New Providence Presbyterian Church, Raphine VA March 9 2014

New photos of the organ are now on the OHS Database

Prelude:  "Epitaphe"  op.31 #4  (Louis Vierne 1870-1937)

Introit:  "Blest Be the Tie"

Hymn "All Mankind fell in Adam's fall" 
Sung to the tune of "The Doxology"
(The version starting each phrase with a quarter note)
All man-kind fell in A-dam's fall,
One com-mon sin in-fects us all;
From sire to son the bane de-scends,
And over all the curse im-pends.
Through all man's powers cor-rup-tion creeps
And him in dread-ful bond-age keeps;
In guilt he draws his in-fant breath
And reaps its fruits of woe and death.
From hearts de-praved, to e-vil prone,
Flow thoughts and deeds of sin alone;
God's im-age lost, the dark-ened soul
Nor seeks nor finds its heav'nly goal.
But Christ, the sec-ond Adam, came
To bear our sin and woe and shame,
To be our Life, our Light, our Way,
Our only Hope, our only Stay.
As by one man all man-kind fell
And, born in sin, was doomed to hell,
So by one Man, who took our place,
We all re-ceived the gift of grace.
We thank Thee, Christ; new life is ours,
New light, new hope, new strength, new powers:
This grace our ev-ery way at-tend
Un-til we reach our jour-ney's end!
