HYMNAL and LITURGIES 

of the 
MORAVIAN CHURCH 










Published by the Authority of the 

Provincial Synods of the Moravian 

Church in America 



"The hymnal is a kind of response to the Bible, an echo and an extension thereof. 
In the Bible one perceives how the Lord communicates with mankind ; and in the hymnal, 
how mankind communicates with the Lord." 

— Nicholas Ludwig von Zinzendorf

The 1969 hymnal stands firmly within the heritage of the Unitas Fratrum, 
which published in Prague in 1501 what is considered to be the first Protestant 
hymnal. This new hymnal is, therefore, the most recent American phase in the 
ongoing renewal of the unique heritage of hymnody and worship reflected 
throughout the long history of the worldwide Moravian Church. 

In comparison with the hymnal of 1923, the number of hymns has been 
reduced, many having been eliminated because they were not being used. The 
new hymnals of the British, German, and Czechoslovakian provinces of the 
Unity have yielded a number of selections. Sustained efforts likewise have been 
made to move within the mainstream of American Christianity by following 
the trends in new hymnals of leading denominations. Careful consideration has 
been given to contemporary hymn-writers and composers. 

All decisions on music have been governed by a three-fold goal — to enrich 
the main body of traditional Moravian tunes, to increase the number of standard 
tunes of the Christian Church, and to provide a variety of tunes from the major 
periods of hymn-tune writing through the centuries. The association of certain 
tunes with particular hymns has been respected, except for providing a greater 
variety of tune usage or giving more effective expression to the text. 

Of the almost four hundred tunes, one-third have been long associated 
with Moravian worship. Most of the chorales remain in the traditional style, 
established by Christian Gregor in his Choralbuch der Evangelischen Bruederge- 
meine of 1784. The twelve originating in Herrnhut can be identified in the 
index. For the first time in an American Moravian Hymnal, some chorales 
appear in their original melodic or rhythmic versions as used in other denomi- 
nations. Other new material includes eighteen chorales: nine re-discovered tunes 
by Moravian composers, and from the Bohemian Brethren (Unitas Fratrum) 
nine tunes in modal harmonizations in keeping with their times. 

The main body of general tunes of the 1923 Hymnal has been strengthened 
by the addition of forty-five tunes, from various periods of hymn-tune writing, 
which are in current use in other Protestant denominations. Words are printed 
between the staves of the music, in line with the prevailing practice in American 
hymnals. Historical data relating to each hymn-tune have been carefully verified. 

Hymns have always had a way of leaping established barriers and promoting 
Christian unity. Through pre-reformation hymns lost in Catholic worship and 
more recently restored, Protestants have enriched contemporary Roman Catholic 
worship. Similarly the great hymns of the Mother Church of Western Chris-

Lord, make us one in spirit with all Thy children as we profess our faith, 
saying: 

/ 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 Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, ivas 
crucified, dead and buried. He went to the place of departed spirits. 
The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven 
and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence 
He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. 1 believe in the Holy 
Spirit; the holy Christian Church; the communion of saints; the for- 
giveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. 
Amen.

From all sin, from all error, from all evil, 

Preserve us, gracious Lord and God. 

From famine and disease, from calamity by lire or flood, storm or earth- 
quake, from needless perplexity, from the selfish desire of becoming great, 
from hypocrisy and fanaticism, from envy, hatred, and malice, from the deceit- 
fulness of sin, from the murdering spirit and devices of Satan, from the influ- 
ence of the spirit of the world, 

Preserve us, gracious Lord and God. 



The Litany 

By Thy holy incarnation and birth, by Thy baptism, fasting, and temptation, 
by ail the merits of Thy perfect life before God and man, 

Bless and comfort us, gracious Lord and God. 

By Thine agony and bloody sweat, by Thy cross and passion, by Thine atoning 
death, by Thy triumphant resurrection and ascension, by Thy sending the 
Holy Spirit, by Thy prevailing intercession, by the holy sacraments, by Thy 
coming again to Thy Church on earth, or our being called home to Thee, 

Bless and comfort us, gracious Lord and God.

Thou Head and Saviour of Thy body, the Church, unite all the children of 
God in one spirit; send faithful laborers into Thy harvest; give spirit and 
power to preach Thy word ; put far from Thy people all who deceive ; bring 
back all who have gone astray; defeat the evil designs of those who oppose 
and persecute Thy Church, and turn them from the error of their ways. 

Hear us. gracious Lord and God. 



The Litany 

Grant love and unity to all our congregations ; give to our bishops and 
ministers soundness of doctrine and holiness of life, and preserve them therein ; 
help all elders to rule well ; and may every 'steward of things spiritual or 
temporal be faithful, not only in that which is much, but also in that which 
is least. Grant that all of us may enjoy the powerful and sanctifying merits of 
Thy holy humanity, and live before Thee in holiness and righteousness all 
our days. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

Supply, O Lord, we pray Thee, all the needs of Thy people; bless the sweat 
of the brow and faithfulness in our daily tasks ; let none entangle himself with 
the affairs of this life, but may all our labor of body and mind be hallowed 
unto Thee ; help us to use Thy gifts aright, and never to forget that it is more 
blessed to give than to receive; sanctify our homes with Thy presence; enable 
us to bring up our children to love and serve Thee. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

O Lord, the hope of Israel, bring Thine ancient covenant people to own 
Thee as the Christ, and endow Islam with the knowledge of Thy truth. 
Thou light and desire of all nations, prosper the witness of Thy servants till 
every tongue confess Thee as Lord. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

Watch graciously over all governments ; let Thy will be known and done 
among the nations ; establish them in truth and righteousness, and give them 
thoughts of peace. Deliver us from the sins which give rise to war and conflict, 
and strengthen within our hearts the will to establish righteousness and justice 
in the earth. Bless with Thy light and wisdom those who bear office in our 
land, and grant us to lead under them a quiet and peaceable life, in all godliness 
and honesty. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

O Thou preserver of men, we commend to Thy care and keeping those of our 
congregation who are absent from us today ; watch over Thy people who travel 
by land, sea, or air; send help to all who are in danger, tribulation, or distress; 
strengthen and uphold those who suffer persecution for the sake of the gospel ; 
defend and provide for all who are desolate and afflicted ; be the support of the 
aged ; lay Thy hand in blessing and healing upon the sick, and in the midst of 
suffering let them feel that Thou lovest them ; enable the dying to put their trust 
in Thee, as the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

Have mercy, O God, on Thy whole creation ; hasten the day when the 
kingdom of the world shall become the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ; 
and may we be accounted worthy to stand before Him.

LITURGY OF CONFESSION 

The Lord is in His holy temple, let all the earth keep silence before Him. 
The mighty God, even the Lord, has spoken, and called the earth from the 
rising of the sun unto the going down thereof. Out of Zion, the perfection 
of beauty, God has shined. 

Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and bless the Lord. Stand up and 
bless the Lord your God forever and ever.

Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at His holy hill: for the Lord our 
God is holy. 

But who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord.'' Or who shall stand 
in His holy place? 

He who has clean hands and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul 
unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 

// we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is 
not in us. 

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and 
to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If any man sin, we have an advocate 
with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He is the atoning sacrifice 
for our sins: 

And not for ours only, but also for the sins of the ivhole world. 

Drawing near in full assurance of faith, let us confess our sins, and present 
our supplication before the Lord our God. 



Liturgy of Confession 



Let us pray:

Thou high and lofty One, Who inhabitest eternity, Whose Name is holy, 
Who dwellest in the high and holy place, but with him also who is of a con- 
trite and humble spirit, give us grace to bring Thee the sacrifice of a broken 
and contrite heart, which Thou, O God, dost not despise. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

Lord God, merciful and gracious, long suffering, and abundant in goodness 
and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression 
and sin, and Who will by no means forgive the unrepentant ; incline Thine 
ear and hear ; for we do not offer our supplications before Thee relying on our 
own goodness, but on Thy great compassion. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

Create in us a clean heart, O God ; and renew a right spirit within us. Re- 
store unto us the joy of Thy salvation ; and uphold us with Thy free spirit. 
Have mercy upon us, according to Thy loving-kindness ; according to the multi- 
tude of Thy tender mercies, blot out our transgressions, through Jesus Christ, 
our Saviour. 

Lord, have mercy upon us. Amen. 

Thus saith the Lord: I will be merciful to your iniquities, and your sins will 
I remember no more. Peace be unto you.

transgressors shall fall therein. 

From the sin of unbelief, from all defilement of the flesh and spirit, from all

selfishness, from lukcwarmness in our love to Thee and our neighbor, from

Liturgy of Trust 

And you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith ; pray in the 
Holy Spirit ; keep yourselves in the love of God ; wait for the mercy of our 
Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 

The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who 
fear Him, and His righteousness unto children 's children, to those who keep 
His covenant, and remember His commandments to do them. 

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding 
in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labor is not in 
vain in the Lord. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, you shall receive 
an unfading crown of glory.

Thou Father of mercies, and God of all comfort. 

Thou hast chosen us in Jesus Christ, our Lord, before the foundation of the 
world. 

Thou hast delivered us from the power of darkness, and hast translated 
us into the kingdom of Thy dear Son. 

Thou hast blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. 

Thou hast made us worthy to share in the inheritance of the saints in 
light.

To Thee be glory at all times, in the Church which waits for Thee, and 
in that which is around Thee, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen. 

Jesus Christ is the eternal Word, Who was made flesh and dwelt among us. 

