and will bring them into their own land. And I will feed them on the mountains

THE ENSEMBLE Rescue the Perishing arr. Powell James Brown and Randal Rushing, Tenors
Tom Horner and Philip Johnson, Basses
Rescue the perishing, Care for the dying, Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
Weep oer the erring one, Lift up the fallen, Tell them of Jesus the mighty to save.
Tho they are slighting Him, Still He is waiting, Waiting the penitent child to receive;
Pray for them earnestly, Plead with them gently, He will forgive if they only believe.
Rescue the perishing, Care for the dying;
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
Down in the human heart, Crushd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore;
Touchd by a loving heart, Waked by the Spirit, Chords that are broken will vibrate once more.
Rescue the perishing, Christs Love compels it; Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide;
Back to the narrow way Patiently lead them; Tell the poor sinner, A Savior has died!
THE INVOCATION AND THE LORDS PRAYER
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 debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the kingdom, and
the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
THE GLORIA PATRI Ode to JoyGod of glory, power, mercy, all creation praises Thee;
we, Thy creatures, would adore Thee now and through eternity.Saved to magnify Thy goodness, grant us strength to do Thy will;
with our acts as with our voices Thy commandments to fulfi ll. Amen.
Please sign and pass the Friendship Pad at this time.
THE CONFESSION OF SIN
Forgive us the sins of disunity, O Lord: pride and jealousy and narrow-mindedness. Forgive us the sins of false unity: lack of imagination, apathy, and indifference. Make us one in genuine love and mutual trust. Make us many in gifts and talents and vision. Amen. The Worship Sourcebook

Awake, my heart, and render To God thy sure defender,
Thy Maker, thy preserver, A song of love and fervor.

Beginning, middle, ending, Will all be upward tending.

Thy word my nurture, givn To bring me on toward heaven.
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the fi rstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were
created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or
authorities all things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in
Him all things hold together. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the
fi rstborn from the dead, that in everything He might be preeminent. 19 For in Him all the fullness of
God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether on earth or
in heaven, making peace by the blood of His cross.
THE STATEMENT OF FAITH The Apostles Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucifi ed, dead and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He
ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall
come to judge the quick and the dead; I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the com-
munion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
