* Anthem: All Those Who Trust in Christ Are Blessed      H. H. Parry

All those who trust in Christ are blest And find in Him eternal rest;

This world’s allurements we despise And fix on Christ alone our eyes.

Through Him we heirs of heav’n are made; O Brother, Christ, extend Thine aid

That we may firmly trust in Thee, And through Thee live eternally.

O Christ, our Savior, Helper Friend, Be with us till our journey’s end.

In mercy guide us by Thy grace Till we behold Thy glorious face.

Though Satan rage, His pow’r is gone His thundering roar can harm us none

Our strong Defender hurls him down, And wins for us a heav’nly crown.

Scripture

Philippians 3:17-21 Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.