Those who were His beheld His glory, the glory of the Only Begotten 
of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

In Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. He is the true God 
and eternal life. 

He has reconciled all things unto God, ivhether things on earth, or things 
in heaven, 

And has made peace through the blood of His Cross. 

Wherefore God has highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which 
is above every name.

/ believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, 
and of all things visible and invisible: 

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of 
His Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very 
God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by Whom 
all things were made: Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down 
from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary, and 
was made man, and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suf- 
fered and was buried, and the third day He rose again, according to the 
Scriptures: and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the 
Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and 
the dead: Whose kingdom shall have no end. 

And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, Who pro- 
ceedeth from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son together is wor- 
shiped and glorified, Who spoke by the prophets. And I believe in one holy 
Christian and Apostolic Church. I ackuoivledge one baptism for the remis- 
sion of sins, and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the 
nor Id to come. Amen.

11 All shall be seated. 

Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord. 
Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with their whole 
heart. 

O that my ways may be steadfast in keeping Thy statutes. Then I shall 
not be put to shame, having my eyes fixed on all Thy commandments. 

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 forever ; 

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 honey-comb. Moreover, by them is Thy servant warned ; 
and in keeping them there is great reward. 

Lead me in the path of Thy commandments, for therein do I delight. 
Make Thy face to shine upon me, and teach me Thy statutes. 

God spoke these words, saying: 

Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. 

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image. 

Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain. 

Remember the sabbath day to keep it holy. 

Honor thy father and thy mother. 

Thou shalt not kill. 

Thou shalt not commit adultery. 

Thou shalt not steal. 

Thou shalt not bear false ivitness against thy neighbor. 

Thou shalt not covet anything that is thy neighbor's. 

Our Lord Jesus Christ said: A new commandment I give unto you, that you 
love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 
By this shall all men know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one 
another. And again He said: If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. 

/ will meditate on Thy precepts and have respect unto Thy ways. I will 
delight in Thy statutes: I will not forget Thy Word.

When Thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death, Thou didst open the

I believe in the name of the only-begotten Son of God, by Whom are all 
things, and we through Him. I believe that He was made flesh, and dwelt 
among us ; and took on Him the form of a servant ; by the overshadowing of 
the Holy Spirit was conceived of the Virgin Mary; as the children are partakers 
of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; was born 
of a woman; and being found in fashion as a man, was tempted in all points 
like as we are, yet without sin. 

This I verily believe. 

He is the Lord, the Messenger of the covenant, in Whom we delight. He 
spoke that which He knew, and testified to that which He had seen. 

As many as received Him, to them He gave power to become the children 
of God. 

Let not your heart be troubled: believe in God, believe also in Me. In 
My Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told 
you; for I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for

you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there 
you may be also. 

Even so come, Lord Jesus. 

The Lord will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the 
archangel, and with the trump of God, to judge both the quick and the dead. 
For the hour is coming, in which all who are in the graves shall hear His 
voice, and shall come forth to judgment. Then shall He sit upon the throne 
of His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, and before Him shall be 
gathered all nations. 

But who may abide the day of His coming? And who shall stand when 
He appears?

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, Who was, and is, and is to come. 

Behold, the Lord God will come with a strong hand, and His arm shall 
rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him, and His ivork before Him. 

Since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. Then comes 
the end, when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the 
Father ; when He shall have put down all rule, and all authority, and power. 
For He must reign, till He has put all enemies under His feet. And when all 
things are subjected unto Him, then shall God be all in all. 

This I most certainly believe.

For unto us a Child is born, 

Unto us a Son is given. 

God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whosoever 
believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent 
not His Son into the world to condemn the world ; but that the world through 
Him might be saved. 

Thanks be to God for His Gift beyond words. 

Mine eyes have seen Thy salvation, 

Which Thou hast prepared before the face of all people.

Glory be to Thee, Lord God our Father, Who hast chosen us in Jesus Christ, 
our Lord, before the foundation of the world. 

Behold, what manner of love, O Father, Thou hast bestowed upon us, 
that we should be called the sons of God! 

Thou hast blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. 

Thou hast delivered us from the poiver of darkness, and hast translated 
us into the kingdom of Thy dear Son. 

O Thou Who art the one God and Father of all, Who hast redeemed us 
through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, we beseech Thee, quicken us who have been 
dead in trespasses and sins. 

For the sake of that great love whereivith Thou hast loved us, make us 
to live in Christ, our Lord. 

O Immanuel, Thou Saviour of the world, 

Manifest Thyself to us. 

By Thy holy incarnation, by Thy human birth, by Thy pure and blameless 
childhood, by Thine obedience and diligence, by Thy humility, meekness, and 
patience, by Thine extreme poverty, by Thy griefs and sorrows, by Thy prayers 
and tears, by Thy having been despised and rejected, by Thy cross and passion, 
by Thy death and burial, by Thy triumphant resurrection and ascension, 

Help us and save us. 

God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in 
our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face 
of Jesus Christ. 

May we all, beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, be changed 
into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 

If All shall stand.

Behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people; but 
the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee. 

This is a faithful saying and worthy of full acceptance: that Christ Jesus 
came into the world to save sinners. 

God has highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every 
name, that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven, on earth, 
and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to 
the glory of God the Father. 

Arise, shine: for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen

If All shall kneel. The minister shall offer prayer, after which all shall stand. 

I believe in the One only God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Who created 
all things by Jesus Christ, and was in Christ, reconciling the world unto 
Himself. I believe in God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has 
chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world; Who has delivered 
us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of 
His dear Son; Who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly 
places in Christ; Who has made us worthy to share in the inheritance of the 
saints in light, having predestined us unto the adoption of children by Jesus 
Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of 
the glory of His grace, wherein He has made us accepted in the Beloved. 

This I verily believe. 

We thank Thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because Thou hast 
hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto 
babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Thy sight. Father, glorify 
Thy Name. 

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 ns this day our 
daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who tres- 
pass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from 
evil: for Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever 
and ever. Amen. 



If All shall lie seated. 

I believe in the name of the only-begotten Son of God, by Whom are all 
things, and we through Him. I believe that He was made flesh, and dwelt 
among us; and took on Himself the form of a servant; by the overshadowing 
of the Holy Spirit was conceived of the Virgin Mary; as the children are 
partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself took part of the same; was 
born of a woman ; and being found in fashion as a man, was tempted in all 
points like as we arc, yet without sin. For He is the Lord, the Messenger of 
the covenant, in Whom we delight. The Lord and His Spirit have sent Him 
to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. He spoke that which He knew, 
and testified to that which He had seen. As many as received Him. to them He- 
gave power to become the children of God. Behold the Lamb of God, Who 
takes away the sin of the world : suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, 
dead and buried; went also by the Spirit and preached unto the spirits in 
prison; the third day rose again from the dead, and with Him many bodies 
of the saints who slept; ascended into heaven, and sits on the throne of the 
Father; whence He will come, in like manner as He was seen going into heaven.

The Lord will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the 
archangel, and with the trump of God, to judge both the living and the dead. 
This is my Lord, Who redeemed me, a lost and undone human creature, pur- 
chased and gained me from sin, from death, and from the power of the devil ; 
not with gold or silver, but with His holy, precious blood, and with His 
innocent suffering and dying; to the end that I should be His own, and in His 
kingdom live under Him and serve Him in eternal righteousness, innocence, 
and happiness ; even as He, being risen from the dead, lives and reigns, world 
without end. 



This I verily believe. 



56 



Easter Morning 

Lord Jesus Christ, Who didst come at the first in great humility as our 
Redeemer, grant, we pray Thee, that when Thou shalt come again in glorious 
majesty to judge the living and the dead, we may be accounted worthy to 
stand before Thee. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

1 believe in the Holy Spirit, Who proceeds from the Father, and Whom 
our Lord Jesus Christ sent, after He went away, that He should abide with 
us forever ; that He should comfort us, as a mother comforts her children ; 
that He should help our infirmities, and make intercession for us with groan- 
ings which cannot be uttered; that He should bear witness with our spirit, 
that we are the children of God, and teach us to cry, Abba, Father; that He 
should shed abroad in our hearts the love of God, and make our bodies His 
holy temple; and that He should work in us the will of God, dividing His 
gifts to each one even as He will. 

I believe that by my own reason and strength I cannot believe in Jesus 
Christ my Lord, or come to Him; but that the Holy Spirit calls me by the 
gospel, enlightens me with His gifts, sanctifies and preserves me in the true 
faith ; even as He calls, gathers, enlightens, and sanctifies the whole Church 
on earth, which He keeps by Jesus Christ in the only true faith ; in which 
Christian Church, God forgives me and every believer all sin daily and 
abundantly. 

This I verily believe. 

O Spirit of grace, direct our hearts into the love of God, and into patient 
waiting for Christ. Establish Thou us in the faith, that we may abound therein 
with thanksgiving, and seal our hearts unto the day of redemption. 

To Thee be glory, with the Father, and with the Sou. Amen. 



<i All shall stand. 

I believe that by holy baptism I am embodied a member of the Church of 
Christ, which He has loved, and for which He gave Himself, that He might 
sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word. 

In this communion of saints my faith is placed upon my Lord and Saviour 
Jesus Christ, Who died for me, and shed His blood on the cross for the 
remission of sins, and Who has granted unto me His body and blood in the 
Lord's Supper, as a pledge of grace; as the Scripture says, Our Lord Jesus 
Christ, the same night in which He was betrayed, took bread, and, when He 
had given thanks, He broke it, and gave it to His disciples, and said: Take, 
eat; this is My body which is given for you. This do in remembrance of Me. 



