  When my feeble life is o’er, Time for me will be no more;
   Guide me gently, safely o’er To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore
  Just a closer walk with Thee, Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
  Daily walking close to Thee, Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

Closing Prayer

Prayer by John Wesley

I am no longer my own, but thine.

Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt.

Put me to doing, put me to suffering.

Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee.

Let me be full, let me be empty. Let me have all things, let me have nothing.

I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.

And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine.

So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.

When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.”  Lord, when you favored me, you made my royal mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed. To you, Lord, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy: “What is gained if I am silenced, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness? Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me; Lord, be my help. ”  Amen.

Child of weakness, watch and pray, Find in Me thine all in all.”
Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.

 

Closing Prayer

Prayer by Rev. Dale Fredrickson

You have power, swinging with you, a defiant wind

Love in your wings

Where there is evil, injustice, and opposition

Be the voice, the velocity That stirs the earth

The lament That heals people

The poem That dreams again

The hurricane Of resistance

For those who cannot breathe. Amen
