Contents: Prepare ye --
Come and see --
Stranger in a strange land --
O sing unto the Lord a new song --
Let us learn together what is good --
We all, like sheep, have gone astray --
Caught up together --
Troubled on every side, yet not distressed --
Whether ye be in the faith --
The workers are few --
Near in their mouth, but far from their mind --
The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly --
There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed --
I made a covenant with my eyes --
Give us aid against the enemy --
One king shall be king to them all --
Test me, O Lord, and try me --
Beauty for ashes--
Epilogue.
Responsibility: Kevin Roose.
