Cantor: Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice; seek the Lord and be strength- ened; seek his face for evermore.
Vs. Give thanks to the Lord and call upon his name; declare his deeds among the gentiles.
Assembly: Vs. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit...
Psalm: I love you Lord, my strength, my strength.
We shall rejoice in your salvation; and in the name of the Lord our God shall we place our pride.
I give you a new commandment: Love one another as I have loved you, as I have loved you.
1. This is my will, my one command, That love should dwell among you all. This is my will, that you should love, as I have shown that I love you.
2. No greater love that one can have, than that one die to save one’s friends. You are my friends, if you obey what I command that you should do.
3. I call you now no longer slaves; no slave knows all the master does. I call you friends, for all I hear the Father say you hear from me.
4. You chose not me, but I chose you, that you should go and bear much fruit. I chose you out, that you in me should bear much fruit that will abide.
5. All that you ask my Father, dear, for my name’s sake you shall receive. This is my will, my one command, that Love should dwell in each, in all.
