Offertory: “O How Amiable Is Thy Dwelling” – Ralph Vaughan-Williams
O how amiable are thy dwellings: thou Lord of hosts!
My soul hath a desire and longing to enter into the courts of the Lord:
my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.
Yea, the sparrow hath found her a house, and the swallow a next
Where she may lay her young; even Thy altars, O Lord of Hosts.
Blessed are they that dwell in Thy house; they may be always praising Thee.
The glorious majesty of the Lord our God be upon us.
Prosper thou the work of our hands upon us, prosper Thou Thy handiwork.
Choir and Congregation:
O God our help in ages past
Our hope for years to come.
Our shelter from the stormy blast
And our eternal home.
