     1. Guide me, O thou great Jehovah, pilgrim through this barren land.
     I am weak, but thou art mighty; hold me with thy powerful hand.
     Bread of heaven, bread of heaven, feed me till I want no more; feed me till I want no more.
 
     2. Open now the crystal fountain, whence the healing stream doth flow;
     let the fire and cloudy pillar lead me all my journey through.
     Strong deliverer, strong deliverer, be thou still my strength and shield; be thou still my strength       and shield.

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 forever. Amen.

     speaking in his wisdom, speaking in his mercy,
     calling hearts, changing lives.
