Hymn of the Day: Strengthen for Service, Lord (ELW #497)
 
1 Strengthen for service, Lord,
the hands that holy things have taken;
and let the ears that heard your word
to falsehood never waken.
2The tongues that sang your holy name
now purge of all deception;
keep bright the eyes that saw your love
and sharpen their perception.
3 And may the feet that walked your courts
be never lured to wander;
but lead the faithful nourished here
to journey on in splendor.

Sending Hymn: I’d Rather Have Jesus (TFF #233)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqjU5xI85mY
1 I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold,
I’d rather be his than have riches untold;
I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands,
I’d rather be led by his nail-pierced hands.
Than to be king of a vast domain, or be held in sin’s dread sway;
I’d rather have Jesus than anything this world affords today.
2 I’d rather have Jesus than your applause,
I’d rather be faithful to his dear cause;
I’d rather have Jesus than worldwide fame,
I’d rather be true to his holy name.
Than to be king of a vast domain, or be held in sin’s dread sway;
I’d rather have Jesus than anything this world affords today.
