Praises & Prayer Requests
WALK WITHIN THY HOUSE
WITH A PERFECT HEART
Lord, How I long to serve Thee upon some great mission field.
And have the world see how I love Thee by this my Sacrifice.
"Nay," came His voice so gently yet so firm
Walk within Thy house with a perfect heart
And do not for other things yearn.
Then Lord make within these walls
A perfect sacrifice of Thy grace
A place where all who enter
May see Thy face and rest and be renewed.
May those who dwell here Lord
Find always warm welcome
Peace and happy words
That when they go
Their own hearth to build
They will have a perfect pattern
And Thy perfect will fulfill.
One of the great hymns of the church is one that is not sung very often but has a powerful message. I think it is appropriate for us to conclude our worship today by singing "Channels Only":
How I praise Thee, precious Savior, That Thy love laid hold of me;
Thou hast saved and cleansed and filled me That I might Thy channel be.
Emptied that Thou shouldest fill me, A clean vessel in Thy hand;
With no pow'r but as Thou givest Graciously with each command.
Channels only, blessed Master, But with all Thy wondrous pow'r
Flowing thro' us, Thou canst use us
Ev'ry day and ev'ry hour.
