Hymn VIP # 50 – 1st & 5th stanzas My Heart and Voice I Raise
My heart and voice I raise,
To spread Messiah’s praise;
Messiah’s praise let all repeat:
The universal Lord,
By whose almighty word
Creation rose in form complete.
Hail, Saviour, Prince of peace!
Your kingdom shall increase,
Till all the world your glory see,
And righteousness abound
As the great deep profound,
And fill the earth with purity.
Leader: For today and the rest of the week, let us think about rules for peaceful living in our homes, our community, and the world.
