Invocation and Opening Prayers

Hymn:  Jerusalem
(William Blake)

And did those feet in ancient time 
Walk upon England's mountains green? 
And was the holy Lamb of God 
On England's pleasant pastures seen? 
And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills? 
And was Jerusalem builded here 
Among these dark, satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold, 
Bring me my arrows of desire, 
Bring me my spear, O clouds unfold, 
Bring me my chariot of fire. 
I will not cease from mental fight, 
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand 
Till we have built Jerusalem 
In England's green and pleasant land.

Hymn:  Eventide
(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, O abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away; 
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou, Who changest not, abide with me.

I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless
Ills have no weight and tears no bitterness;
Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy Cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies;
Heav'n's morning breaks and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

Prayers and Blessing

The National Anthem of the United Kingdom

God save our gracious Queen, 
Long live our noble Queen, 
God save the Queen! 
Send her victorious, 
Happy and glorious, 
Long to reign over us; 
God save the Queen!

The National Anthem of the United States of America

Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early light, 
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? 
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, 
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. 
O say, does that star spangled banner yet wave 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
