Hymn – (Hymn # 21)

Beloved, let us love: for Love is God; In God alone hath love its true abode.
Beloved, let us love: for they who love, They only, are His sons, born from above.
Beloved, let us love: for love is light, And he who loveth not dwelleth in night.
Beloved, let us love: for only thus Shall we behold that God who loveth us.

The Lord’s Prayer – with its spiritual interpretation from Science & Health

Our Father which art in heaven, Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious,
Hallowed be Thy name. Adorable One.
Thy kingdom come. Thy kingdom is come; Thou art ever-present.
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Enable us to know, — as in heaven, so on earth, — God is omnipotent, supreme.
Give us this day our daily bread; Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections;
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And Love is reflected in love;
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; And God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.— For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.

We turn to Thee, O Lord, And sing in sweet accord; We would Thy beauty see, Lifting our
lives to Thee, Thou art God.

Our hearts redeemed from strife, And comforted in grief, Healing and joy are ours, Blessings
of peaceful hours, Thou art Life.

O God, we bless Thy name, Thy wondrous power acclaim, Lord, Thy salvation strong, Now is
become our song, Great I AM.

Hymn – (# 357)

To Thee, our loving Father, God, A gladsome song begin, Whose smile is on the world
abroad, Whose joy our hearts within.

We need not, Lord, our gladness leave, To worship Thee aright; Our joyfulness for praise
receive, Thou mak’st our lives so bright.

The pure in heart are always glad; The smile of God they feel; He doth the secret of His joy To
blameless hearts reveal.

The Scientific Statement of Being – (SH 468: 9)

There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter.
All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in- all.
Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error.
Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal.
Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness.
Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual.

6th Tenet – (Science & Health pg. 497: 24)

And we solemnly promise to watch,
and pray for that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus;
to do unto others as we would have them do unto us;
and to be merciful, just, and pure.
