Prelude, 11:00 a.m.: Simple Gifts, adapted by Aaron Copland, Transcribed for Chorus by Irving Fine

‘Tis a gift to be simple, ’tis a gift to be free,
‘Tis the gift to come down where you ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed.
To turn, turn will be our delight
‘Till by turning, turning we come round right.

Communion, 11:00 a.m.: Lead Me, Lord, S.S. Wesley (1810-1876)

Lead me, Lord, lead me in thy righteousness; make thy way plain before my face. 
For it is thou, Lord, thou, Lord only, that makest me dwell in safety. Psalm 5 v. 8, Psalm 4 v. 9

Postlude: “Allemande” and “Gigue” Suite Number 2 in C, Dietrich Buxtehude   (1637/39 – 1707)
