Grace to you and peace be multiplied.
Hymn: TLH 343, st. 6-7: How Lovely Shines the Morning Star
6. Lift up the voice and strike the string.
Let all glad sounds of music ring
In God’s high praises blended.
Christ will be with me all the way,
Today, tomorrow, every day,
Till traveling days be ended.
Sing out, Ring out
Triumph glorious, O victorious,
Praise the God of your salvation.
7. Oh, joy to know that Thou, my Friend,
Art Lord, Beginning without end,
The First and Last, Eternal!
And Thou at length–O glorious grace!–
Wilt take me to that holy place,
The home of joys supernal.
Come and meet me! Quickly greet me!
With deep yearning,
Lord, I look for Thy returning.
