This is my country, land of my birth; this is my country, grandest on earth. I pledge thee my allegiance, America the bold. For this is my country to have and to hold. My country ‘tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside let freedom ring. Our father’s God to thee, author of liberty, to thee we sing. Long may our land be bright with freedom’s holy light. Protect us by Thy might, great God our king. O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain; for purple mountains majesties above th e fruited plain. America, America, God shed His grace on thee and crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea. God of our Fathers, whose almighty hand leads forth in beauty all the starry band of shining worlds in splendor through the skies. Our grateful songs before Thy throne arise. Thy love divine hath led us in the past. In this free land by thee our lot is cast. Be thou our ruler, guardian, guide and stay; Thy word is law, Thy paths our chosen way. This is my country, land of my choice. This is my country, hear my proud voice. I pledge thee my allegiance, America, the bold. For this is my country to have and to hold.

...............Summer Choir

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord. He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored. He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword: His truth is marching on. (Refrain): Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on! I have see Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps. They have builded Him an alter in the evening dews and damps. I can read His righteous sentence in the dim and flaring lamps. His day is marching on! (Refrain): Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on! In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, with a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me. As he died to make men holy, let us live to make men free, while God is marching on!

Worship Notes Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, senior pastor, continues his summer series on Today we hear “The Story of Rizpah” as found in II Samuel 21. Randy Daniel, an elder, ordained minister and financial counselor, hosts today’s service. Pastor Dan Stevens, pastor of children’s ministry, presents the Prayers of the People and the Children’s Story. Victor Nyachieo and his sister, Rebecca Nyachieo are being baptized by Pastor Hazel Burns. Victor will be in seventh grade and Rebecca will be in sixth grade at Spring Valley Academy. As we gather for worship we hear three American hymns arranged for organ by American composers. is an American Quaker hymn often sung to the tune The composer, John Barr, is at Bridgewater College, a Church of the Brethren College, in (Hymn 90) was written by by Henry Harrisonburg, VA. Tweedy, a professor at the Yale Divinity School. The organ solo arrangement is by longtime organist/composer at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. is arranged for organ by Paul Manz, a highly-honored Lutheran organist/composer from Minnesota. Henry van Dyke wrote the hymn while visiting president Garfield in Massachusetts. He adapted the music from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. was written by American composer, Irving Berlin, in 1918 and made popular by singer, Kate Smith. Many have proposed making this piece the national anthem. (Hymn 645) was written by Daniel Roberts in 1841. Roberts was a graduate of Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio which is near Mount Vernon Academy. The tune was composed by George Warren, organist of the famed St. Thomas Church in New York City. was composed in 1971 by Ralph Carmichael, who was the head of the music department at Oral Robert’s University in Tulsa, Oklahoma for many years. In 1944, near the end of World War II, at a patriotic celebration in New York City’s Central Park, Learned Hand made this brief speech that moved the nation. It was quickly printed and went around the world. is an American tune that has seen many texts. These words, written by Unitarian preacher, Julia Ward Howe, were sung by Charles McCabe in the House of Representatives for a rally for Christian Commission (a volunteer organization that gathered food for soldiers) attended by President Lincoln. He was so moved, it soon was being published around the nation. The music was probably composed by a Philadelphia musician early in our country’s history. is a patriotic American march widely considered to be the magnum opus of composer John Philip Sousa. By act of Congress, it is the National March of the United States of America. It is heard today in an arrangement for organ duo by Ray and Elizabeth Chenault played by organists Christi Wilson and Jerry Taylor.


“The Story of Rizpah� Second message in series:

I. The Story of Gerald Sittser II. The Story of Rizpah A. She was victim of _______________ turmoil. B. She was victim of _______________ turmoil. C. She was victim of _______________ turmoil. (2 Samuel 21:8-14 NIV) But the king took Armoni and Mephibosheth, the two sons of Aiah's daughter, Rizpah, whom she had borne to Saul, together with the five sons of Saul's daughter, Merab, whom she had borne to Adriel son of Barzillai the Meholathite. He handed them over to the Gibeonites, who killed and exposed them on a hill before the Lord. All seven of them fell together; they were put to death during the first days of the harvest, just as the barley harvest was beginning. Rizpah, daughter of Aiah, took sackcloth and spread it out for herself on a rock. From the beginning of the harvest till the rain poured down from the heavens on the bodies, she did not let the birds of the air touch them by day or the wild animals by night. When David was told what Aiah's daughter, Rizpah, Saul's concubine, had done, he went and took the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan from the citizens of Jabesh Gilead. (They had taken them secretly from the public square at Beth Shan, where the Philistines had hung them after they struck Saul down on Gilboa.) David brought the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan from there, and the bones of those who had been killed and exposed were gathered up. They buried the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan in the tomb of Saul's father, Kish, at Zela in Benjamin, and did everything the king commanded. After that, God answered prayer in behalf of the land. III.