57 



Easter Morning 

After the same manner also, our Lord Jesus Christ took the cup, when He had 
supped, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink of it, all of you; 
this is My blood, the blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for you and 
for many, for the remission of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in 
remembrance of Me. 



This I verily believe.

I have a desire to depart, and to be with Christ, which is far better ; I shall 
never taste death; yea, I shall attain unto the resurrection of the dead; for 
this perishable body must put on an imperishable form and this dying body 
a deathless form ; my flesh shall rest in hope. And the God of peace, Who 
brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, 
through the blood of the everlasting covenant, shall also quicken these our 
mortal bodies, if the Spirit of God has dwelt in them. 

We poor sinners pray: hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

Keep us in everlasting fellowship with those of our brethren and sisters 
who, since last Easter Day, have entered into the joy of their Lord, and with 
the whole Church Triumphant, and let us rest together in Thy presence from 
our labors. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God.

Easter 

He was delivered for our offenses: 

And was raised again for our justification. 

Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? 

7/ is God Who justifies. 

Who shall separate us from the love of God ? Shall tribulation, or distress, 
or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword ? 

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors, through Him 
Who loved us. 

For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, 
nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. 

Nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able 
to separate us from the love of God, in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

Easter 

If you then be risen with Christ, seek the things that are above, where 

Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are 

above, not on things that are on the earth. For you have died, and your life 
is hid with Christ in God. 

When Christ Who is our life appears, then we also will appear with 
Him in glory. 

None of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. If we live, 
we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. 

Whether we live or whether we die, ive are the Lord's. For to this end 
Christ died, rose, and lives again, that He might be Lord both of the dead 
and of the living. 

We would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are 
asleep, that you may not grieve, as others do who have no hope. 

For since ive believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through 
Jesus, God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep. 

As we have borne the likeness of him who came from the dust, so shall we 
bear the likeness of Him Who came from heaven. 

For this perishable body of ours must put on an imperishable form, and 
this dying body, a deathless form. 

What is sown as perishable, 

Is raised imperishable; 

What is sown in dishonor, 

Is raised in glory; 

What is sown in weakness, 

Is raised in power; 

What is sown a physical body, 

Is raised a spiritual body. 

Then shall come to pass the saying that is written: Death is swallowed up 
in victory. 

Thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus 
Christ.

Seeing that we have a great High Priest, Who has passed into the heavens, 
Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not a 
High Priest Who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but One Who 
in every respect was tempted as we are, yet without sin. 

We will with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may 
receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need. 

Thus saith the Lord: I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. 
To him who is athirst I will give of the water of life freely. He that over- 
cometh shall inherit all things ; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son. 

Therefore with, angels and archangels, and with all the company of 
heaven, we laud and magnify Thy glorious Name, evermore praising Thee, 
and saying, Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts, heaven and earth are 
full of Thy glory: glory be to Thee, O Lord Most High. Amen.

upon all flesh. 

All who call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved. 

If All shall be seated.

Pentecost 

fohn truly baptized with water ; but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit. 

Unless we are born of water and of the Spirit, we cannot see the kingdom 
of God. 

Christ said: It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, 
the Comforter will not come unto you: but if I depart, I will send Him unto 
you. 

And now has the Father sent the Comforter, even the Spirit of truth, to 
convince the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. You are 
not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if it be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. 

// we bare not the Spirit of Christ, we are none of His. 

If Christ is in us, though the body is dead because of sin, the spirit is alive 
because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Christ 
dwells in us, He Who raised Him up from the dead shall also quicken our 
mortal bodies by His Spirit Who dwells in us. 

Hereby tie know that Christ abides in us, by the Spirit Whom He has 
given us.

Thou dost bear witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and

O Spirit of grace, direct our hearts into the love of God, and into patient 
waiting for Christ. 

Establish us in the faith, that we may abound therein with thanksgiving; 
and seal our hearts unto the day of redemption. 

To Thee be glory, with the Father, and with the Son,

Church, in the communion of the saints, at all times, and from eternity

of Christ unto our hearts. Teach us to call Jesus our Lord ; and help us to 
cry, Abba, Our Father, that we may have access to the throne of grace with 
all confidence and joy. 

Bear witness with our spirits that we are the children of God, and joint- 
heirs with Christ. 

Enlighten us with Thy light, and lead us into all truth, that we may know 
the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge. 

Constrain us by faith and love to be obedient unto Thee, that we may not 
grieve Thee; for by Thee we are sealed to the day of redemption. 

In our weakness, when we know not how to pray as we ought, make inter-

Endow us with strength and gifts in Christ Jesus ; and change us into His

praise of His grace.

Behold, a great multitude, which no man can number, out of every nation 
and of all tribes, and peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and 
before the Lamb, arrayed in white robes, and palms in their hands, 

And they cry with a great voice, saying: Salvation unto our God, Who 
sitteth on the throne, and unto the Lamb. 

These are they of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in 
deserts and mountains and caves, and the holes of the earth. They were stoned, 
they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword, they were 
burned at the stake. They were destitute, afflicted, ill-treated. 

These are those who came out of great tribulation, and they washed their 
robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 

Therefore they are before the throne of God, and they serve Him day 
and night in His temple. 

They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more ; the sun shall not strike 
them, nor any scorching heat ; for the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be 
their Shepherd., and He will guide them unto springs of living water. 

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, we offer unto Thee our hearty thanks 
and praise, for the holy lives of all Thy servants, the prophets, apostles, and 
martyrs, who have shone forth as lights in the world, and sacrificed their lives 
in testimony of their faith. We thank Thee for the blessed communion of all 
Thy saints in glory. 

We remember before Thee all who have departed this life in the true faith, 
and especially those most dear to us. We rejoice in our present fellowship with 
them, our abiding hope, and the promise of future joy. 

Let the great cloud of witnesses, the innumerable company of those who 
have gone before and entered into rest, be to us an example of godly life. 
May we, with patience, run the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, 
the Author and Finisher of our faith ; and obtain an entrance into the everlasting

Thou Omniscient Creator, with Whom is wisdom and might, counsel and 
understanding, Who art perfect in knowledge, and from Whom cometh every 
good gift and every perfect gift, we praise Thee for the wisdom, power, and 
love displayed in the heavens above, in the earth beneath, and in man, whom 
Thou hast made to have dominion over the works of Thy hands. 

Glory be to Thee, O Lord. 

Thou Light of the World, Thou Teacher come from God, Incarnate Word, 
Eternal Truth, we praise Thee that Thou art come to be a light unto those who 
sit in darkness, and that Thou hast called us to the life of the children of light. 

Glory be to Thee, O Lord. 

Thou divine Spirit, our Helper and our Strength, we praise Thee for re- 
vealing unto men the deep things of God, dividing Thy gifts to each one even 
as Thou wilt, witnessing with our spirit that we are children of God, and leading 
us in the path of the wisdom from above. 

Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

Let us pray: 

O gracious God, Who wouldst have all men to come to a knowledge of 
Thyself as revealed in Christ Jesus, our Lord: 

We remember before Thee, on this day, every educational enterprise estab- 
lished for the instruction and care of children and youth, in this and other lands: 
public and private schools, colleges, universities, and theological seminaries. 
Enlighten and inspire, by Thy Holy Spirit, all who serve in them to receive 
instruction in wise dealing, righteousness, justice, and equity. 

Command Thy blessing upon the schools and colleges of our Church. May 
all who teach therein themselves be taught by Thee. Give to our trustees and 
administrators the wisdom and courage which so great a work demands. Should 
Thy servants, in weakness of flesh and spirit, be tempted to doubt and dis- 
couragement, do Thou comfort and strengthen them. 

We commend to Thee the whole educational work of the Church in our 
congregations at home and abroad. Assist parents to bring up their children 
in the nurture and admonition of the Lord by prayer, instruction, and example. 
Touch, by Thy Spirit, the minds and lives of pastors and teachers, so that they

may lead our children unto that knowledge which is able to make them wise 
unto salvation. 

Hear us, and help us, ive beseech Thee. 

We commend unto Thee the children and youth of our homes and schools. 
Arouse them to diligence in the morning of life. Fill them with the spirit of 
honor and reverence. Preserve them in honesty and integrity. Keep them in 
purity and health. 

Do Thou guide them: 

In the search of the Scriptures, 

In the study of Thy wondrous works, 

In the pursuit of truth, 

In all their thoughts, words, and deeds. 

And may the example of their Saviour: 
In His innocent childhood and youth, 
In His willing obedience, 
In His unselfish service to His fellowmen, 
In His perfect pattern in life and death, 
be their constant inspiration. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

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 ive forgive those who tres- 
pass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: 
for Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. 
Amen.

The Lord said in His heart: While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, 
and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night, shall not cease. 

Has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He 
not make it good? 

He prepares rain for the earth, and makes it soft with showers, and blesses 
the springing thereof. 

He causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and herbs for the service of 
man, that he may bring forth food out of the earth. 

Let us fear the Lord our God, Who gives us the former and latter rain in 
its season, and reserves unto us the appointed weeks of harvest. 

O Lord, how manifold are Thy works! In wisdom hast Thou made them 
all: The earth is full of Thy riches.

