Hymn—“To God The Father’s Throne”

Scripture Reading—Psalm 41:1-13

“Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness. I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee. Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish? And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth abroad, he telleth it. All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt. An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more. Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them. By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me. And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever. Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.”

Closing Prayer

O Lord, the works of Thy hands are verity and judgment. Thy commandments are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness. Thou hast sent redemption unto us. Thou has commanded Thy covenant for ever. Holy and reverend is Thy name. The beginning of wisdom is to reverence Thee, and a good understanding do we have when we do Thy commandments. (Ps 111:7-10)


The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God the Father, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, be with us all. Amen.
