Matthew 22:37 Love the Lord your God with all your heart soul and mind

24th Sunday After Pentecost  

Sunday, November 8, 2015 (9:00 a.m.)

Song by Choir – “Lord, Thee I Love with All My Heart” Arr. Meux
(Director: Cathy Augustin; Accompanist: Steph Mueller) 

1 Lord, Thee I love with all my heart; I pray Thee, ne’er from me depart, With tender mercy cheer me. Earth has no pleasure I would share, Yea, heav’n itself were void and bare If Thou, Lord, were not near me. And should my heart for sorrow break, My trust in Thee no one could shake. Thou art the portion I have sought; Thy precious blood my soul has bought. Lord Jesus Christ, My God and Lord, my God and Lord, Forsake me not! I trust Thy Word.

2 Yea, Lord, ’twas Thy rich bounty gave My body, soul, and all I have In this poor life of labor. Lord, grant that I in ev’ry place May glorify Thy lavish grace And help and serve my neighbor. Let no false doctrine me beguile; And Satan not my soul defile. Give strength and patience unto me To bear my cross and follow Thee. Lord Jesus Christ, My God and Lord, my God and Lord, In death Thy comfort still afford.

“Create In Me” (Hymn 956)

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me,
Cast me not away from Thy presence; and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with Thy free spirit.