1 Praise to God, im - mor-tal praise, For the love that crowns our days! 

2 All the bless-ings of the fields, All the stores the gar - den yields^ 




Boun-teous Source of ev-ery joy, Let Thy praise our tongues em- ploy. 
All to Thee, our God, we owe, Source whence all our bless-ings flow. 




Bless the Lord, O my soul ; and all that is within me, bless His holy Name. 

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits. 

He redeems your life from destruction, and crowns you with loving-kindness 
and tender mercies ; 

He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according 
to our iniquities. 

As the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those 
who fear Him. 

As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our trans- 
gressions from us. 

The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who 
fear Him, and His righteousness unto children's children, 

To such as keep His covenant, and to those who remember His com- 
mandments to do them.

Almighty God, Thou Who art ruler of nations and to Whose gracious 
providence we owe the manifold blessings of our land, 

We worship Thee with grateful hearts. 

We confess that, in many things, we have departed from Thy precepts and 
from Thy judgments, and it is of Thy mercies that we are not consumed. To 
Thee belong mercies and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Thee ; 
neither have we obeyed Thy voice, O Lord our God, to walk in Thy laws, 
which Thou hast set before us. 

Lord, have mercy upon us, and pardon our transgressions. 

Bless, O Lord, we pray Thee, all who are in places of authority. Protect 
them from violence, and fill the hearts of the people with reverence and love 
for those who, as the ministers of God, have been set for the punishment of 
evil-doers and the praise of those who do well. Raise up for us leaders who 
shall perform Thy pleasure, and, in patience and fortitude, shall stay them- 
selves upon Thee, O God. 

Save Thy people and bless Thine inheritance.

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

Safeguard, we beseech Thee, Thy holy day of rest and the sacred institution 
of the home; grant that all who are employed in the education of youth may 
recognize that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom ; and turn Thou 
the hearts of all people unto Thee that they may seek eternal life through 
Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

Grant unto those who are of the household of faith, wisdom, that, as citizens 
of this nation, they may adorn the gospel in all their works. Enable them to 
submit to every ordinance of man for Thy sake, ready for every good work, 
abstaining from every form of evil and rendering unto all their dues. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

Grant unto the people of this and all other lands a love of peace and order,

Hear my cry, O God ; attend unto my prayer. 

From the end of the earth will I cry unto Thee, when my heart is over- 
whelmed. 

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 

For Thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. 

Hear the word of the Lord: I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to 
profit, Who leads you in the way you should go. O that you had hearkened to 
My commandments ! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your 
righteousness like the waves of the sea. Stand by the roads and look and ask 
for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, and you shall find rest 
for your souls. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his

to his own way. We have sinned and have committed iniquity, and have 
done wickedly. The good that we knew to do we have not done; and in 
all our works ive have been unprofitable servants, and have come short 
of Thy glory. Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Thy 
Name; and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for Thy Name's sake.

The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who 
fear Him, and His righteousness unto children's children, 

To such as keep His covenant, and to those who remember His com- 
mandments to do them. 

It is written in the Gospel that our Lord Jesus said, Let the little children 
come unto Me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God. 
Jesus also said, I am the door of the sheep; if anyone enters by Me, he will 
be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 

He will feed His flock like a Shepherd, He will gather the lambs in His 
arms, He will carry them in His bosom. 

Dearly beloved, baptism sets forth the saving work of Christ, whereby 
through the power of the Holy Spirit we participate in the death and resur- 
rection of our Lord, are washed from our sins, are raised into newness of 
life, are embodied in the covenant of grace, and become a part of the fellow-

Lord's redeeming work, through the faith of parents and of the Church. 

For the promise is unto us and to our children.

Sincerely believing that our Lord Jesus Christ loves this child, that He is 
ready to receive him, and to give him the blessing of eternal life, let us pray. 

If The following petitions may be used. 

O Father of all, we praise Thee for the joy and blessing that children bring 
into the home and into the world. Grant that these parents, and all who 
share in the nurture of children, may find blessing in their ministry of love. 

Heavenly Father, hear us. 

O Thou Friend of little children, keep, guard, and bless this child; by the 
guidance of Thy Spirit may he grow in strength, in beauty of character, and 
in favor with God and man. 

fesus, Saviour, hear us.

The Baptism of Children 



Holy Spirit, make all things new within us. Help us so to surrender 
ourselves to Thy leading that we, with our children, may live together in the 
family of God to His glory. 

Holy Spirit, hear us. 

Almighty and everliving God, look mercifully upon us, and bless what we 
do in Thy Name. Grant that this child, now to be baptized, may by the 
power of the Holy Spirit grow into the likeness of his Saviour. Bring him 
to the years of discretion and lead him then to confirm the covenant we make 
for him today. Keep him faithful unto death, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 

Amen. 

If Addressing the parents and sponsors, the minister shall say: 

Do you make confession of the faith wherein this child is to be baptized: 
in God as your heavenly Father, in Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord, 
and in the Holy Spirit by Whom you are sanctified ? 

1 do. 

Do you promise, trusting in divine grace, to teach him the truths and duties 
of the Christian faith, and by prayer, instruction and example, to bring him up 
in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and in the fellowship of the Church? 

I do. 

f All shall stand. 
f Addressing the congregation, the minister shall say : 

Do you now receive this child into the fellowship of this congregation? 

We do. 

You who are baptized into Christ Jesus, how were you baptized ? 

Into His death. 

If The minister shall name the child, and pour or sprinkle water on Ms head three 

times, saying : 

Into the death of Jesus I baptize you, in the Name of the Father, and of the 
Son, and of the Holy Spirit. 

If The sponsors shall join the minister in the imposition of hands. 

Now are you embodied in the covenant of grace, therefore live, yet not you, 
but Christ live in you ; and the life which you now live in the flesh, live by 
faith in the Son of God, Who loved you, and gave Himself for you. 

The Lord bless you, and keep you ; 

The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you ; 

The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace ;

ADMISSION OF MEMBERS 

UPON PROFESSION OF FAITH 
(Confirmation, Adult Baptism, Reaffirmation of Faith) 

If The opening paragraphs and questions shall precede all receptions of members, 
and shall be followed by the appropriate reception form. 

If All shall stand. 

Almighty God, unto Whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and 
from Whom no secrets are hid, cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the 
inspiration of Thy Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love Thee, and worthily 
magnify Thy holy Name, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 

Amen. 

In many and various ways God spoke of old to our fathers by the prophets ; 
but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son. We have this word 
from Him: The Lord our God, the Lord is One, and you shall love the Lord 
your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, 
and with all your strength. This is the first and great commandment. A second 
is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two command- 
ments depend all the law and the prophets. 

Lord, hate mercy upon us, and write Thy law within our hearts. 

If Addressing the candidate (s), the minister shall say: 

You stand before God and this congregation to declare your faith in Christ, 
and your steadfast purpose to fulfill, with the help of the Holy Spirit, the duties 
to which your acceptance of the Christian call commits you. 

Do you believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker and Preserver of heaven 
and earth ? 

I do. 

Do you believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son our Lord, Who loved you and 
gave Himself for you ? 

I do. 

Do you believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the forgiveness 
of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting? 

I do. 

Do you in this faith, denying ungodliness and sinful desires, determine to 
live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world, following and 
serving Jesus Christ? 

/ do most heartily in the strength of Jesus Christ, my Lord, and of His 
Spirit. 

Is it your sincere desire to walk steadfastly in the teaching and fellowship 
of this church? 

// is.

Are you ready, in the presence of God and of this congregation, to confirm 
the covenant into which your baptism placed you, and to seal that covenant 
in the Holy Communion ; and are you resolved, by grace, cleaving to Christ 
your Saviour, to continue in this covenant and thereby exalt your Lord until 
life's end? 

/ am. 

Let us pray: 

Almighty God, Who keepest covenant with Thy people, and hast called 
and received these Thy servants in baptism as children, providing for their 
growth, enlightening their minds by Thy truth, enabling them to overcome 
self and to offer themselves to Thee, be pleased to accept the vows they now 
have made unto Thee. Let Thy fatherly hand ever be over them; let Thy 
Holy Spirit ever be with them, that they, abiding in Thee and Thou in them, 
may be fruitful unto everlasting life, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

baptism saw heaven opened, and the Spirit as a dove descending upon Him, 
look mercifully upon us, and bless what we now do in Thy Name. Grant that 
this Thy servant (s) now to be baptized into the Church, the Body of Christ, 
may, by the continual ministry of the Holy Spirit, grow into the likeness of 
his Saviour; lead him into full and effectual membership in Thy Church, and

THE SOLEMNIZATION OF MARRIAGE 

If The persons to be married shall stand before the minister with their witnesses, the 
man standing at the right hand of the woman. Then the minister shall say: 

Dearly beloved, we are here assembled, in the presence of God and these 

witnesses, to join together this man, , and this woman, , 

in holy marriage, which is blessed by our Lord Jesus Christ, governed by 
God's commandments, and is to be held in honor among all men. Therefore 
it is not to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly, but reverently, discreetly, 
and in the fear of God. 

In Holy Scripture we are taught: that marriage was instituted by God 
Himself, and is therefore an holy estate; that, according to the ordinance of 
God, a man and his wife shall be one flesh; that, under the New Covenant, 
the married state has been sanctified to be an emblem of Christ and His Church; 
that the husband, as the head of the wife, should love her, even as Christ also 
loves the Church; and that the wife be subject to her own husband in the 
Lord, as the Church is subject unto Christ; that, in consequence, Christians 
thus united together, should love one another as one in the Lord, be faithful 
one to the other, bear one another's infirmities and weaknesses, cherish one 
another in joy and sorrow, pray for and encourage one another in all things, 
and live together as heirs of the grace of life. 

