Footprints
in the Sand


One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints.
Other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
That during the low periods of my life,
When I was suffering from
Anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord,
That if I followed you,
You would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
The most trying periods of my life
There have only been one
Set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
You have not been there for me?”

The Lord replied,
“The times when you have
Seen only one set of footprints,
Is when I carried you.”

Recessional Hymn “Be Thou My Vision”
Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me, save that thou art:
thou my best thought both by day and by night,
waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord.
Thou my soul’s shelter, and thou my high tow’r,
raise thou me heav’n-ward, O Pow’r of my pow’r.

Riches I heed not, nor vain, empty praise,
thou mine inheritance, now and always:
thou and thou only, the first in my heart,
great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.

Light of my soul, after victory won,
may I reach heaven’s joys, O heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

An Irish Prayer* Gerrit Willem Lamain
*Composed for and dedicated to Scott Patrick and family

The Laborer’s Task
Now the laborer’s task is o’er,
Now the battle day is past,
Now upon the farther shore,
Lands the voyager at last.
Chorus
Father in Thy gracious keeping,
Leave we now Thy servant sleeping,
Father in Thy gracious keeping,
Leave we now Thy servant sleeping.
There the tears of earth are dried,
There its hidden things are clear,
There the work of earth is tried,
By a juster judge than here.
Chorus
There the sinful souls that turn,
To the cross their dying eyes,
All the love of Christ shall learn,
At His feet in paradise.
Chorus
Earth to earth, and dust to dust,
Calmly now the words we say,
Left behind we wait in trust,
For the resurrection day.

GATHERING
Welcome in the name of Jesus, the Savior of the world.
We are gathered to worship, to proclaim Christ crucified
and risen, to remember before God our brother Scott,
to give thanks for his life, to commend him to our merciful
redeemer, and to comfort one another in our grief.
THANKSGIVING FOR BAPTISM
When we were baptized in Christ Jesus, we were baptized
into his death. We were buried therefore with him by
baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the
dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live a new
life. For if we have been united with him in a death like
his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection
like his.

All who are baptized into Christ have put on Christ. In his
baptism, Scott was clothed with Christ. In the day of
Christ’s coming, he shall be clothed with glory.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun,
we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
than when we’d first begun.
Apostles’ Creed
With the whole church, let us confess our faith,
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven
and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who
was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin
Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died,
and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the
third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is
seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come
to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the
resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
Amen.
Prayers of Intercession
Let us pray to our Lord Jesus Christ who said,
“I am the resurrection and the life.”
Pastor: … Lord in your mercy
People: Hear our prayer.

sorrow on you, we may know the consolation of your love;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
WORD
Reading
“I asked for strength...And God gave me difficulties to
make me strong. I asked for wisdom And God gave me
problems to solve. I asked for courage and God gave me
danger to overcome. I asked for love and God gave me
troubled people to help. I asked for favors and God gave
me opportunities. I received nothing I wanted….yet I have
everything I needed. Trust in God.” (Anonymous)
Reading Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me
lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters;
he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his
name's sake. Even though I walk through the darkest
valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your
staff— they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in
the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow
me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of
the LORD my whole life long.

The Holy Gospel according to St. John,
Glory to you, O Lord.
Gospel John 1:1-9
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with
God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with
God. All things came into being through him, and without
him not one thing came into being. What has come into be-
ing in him was life,

and the life was the light of all
people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness
did not overcome it. There was a man sent from God,
whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify to
the light, so that all might believe through him. He himself
was not the light, but he came to testify to the light. The
true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the
world.
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to you, O Christ.

Hymn “Amazing Grace”
Amazing grace! - how sweet the sound -
that saved a wretch like me! I once was lost,
but now am found; was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed!

Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come;
‘tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me;
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.
