This year’s Spring Choral Service is taking place during the evening service on May 20. The children’s and adult choirs will join to sing movements from several different oratorios including Haydn’s Creation, Mendelssohn’s Elijah and St. Paul, and The Apostles by Edward Elgar. The goal of such a service is not to parade our choirs before you, but for us all to come together to praise God through his Word.
To encourage us toward that end, here are some of the texts which will be sung:
O rest in the Lord, wait patiently for Him, and He will give thee thy heart’s desires. Commit thy way unto Him and trust in Him, and fret not thyself because of evil-doers (from Psalm 37:7).
From The Apostles
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor: He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord (from Isaiah 61:1).
From St. Paul
O great is the depth of the riches of wisdom and knowledge of our God! How deep and unerring is He in His judgments! His ways are past our understanding. Sing His glory forevermore. Amen (from Romans 11:33).