Into this holy estate these two persons come now to be joined. If any man 
can show just cause why they may not lawfully be joined together, according 
to the Word of God and the laws of this State, let him now speak, or else 
forever hold his peace. 

If The minister shall say to the man, addressing him by his Christian name: 

, will you have to be your wife, to live together in the 

holy bond of marriage? Will you love her, honor her, and care for her, under 
all conditions and circumstances of life, and through the grace of God, approve 
yourself a faithful Christian husband to her so long as you both shall live? 
If this is your desire then answer and say, "I will." 

If The man shall answer : 

/ will. 

If The minister shall say to the woman, addressing her by her Christian name : 

, will you have to be your husband, to live together in 

the holy bond of marriage? Will you love him, honor him, and care for him, 
under all conditions and circumstances of life, and through the grace of God, 
approve yourself a faithful Christian wife to him so long as you both shall 
live? If this is your desire then answer and say, "I will." 

If The woman shall answer: 



116 



The Solemnization of Marriage 

/ will. 

U The man, with his right hand, taking the woman by her right hand, shall say after 

the minister : 

/, , take you, , to be my wedded wife; and I do promise 

and covenant to be your loving and faithful husband; for better, for worse; 
for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health; so long as ive both shall 
live. 

1f They shall release hands; and the woman, with her right hand, taking the man by 
his right hand, shall likewise say after the minister: 

/, take you, , to be my ivedded husband; and I do 

promise and covenant to be your loving and faithful wife; for better, for 
worse; for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health; so long as tie both 
shall live. 

1} If a ring is used, the man shall here give the ring to the woman, which the minister 
taking from her shall deliver again to the man and say : 

Take this ring and place it upon the finger of this woman and say: 

Tf The man shall repeat after the minister: 

This ring I give to you, in token and pledge of our constant faith and 
abiding love. 

1f When a second ring is used it shall be passed in reverse order, and the woman 
shall say the same words after the minister. 

Let us pray : 

Most merciful and gracious God, of Whom the whole family in heaven and 
earth is named, we thank Thee for the love with which Thou dost bind kindred 
souls together, and especially for the institution of marriage, the tenderness 
of its ties, the honor of its estate, and the sacredness of its obligations. Look 
with favor upon these, Thy servants ; sanctify and bless their union ; grant 
them grace to fulfill, with pure and steadfast affection, the vow and covenant 
made between them. Guide them together, we pray, in the way of righteous- 
ness and peace, that, loving and serving Thee, with one heart and mind, all 
the days of their life, they may be abundantly enriched by Thy grace. Vouch- 
safe unto them the guidance of Thy Holy Spirit, and teach them to do that 
which is well-pleasing in Thy sight, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

If The minister shall join their right hands and say : 

In the Name of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, I now join 
you together to live within the bonds of holy marriage, as husband and wife. 
What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder. Receive 
the blessing of the Lord. 

U The man and the woman shall kneel. 

The Lord bless you, and keep you ; 

The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you ; 
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you. and give you peace ; 
In the Name of Jesus. Amen. 

117 



THE BURIAL OF THE DEAD 

1 All shall stand. 

O Lord our God, in Whom we live, and move, and have our being, 

Have mercy upon us. 

O Lord our God, Who dost not afflict willingly, nor grieve the children of 
men, 

Leave Thy peace with us. 

O Lord our God, Who hast brought life and immortality to light through 
Jesus Christ our Saviour, 

Bless and comfort us, we humbly pray. 

Eternal Father, accept us as Thy children in Thy beloved Son, Jesus Christ, 
Who came forth from Thee, and came into the world, was made flesh, and 
dwelt among us, took on Him the form of a servant, and hath redeemed us 
lost and undone human creatures from all sin and from death, with His holy 
and precious blood, and with His innocent suffering and dying; to the end 
that we should be His own, and in His kingdom live under Him and serve 
Him in eternal righteousness, innocence, and happiness ; forasmuch as He, being 
risen from the dead, liveth and reigneth, world without end. 

Amen. 

It is appointed unto men once to die, and after this comes judgment. For 
we must all be made manifest before the judgment-seat of Christ, that each 
one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, 
whether it be good or bad. 

Our Lord has said: He that hears My word, and believes Him Who sent 
Me, has eternal life, and comes not into judgment, but has passed out of death 
into life. 

Thou Saviour of the world, so teach us to number our days, that we may 
apply our hearts unto wisdom. 

None of us lives to himself, and no man dies to himself; for whether we 
live, we live unto the Lord, and whether we die, we die unto the Lord ; 
whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's ; for to this end Christ died, 
rose, and lives again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living. 

O Lord, what wait we for? Our hope is in Thee. 

As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him. For 
He knows our frame, He remembers that we are dust. 



118 



The Burial of the Dead 

The Lord raises those who are bowed down. He relieves the fatherless and 
widow. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. 

The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who 
fear Him, and His righteousness unto children's children. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit ; 

As it ivas in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, ivorld without end. 
Amen. 

*h Then shall follow, at the discretion of the minister, a hymn, the reading of appro- 
priate passages of Scripture, the memoir, and a short discourse. 

fi The following service shall be used at the grave : 

Lord, have mercy upon us; 

Christ, have mercy upon us. 

Lord, have mercy upon us; 

Christ, hear us. 

Lord God, Father, hear us as we pray: 

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 tres- 
pass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: 
for Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. 
Amen. 

Lord God, Son, Thou Saviour of the world, 

Be gracious unto us. 

By Thy human birth, by Thy prayers and tears, by the grief and anguish 
of Thy soul, by Thy cross and passion, by Thine atoning death, by Thy rest 
in the grave, by Thy triumphant resurrection and ascension, by Thy sitting at 
the right hand of God, by Thy divine presence, by Thy coming again to Thy 
Church on earth, or our being called home to Thee, 

Bless and comfort us, gracious Lord and God. 

Lord God, Holy Spirit, 

Abide with us forever. Amen. 

I am the Resurrection and the Life, saith the Lord; he who believes in Me, 
though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever lives and believes in 
Me shall never die. Therefore, blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from 
henceforth ; yea, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors. O death. 



119 



The Burial of the Dead 

where is thy sting ? O grave, where is thy victory ? The sting of death is sin ; 
and the strength of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, Who gives us the 
victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

hope of the resurrection to eternal life of all believers, through 
our Lord Jesus Christ, Who shall change the body of our humilia- 
tion that it may be like unto His own glorious body, according 
to the mighty working whereby He is able to subdue all things 
unto Himself.) 

Keep us in everlasting fellowship with the Church Triumphant, and let us 
rest together in Thy presence from our labors. 

Hear us, gracious Lord and God. 

Glory be to Him Who is the Resurrection and the Life, Who quickens us 
while in this dying state, and, after we have obtained the true life, does not 
suffer us to die any more. 

Glory be to Him in the Church which waits for Him, and in that which is 
around Him, forever and ever. 

Amen.

The Ordination of a Deacon 



O Thou one God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who art above all 
and through all and in us all, Who hast called us to be fellow citizens with 
the saints in Thy household, 

Unto Thee be glory in the Church by Christ Jesus, throughout all ages, 
world without end. 

O Thou Head of the Church Who givest some to be apostles; and some, 
prophets ; and some, evangelists ; and some, pastors and teachers ; for the 
perfecting of the saints; endow this our brother with Thy gifts in richest 
measure, that he may labor all his life as an able minister of the new covenant 
and a good steward of the manifold grace of God, that, being faithful unto 
death, he may from Thee receive the crown of life. 

Hear us, we beseech Thee, through the effectual working of Thy power. 

O Thou divine Paraclete, Who helpest our infirmities, bestowest diversities 
of gifts, and workest all in all, dividing unto every man severally as Thou 
wilt, own what we now do and say, and endow our brother with power from 
on high for the work of his ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 

And dwell within us all, to establish us in the unity of the faith and 
of the knowledge of the Son of God. Amen.

The Ordination of a Deacon 



Brother (here shall he name him), do you believe in the truth of the Old 
and New Testaments, as inspired by the Holy Spirit? 

/ do. 

Do you trust that you have been brought by divine grace to a saving knowl- 
edge of the Lord Jesus Christ? 

This is my humble trust. 

Are you resolved to devote yourself to the work of the ministry, and to the 
service of the Lord in the Moravian Church? 

/ am. 

Will you diligently apply yourself to the study of the Holy Scriptures and 
to prayer, and declare all the counsel of God, that you may be a workman who 
does not need to be ashamed ? 

/ will, by the grace of God. 

Is it your sincere purpose to live according to the precepts of God's Word, 
and to teach nothing but the truths and doctrines contained therein, as received 
and taught in the Moravian Church ? 

It is. 

Do you promise to conform to the principles, regulations, and requirements 
of the Moravian Church, as they are laid down by her synods and constituted 
authorities ? 

This I promise to do, the Lord helping me. 

U All kneeling, the bishop shall offer prayer, invoking the blessing of the Triune God 
upon the act of ordination which is about to be performed, and upon the candi- 
date, that he may be endowed with power and unction for doing all those things 
which belong to the office of a deacon, for the edification of the Church. 

If The congregation shall stand, while the candidate remains kneeling, and the bishop 
shall lay his hands upon him and say : 

Brother (here shall he name the candidate), I ordain you to be a deacon 
of the Moravian Church in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of 
the Holy Spirit. 

