Scripture reading 

Hymn: O God, our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come,

Our shelter from the stormy blast,

And our eternal home.

Under the shadow of thy throne,

Thy saints have dwelt secure,

Sufficient is thine arm alone,

And our defence is sure.

Before the hills in order stood,

Or earth received her fame,

From everlasting thou art God,

To endless years the same.       

(Isaac watts, 1674-1748)

Address

Hymn: O lord my God, when I in awesome wonder,

Consider all the works thy hands have made,

I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,

Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, my saviour God to thee;

How great thou art, how great thou art!

Then sings my soul, my saviour God to thee;

How great thou art, how great thou art!

Ora, mate, hei a au koe noho ai.

From the shafts of strife and war

Make her praises heard afar
