His Reign and Mediation - - 316-335 Children's HYMNS -
As it is Written in the Twentieth Chapter of the Book of Exodus
OD SPAKE ALL THESE WORDS, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which
have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. I.-Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
II.-Thou shalt not make unto thee any gruven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments.
III.-Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain.
IV.- Remember the Sabbath-day to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work : but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates : for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day : wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbathday and hallowed it.
V.- Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
VI.-Thou shalt not kill.
X.-Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's.
The Summary of the Law by our Lord Jesus Christ
St. Matthew, xxii: 37-40 HOU shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
The Apostles' Creed
Believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven
and carth : And in Jesus Christ, His only Son our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin
Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried;
He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead ; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God
the Father Almighty; From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holp Ghost: The Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints: The forgiveness of sins : The resurrection of the body: And the life everlasting. Amen.
the Lord's Prayer
ur Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name.
for ever. Amen.
3 On the children of affliction,
D. S. R. 1890
CAMBRIDGE 7s, 6s. D.
O day of rest and gladness,0 day of joy and light, Obalm of care and sadness, Most beautiful,most bright:
On thee, the high and lowly,Through ages joined in tune, Sing holy, holy, ho- ly, To the Great God Triune.
O day of joy and light,
Most beautiful, most bright:
Through ages joined in tune, Sing holy, holy, holy,
To the Great God Triune. 2 On thee, at the creation,
The light first had its birth; On thee, for our salvation,
Christ rose from depths of earth; On thee our Lord, victorious,
The Spirit sent from heaven, And thus on thee, most glorious,
A triple light was given.
3 To-day on weary nations
The heavenly manna falls; To holy convocations
The silver trumpet calls, Where gospel light is glowing
With pure and radiant beams, And living water fowing
With soul-refreshing streams. 4 New graces ever gaining
From this our day of rest, We reach the rest remaining
To spirits of the blest; To Holy Ghost be praises,
To Father, and to Son; The Church her voice upraises To Thee, blest Three in One.
Christopher Wordsworth 1858
