HYMN How lovely is thy dwelling-place

1 How lovely is Thy dwelling place,

O Lord of hosts to me!

The tabernacles of Thy grace

How pleasant, Lord, they be!

2 My thirsty soul longs ardently,

Yea, faints Thy courts to see;

My very heart and flesh cry out,

O living God, for Thee.

3 Behold the sparrow findeth out

A house where-in to rest;

The swallow also, for herself

Provided hath a nest.

4 Even Thine own altars, where she safe

Her young ones forth may bring,

O Thou, almighty Lord of hosts,

Who art my God and King.

5 Blest are they in Thy house that dwell,

They ever give Thee praise.

Blest is the man whose strength Thou art,

In whose heart are Thy ways.

6 How lovely is Thy dwelling place,

O Lord of hosts to me!

The tabernacles of Thy grace

How pleasant, Lord, they be

PRAYER

Children’s Address

Song. Youth Praise 81 If any man will follow

If any man will follow if any man will follow

If any man will follow after my Jesus

Let him deny himself and let him take up His cross

And let him come and follow after my Lord

Whosoever will live for self will throw his life away,

Christ gives life to all who follow Him-

What is a man advantaged if he gains the whole wide world

And then loses hi soul?

If any man will follow if any man will follow

If any man will follow after my Jesus

Let him deny himself and let him take up His cross

And let him come and follow after my Lord

Whosoever will be ashamed of Jesus and His words,

In this sinful age in which we live,

Jesus the King will be ashamed of him in that great day

When in glory He comes.

If any man will follow if any man will follow

If any man will follow after my Jesus

Let him deny himself and let him take up His cross

And let him come and follow after my Lord.

Let him come and follow after my Lord.

READING PROVERBS 3 : 13-26 LIFE

13 Blessed are those who find wisdom,

those who gain understanding,

14 for she is more profitable than silver

and yields better returns than gold.

15 She is more precious than rubies;

nothing you desire can compare with her.

16 Long life is in her right hand;

in her left hand are riches and honour.

17 Her ways are pleasant ways,

and all her paths are peace.

18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;

those who hold her fast will be blessed.

19 By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations,

by understanding he set the heavens in place;

20 by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,

and the clouds let drop the dew.

21 My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,

preserve sound judgment and discretion;

22 they will be life for you,

an ornament to grace your neck.

23 Then you will go on your way in safety,

and your foot will not stumble.

24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;

when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

25 Have no fear of sudden disaster

or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,

26 for the Lord will be at your side

and will keep your foot from being snared.

Hymn O LORD, thou art my God and King

O Lord, Thou art my God and king,

And I will ever bless Thy name.

I will extol Thee every day,

And evermore Thy praise proclaim.

The Lord is greatly to be praised.

His greatness is beyond our thought.

From age to age the sons of men

Shall tell the wonders God has wrought.

Upon Thy glorious majesty

And wondrous works my mind shall dwell.

Thy deeds fill all the world with awe,

And of Thy greatness I will tell.

The Lord our God is rich in grace,

Most tender and compassionate;

His anger is most slow to rise,

His lovingkindness is most great.

The Lord is good in all His ways,

His creatures know His constant care;

To all His works His love extends,

All men His tender mercies share.

Thy works shall give Thee thanks, O Lord,

Thy saints Thy mighty acts shall show,

Till o’er the earth the sons of men

Thy kingdom, power and glory know.

Prayer

Hymn There is a Name I love to hear

1

There is a name I love to hear,

I love to sing its worth;

It sounds like music in mine ear,

The sweetest name on earth.

Oh, how I love Jesus,

Oh, how I love Jesus,

Oh, how I love Jesus,

Because He first loved me!

2

It tells me of a Saviour’s love,

Who died to set me free;

It tells me of His precious blood,

The sinner’s perfect plea.

3

It tells me what my Father hath,

In store for every day,

And though I tread a darksome path,

Yields sunshine all the way.

4

It tells of One whose loving heart

Can feel my deepest woe,

Who in each sorrow bears a part

That none can bear below.

SERMON PROVERBS 3 : 13-26 LIFE

Hymn How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

1. How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

In a believer’s ear!

It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,

And drives away his fear.

2. It makes the wounded spirit whole

And calms the troubled breast;

’Tis manna to the hungry soul,

And to the weary, rest.

3. Dear Name! the Rock on which I build,

My Shield and Hiding Place,

My never-failing Treas’ry filled

With boundless stores of grace!

4. Jesus! my Shepherd, Husband, Friend,

My Prophet, Priest, and King;

My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,

Accept the praise I bring.

5. Weak is the effort of my heart,

And cold my warmest thought;

But when I see Thee as Thou art,

I’ll praise Thee as I ought.

6. Till then I would Thy love proclaim

With every fleeting breath,

And may the music of Thy name

Refresh my soul in death.

Benediction
