Sing Hymn LSB 947, V 1: All Glory Be to God on High Hymnary.org link

♫  All glory be to God on high  And thanks for all His favor;
No harm can touch or terrify  A child of God forever.
God shows His good and gracious will
And grants His peace, the world to fill – All strife at last has ended.

The Scripture Reading – 2 Timothy 1 Excerpts

The inspired counsel and encouragement of the Apostle Paul to young Pastor Timothy could well have been spoken to every faithful Christian pastor and to every member of His flock – Out of love for our Savior and one another, we testify to God’s grace in Christ Jesus and seek to guard the truths of His Word that have been deposited in our hearts. In this highest of callings we ever seek to serve and seek God’s approval alone.

The Apostles Creed (Inside Back Cover Of Hymnal)

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 Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven And sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.

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 temptation. But deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
