just in case

For our 9:45 Genesis worshipers who are getting to know the Sanctuary: the best way to reach restrooms during the service is to go to the Narthex (entry doors for the Sanc- tuary on Church Street). There is one restroom available in the Narthex, and more in Allen Hall, adjacent to our Sanctuary; our ushers can direct you. We ask you enter and exit through the back of the room to minimize distractions in worship.

NOTES

TRADITIONA

The growth of hymn singing and the publishing of hymnals grew during religious persecution during the last half of the 15th century and on into the 16th. The hymns provided a source of strength and encouragement, even as they do today. Johann Schüűtz, was an attorney who grew up in the Lutheran church

but later became a Separatist. Our opening hymn was written by Schűűütz and was first published in 1566. Note the first two phrases are identical. Each begins on the key note and rises a full octave before descending to the starting note. The text matches the ascending melody. In verse one, the starting note begins with Sing. The high point of the melody has the text God who reigns. The pattern repeats in the second phrase. The third phrase begins on the high note with strength of tune and text and descends to the end, with each verse ending in the identical tune and text. The best hymns have the tune and text wed, each part reflecting the other. The hymn is a melodic painting of the text. Like Psalm 121, our psalm for this Sunday, the hymn underscores God’s great provision and care of His

people.
