Prelude Sunday at 11:00: ‘Blessed, They’ from A German Requiem Johannes Brahms

Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall have comfort.
They that sow in tears, shall reap in joy.
Who goeth forth and weepeth and beareth precious seed, Shall doubtless return with rejoicing,
and bring her sheaves with her. Blessed are they that mourn…

Communion 2 Sunday at 11:00: Deliver us, O Lord our God Adrien Batten (ca. 1591 – ca. 1637)

Deliver us, O Lord our God,
and gather us from among the heathen
that we may give thanks unto thy holy name,
and make our boast of thy praise.
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting and world without end.
And let all the people say, “Amen”.

Postlude: Fanfare Jacques-Nicolas (Jaak-Nicolaas) Lemmens (1823 – 1881)
