1. Be thou my vision,
O Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me,
save that thou art.
Thou my best thought,
by day or by night,
waking or sleeping,
thy presence my light.
2. Be thou my wisdom,
and thou my true word;
I ever with thee
and thou with me, Lord;
thou and thou only,
first in my heart,
great God of heaven,
my treasure thou art.
3. Great God of heaven,
my victory won,
may I reach heaven’s joys,
O bright heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart,
whatever befall,
still be my vision,
O Ruler of all.

love thee, God and King?
All, all thine own, soul,

O let me seek thee,
and O let me find!

Pastor Donnie Sturgill
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name; Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those to trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power and the Glory forever.

v. 4 UMH #500
WORDS: George Croly, 1867 (Gal. 5:25)
4. Teach me to feel that
thou art always nigh;
teach me the struggles
of the soul to bear.
To check the rising
doubt, the rebel sigh,
teach me the patience
of unanswered prayer.

Scripture Reading    
Acts 2:1-21     
CLM Twinkle Gordon
When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.
Now there were devout Jews from every people under heaven living in Jerusalem. And at this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each. Amazed and astonished, they asked, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us, in our own native language? Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs—in our own languages we hear them speaking about God’s deeds of power.” All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” But others sneered and said, “They are filled with new wine.”
But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them, “Fellow Jews and all who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to what I say. Indeed, these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nine o’clock in the morning. No, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel:
‘In the last days it will be, God declares,
that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh,
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
and your young men shall see visions,
and your old men shall dream dreams.
Even upon my slaves, both men and women,
in those days I will pour out my Spirit,
and they shall prophesy.
And I will show portents in the heaven above
and signs on the earth below,
blood, and fire, and smoky mist.
The sun shall be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood,
before the coming of the Lord’s great and glorious day.
Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

Communion Hymn  
Let Us Break Bread Together         
v. 1 UMH #618
WORDS: African American spiritual (Acts 2:42)
1. Let us break bread together
on our knees, (on our knees)
let us break bread together
on our knees, (on our knees)
When I fall on my knees
with my face
to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy
on me. (on me)
*Sending Hymn       
Every Time I Feel the Spirit            
UMH #404
WORDS: African American spiritual (Rom. 8:15-17)
Every time I
feel the Spirit
moving in my heart,
I will pray.
Yes, every time I
feel the Spirit
moving in my heart,
I will pray.
1. Upon the mountain,
my Lord spoke,
out his mouth
came fire and smoke.
All around
me looks so shine,
ask my Lord
if all was mine.
Every time I
feel the Spirit
moving in my heart,
I will pray.
Yes, every time I
feel the Spirit
moving in my heart,
I will pray.
2. Jordan river
runs right cold,
chills the body,
not the soul.
Ain’t but one
train on this track,
runs to heaven
and right back.
Every time I
feel the Spirit
moving in my heart,
I will pray.
Yes, every time I
feel the Spirit
moving in my heart,
I will pray.
