Then Peter began to speak: “I now know how true it is that God does not show favoritism, but accepts men from every nation who fear Him. You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the Good News of peace through Jesus Christ, Who is Lord of all. You know how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth, Who was crucified and then raised from the dead on the third day. All the prophets testify about Him that whoever believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins through His Name.”

The Closing Hymn: “Christ, The Eternal Lord”
Words: Timothy Dudley Smith (1999)

1. Christ, the eternal Lord, Whose Promise here we claim, Whose gifts of grace are freely poured On all who name Your Name; With thankfulness and praise We stand before Your throne,
Intent to serve You all our days And make Your glory known.

2. Christ the unchanging Word To every passing age,
Whose timeless teaching still are heard Set forth on Scripture’s page;
Transform our thought and mind, Enlighten all who read,
Within Your word by faith to find The Bread of Life indeed.

3. Christ the redeeming Son, Who shares our human birth,
And by His death salvation won For ev’ry child of earth;
Inspire our hearts, we pray, To tell Your love abroad,
That all may honor Christ today And follow Him as Lord.

4. Christ the unfading Light Of everlasting day,
Our Morning star in splendor bright, The Life, the Truth, the Way.
That light of truth You give To servants as to friends,
Your way to walk, Your life to live, Till earth’s brief journey ends.

5. Christ the ascended King Exalted high above,
Whose praise unending ages sing, Whom yet unseen we love;
When mortal life is past Your voice from heaven’s throne
Shall call Your children home at last To know as we are known..
