INVITATION TO CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP *CLOSING HYMN | This Is My Father’s World 144 | Terra Beata This is my Father’s world, and to my listening ears all nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres. This is my Father’s world: I rest me in the thought of rocks and trees, of skies and seas; his hand the wonders wrought. This is my Father’s world, the birds their carols raise, the morning light, the lily white, declare their maker’s praise. This is my Father’s world: he shines in all that’s fair; in the rustling grass I hear him pass; he speaks to me everywhere. This is my Father’s world. O let me ne’er forget that though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet. This is my Father’s world: why should my heart be sad? The Lord is King; let the heavens ring! God reigns; let the earth be glad! BENEDICTION POSTLUDE | Finale in D Major Jacques-Nicolas Lemmens, composer | Dr. Jonathan M. Gregoire
