LUSTSPIEL OVERTURE Keler Bela Orchestra Religious exultation—the height of joy and happiness. THE OMNIPOTENCE (Great is Jehovah) Schubert--Lizst Male Chorus and Orchestra Walter Reid, Tenor Great is Jehovah the Lord For Heaven and earth testify to His great power. 'Tis heard in the fierce raging storm, In the torrent's loud thundering roar; Great is Jehovah the Lord, Mighty is His power. 'Tis heard in the rustling of leaves in the forest, Seen in the waving of golden fields, In loveliest flowers' gaudy array, 'Tis seen in myriad stars that stud the heavens. Fierce it sounds in the thunder's loud roll And flames in the lightning's brightly quivering flash. Yet clearer thy throbbing heart to thee Proclaims Jehovah's power. The Lord God Almighty. Look thou praying to Heaven And hope for grace and for mercy. Great is Jehovah the Lord. THE LORD IS MY LIGHT Frances Allitsen Mildred Crawford Robinson, Soprano Orchestra Words from Psalm XXVII ANGELS OF MERCY Irving Berlin Mildred Crawford Robinson, Soprano Lena Ediger Wallace, Organ Angels of Mercy There's so much to do.

God give us light to see the right, In dealings with all men. And we our country ever free, Shall go on to the end. Teach us, O Lord, that right is might, And this we shall proclaim. America the land we love, Where freedom ever reigns. Where warring tribes across the seas, In bloody conflicts rage. God of our Fathers, may we keep Unstained our country's page. Our grateful thanks to Thee we give, That we can still maintain On even keel our ship of state, Where peace and freedom reign.
