Twenty-Sixth Sunday after Pentecost

November 17, 2013, 11am




               “Even so, Lord, quickly come,

                bring thy final harvest home;

                gather thou thy people in,

                free from sorrow, free from sin,

                there, forever purified,

                in thy presence to abide;

               come, with all thine angels, come,

               raise the glorious harvest home.”
