605 Through the night of doubt and sorrow

606 Thy hand, O God, has guided

607 Thy Kingdom come, O God

608 Thy Kingdom come! on bended knee

609 To God be the glory, great things he has done

610 To the Name of our salvation

611 We bring you, Lord, our prayer and praise

612 We have a gospel to proclaim

613 We pray for peace

614 We sing for all the unsung saints

615 What shall I do my God to love

616 When a knight won his spurs

617 When all thy mercies, O my God

618 When in our music God is glorified

619 When morning gilds the skies

620 Where cross the crowded ways of life

621 Who would true valor see

622 Will you come and follow me?

623 With glorious clouds encompassed round

624 With joy we meditate the grace

625 Word of God, come down on earth

626 Ye holy angels bright

627 Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim

628 Ye that know the Lord is gracious
