," in the deco- 
rations. Have a little blooming plant for each one of them, if at all possible; and send them

ORDER OF SERVICE 

For Pentecost 

Prelude 

Ending with the signal calling the school to reverent silence. 

Hymn 

"Holy Spirit, Hear Us," No. 48. 

The Festival 

Superintendent: Pentecost is a strange word, isn't it? It really 
means Fifty; and one of the reasons why we use this very old name 
for this day is because today is the fiftieth day after Easter. But 
something happened on this fiftieth day after the first Easter Day, 
and that is why we celebrate it in our Church. 

We all know what birthdays are, and we all enjoy celebrating 
them too. Well, today is a great Birthday, one of the greatest the 
world has ever seen. As the Lord Jesus promised, God the Father 
sent a Great Gift into the world on this day. He sent His Holy 
Spirit, and through His coming God's Church was born. So this really 
is the Birthday of the Church. 

I'm sure we all want to celebrate it with glad hearts and offer our 
Heavenly Father our praises : for such gifts please Him. 

Ascription 

All say: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy 
Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world 
without end. Amen. 

We praise Thee, O God the Holy Spirit, Who dost come into the 
world to draw men to Jesus. Amen. 
All sing: (Tune: Bohemia, No. 25.) 
For the Holy Spirit, 

Grace, and Truth, and Light; 
For the Way He teaches 

How to live aright; 
For the aid He offers 
Every day to me; 
268 



PENTECOST 



All my heart, Dear Father, 
Now I give to Thee. Amen. 



The Prayer 



Superintendent: Help us, O Holy Spirit, when we are taught about 
the holy men and women in the Bible, and about our Lord Jesus and 
how He wants us to grow up to be good and true men and women 
and always to please Him, help us, we pray, to understand that 
this is what God our loving Father in Heaven wants us to do; and 
teach us day by day to do this, in our thoughts, in our words, in our 
acts, wherever we are. Amen. 

Sentence Hymn 

"This is the day which the Lord hath made," No. 62. 

The Coming of the Holy Ghost 

Acts 2:1-6; 38-39; 41-42, read responsively by a number of the 
older children. 

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all 
with one accord in one place. 

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty 
wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 

And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it 
sat upon each of them. . 

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with 
other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 

And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of 
every nation under heaven. 

Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and 
were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own 
language. N 

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, >and be baptized every one 
of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye 
shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 

For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are 
afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 

269 



PENTECOST 

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the 
same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, 
and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that 
sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money- 
changers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 

And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the 
house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. 

And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple- and he 
healed them. 

And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things 
that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna 
to the son of David; they were sore displeased, 

And said unto Him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith 
unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and 
sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

necessarily be restricted to an emphasis of those things wholly within the comprehension of 
the children. For the "Story" there are many incidents in Reformation history concerning 
men and events which can be made of great interest to the child. Here, too, is an excellent 
opportunity to emphasize the child's part^and place in the Church; his opportunity to learn, 
to sing, to pray, in a word, to worship; then too, his little responsibilities: for here the lessons 
of love, service, and loyalty can be drawn.

Our Missionary Festival 

Superintendent: Today we want to think of a great work which 
must be done for the Lord Jesus, and how we can do our part in 
accomplishing it. You know that if we have something big and hard 
to do, why, right at the start we are afraid we will not be able to do 
it all alone; but when we get someone to help us, we are not afraid 
any longer and we feel quite certain we can do it. 

Now this work that is so great and that must be done, is to tell 
the people in the world, who^do not know about the heavenly Father 
and the Lord Jesus, all about God's love for them. God wants His 
children to do that for Him. That means that this Story which we 
know must be carried all over the world: for there are people right 
here at home and in far-away lands who do not love the Lord Jesus. 

The men and the women who go out into the world to do this, are 
called missionaries; that means, people who are sent out to preach 

275 



MISSIONS 

the Gospel. And the work they do is called mission work; and the 
places where they locate to do this work are called missions or mission 
stations. 

First of all we want to hear what the Lord Jesus said about this; 

so I will ask to read this to us from the 

Holy Gospel. 

The Commission 

One of the children previously appointed by the superintendent will 
read St. Matthew 28:16-20. 

Then the superintendent or one of the teachers continues: 

You see that command or commission, as it is called, when Jesus 
told His disciples to tell people everywhere in the world about Him- 
self, that is, to preach the Gospel, took place many, many years ago, 
right after He rose from the grave that First Easter Day. 

