PROCESSIONAL HYMN: Lord of Life and King of Glory                      (Glorious)
 
1, Lord of life and King of glory,                         3, When our growing sons and daughters
Who didst deign a child to be,                                       Look on life with eager eyes,
Cradled on a mother’s bosom,                                      Grant us then a deeper insight
Throned upon a mother’s knee:                                  And new powers of sacrifice:
For the children Thou hast given                                  Hope to trust them, faith to guide them,
We must answer unto Thee!                                  Love that nothing good denies.
For the children Thou hast given                            Hope to trust them, faith to guide them,
We must answer unto Thee!                                   Love that nothing good denies.
 
2, Since the day the blessèd mother                      4, May we keep our holy calling
Thee, the world’s Redeemer, bore,                            Stainless in its fair renown,
Thou hast crowned us with an honor                       That when all the work is over
Women never knew before;                                     And we lay the burdens down,
And that we may bear it meetly                               Then the children Thou hast given
We must seek Thine aid the more.                             Still may be our joy and crown.
And that we may bear it meetly                              Then the children Thou hast given
We must seek Thine aid the more.                           Still may be our joy and crown.

GOSPEL HYMN:     Shall we not love thee, Mother dear                 (Guardian)
 1.  Shall we not love you,  Mother dear          3. As Babe, He lay upon your  breast
    Whom Jesus loves so well?                                To you  He cried for food
    And to His glory year by year                           Your gentle nursing tender care
    Thy joy and honor tell?                                      Soothed the Incarnate Son.
 
2. And you He chose from whom to take        4. And as He loves you, Mother, dear,
   True flesh, His flesh to be;                                 We too will love you well;
   With very tender love  He came                       And to His glory year by year
    To take our sins away                                       Our  joy and honor tell.

BANNS OF MARRIAGE: 
"I publish the Banns of Marriage between Mr. Kenny Chibueze Udokporo  of Kansas City, MO, and Ms. Amara Ihuoma Obiyo of Arlington Texas. If any of you know  any cause or just impediment why these two persons should not be joined together  in Holy Matrimony, you are to declare it. This is for the Second time of asking."
 
OFFERTORY Sentence: Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Children are a heritage from the LORD, and the fruit of the womb is a gift.( Psalm 127:1,4) .                   
 
OFERTORY Hymn (Pew by Pew):   Dear Lord, to you again our gifts we bring
 
1, Dear Lord, to you again our gifts we bring        3. Yes, you will take and bless and grace impart
  This bread, our toil, this wine, our ecstasy             To make again what once, your goodness gave
Poor and imperfect though they both may be    What we hold on as if it is our own
Yet you will take a health-felt offering                We pray Dear Lord give us the heart to give
Yours is the bounty, ours the unfettered will      Bless these our gifts we now present to you
To make or mar, to fashion good or ill.                      Bless them as yours, ourselves, our will our all.
 
2.Break down, O Lord, our wayward, sinful will.        4. Our lips receive your wine, our hands your bread.
 That see our prized possession as our god.           You give us back the selves we offered you,
 Let them be freely given as your own;                Won by the Cross, by Calvary made anew,
 To help the needy, and to spread your Word.     A heart enriched, a life raised from the dead
Break this, the bread we bring, that all may share         Grant us to take and guard your treasure well,
In your one Living body as your Church.            That we in You, and we in You may dwell.

Help us understand that  all that we have, all that we own, all that we possess, all that we cling to, and all that we are, are actually Thine. We are Thine and Thine alone. We Thank Thee  for the Opportunities and Resources from Thee to us; Therefore,  Merciful Father, we beseech Thee to accept  our Offerings. Make us profoundly experience the Joy of Giving. In the Name of Jesus Christ Our Lord.  AMEN

The Priestly Benediction 
 
 RECESSIONAL Hymn:  Love divine, all loves excelling
 
1, Love divine, all loves excelling,               3. Come, Almighty to deliver,
   Joy of heaven to earth come down;            Let us all Thy life receive;
   Fix in us thy humble dwelling;                       Suddenly return and never,
   All thy faithful mercies crown!                    Never more Thy temples leave.
   Jesus, Thou art all compassion,                    Thee we would be always blessing,
   Pure unbounded love Thou art;                    Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
   Visit us with Thy salvation;                           Pray and praise Thee without ceasing,
   Enter every trembling heart.                        Glory in Thy perfect love.
 
2. Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit,    4. Finish, then, Thy new creation;
  Into every troubled breast!                             Pure and spotless let us be.
  Let us all in Thee inherit;                                Let us see Thy great salvation
  Let us find that second rest.                           Perfectly restored in Thee;
  Take away our bent to sinning;                       Changed from glory into glory,
  Alpha and Omega be;                                     Till in heaven we take our place,
  End of faith, as its Beginning,                        Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
  Set our hearts at liberty.                                  Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