The Lord bless you, and keep you ; 

The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you ; 

The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace ;

The Consecration of a Presbyter 



Father of lights, Thou Giver of every good and perfect gift, Who of Thine 
own will hast begotten us with the word of truth that we should be a kind of 
first fruits of Thy creatures, we bless Thee for the holy Christian Church, the 
Body of Christ, the fullness of Him Who filleth all in all. We thank Thee 
for the office of the ministry and for those faithful servants of Thine whom 
Thou hast called to serve Thee in it. 

Give to our bishops and ministers soundness of doctrine and holiness of 
life, and preserve them therein. 

O Christ, to Whom the Church is subject as her only Head, the First and the 
Last, we give Thee thanks for all those who have approved themselves as 
the miniscers of God by pureness, by knowledge, by long-suffering, by kindness, 
by the Holy Spirit, by love unfeigned. Bless, we beseech Thee, our brother in this 
hour as he repeats his vows and gives himself anew to prayer and to the ministry 
of the Word. Establish Thou the work of his hands upon him, that he may 
bring forth fruit and that his fruit may remain. 

Sanctify him through Thy truth. 

Thou Spirit of truth, by Whom holy men of God were moved to speak of 
old, Whose manifestation is given to every man to profit withal, assist this 
our brother to stir up the gift that is in him by the laying on of hands, granting 
him ever to evidence in his ministry the spirit of power, of love, and of a 
sound mind. 

Grant him grace to guard that which has been committed unto him. 
Amen.

The Consecration of a Bishop 



Thou high and lofty One, Who inhabitest eternity, Whose Name is holy, 
Who dwellest in the high and holy place, but with him also who is of a 
contrite and humble spirit, replenish us with Thy grace, that we may be perfect 
in every good thing to do Thy will, working in us that which is well-pleasing 
in Thy sight, through Jesus Christ, 

To Whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. 

Thou Shepherd and Bishop of our souls, the one Mediator between God 
and man, the Man Jesus Christ, the Lord of Glory, in this solemn hour we 
lift our hearts in adoration to Thee. We praise Thee that Thou dost call Thy 
followers to be co-workers with Thee in the ministry of reconciliation. We 
give Thee hearty thanks for Thy grace and favor manifested to this our brother 
in his holy calling unto this day. Bless him and sanctify him yet more, we pray 
Thee, to the end that he may feed the Church of God which Thou hast pur- 
chased with Thine own blood. Make of him in all things a true pastor of his 
brethren to Thy glory, ever an example in life and work unto those who are 
committed to his care, that, when the Chief Shepherd shall appear, he shall 
receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away. 

Glory be to Thee, O Christ. 

Thou Holy Spirit, Whom God hath given as the earnest of their inheritance 
to them that obey Him, so establish this our brother in the faith that he may 
ever abound therein with thanksgiving; make fruitful his labor, directing his 
heart into the love of God and into patient waiting for Christ. 

To Thee be the glory, with the Father and with the Son, in the Church 
which is in Christ Jesus, the holy, universal Christian Church, in the com- 
munion of the saints, at all times, and from eternity to eternity. Amen.

the ministry in general, and the duty and office of a bishop in particular, and

all kneeling, a bishop shall offer prayer, invoking the blessing of the Triune God 
upon the act of consecration which is about to be performed, and upon the bishop- 
elect, that he may be endowed with power and unction for ordaining his brethren,

office, and with wisdom and grace for edifying the Church and setting a holy 
example to her ministry. 



H The congregation shall stand, and each of the officiating bishops shall lay 
hand upon the head of the bishop-elect, who kneels before them, and the 
bishop shall say: 

Brother (here shall he name the bishop-elect), we consecrate you 
bishop of the Moravian Church, in the Name of the Father, and of 
and of the Holy Spirit. 

The Lord bless you, and keep you ; 

The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you

Lord Jesus Christ, our only Mediator with God the Father, our mighty Saviour 
and our glorious King, we humbly bow before Thee and confess our manifold 
transgressions. 

We, Thy disciples, hare oft in word and deed dishonored the holy Name 
ice bear, and have turned aside from that path of holiness and loving serv- 
ice, in which Thou hast called us to follow Thee. Pardon all our forgetful- 
ness of Thy great love and our coldness of heart, our frequent conformity 
to the ways of the world, and our failure to labor for the extension of Thy 
kingdom. 

Have mercy upon us, according to Thy loving-kindness; hide Thy face from 
our sins and blot out all our iniquities. 

Grant us, through the communion of Thy Holy Supper, the assurance of 
our pardon, a greater power of sauctipcation, a closer union with Thyself, 
and the joyous expectation of eternal life in the heavenly kingdom.

PRIVATE CELEBRATION OF THE 
HOLY COMMUNION 

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus 
Christ. Amen. 

Dearly beloved, hear the gracious promise of our Lord and Saviour: Where 
two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them; 
and His invitation, Come unto Me, all ye who labor and are heavy laden, and 
I will give you rest. 

I am the Good Shepherd ; the Good Shepherd lays down His life for the 
sheep. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me, and I 
give unto them eternal life. 

I am the Bread of life ; he who comes to Me shall not hunger, and he who 
believes on Me shall never thirst. 

It is also written: Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread, and 
drink of the cup. For if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive 
us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 

Let us unite in silent prayer. 

Silent prayer 

% After silent prayer, the minister shall offer prayer, or use the following: 

Most merciful and everdoving Saviour, at Thine invitation we come to Thee 
to receive renewed assurance of the forgiveness of our sins and of our fellow- 
ship with Thee. Conscious of our unworthiness and confessing our sins, we 
come because Thou hast wrought for us a complete redemption. Cleanse our 
hearts and lives, we beseech Thee, from all that is evil. 

Sanctify this bread, that, as we partake of it, Thy life may enter into us, life- 
eternal that triumphs over sickness and death. Bless this cup. As we drink of it, 
sanctify us by Thy grace, in body, mind and spirit. Abide Thou in us, that the 
life which we may yet live here shall be lived by faith in Thee, Who hast loved 
us and given Thyself for us. Amen. 

If The minister shall consecrate the bread. 

Our Lord Jesus Christ, the same night in which He was betrayed, took bread, 
and, when He had given thanks, He broke it, and gave it to His disciples, and 
said: Take, eat; this is My body which is given for you. This do in remembrance 
of Me. 

Silent prayer 

By Thy divine presence, by the holy sacraments, by all the merits of Thy life, 
sufferings, death, and resurrection, 

Bless and comfort us, gracious Lord and God. Amen. 



147 



Private Celebration of the Holy Communion 

11 The minister shall consecrate the cup. 

After the same manner also, our Lord Jesus Christ took the cup, when He had 
supped, gave thanks, and gave it to His disciples, saying: Drink of it, all of you; 
this is My blood, the blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for you and for 
many, for the remission of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in remem- 
brance of Me. 

Silent prayer 

O Thou Lamb of God, Who takest away the sin of the world, 

Give unto us Tby peace. Amen. 

As often as you eat this bread, and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's 
death, 

Until He come.

"To be exalted thus!"

And to obey His word; 
To love each other heartily, 
In truth and in sincerity, 
And under cross, reproach, and shame. 
To glorify His Name. 

Tl The minister shall consecrate the bread. 

Our Lord Jesus Christ, the same night in which He was betrayed, took bread,

149 



Communion Hymns 

U As the minister serves the bread, the communicants in each pew stand to receive 

it in the ungloved hand. 

Stephanos (269, C) Hymn 542 

Now another stage of travel 

Does the new year bring; 
Brother pilgrims, be of courage — 

Christ is King! 

All the way is rightly ordered, 

Though in rugged guise; 
See, His presence points the pathway — 

Christ is wise! 

Dulce Carmen (167, G) Hymn 579 

At Thy feet, our God and Father, 

Who hast blessed us all our days, 
We, with grateful hearts, would gather 

To begin the year with praise — 
Praise for light so brightly shining 

On our steps from heaven above, 
Praise for mercies daily twining 

Round us golden cords of love. 

Every day will be the brighter 

When Thy gracious face we see; 
Every burden will be lighter 

When we know it comes from Thee. 
Spread Thy love's broad banner o'er us, 

Give us strength to serve and wait, 
Till the glory breaks before us 

Through the city's open gate. 

West (582, C) Hymn 53 

My Shepherd is the Lamb, 

The living Lord, Who died; 
With all that's truly good I am 

Most plenteously supplied. 

He richly feeds my soul 

With manna from above, 
And leads me where the rivers roll 

Of everlasting love. 

150 



Communion Hymns 

When faith and hope shall cease. 

And love prevail alone, 
I then shall see Him face to face 

And know as I am known. 

Then I my Shepherd's care 

Shall praise, and Him adore, 
And in His Father's house shall share 

True bliss for evermore. 

Covenant (185, A) Hymn 570 

To the soul who seeks Him Christ is gracious; 

They who wait ne'er wait in vain, 
But experience Him a God propitious; 

He the feeble doth sustain; 
On rich pastures, hungry souls He feedeth, 
Those who thirst, to living waters leadeth, 
Hears the needy sinner's cry, 
And to help and save is nigh. 



Swabia (582, K) 



Jesus, we thus obey 

Thy last and kindest word, 
And in Thine own appointed way 

We come to meet Thee, Lord ! 

Thus we remember Thee, 

And take this bread and wine 

As Thine own dying legacy, 
And our redemption's sign. 

