First day

First day, exciting day, a rousing day for praise,
For worship, building up the church, this special Day of days.
Give words, O Savior, fitting words, to bless your blessed name,
Surrounded by the worthy saints, I’ll never be the same!

Lord, to obey your commands are joy and gladness to me

Lord, to obey your commands are joy and gladness to me, none more joyous than to meet with your people, my family, my friends. In their midst, I know who I am; under your hand, united around our Lord Jesus Christ, we find our place. Yours is the glory for this, too! Amen.

Heavenly Father, thank you for making us into family

Heavenly Father, thank you for making us into family, where love and concern rule, where brother takes care of brother, where your character appears in the features of each of your children. Thank you for this day together, around the table of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
