National Anthems of New Zealand and Australia: (Pianist) Xing Wang

E Ihowa Atua
O Ngã iwi mãtou rã
Ãta whakarongona:
Me aroha noa
Kia hua ko te pai;
Kia tau tō atawhai;
Manaakitia mai

God of Nations at Thy feet,
In the bonds of love, we meet,
Hear our voices, we entreat,
God defend our free-land,
Guard Pacific's Triple Star
From the shafts of strife and war,
Make her praises heard afar,
God Defend New Zealand. 

Australians all let us rejoice, 
For we are one and free; 
We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil; 
Our home is girt by sea; 
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts 
Of beauty rich and rare; 
In history’s page, let every stage 
Advance Australia Fair. 

In joyful strains then let us sing, 
Advance Australia Fair.

Hymn: God of our Fathers

God of our fathers known of old 
Lord of our far-flung battle line 
Beneath whose awful hand, we hold 
Dominion over palm and pine 
Lord God of Hosts be with us yet 
Lest we forget – lest we forget 

The tumult and the shouting dies
The captains and the kings depart 
Still stands thine ancient sacrifice 
A humble and a contrite heart 
Lord God of hosts be with us yet 
Lest we forget – lest we forget.

Hymn: Abide with Me

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide:
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide;
When other helpers fail and comforts flee
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.


Swift to is close ebbs out life’s little day;
Earths joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see:
O though who changest not, abide with me.


Hold though thy Cross before my closing eyes
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies:
Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death,
O Lord, abide with me. 

Reading: Proverbs 3 – The Rev John Malcom, Greyfriars Eden Epsom Presbyterian Church
