P. 17.)

Our Sunday School is provided for students up to the age of 20. Instruction, which includes the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus, is from the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. Students are taught of God’s love for them and of the relevance of Jesus’ teachings to their lives.

Hymn selection ~ Wednesday, June 19

Hymn 237      

(Words by Fay Linn)


O may we be still and seek Him,

Seek with consecration whole,

Listening thus to hear the message,

Far from sense and hid in Soul.


He hath promised we shall find Him,

Love divine its promise keeps;

God is watching with the watchful,

God is Life that never sleeps.


If we pray to Him in secret,

Lift to Him the heart’s desire,

We shall find our earthly longings

All made pure by Love’s pure fire.


Then upon the precious metal

God’s own image will appear,

Faithfully to Him reflected,

One with Him forever near.

Hymn 266      

(Words by Thomas Cotterill)


Our God is Love, and all His sons

His image bear, we know;

The heart with love to God inspired,

With love to man will glow.


Teach us to love each other, Lord,

As we are loved by Thee;

None who are truly born of God

Can live in enmity.


Heirs of the same immortal bliss,

Our hopes and aims the same,

In bonds of love our hearts unite,

To praise His holy name.


So may we all with one accord

Learn how true Christians love;

And glorify our Father’s grace,

And seek that grace to prove.

Hymn 478      

(Words by Violet Hay)


From these Your children gathered in Your name,

From hearts made whole, from lips redeemed

from woe,

Your praise, Almighty, shall forever flow.

Alleluia! Alleluia!


O perfect Life, in Your completeness held,

None can beyond Your omnipresence stray;

Safe in Your Love, we live and sing alway

Alleluia! Alleluia!


O perfect Mind, reveal Your likeness true,

That higher selfhood which we all must prove,

Joy and dominion, love reflecting Love.

Alleluia! Alleluia!


O Soul, inspiring—give us vision clear,

Break earth-bound fetters, sweep away the veil,

Show the new heaven and earth that shall prevail.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
