“Can’t Nobody Do Me Like Jesus” by Andraé Crouch 
Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
Can’t nobody do me like the Lord
Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
He’s my friend

Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
Can’t nobody do me like the Lord
Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
He’s my friend

Healed my body, told me to run
Healed my body, told me to run
Healed my body, told me to run
He’s my friend

Picked me up, turned me around
Picked me up, turned me around
Picked me up, turned me around
He’s my friend

Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
Can’t nobody do me like the Lord
Can’t nobody do me like Jesus
He’s my friend

“Abide With Me” by Henry Francis Lyte
Abide with me, fast falls the eventide
The darkness deepens Lord, with me abide
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless, oh, abide with me

“Day by Day” (from ‘Godspell’) by Stephen Schwartz
Day by day, day by day
Oh, dear Lord, three things I pray
To see Thee more clearly
love Thee more dearly 
Follow Thee more nearly, Day by day

14 ‘You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden.15No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
