*Responsive Reading                                Psalm 51: 10 – 17                                   Led by Elaine Martin

         Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

                      Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

                      Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you.

            Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, you who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of              your righteousness.

                       Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise.

            You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.

                       My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not                                     despise.

*Hymn of Praise                                  “Living For Jesus”

                                                                                 T.O. Chisolm, C. Harold Lowden

(Please stand and join us in reading responsively the words to our hymn of praise)


Living for Jesus, a life that is true,
            Striving to please Him in all that I do;
Yielding allegiance, glad-hearted and free,
            This is the pathway of blessing for me.

Living for Jesus Who died in my place,
            Bearing on Calv’ry my sin and disgrace;
Such love constrains me to answer His call,
            Follow His leading and give Him my all.

Living for Jesus, wherever I am,
            Doing each duty in His holy Name;
Willing to suffer affliction and loss,
            Deeming each trial a part of my cross.

Living for Jesus through earth’s little while,
            My dearest treasure, the light of His smile;
Seeking the lost ones He died to redeem,
            Bringing the weary to find rest in Him.

           O Jesus, Lord and Savior, I give myself to Thee,
           For Thou, in Thy atonement, didst give Thyself for me;
           I own no other Master, my heart shall be Thy throne;
           My life I give, henceforth to live, O Christ, for Thee alone.

The Lord's 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 trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.
