testimony Israel to give thanks unto the name of the Lord. For there
are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. Pray
for the peace of Jerusalem. They shall prosper that love thee. Peace
be within thy walls and prosperity within thy palaces. For my breth¬
ren and companions' sake I will now say, Peace be within thee.
Because of the house of the Lord I will seek thy God.
The W. C. shall say: The Lord is my light and my salvation,
whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom
shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even my enemies and foes,
come upon me to eat up my flesh, they shall stumble and fall. Though
a host should encamp against me my heart shall not fear; though war
should rise against me, in this I will be confident. One thing have I
desired of the Lord that I will seek after: that I may dwell in the
house of the Lord all the days of my life; to behold the beauties of
the Lord and inquire into His Temple.
M. W S. shall say: Keep thy heart with all thy diligence, for
out of it are the issues of life; put away from thee a froward mouth,
and perverse lips put far from thee; let thine eyes look right on and
let thine eyelids look straight before thee; ponder the path of thy
feet and let all thy ways be established; turn not to the right hand
nor to the left; remove thy feet from evil.
M. W. G. M.—Brethren, attend and give the public grand honors.
Benediction: Direct us, 0 Lord, in all our doings with thy most
gracious favor and further us with thy continual help that Ave may
ever glorify Thy holy name. Amen.
