*He shall feed his flock (from Messiah, G.F. Handel)

And the ears of the deaf unstopped
Then shall the lame man leap as an hart
And the tongue of the dumb shall sing.
Aria.
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd
And He shall gather the lambs with His arms
And carry them in His bosom
And gently lead those that are with young.
(Isaiah 40:11)

*Greater love hath no man

Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.
Love is strong as death.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree,
That we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness.
Ye are washed, ye are sanctified, ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation;
That ye should show forth the praises of him who hath call’d you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
I beseech you brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies, a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto to God, which is your reasonable service.
