Prelude "Great Is Your Reward" by Roberta Rowland-Raybold
L: (1) O give thanks to the Lord, who is good,
L: Whose steadfast love endures for ever!
ALL: (2) Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
ALL: Whom the Lord has redeemed from trouble
ALL: (3) And gathered in from the lands,
ALL: From the east and from the west,
ALL: From the north and from the south.
O Holy God of Israel,
you faithfully keep the promises
you made to our ancestors
and lead your people into the future,
providing hospitality on the way.
Help us who inherit the pilgrim life
to journey faithfully at your command,
that we may be a band of disciples
called to be sojourners in your service. Amen.
