THE HYMN: "The Lord's my Shepherd" Psalm XXIII

The Lord's my Shepherd, I'll not want;

He makes me down to lie

In pastures green; He leadeth me

The quiet waters by.

[corresponds to unlabeled page 6 of MTSO Apartments Dedication Service]

My soul He doth restore again;

And me to walk doth make

Within the paths of righteousness,

E'en for His own name's sake.

Yea, though I walk in death's dark vale,

Yet will I fear no ill:

For Thou art with me, and Thy rod

And staff me comfort still.

My table Thou has furnished

In presence of my foes;

My head Thou dost with oil anoint,

And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life

Shall surely follow me;

And in God's house for evermore

My dwelling place shall be.

Amen.

THE SCRIPTURE LESSON -- Dean Van Bogard Dunn, B.D., Ph.D., D.D.

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understand-

ing. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the

gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies; and all the things

thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right

hand; and in her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness,

and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her;

and happy is everyone that retaineth her. The Lord by wisdom hath founded the

earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. By his knowledge the

depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. My son, let not them

depart from thine eyes; keep sound wisdom and discretion: so shall they be life

unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck. Then shalt thou walk in thy way, safely, and

thy foot shall not stumble.

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that

leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: because strait is the

gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken

him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended,

and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell

not: for it was founded upon a rock. And everyone that heareth these sayings of

mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house

upon the sand: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew,

and beat upon that house; and it fell; and great was the fall of it.

THE ADDRESS

Bishop Fred G. Holloway, B.D., D.D., LL.D.

THE ACT OF PRESENTATION

President John W. Dickhaut, B.D., D.D., S.T.D.

Dr. John L. Williams, B.D., D.D.

THE ACT OF DEDICATION

Dearly beloved, it is right and proper that buildings erected for such service

in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ should be formally and devoutly

set apart for their special uses. For such a dedication we are now assembled. And,

as the dedication of this building is vain without the solemn consecration of those

whose gifts and labors it represents, let us now give ourselves anew to the service of

God: our souls, that they may be renewed after the image of Christ; our bodies,

that they may be fit temples for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit; and our labors

and business, that they may be according to God's holy will, and that their fruit

may tend to the glory of his name and the advancement of his kingdom.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we dedicate

this building to the holy ministry of education.

Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her for she is thy life.

We dedicate this building to the spiritual enrichment of all who shall come here

in pursuit of knowledge.

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

We dedicate this building to the care and nurture of the family, that those who

shall dwell here, being established in mutual love and affection, may abide in quiet-

ness and peace, in prayer and praise.

Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the vic-

tory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Thine.

THE PRAYER OF DEDICATION

Let us pray.

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, whose eyes are ever toward the righteous,

and whose ears are ever open unto their cry: graciously accept, we pray thee, this

building which we now dedicate to thee, to thy service, and to thy glory. Grant

that those who shall live here, being consecrated to the sacred office of the holy

ministry, may with pure minds, upright purpose, and steadfast endeavor, seek always

to learn and to do thy holy will, that thy name may be glorified and thy saving

health be made known to all men; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O God, who through thy Holy Spirit dost illumine the minds and sanctify the

lives of those whom thou does call to the work of pastors and teachers; look with

favor upon all schools for the instruction and discipline of those who are to serve

in the sacred ministry of thy Church. Bless those who teach and those who learn,

that they may apply themselves with such diligence to the knowledge which is able

to make men wise unto salvation, and submit themselves with such ready obedience

to the law of thy Son our Savior, that they may fulfill their ministry with joy;

through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