Thy presence makes the feast; 

Now let our spirits feel 
The glory not to be expressed, 

The joy unspeakable. 

Now let our souls be fed 
With manna from above, 

And over us the banner spread 
Of everlasting love. 

151

Pilgrimage (166, A) Hymn 54 

Ye followers of the Paschal Lamb, 

Draw near and take the cup of God; 
Approach unto the healing stream, 

And drink of the atoning blood; 
That blood for our redemption spilt, 

Assuring us of purchased grace; 
That blood which takes away all guilt, 

And speaketh to the conscience peace.

Bliss beyond compare, which in Christ I share;

Jesus is my joy, therefore blest am I; 

Oh, His mercy is unbounded, 

All my hope on Him is grounded; 
Jesus is my joy, therefore blest am I.

Dix (581, II) Hymn 94 

As with gladness men of old 
Did the guiding star behold; 
As with joy they hailed its light, 
Leading onward, beaming bright; 
So, most gracious Lord, may we 
Evermore be led to Thee. 

As they offered gifts most rare 

At that manger rude and bare; 

So may we with holy joy, 

Pure and free from sin's alloy, 

All our costliest treasures bring, 

Christ, to Thee our Heavenly King! 

Holy Jesus, every day 
Keep us in the narrow way; 
And, when earthly things are past, 
Bring our ransomed souls at last 
Where they need no star to guide, 
Where no clouds Thy glory hide. 

Ellacombe (151, R) Hymn 97 

Hail to the Lord's Anointed, 

Great David's greater Son ! 
Hail, in the time appointed, 

His reign on earth begun ! 
He comes to break oppression, 

To set the captive free, 
To take away transgression, 

And rule in equity. 

He comes with succor speedy, 

To those who suffer wrong; 
To help the poor and needy, 

And bid the weak be strong; 
To give them songs for sighing, 

Their darkness turn to light. 
Whose souls, condemned and dying, 

Were precious in His sight.

Wash your robes and make them white;

Unless Thou appease its craving;

Feed Thou me, feed Thou me. 

Holy Lord, Holy Lord, 

By Thy body given to death, 

Mortify my sinful nature, 

Till I yield my dying breath. 

Ah, protect Thy feeble creature; 

Grant that I, by nothing drawn aside, 

Thine abide. Thine abide.

Seated upon His throne; 

The angels, who before Him bow, 
His just dominion own.

Confidence (83, D) 



Hail, sacred feast which Jesus makes, 
Rich banquet of His flesh and blood! 

Thrice happy he who here partakes 

That sacred stream, that heavenly food ! 

O let Thy table honored be, 

And furnished well with joyful guests; 
And may each soul salvation see 

Who here its sacred pledges tastes. 

Refresh Thy thirsting people, Lord, 
And bid our drooping spirits live; 

And more, that energy afford 
A Saviour's love alone can give. 



Jesus, my Redeemer lives ! 

I, too, unto life must waken. 
He will have me where He is; 

Shall my courage then be shaken? 
Shall I fear? Or could the Head 
Rise and leave His members dead? 

Nay, too closely am I bound 

Unto Him, by hope forever; 
Faith's strong hand the rock hath found, 

Grasped it, and will leave it never; 
Not the ban of death can part 
From its Lord the trusting heart.

Hymn 14' 



Who can condemn, since Christ was dead, 

And ever lives to God?

Through countless choirs proclaim, 
"He hath redeemed us; praise be given 

To God and to the Lamb."

Till we in heaven shall evermore 

Exalt His Name, Amen. 

Cassel (167, A) Hymn 489 

O that such may be our union 

As Thine with the Father is, 
And not one of our communion 

E'er forsake the path of bliss; 
May our light 'fore men with brightness, 

From Thy light reflected, shine; 
Thus the world will bear us witness, 

That we, Lord, are truly Thine. 

Hus (22, F) Hymn 9 

O Christ, our true and only Light, 
Illumine those who sit in night; 
Let those afar now hear Thy voice, 
And in Thy fold with us rejoice. 

Shine on the darkened and the cold, 
Recall the wanderers to Thy fold, 
Unite those now who walk apart, 
Confirm the weak and doubting heart. 

Grafenberg Hymn 19 

Sing we the song of those who stand 

Around the eternal throne, 
Of every kindred, clime, and land, 

A multitude unknown. 

Life's poor distinctions vanish here; 

Today the young, the old, 
Our Saviour and His flock, appear 

One Shepherd and one fold. 

"Worthy the Lamb for sinners slain," 

Cry the redeemed above; 
"Blessing and honor to obtain, 

And everlasting love!"

And all my weariness upon Thee lean. 

I have no help but Thine; nor do I need 
Another arm save Thine to lean upon; 

It is enough, my Lord, enough indeed; 

My strength is in Thy might, Thy might alone. 

Mine is the sin, but Thine the righteousness; 

Mine is the guilt, but Thine the cleansing blood, 
Here is my robe, my refuge, and my peace — 

Thy blood, Thy righteousness, O Lord, my God.

Come, feed Thy congregation : 
We own the doctrine of Thy cross 

To be our sole foundation; 
Accept from every one of us 

The deepest adoration. 

O Thou, the Church's Head and Lord, 

Who as a Shepherd leadest 
Thy flock, and richly with Thy word 

And sacrament us feedest. 
What shall we say? Lost in amaze, 

Our hearts bow down before Thee; 
For none sufficiently can praise, 

Love, honor, or adore Thee. 

Dundee (14, P) Hymn 182 

Shepherd of souls, refresh and bless 

Thy chosen pilgrim-flock, 
With manna in the wilderness, 

With water from the rock. 

Hungry and thirsty, faint and weak, 

As Thou when here below, 
Our souls the joys celestial seek, 

That from Thy sorrows flow. 

Be known to us in breaking bread, 

But do not then depart; 
Saviour, abide with us, and spread 

Thy table in our heart. 

Service (56, A) Hymn 290 

They who hunger, they who hunger after Christ are fed; 

All the thirsty, all the thirsty to life's fountain led; 

He the needy doth supply 

With good things abundantly; 

From His fullness, from His fullness, they are nourish-ed. 

190 



Communion Hymns 

May we faithful, may we faithful in our service be, 

Truly careful, truly careful in our ministry; 

Keep us to Thy Church fast bound, 

In the faith preserve us sound, 

Often weeping, often weeping grateful tears 'fore Thee.

Hymn 489 



Hymn 251 



Christian hearts, in love united, 

Seek alone in Jesus rest. 
Has He not your love excited? 

Then let love inspire each breast; 
Members on our Head depending, 

Lights reflecting Him, our Sun, 
Brethren, His commands attending, 

We in Him, our Lord, are one. 

O that such may be our union 

As Thine with the Father is, 
And not one of our communion 

E'er forsake the path of bliss; 
May our light 'fore men with brightness, 

From Thy light reflected, shine; 
Thus the world will bear us witness, 

That we, Lord, are truly Thine. 

Our only stay is Jesus' grace, 

In every time and every place; 

And Jesus' blood-bought righteousness 

Remains His Church's glorious dress. 

All self-dependence is but vain. 
Christ doth our Corner-stone remain, 
Our Rock which will unshaken stay 
When heaven and earth are fled away. 

He is and shall remain our Lord, 

Our confidence is in His word; 

And, while our Jesus reigns above, 

His Church will more than conqueror prove. 

If When the bread has been served, the communicants shall stand and the minister 

shall sav : 

Our Lord Jesus Christ said, Take, eat; this is My body which is given for you. 

^| All shall partake together, after which all shall kneel.

O Gott du frommer Gott (146, c) Hymn 211 

In Thee I trust by faith, 

Jesus, my God and Saviour; 
On Thy atoning death 

My soul shall feed forever; 
Thy sufferings shall remain 

Deep on my heart impressed, 
Thou Son of God and man, 

Till I with Thee shall rest. 

Tj The minister shall consecrate the cup. 

After the same manner also, our Lord Jesus Christ took the cup, when He 
had supped, gave thanks, and gave it to His disciples, saying: Drink of it, all 
of you ; this is My blood, the blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for 
you and for many, for the remission of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, 
in remembrance of Me. 

If As the minister serves the cup, the communicants in each pew stand to receive it 

in the ungloved hand. 

Worship (159, A) Hymn 569 

All hail, our Church's Elder dear, 

Jesus, her glorious Head, 
To Thy disciples now appear 

As risen from the dead; 
Let our rejoicing souls in Thee 
The tokens of Thy passion see, 
And hear Thy gentle voice anew 
Say, "Peace be unto you." 

Remembering what our fathers told 

Thou didst in their young day, 
This solemn jubilee we hold, 

That we, as then did they, 
Ourselves in covenant may bind, 
With soul and strength, with heart and mind, 
Through life, in death, on land, o'er sea, 
Meekly to follow Thee.

Batty (16, A) Hymn 244 

Highly favored congregation, 

Loved by Jesus and esteemed, 
Ne'er forget thy destination, 

Why from this vain world redeemed. 

By love's closest bonds united, 

As the Lord's own family, 
Be to serve His Name excited, 

Be to Him a fruitful tree. 

St. Theodulph (151, G) Hymn 178 

The ground of my profession 

Is Jesus and His blood; 
He gives me the possession 

Of everlasting good. 
Myself, and whatsoever 

Is mine, I can not trust; 
The gifts of Christ, my Saviour, 

Remain my only boast. 

