Twenty-Second Sunday after Pentecost

Sermon by Rev. Matthew van Maastricht
Scripture Text: 1 Samuel 16:1-13

Choir Anthem: "God Watches Over You"

Creator of darkness and light, Commander of wind and sea,
Maker of heaven and earth, all that has been, all that will be,
the Lord of the day and the night will guide you in all you do,
Holds you forever, keeps you from falling, God watches over you.

God watches over you when your footsteps falter. God watches over you when the day grows dim.
The Lord will keep your soul and guide you in all you do. God watches over you.

Never slumbers, never sleeps, our keeper, our help and shield,
God is the source of our strength, never to fail, never to yield!
Lift up your eyes to the hills, in search of what’s right and true.
Holds you forever, keeps you from falling, God watches over you.
