ABOUT THE INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC
The prelude is “Berceuse” by French composer and organist
Gabriel Faure (1845-1924 A.D.).
The offertory is “Near To the Heart of God” by American composer and Presbyterian minister Cleveland McAfee (1866-1944 A.D.). The words to this composition are very beautiful. You might wish to read them as the offertory is played. They are printed below.
NEAR TO THE HEART OF GOD
There is a place of quiet rest near to the heart of God;
a place where sin cannot molest, near to the heart of God.
Refrain: O Jesus, blessed Redeemer, sent from the heart of God;
hold us who wait before Thee near to the heart of God.
There is a place of comfort sweet near to the heart of God;
a place where we our Savior meet near to the heart of God. (Refrain)
There is a place of full release near to the heart of God;
a place where all is joy and peace near to the heart of God. (Refrain)
The postlude is “Fugue in C Minor” by German composer
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750 A.D.).
After Coffee Hour we will rehearse “Let Everything That Hath Breath”.
