Immortal, invisible, God only wise
Ecclesiastes 3 v1-18
To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace.HYMN
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide
with her grand-nephew
Morning has broken
From The Tempest by William Shakespeare
"Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep."
REVELATION 21 v 1 - 4
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth
were passed away, and the sea was no more.
And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of
heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man.
He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.
And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things have passed away.
23rd PSALM (Crimond)
The Lord's my Shepherd
concluding with The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
But deliver us from evil,
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory,
For ever and ever,
Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word.
For mine eyes have seen Thy salvation
Which Thou has prepared before the face of all people;
To be a light to lighten the gentiles
And to be the glory of Thy people Israel.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son And to the Holy Ghost
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be: World without end.
What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong
