A Confirmation Prayer

Hymn: “O Jesus, I Have Promised” (Melody: Hymn 473) (Trumpet: Cathy Augustin)
O Jesus, I have promised To serve You to the end;
Remain forever near me, My Savior and my Friend.
I shall not fear the battle If You are by my side,
Nor wander from the pathway If You will be my Guide.

O Jesus, You have promised To all who follow You
That where You are in glory Your children shall be too.
And Jesus, I have promised To love You to the end;
Oh, give me grace to follow, My Savior and my Friend.

The Lord’s Prayer And Benediction

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.
