The Poetry of Worship

Hearts: quiet
Choir: white-collared in gray robes,
            lined processionally
Pulpit cloth: sunburst cross
    J.S. Bach Fugue in G Minor
News note in the bulletin:
Mob violence in India threatens
children in orphans’ home
Welcome: warm hello, Max
Confess: pardon assured
Our Father who art
We sing
   There is the glory
   Risen conqu’ring Son
Offering: submission
We sing
   The Lord is My Light
Luke to Theophilus:
   wait for the gift,
Did St. Patrick sing?
Not sure but we do
   Be Thou My Vision
Finale: Trumpet
