THE LAST VERSE OF ETERNAL FATHER

Our brethren shield in danger's hour.
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them whereso'er they go.
Thus evermore shall rise to thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

NOTICES
We are most grateful to the Allegro Singers  and Hong Kong Airlines/Hong Kong Express Choir for leading the singing in our worship tonight and to the organist Ms Fan Lai.  Our thanks too to those who read the lessons.  There will be a collection during the singing of “While Shepherds watched their flocks by night”, which will be for the chaplains appeal for  Christmas Gifts for seafarers.




We  wish  you  and  yours  loved  ones  all  the  blessings  of  Christmas.
