Prelude to Worship
Little Prelude No. 4 in D . . . J. S. Bach (1685-1750)
The Church’s One Foundation . . . Samuel Wesley, 1864
The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord;
She is His new creation by water and the word;
From heaven He came and sought her to be His holy bride;
With his own blood He bought her, and for her life He died.
Yet she on earth has union with God the Three in One,
And mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won;
O happy ones and holy! Lord give us grace that we,
Like them, the meek and lowly, may dwell on high with Thee.
– Samuel Stone, 1866
Bach Chorale – Alles ist an Gottes Segan
My Shepherd Will Supply My Need . . . American folk hymn, arr. by John Carter
Fugue and Harmonization on “St. Anne” . . . J. S. Bach, arr. by Hal Hopson
The difference between a good artist and a great one is:
The novice will often lay down his tool or brush,
Then pick up an invisible club on the mind’s table
And helplessly smash the easels and jade.
Whereas the vintage man no longer harms himself or anyone
And keeps on sculpting light.
