School Scripture and Song
“Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Jesus Shall Reign
by Isaac Watts
Jesus shall reign where’er the sun Does his successive journeys run,
His kingdom stretch from shore to shore Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
For Him shall endless prayer be made, And endless praises crown His head; His name,
like sweet perfume, shall rise With ev’ry morning sacrifice.
People and realms of ev’ry tongue Dwell on His love with sweetest song;
And infant voices shall proclaim Their early blessings on His name.
Blessings abound where’er He reigns; The pris’ner leaps, unloosed his chains,
The weary find eternal rest, And all the sons of want are blest.
