LOVE DIVINE, ALL LOVES EXCELLING - by Charles Wesley, 1747 -
                                       Public Domain 
             Love divine, all loves excelling,
             Joy of heav'n, to earth come down;
             Fix in us Thy humble dwelling,
             All Thy faithful mercies crown;
             Jesus, Thou art all compassion,
             Pure, unbounded love Thou art;
             Visit us with Thy salvation,
             Enter ev'ry trembling heart.
             Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit
             Into ev'ry troubled breast;
             Let us all in Thee inherit,
             Let us find Thy promised rest;
             Take away the love of sinning;
             Alpha and Omega be;
             End of faith, as its beginning,
             Set our hearts at liberty.
             Come, Almighty to deliver,
             Let us all Thy life receive;
             Suddenly return, and never,
             Never more Thy temples leave;
             Thee we would be always blessing,
             Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
             Pray, and praise Thee without ceasing,
             Glory in Thy perfect love.
             Finish then Thy new creation,
             Pure and spotless let us be;
             Let us see Thy great salvation,
             Perfectly restored in Thee;
             Changed from glory into glory,
             Till in heav'n we take our place,
             Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
             Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
                              Amen.

Declaration Of Faith

The Apostles' Creed
   This historic affirmation of faith comes to us from the early
   centuries of the Christian church.
      I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
      Maker of heaven and earth:
      And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;
      Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost;
      Born of the Virgin Mary,
      Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
      Was crucified, dead, and buried;
      He descended into hell;
      The third day he rose again from the dead;
      He ascended into heaven
      And sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
      From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
      I believe in the Holy Ghost;
      The holy catholic church;     *
      The communion of saints;
      The forgiveness of sins;
      The resurrection of the body;
      And the life everlasting.
                             Amen.
                * Note: "catholic church" here means the entire body of
                  believers in Christ, not just one particular church.

The Lord's Prayer

The Lord, Himself, taught us to pray like this . . .
                     The Lord's Prayer 
   
          Our Father, who art in heaven,
            hallowed be thy Name,
            thy kingdom come,
            thy will be done,
              on earth as it is in heaven.
          Give us this day our daily bread.
          And forgive us our trespasses,
            as we forgive those who trespass against us.
          And lead us not into temptation,
            but deliver us from evil.
          For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
            for ever and ever. Amen.
                      Source: Book Of Common Prayer, based on
                              Matthew 6:9-13

   11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you
   shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
   11:10 For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and
   to him that knocks it shall be opened.
   11:11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he
   give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a
   serpent?
   11:12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
   11:13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your
   children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy
   Spirit to them that ask him?
   
May the Lord bless this presentation of His holy word.

The Good Samaritan
The Perfect Example Of The Golden Rule

("Treat others as you would like to be treated.")

FREE PUBLIC DOMAIN TEXT and FREE PUBLIC DOMAIN SPEAKING-VOICE MP3

This is the story of the good Samaritan, as recorded in the Bible in 
   LUKE chapter 10, verses 25 through 37.
                         The Good Samaritan
   
   And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tested him, saying,
   Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
   
   He said unto him, What is written in the law? how do you read
   it?
   
    And hee answering said, You shall love the Lord your God with all
   your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and
   with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.
   
    And he said unto him, You have answered right: this do, and you
   shall live.
   
    But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is
   my neighbor?
   
   And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem
   to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his
   clothing, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
   
    And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and
   when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
   
    And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked
   on him, and passed by on the other side.
   
    But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and
   when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
   
    And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and
   wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and
   took care of him.
   
    And on the next day when he departed, he took out two denarii,
   and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and
   whatsoever you spend more, when I come again, I will repay you.
   
    Which now of these three, think you, was neighbor unto him that
   fell among the thieves?
   
    And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto
   him, Go, and do likewise.
              ###
   
Here ends the story of the good Samaritan.

              MY PRAYER FOR YOU, THE READERS OF THIS PAGE
              
                 "To Start A Special Project"
               Perhaps there is some thing you want to do,
               Some special project that you have in mind.
               If so, then maybe it is time to start;
               No more procrastination is allowed!
               And so I pray that you will clear your mind,
               And focus now upon your newest task.
               I pray the Lord will help you get your start,
               And help you all the way till it is done.
               (I pray your task is worthy of His help.)         
               And when your special project is complete,
               I pray you and the Lord are satisfied.
               In Jesus' name I pray for you, Amen.

Closing Hymn

"A Mighty Fortress Is Our God"

Click HERE to start the music => http://www.patriot.net/users/bmcgin/fortrs8b.mid Words are by Martin Luther, translated. Music (EIN' FESTE BURG) is by Martin Luther, arranged by J. S. Bach, with MIDI sequence by Bill McGinnis from a published Bach arrangement. Everything here is Public Domain, free for all to use without restriction.

A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR GOD - by Martin Luther (1529), Translated by
                               Frederick H. Hedge (1853).

           A mighty fortress is our God,
           A bulwark never failing;
           Our helper He, amid the flood
           Of mortal ills prevailing.
           For still our ancient foe
           Doth seek to work us woe;
           His craft and pow'r are great,
           And, armed with cruel hate,
           On earth is not his equal.
           Did we in our own strength confide,
           Our striving would be losing,
           Were not the right Man on our side,
           The Man of God's own choosing.
           Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
           Lord Sabaoth His name,
           From age to age the same,
           And He must win the battle.
           And though this world, with devils filled,
           Should threaten to undo us,
           We will not fear, for God hath willed
           His truth to triumph through us.
           The prince of darkness grim -
           We tremble not for him;
           His rage we can endure,
           For lo! his doom is sure;
           One little word shall fell him.
           
           That word above all earthly pow'rs -
           No thanks to them - abideth;
           The Spirit and the gifts are ours
           Through Him Who with us sideth.
           Let goods and kindred go,
           This mortal life also;
           The body they may kill;
           God's truth abideth still,
           His kingdom is for ever.
                        Amen.
