Let us seek the Lord while he may be found.  Let us call upon him while he is near. 

 Let us return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on us; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Amen.

*Hymn                “Precious Lord, Take My Hand”       by Thomas Dorsey


 Precious Lord, take my handLead me on, let me sta-and
I am tired, I'm weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the li-ight
Take my ha-and, precious Lor-ord
Lead me home

When my work is all done
And my race here is are you-un
Let me see-ee by the light
Thou hast shown
That fair city so bright
Where the lantern is the li-ight
Take my ha-and, precious Lor-ord
Lead me on

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me sta-and
I am tired, I'm weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the li-ight
Take my ha-and, precious Lor-ord
Lead me home

He's got the whole world in His hands
He's got the whole wide world in His hands

He's got the preacher and the deacon in His hands

He's got the whole world in His hands

He's got everybody here in His hands

He's got the whole world in His hands

He's got the whole world in His hands
He's got the whole wide world in His hands
He's got the whole world in His hands
He's got the whole world in His hands