Innsbruck (79, A) Hymn 390 

O Fount of grace redeeming, 
O River ever streaming 

From Jesus' wounded side; 
Come Thou, Thyself bestowing 
On thirsty souls, and flowing 

Till all their wants are satisfied. 

Jesus, this feast receiving, 
Thy word of truth believing, 

We Thee unseen adore; 
Grant, when our race is ended, 
That we, to heaven ascended, 

May see Thy glory evermore. 

Agnus Christi (115, B) Hymn 36S 

How great the bliss to be a sheep of Jesus, 

And to be guided by His shepherd-staff; 
Earth's greatest honors, howsoe'er they please us, 

Compared to this, are vain and empty chaff; 
Yea, what this world can never give 
May, through the Shepherd's grace, each needy sheep receive.

Adore Thee as Thy congregation;

Be honor, power, and praise 
Now and ever;

May put our trust alone in Thee.

Christ to love and serve alone. 
O may our imperfect songs and praises 
Be well-pleasing unto Thee, Lord Jesus.

brance of Me.

Bread of Life Hymn 241 

Thou art the Bread of Life, 

O Lord, to me, 
Thy holy Word the truth 

That saveth me; 
Give me to eat and live 

With Thee above; 
Teach me to love Thy truth, 

For Thou art love. 

Bless Thou the truth, dear Lord, 

To me — to me — 
As Thou didst bless the bread 

By Galilee; 
Then shall all bondage cease, 

All fetters fall; 
And I shall find my peace, 

My All-in-all.

Hamburg (22, P) 



Communion Hymns 

Now hear me while I pray, 
Take all my guilt away, 
Oh, let me, from this day, 
Be wholly Thine. 

May Thy rich grace impart 
Strength to my fainting heart, 

My zeal inspire; 
As Thou hast died for me, 
O, may my love to Thee 
Pure, warm and changeless be, 

A living fire. 



When I survey the wondrous cross 
On which the Prince of Glory died, 

My richest gain I count but loss, 

And pour contempt on all my pride. 

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, 
Save in the death of Christ, my God; 

All the vain things that charm me most, 
I sacrifice them to His blood. 

See, from His head, His hands, His feet, 
Sorrow and love flow mingled down; 

Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, 
Or thorns compose so rich a crown? 

Were the whole realm of nature mine, 
That were a present far too small; 

Love so amazing, so divine, 

Demands my soul, my life, my all. 



Hvmn 129 



Hayn (82, D) 



Jesus makes my heart rejoice, 
I'm His sheep, and know His voice; 
He's a Shepherd kind and gracious. 
And His pastures are delicious; 
Constant love to me He shows, 
Yea, my very name He knows. 

197 



Communion Hymns 

Trusting His mild staff always, 
I go in and out in peace; 
He will feed me with the treasure 
Of His grace in richest measure; 
When athirst to Him I cry, 
Living water He'll supply. 

Should not I for gladness leap, 
Led by Jesus as His sheep ? 
For when these blest days are over, 
To the arms of my dear Saviour 
I shall be conveyed to rest; 
Amen, yea, my lot is blest. 

Holy Lord (119, A) Hymn 230 

Bread of Life, Bread of Life, 
Christ, by Whom alone we live; 
Bread that came to us from heaven; 
My poor soul can never thrive 
Unless Thou appease its craving; 
Lord, I hunger only after Thee, 
Feed Thou me, feed Thou me.

Spanish Hymn (5S1, M ) Hymn .'!4.'; 

Once again beside the cross. 
All my gain I count but loss; 
Earthly pleasures fade away, 
Clouds they are that hide my day; 
Hence, vain shadows ! Let me see 
Jesus crucified for me. 

Blessed Saviour! Thine am I, 
Thine to live, and Thine to die; 
Height, or depth, or creature power, 
Ne'er shall hide my Saviour more; 
Ever shall my glory be, 
Only, only, only Thee. 



Toplady (581, L) 



Rock of Ages, cleft for me, 

Let me hide myself in Thee; 

Let the water and the blood, 

From Thy riven side which flowed. 

Be of sin the double cure; 

Cleanse me from its guilt and power. 

Not the labor of my hands 
Can fulfill Thy law's demands; 
Could my zeal no respite know, 
Could my tears forever flow, 
All for sin could not atone; 
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

At Thy feet I bow, 
For Thy grace and tender mercy, 

Trusting now. 

I am trusting Thee for cleansing 

In the crimson flood, 
Trusting Thee to make me holy 

By Thy blood. 

Aurelia (151, L) Hymn 242 

The Church's one Foundation 

Is Jesus Christ, her Lord; 
She is His new creation 

By water and the word; 
From heaven He came and sought her, 

To be His holy Bride; 
With His own blood He bought her, 

And for her life He died. 

Elect from every nation, 

Yet one o'er all the earth, 
Her charter of salvation : 

One Lord, one faith, one birth; 
One holy Name she blesses, 

Partakes one holy food, 
And to one hope she presses, 

With every grace endued. 

Seelenbrautigam (68, A) Hymn 432 

Jesus, still lead on, 

Till our rest be won; 

And although the way be cheerless, 

We will follow, calm and fearless; 

Guide us by Thy hand 

To our fatherland.

1 We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing ; 

He chastens and hastens His will to make known ; 
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing; 
Sing praises to His Name! He forgets not His own. 



2 Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining, 
Ordaining, maintaining His Kingdom divine; 
So from the beginning the tight we were winning; 
Thou, Lord, wast at our side; all glory be Thine! 



3 We all do extol Thee, Thou Leader triumphant, 
And pray that Thou still our Defender wilt be. 
Let Thy congregation escape tribulation ; 

Thy Name be ever praised! Lord, make us free! Amen.

Through His own redeeming love, 
For that Child so dear and gentle 

Is our Lord in heaven above; 
And He leads His children on

Estranged from none by wrath or pride; 
Among ourselves at unity 

And with all else in charity.

Our hearts in steadfast hope abound; 
Till Thou our steps shalt thither bring

Joseph Grigg, 1720-1768 (1765) 



FEDERAL STREET L.M. (22, Z; 



1 Behold a Stranger at the door ! 

He gently knocks, has knocked before; 
Has waited long — is waiting still; 
You treat no other friend so ill. 



3 But will He prove a Friend indeed? 
He will, — the very Friend you need : 
The Friend of sinners — yes, 'tis He, 
With garments dyed on Calvary ! 



2 lovely attitude ! He stands 

With melting heart and laden hands : 
matchless kindness ! and He shows 
This matchless kindness to His foes. 



4 Rise, touched with gratitude divine : 
Turn out His enemy and thine, 
That soul-destroying monster, sin, 
And let the heavenly Stranger in.

A - maz - ing grace! How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me! 
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears re- lieved; 
Through man-y dan - gers, toils and snares I have al - read - y come- 
Lord has' prom-ised good to me; His word my hope se- cures;

'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home. 
He will my shield and por-tion be As long as life en-dures. A- MEN.

Horatius Bonar, 1808-1889 (1857) 



POTSDAM S. M. (582, D)

1. Not what these hands have done Can save this guilt- y soul; 

2. Not what I feel or do Can give me peace with God; 

3. Thy grace a- lone, God, To me can par - don speak; 

4. No oth- er work save Thine. No mean-er blood will do;

Not what this toil- ing flesh has borne Can make my spir- it whole. 

Not all my prayers and sighs and tears Can bear my aw-ful load. 

Thy power a -lone, Son of God, Can this sore bond-age break. 

No strength, save that which is di-vine, Can bear me safe-ly through. A-MEN.

And with unfaltering lip and heart 
I call this Saviour mine.

But the joy which He in-spir-eth, Lend-ing to His voice an ear; 

Who hut will-eth what Him pleas-es, Sim-ply fol -lowing His com-mands; 

Yea, in clos-est un - ion liv - eth With our Sav- iour, Head, and Lord; A-MEN.

5 Who in Jesus Christ abideth, 

And, from self-dependence free, 
In naught else but Him confideth 
Walks in true simplicity. 



6 He who is by Christ directed, 

Trusting the Good Shepherd's care, 
From all harm will be protected, 
And no danger needs to fear.

That we fail not man nor Thee! That we fail not man nor Thee!

Let the search for Thy salvation Be our glory evermore.

Blest Be the Day When I Must Roam 439 

(The Moravian Emigrants' Hymn) 

INNSBRUCK (79, A) No. 315 



1 Blest be the day when I must roam 
Far from my country, friends and home, 
An exile, poor and mean ; 
My fathers' God will be my Guide, 
Will angel guards for me provide, 
My soul, my soul in clanger screen. 



2 Himself Avill lead me to a spot 

Where, all my cares and griefs forgot, 
I shall enjoy sweet rest. 
As pants for cooling streams the hart, 
I languish for my heavenly part, 
For God, for God, my Refuge blest. 



This hymn is printed here for its historic interest only. The members of our Ancient Unity sang these 
words when bitter persecution compelled them to seek refuge and liberty of conscience in foreign 
countries.

To cast our hopes, to fix our eyes 
On Christ, on Christ alone ;

Though mercy long delay; 
Courage our fainting souls to keep, 
And trust Thee though Thou slay ; 

6 Give these, and then Thy will be done; 

Thus strengthened with all might, 
We, by Thy Spirit and Thy Son, 
Shall pray and pray aright.

In Jesus' keeping we are safe and they. 

5 Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown? 
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne. 

6 Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours ' 
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers. 

7 It is enough : earth's struggles soon shall cease 
And Jesus call us to heaven's perfect peace.