Just think how full the world has been of missionaries ever since, 
people who loved the Lord Jesus and were very anxious to have their 
fellowmen know about Him and love Him too. How gladly they 
carried that Holy Message everywhere. And the reason they were 
not afraid to go forth but went out gladly and worked so hard was 
that they knew the Lord Jesus was with them, helping them at all 
times. We have a very fine hymn in our service book that tells us 
about God's people everywhere and something about ourselves too. 
While we sing it, let us not forget to think about the words we sing. 

Hymn 

,.-, .- "The World, Dear Lord, Is Very Large," No. 72. 

The Far-away Children 

Superintendent or teacher: Now that made us think of people every- 
where. Did you think of the boys and girls, too? There are many of 
them-in those far-away lands, many of them too, right here in our 
own towiij and in our own street who do not know the Lord. Jesus 
or have a happy Church Home ;as we dp. ; _ ; 

; Today, : while we sing and pray and learn,; there are. many running 

about ;and playing and doing all kinds of. things, never thinking about 

God. or that this is His Holy Day :. many of them be,cause they do not 

: know anything about these holy things.. Way off in far-away lands 

"276 



MISSIONS 

across the ocean are thousands, in Japan, China, India, Africa, 
etc., who have never even heard of Jesus or the Heavenly Father. 

These boys and girls have churches too, but those buildings are 
not called churches but temples. In them they worship their gods. 
Some of them have a great many gods. And they put these gods in 
their temples. Such gods we call idols, because they are not the 
True God. They are very strange looking things to us. Sometimes 
they look so terrible that we wonder how anyone could even pray 
to them; and we are sure they could not love them, because they seem 
to frighten and not make one want to do things for them. 

How different these people and the boys and girls will feel when 
they hear about the Lord Jesus "Who is so good and kind and loving, 
and Who welcomes and cares for all men. Why, then they can't 
help but love Him as we do ! 

So the first thing we can do today when we think of these far- 
away little folks is to pray to the Lord Jesus for them. 

Let us all rise and do that in a hymn-prayer. 

Hymn Prayer 

"For the Far-away Children," No. 76. 

What Can I Do? 

'Superintendent or teacher: Do you think we had better sing that 
last stanza over again? or did you all think of the words as you 
sang them? Because we were praying, and they told us something, 
too. We are still such little people that we wonder what we can do 
to help others to learn about the Father's love and Jesus. But every 
day we are growing and some day we will be big enough to do things 
big people 1 do. Now while we are growing up we can learn what 
those good things are and at the same time do some things right now. 
And I am going to have one of our boys and one of our girls .tell us 
these very things. _- -'" 

Have one 'of the boys recite the following: - : 

Singing for Jesus, and trying to win . _ ., 

Ma'ny-toloVfe Him -and join in the song; 
Calling the weary and -wandering in, 

Rolling the chorus of gladness along.

Little hearts may love Thee well, 

Little lips Thy praise may tell, 

Little hymns Thy praises swell; 

Hear us, Holy Jesus. 
Being Missionaries 

Superintendent or teacher: and 

have been real missionaries. You see we don't always have to go 
far away to be one. We can be a missionary right here at home too. 

and have told us what we can 

do for Jesus and for others. First we must love Him and want to 
please Him. Then we must love others and want to bring them to 
Him. And then we must try to do that by letting others know that 
our hearts love Him, and tell about Him. Then we must pray that 
the big folks who have gone out into far-away lands will never stop 
loving and working and hunting and praying, until they have told 
everybody of Jesus' welcome. This we can do here at home by letting 
everyone know by our words and acts that we are loyal children. 
Here is the loyalty hymn. 

Hymn 

"We for Christ!" No. 137. 

Superintendent or teacher: If the men and women and the boys and 
girls, who love the Lord Jesus, do always what we have been singing, 
then the Lord Jesus will reign in the hearts of people in every land; 
and that is why He sent His disciples out that first time and has 
expected His followers to do likewise. The whole world for Jesus! 
His Triumph!

Superintendent: Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord: 
School: And the people whom He hath chosen for His own in- 
heritance. 

All: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; 
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without 
end. Amen. 

The Prayer 

AH: Our Father, we praise Thee for Thy love and thank Thee for 
Thy care. We thank Thee for this Holy Day and this Thy House. 
We thank Thee for our home and for our great, free Country. We 
thank Thee that in this Land we may pray to Thee and praise Thee. 
Help us to grow to be good and loyal men and women, ever ready to 
obey our Country's laws, and never to do anything unworthy or dis- 
honorable; for Jesus' sake. Amen. 



