HYMN                On Jordon’s Stormy Banks


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; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever and ever. Amen

CLOSING HYMN   Jesus Loves Me                       GTG #188


Let us join in the columbarium for the committal.
Let us commend Mary to the mercy of God, our maker and redeemer.

Into your hands, O merciful Savior. We commend our servant Mary.  Acknowledge, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of your own fold and a lamb of your own flock. Receive her into the arms of your mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company of the saints in light. Amen.

JOB 19:25-27

For I know that my Redeemer lives,
   and that at the last he will stand upon the earth;
and after my skin has been thus destroyed,
   then in my flesh I shall see God,
whom I shall see on my side,
   and my eyes shall behold, and not another.
   My heart faints within me!

PSALM 42:1-5

To the leader. A Maskil of the Korahites.
As a deer longs for flowing streams,
   so my soul longs for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God,
   for the living God.
When shall I come and behold
   the face of God?
My tears have been my food
   day and night,
while people say to me continually,
   ‘Where is your God?’

These things I remember,
   as I pour out my soul:
how I went with the throng,
   and led them in procession to the house of God,
with glad shouts and songs of thanksgiving,
   a multitude keeping festival.
Why are you cast down, O my soul,
   and why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
   my help

HYMN   Blessed Assurance, Jesus is Mine! ( 1st verse and chorus)     GTG #839

Let us go forth in peace,
In the name of Christ, Amen
