Pastoral Reading
Psalm 26:1-8

Opening Hymn
Hallelujah, Praise Jehovah (Trinity #57)
1 Hallelujah, praise Jehovah,
O my soul, Jehovah praise;
I will sing the glorious praises
Of my God through all my days.
Put no confidence in princes,
Nor for help on man depend;
He shall die, to dust returning,
And his purposes shall end.

2 Happy is the man that chooses
Israel’s God to be his aid;
He is blessed whose hope of blessing
On the Lord his God is stayed.
Heav’n and earth the Lord created,
Seas and all that they contain;
He delivers from oppression,
Righteousness he will maintain.

3 Food he daily gives the hungry,
Sets the mourning prisoner free,
Raises those bowed down with anguish,
Makes the sightless eyes to see.
Well Jehovah loves the righteous,
And the stranger he befriends,
Helps the fatherless and widow,
Judgment on the wicked sends.

4 Hallelujah, praise Jehovah,
O my soul, Jehovah praise;
I will sing the glorious praises
Of my God through all my days.
Over all God reigns for ever,
Through all ages he is king;
Unto him, your God, O Zion,
Joyful hallelujahs sing.

Closing Hymn
Lord, Thou Hast Searched Me (Trinity #36)

1 Lord, thou hast searched me, and dost know
where’er I rest, where’er I go;
thou knowest all that I have planned,
and all my ways are in thy hand.

2 My words from thee I cannot hide;
I feel thy pow’r on every side;
O wondrous knowledge, awesome might,
unfathomed depth, unmeasured height!

3 Where can I go apart from thee,
or whither from thy presence flee?
In heav’n? – it is thy dwelling fair;
in death’s abode? – lo, thou art there.

4 If I the wings of morning take,
and far away my dwelling make,
the hand that leadeth me is thine,
and my support thy pow’r divine.

5 If deepest darkness cover me,
the darkness hideth not from thee;
to thee both night and day are bright,
the darkness shineth as the light.