Hymn

NATIONAL 

Scripture 

Psalm 100 and Psalm 117, read responsively. 

Psalm 100 

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. 

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. 

Know ye that the Lord he is God : it is he that hath made us, and 
not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with 
praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 

All: For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth 
endureth to all generations. 

Psalm 117 

O Praise the Lord, all ye nations : praise him, all ye people. 
For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the 
Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord. 

Offering 
The Ensigns 

Superintendent: We boys and girls, who are part of the great Family 
of God and little citizens of our Country, possess two great ensigns 
or emblems which are very dear to us. 

The first is the ensign of our Family. (Here have one of the boys carry 
forward the Cross.} This is not a flag like other ensigns. What is its 
name? Yes, the Cross. 

Whenever we see this Holy Ensign, we think of our Lord Jesus, 
and how He suffered and died and rose from the grave, and of all 
He did for us. All this makes us love and worship Him. And the 
Cross not only reminds us of that but also tells us that we are part 
of our Heavenly Father's Family, and that He and the Lord Jesus 
love us. We should always remember this and try to be loving and 
loyal children in this Family. 

Now as (Name the boy who carries the Cross} holds 

the Cross, let us all rise and offer our praise to the Lord Jesus. Re- 
member we are not speaking to or worshiping the Cross, that would 
not be right, but to the Lord Jesus about Whom the Cross always 
tells us. 

284 



NATIONAL 

The boy carries the Cross forward; the school rises; and all say: 

We praise Thee, O Lord Jesus, Who on the Cross didst give Thyself 
for us. Amen. 

All sing: The fourth stanza of "Beautiful Saviour," No. 44. 

All seated, the boy returning the Cross to its place. 

Superintendent: I am quite sure that you all know what the other 
ensign is which we possess and treasure. Yes, our Country's Flag. 
You know every nation has its own flag. (We have some of them dec- 
orating our room today.) All the boys and girls of those nations love 
their own country's flag too. We may think ours the most beautiful 
of all; but we should rather think of the noble things for which it 
stands, and thank our Heavenly Father that we live in such a wonder- 
ful Country and enjoy so many blessings, and ask Hun to help us 
grow up to be good citizens. 

(Here another boy carries the Flag forward. As he does so, the opening 
chords of "The Star Spangled Banner" are played. The school rises, 
comes to "Attention," and sings the first stanza of the National Anthem, 
or, " There Are Many Flags," No. 206. Then the superintendent says:} 

Let us pledge our allegiance to our Country's Flag. 

All: I pledge allegiance to my Flag and to the Republic for which 
it stands; one Nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. 

All sing: "Our Country 'tis so Grand You See," No. 207. 

Story Period 

The superintendent or one of the teachers will now tell about the 
present celebration, or some Lesson Story of a patriotic character. 
This should be done for the benefit of the entire department. 

Hymn

NATIONAL 

The Blessing 

All sing: "God, the Father, bless us," No. 200. 

Praise 

All sing: "Praise God from Whom all blessings flow," No. 111. 

Note: The opportunity to observe national holidays or occasions should not be neglected 
in this department; but it should always be remembered that whatever the observance may 
be, it is being conducted in a Church School for and by children of the Church. The faithful 
Christian is a good citizen, and to teach loyalty and love for Country must be started with 
the little child, but as a natural expression of righteous and faithful living. Of course there 
are many great patriots and heroes whose lives and deeds will not only appeal to the children 
but teach them laudable things also. Emphasize those characteristics and deeds which illus- 
trate their life in God and for Him as well as for Country. 

Far excelling all these is the Example of our Blessed Lord, the Patriot of patriots, the 
Lover and Servant of His fellowmen, the Martyr for His people and God's world, but all 
the while the ever-faithful, never-forgetting Child of the Father. 

Decorate the department for the occasion. A display of the flags of other nations beside 
our own is instructive. But do not forget that when you display the Flag of the Nation, 
you must also display the Cross.

God's Sunshine and Rain

God maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth

He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers 
that water the earth. 

The school sings: "Praise the Lord for the sunshine!" No. 102, and

God's Birds and Flowers 

Another child reads: 

For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers 
appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come. 

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, 
nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are 
ye not much better than they? 

Another child: 

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the 
field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet 
I say unto you, That Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like 

one of these.
