— Tom Fettke.........................Church Choir

When I gaze into the night sky and see the work of Your fingers, the moon and stars suspended in space. But what is man that You are mindful of him? You have given man a crown of glory and honor and have made him a little lower than the angels. You have put him in charge of all creation: the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, the fish of the sea. But what is man, oh, what is man that You are mindful of him? O Lord, our God, the majesty and glory of Your name transcends the earth and fills the heavens. O Lord, our God, little children praise You perfectly and so would we, and so would we. Alleluia, Alleluia. The majesty and glory of Your name. Alleluia, Alleluia.

Music: As we gather for worship we hear a setting of Hymn No. 650, a family hymn of love. The Bells of Praise, under the direction of Joan Ulloth Dorgan play Michael Keller’s composed in 1994. Michael Keller is a past president of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers and currently the Director of Music and Fine Arts at Asbury United Methodist Church in Lafayette, Louisianna. is a prayer hymn from the Baptist Hymnal written by Bryan Jeffery Leech. He was born in England but is now a retired pastor in California. Together with Tom Fettke, they have written many contemporary hymns and spiritual cantatas. is heard in a setting for voices and handbells by Barbara Semmann. was written in 1979 by Linda Lee Johnson and set to music by Tom Fettke for contemporary vocal artist, Sandi Patty, who made this piece famous. (Hymn No. 492) originated as a poem by A. D. Ellington. Harold Miller composed music for these words and added a refrain for the “Missionary Volunteer Hymnal” of 1931. Miller was the chairman of the music department at Mount Vernon Academy when this hymn was composed. is one of the great pieces of new organ literature composed by David N. Johnson, who was chairman of the Eastman School of Music for many years before his death in Arizona. Johnson wrote trumpet tunes to be played at the graduation ceremonies of the schools where he was serving.

Next Sabbath, January 28: Pastor Karl Haffner will conclude our sermon series, 9:30 a.m. Serv 11:45 a.m. Music by the Washington Adventist University Band under the direction of Bruce Wilson.
