4. Fill your hearts with joy and gladness,
peace and plenty crown your days;
love his laws, declare his judgments,
walk in all his words and ways;
he the Lord and we his children--
praise the Lord, all people, praise!
THE READINGS from HOLY SCRIPTURE
Then all are seated for the readings.
A lesson from the Old Testament read by Paul Matthews
Ruth 1 v16:17 (King James)
Reader: A reading from the Book of Ruth, Chapter 1
And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.
Reader: Here endeth the first lesson
Answer: Thanks be to God.
Then this Psalm shall be read by Mark Parker:
Deus misereatur. Psalm 67.
God be merciful unto us, and bless us: and shew us the light of his countenance, and be merciful unto us.
That thy way may be known upon earth: thy saving health among all nations.
