PSSTs (Possible Sunday School Topics) (from CedarS Camps)

prepared by Merrill Boudreaux, CS,

for the Christian Science Bible Lesson: “SOUL”

February 9-15, 2015

Let us sing our way through this Lesson. Read, and possibly sing, the hymns from the Christian Science Hymnal listed for each section. The message in each hymn selected is intended to correlate to the ideas in that section of the Lesson. Feel free to substitute your own inspired hymn to praise God with a song.

Golden Text: Hymn 199:

Now thank we all our God With grateful hearts and voices

Who wondrous things hath done, In whom the world rejoices;

Who from the days of yore Hath blessed us on our way With countless gifts of love And still is ours today.

We know our gracious God Through all our life is near us,

To fill our thoughts with light, To strengthen us and cheer us;

From His eternal care We never shall remove,

Encompassed by His grace, Enfolded in His love.

Responsive Reading: Hymn 275:

Praise now creative Mind, Maker of earth and heaven;

Glory and power to Him belong, Joy of the sun and skies,

Strength where the hills arise, So let us praise with joy and song.

Ages have seen His might, Father we call His name;

Nights of our mourning and sorrow end, Light blesses opened eyes,

Joys like the dawns arise As we see Him our God and Friend.

Saviour from death is He; Life is our heritage;

Mercy and goodness forever guide; Ours is the risen Christ,

Daily we keep our tryst, And evermore in Love confide.

Section 1: Hymn 117:

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,

Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee.

Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty,

Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

Holy, Holy, Holy, darkness cannot hide Thee,

Though the eyes of sinful men Thy glory cannot see.

Thou alone art holy, there is none beside Thee,

Perfect in power, in love and purity.

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,

All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth, and sky and sea;

Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty,

Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

Section 2: Hymn 77:

God is my strong salvation; What foe have I to fear?

In darkness and temptation, My light, my help is near:

Though hosts encamp around me, Firm in the fight I stand;

What terror can confound me, With God at my right hand?

Place on the Lord reliance; My heart, with courage wait;

His truth be thine affiance, When faint and desolate:

His might thy heart shall strengthen, His love thy joy increase;

Thy day shall mercy lengthen: The Lord will give thee peace.

Section 3: Hymn 95:

He leadeth me, O blessed thought, O words with heavenly comfort fraught.

Whate’er I do, where’er I be, Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

REFRAIN: He leadeth me, He leadeth me, By His own hand He leadeth me.

His faithful follower I would be, For by His hand He leadeth me.

Sometimes mid scenes of deepest gloom, Sometimes where Eden’s bowers bloom, By waters calm, o’er troubled sea, Still ‘tis His hand that leadeth me.


Section 4: Hymn 134:

I look to Thee in every need, And never look in vain;

I feel Thy touch, eternal Love, And all is well again:

The thought of Thee is mightier far Than sin and pain and sorrow are.

Thy calmness bends serene above, My restlessness to still;

Around me flows Thy quickening life To nerve my faltering will:

Thy presence fills my solitude; Thy providence turns all to good.

Embosomed deep in Thy dear love, Held in Thy law, I stand:

Thy hand in all things I behold, And all things in Thy hand.

Thou leadest me by unsought ways, Thou turn’st my mourning into praise.

Section 5: Hymn 169:

Lead, kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom, Lead Thou me on;

The night is dark, and I am far from home, Lead Thou me on.

Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see The distant scene; one step enough for me.

I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou Shouldst lead me on;

I loved to choose and see my path; but now Lead Thou me on.

I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears, Pride ruled my will:

remember not past years.

So long Thy power hath blest me, sure it still Will lead me on

O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent, till The night is gone,

And with the morn those angel faces smile,

Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile.

Section 6: Hymn 164:

Joy to the world, the Lord is come, Let earth receive her King;

Let every heart prepare him room, And heaven and nature sing.

No more let sin and sorrow grow, Nor thorns infest the ground;

Where’er he comes, his blessings flow, And hope and joy abound.

He rules the world with truth and grace,

And makes the nations prove The glories of his righteousness And wonders of his love.
