Sarah Gibson is a graduate of Indiana University and won the MENC (National Association for Music Education). (Hymn 348) was chosen to open today’s service because it was an instructive hymn written to confirm the teachings of what a church is. The Seventh-day Adventist Hymnal has verses 1,2,4,5 of the original seven stanzas. Stanza one proclaims that Christ is the head of the church, He created us, and died to redeem us. Stanza two proclaims that we all worship one God. Stanza three reminds us that even though the church is criticized, in the end we are Christ’s people. The final stanza testifies that was composed in 1864 by Samuel Wesley, we all long to spend eternity with Christ. The tune, grandson of the famous preacher, Charles Wesley. (O Great Mystery that Christ would come to earth for His people) is a common liturgical text heard today in a 1995 setting by Los Angeles choral composer, Morten Lauridsen. This piece was originally arranged for the Ultimate Utah Trombone Ensemble for 7 tenor and 2 bass trombones by Marc Williams, a composer from Seattle, Washington. The Low Brass Choir is under the direction of Donald Huff. is from Mendelssohn’ s oratorio, “Elijah.” Elijah just had the Mount Carmel experience and Queen Jezebel is seeking his life. The Lord sent this message to Elijah, that no matter what comes our way, if we are faithful, the God whom we serve is always with us. was composed by Randy Scruggs, from Nashville, Tennessee, and his songwriting partner John Thompson, for Jessy Dixon, an internationally known black gospel singer. (Hymn 587) was written in 1908 by the London Missionary Society to depict the triumphs of missionary work. The tune, was composed by Alexander Reinagle and commemorates the church of St. Peter-in-the-East, Oxford where Reinagle was the organist.
