Hymn
I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord

I love thy kingdom, Lord, The house of Thine abode,
The church our blest Redeemer saved With His own precious blood. 

I love Thy Church, O God! Her walls before Thee stand,
Dear as the apple of Thine eye, And graven on Thy hand. 

For her my tears shall fall; For her my prayers ascend;
To her my cares and toils be giv’n Till toils and cares shall end. 

Beyond my highest joy I prize her heav’nly ways,
Her sweet communion, solemn vows, Her hymns of love and praise.

Closing Song
You Are My All in All  

You are my strength when I am weak, You are the treasure that I seek; You are my all in all.
Seeking You as a precious jewel, Lord, to give up, I’d be a fool; You are my all in all.

[chorus]

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame, Rising again I bless your name; You are my all in all.
When I fall down, You pick me up; When I am dry, You fill my cup; You are my all in all.

[chorus]

Chorus
Jesus, Lamb of God, Worthy is Your name!
Jesus, Lamb of God, Worthy is Your name!
