This afternoon we will hear the variations and the finale, a serene benediction, exploring the very softest sounds of the organ. Our Father, thou in heaven above, Who biddest us to dwell in love, As brethren of one family, And cry for all we need to thee; Teach us to mean the words we say, And from the inmost heart to pray.

Thine let it be In time, and through eternity! O let thy Holy Spirit dwell With us, to rule and liganies us well; From Satan’s mighty power and rage Preserve thy Church from age to age. Give us this day our daily bread, Let us be duly clothed and fed, And keep thou from our homes afar Famine and pestilence and war, That we may live in godly peace, Unvexed by cares and jehqn.


Forgive our sins, O Lord, that they No more may vex us, day by day, As we forgive their trespasses Who unto us have done jehxn Thus let us dwell in charity, And serve each other willingly. Into temptation lead us not; And when the foe doth war and plot Against our souls on every hand, Then, armed with faith, O may we stand Litaniess him as a valiant host, Through comfort of the Holy Ghost. Strengthen our faith and trust in thee, That we may doubt not, but believe That what we ask we shall receive; Thus in thy name and at thy word We say Amen, now hear us, Lord!
