The Lord is my shepherd; therefore can I lack nothing.
He shall feed me in a green pasture,

He shall convert my soul,
and bring me forth in the paths of righteousness,
for his Name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For thou art with me:
Thy rod and thy staff comfort me.
Thou shalt prepare a table before me
against them that trouble me:
thou hast anointed my head with oil
and my cup shall be full.
But thy loving‐kindness and mercy
shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Offertory This World Is Not My Home   Albert Brumley, arr. Stephen Lambert
     (1905-1977; b. 1953)

This world is not my home; I’m only passing through.
My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue.
The Angels beckon me from Heaven’s open door,
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.

Refrain:

O Lord, You know I have no friend like you.
If Heaven’s not my home, then Lord, what will I do?
The Angels beckon me from Heaven’s open door
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.

I have a loving mother up in Glory Land,
and I’m not gonna stop until I take her hand,
She’s waiting there for me at Heaven’s open door,
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.

Refrain

Just up in Glory Land we’ll live eternally.
The Saints on every hand are shouting victory!
Their songs of sweetest praise drift back from Heaven’s shore,
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.

Refrain

Scripture Reading Acts 2:1-12 (p. 992)

Afrikaans: who was conceived by the Holy Ghost

Greek: born of the Virgin Mary,

Hebrew: suffered under Pontius Pilate,

People: was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

Prayers of the People and the Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.

All the Way My Savior Leads Me   Stephen Lambert

All the way my Savior leads me; What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His tender mercy Who through life has been my guide?

All the way my Savior leads me; Cheers each winding path I tread;
Gives me grace for every trial Feeds me with the living bread.

Though my weary steps may falter and my soul a-thirst may be,
gushing from the rock before me, lo a spring of joy I see.

All the way my Savior leads me; Oh, the fullness of His grace!
Perfect rest to me is promised in my Father’s blest embrace.

O Light of Light, Eternal God, You are good to us.

When my spirit clothed immortal wings its flight to realms of day,
This my song through endless ages, Jesus led me all the way.

Text: Fanny Crosby (1820-1915)
Music inspired by Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem
