Lord, who shall dwell in Thy tabernacle:
or who shall rest upon Thy holy hill.
Even he that leadeth an uncorrupt life:
and doeth the thing which is right,
and speaketh the truth from his heart,
He that hath used no deceit in his tongue, or done evil to his neighbour:
and hath not slandered his neighbour.
He that setteth not by himself, but is lowly in his own eyes:
and maketh much of them that fear the Lord.
He that sweareth unto his neighbour, and disappointeth him not:
though it were to his own hindrance.
He that hath not given his money upon usury:
nor taken reward against the innocent.
Whoso doeth these things: shall never fall.
Glory be to the Father, and to Son: and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen

Canticle O be joyful by B. Rose
Sung by the Woodford House Chapel Choir
Address Reverend Graeme Pilgrim
Lord of creation, to Thee be all praise!
Most mighty Thy working, most wondrous Thy ways!
Who reignest in glory no tongue can e’er tell,
Yet deign’st in the heart of the humble to dwell.
Lord of all power, I give Thee my will,
In joyful obedience Thy tasks to fulfil.
Thy bondage is freedom; Thy service is song;
And, held in Thy keeping, my weakness is strong.
Lord of all wisdom, I give Thee my mind,
Rich truth that surpasseth man’s knowledge to find.
What eye hath not seen and what ear hath not heard
Is taught by Thy Spirit and shines from Thy Word.
Lord of all bounty, I give Thee my heart;
I praise and adore Thee for all that Thou art;
Thy love to inspire me, Thy counsel to guide,
Thy presence to shield me, whate’er may betide.
