The grass withereth, and the flower thereof fadeth away:
But the word of the Lord endureth for
Heaven and earth shall pass away : But my word shall not pass away.
17. PSALM 121.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved :
The Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, Nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil :
He shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in,
From this time forth, and even for ever
18. PSALM 122.
I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Our feet shall stand within Thy gates, O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is built as a city that is compact together:
Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord,
Unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.
For there are set thrones of judgment,
And prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes,
I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek thy good.
19. PSALM 132.
Arise, O Lord, into Thy rest: Thou, and the ark of Thy strength.
Let Thy priests be clothed with righteousness: and let Thy saints shout for joy.
For Thy servant David's sake; turn not away the face of Thine anointed.
The Lord hath sworn in truth unto David: He shall not turn from it.
Of the fruit of thy body, will I set upon thy throne.
If thy children will keep My covenant, and My testimony that I will teach them : their children also shall sit upon thy throne for evermore.
For the Lord hath chosen Zion: He hath desired it for His habitation.
This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell, for I have desired it.
I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread.
I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
HEAVENLY FATHER, SEND THY BLESSING.

1. Heavenly Fa-ther, send Thy blessing On Thy children gathered here, 2. Holy Sa-vior, Who in meekness Didst vouchsafe a child to be,
May they all, Thy name confess-ing, Be to Thee for ev er dear. Guide their steps and help their weakness, Bless and make them like to Thee.

May they be like Jo-seph, lov-ing, Du ti ful, and chaste, and pure;
Tem-ples of the
Holy Spirit, May they with Thy glory shine,
And their faith, like Da-vid, proving, Steadfast unto death endure.

Bring forth precious sheaves alone,

Truth-ful lips and meek obedience Show Thy glo-ry in Thine own.
