WORDS of GRACE and GREETING
HYMN “Amazing Grace” Hymnal 378
PRAYER (in Unison) Rev. Glenda Fish
Eternal God, we praise you for the great company of all those who have finished their course in faith and now rest from their labor. We praise you for those dear to us whom we name in our hearts before you. Especially we praise you for Nadine Hill whom you have graciously received into your presence. To all of these, grant your peace.
Let perpetual light shine upon them; and help us to believe where we have not seen, that your presence may lead us through our years, and bring us at last with them into the joy of your home not made with hands but eternal in the heavens; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
RESPONSIVE READING Psalm 23 Rev. Glenda Fish
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art
with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence
of mine enemies, Thou anointest my head with
oil, my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all
the days of my life, and I will dwell in the
house of the Lord for ever. Amen.
