Voluntary    Overture, The Rejoicing, The Peace from Music for the Royal Fireworks
George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)

Opening Hymn 718 vv. 1 & 4    God of our fathers, whose almighty hand    National Hymn

God of our fathers, whose almighty hand
leads forth in beauty all the starry band
of shining worlds in splendor through the skies,
our grateful songs before thy throne arise.

Refresh thy people on their toilsome way,
lead us from night to never-ending day;
fill all our lives with love and grace divine,
and glory, laud, and praise be ever thine.

Sequence Hymn 693 vv 1 & 2   Just as I am, without one plea    Woodworth

Just as I am, without one plea,
but that thy blood was shed for me,
and that thou bidd’st me come to thee,
O Lamb of God, I come.

Just as I am, though tossed about
with many a conflict, many a doubt;
fightings and fears within, without,
O Lamb of God, I come.

Closing Hymn 719 vv. 1 & 3    O beautiful for spacious skies    Materna

O beautiful for spacious skies,
for amber waves of grain;
for purple mountain majesties
above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
and crown thy good with brotherhood
from sea to shining sea.

O beautiful for patriot dream
that sees beyond the years
thine alabaster cities gleam,
undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God mend thine every flaw,
confirm thy soul in self-control,
thy liberty in law.

Voluntary    Minuet, Finale from Music for the Royal Fireworks    George Frideric Handel
