Pastoral Prayer

*Hymn        “Abide with Me”
 Abide with me, falls fast the even tide
The darkness deepens, Lord with me abide
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless O, abide with me

*Closing Hymn            “Bye and Bye”        Arr. Georgia Mass Choir

When I reach that home, beyond the sky
Where the wicked cease from troubling 
And the weary be at rest

Every day will be Sunday, by and by
