INVOCATION Rev. Mason
HYMN “ For the Beauty of the Earth “ 1
O God, we have been recipients of the choicest blessings of heaven! We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown; but we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserve us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us. Forgive us, we pray. Help us to humble ourselves and confess our sins, and pray for forgiveness. AMEN
