Offertory: God So Loved the World – Carl Nygard

God so loved the world that he gave His only Son.
God so loved the world that everyone who would believe
In His only Son, shall have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world.
But God so loved the world that through His Son
The world might be saved.

John 3:16

I Will Lift Up My Eyes Unto the Hills
– Ralph Vaughan-Williams
Richard Seymour, Baritone Soloist

I will lift up my eyes unto the hills,
from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh even from the Lord,
who have made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved;
he that keepeth thee, shall not sleep!
Behold he that keepeth thee shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord himself is thy keeper;
He shall preserve thee from all evil.
Yea, it is even he who shall keep thy soul from this time forth forevermore.
Psalm 121
