HYMN 686 Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Come, Thou fount of every blessing, 
    Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing, 
    Call for songs of loudest praise.
While the hope of endless glory 
    Fills my heart with joy and love,
Teach me ever to adore Thee, 
    May I still Thy goodness prove.

Here I raise my Ebenezer, 
    Hither by Thy help I’ve come; 
And I hope, by Thy great pleasure, 
    Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger, 
    Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger, 
    Interposed His precious blood.

Oh, to grace how great a debtor 
    Daily I’m constrained to be; 
Let that grace now like a fetter 
    Bind my wandering heart to Thee:
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it; 
    Prone to leave the God I love.
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, 
    Seal it for Thy courts above.

O, that day when, freed from sinning, 
    I shall see Thy lovely face;
Clothed then in the blood-washed linen, 
    How I’ll sing Thy wondrous grace!
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry; 
    Take my ransomed soul away;
Send Thine angels soon to carry 
    Me to realms of endless day.

Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! 11 Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? 12 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Pastor: This is the Word of the Lord.
Congregation: Thanks be to God.

Mark 10:6-9

[Jesus answered them,] “From the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

Pastor: This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Congregation: Praise to You, O Christ.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
O my soul, Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul.
I worship Your holy name.

The sun comes up; it’s a new day dawning:
It’s time to sing Your song again.
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
O my soul, Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul.
I worship Your holy name.

You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger;
Your name is great and Your heart is kind.
For all Your goodness, I will keep on singing
10,000 reasons for my heart to find!

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
O my soul, Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul.
I worship Your holy name.

And on that day, when my strength is failing,
The end draws near and my time has come,
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending,
10,000 years and then forever more.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
O my soul, Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul.
I worship Your holy name.
