     18 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not? 19 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. 20 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. 21 No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse. 22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.(KJV)

1. Lord Jesus Christ, be present now, 
Our hearts in true devotion bow, 
Thy Spirit send with grace divine, 
And let Thy truth within us shine. 

2. Unseal our lips to sing Thy praise, 
Our souls to Thee in worship raise, 
Make strong our faith, increase our light 
That we may know Thy name aright; 

3. Until we join the hosts that cry, 
“Holy art Thou, O Lord, most high!” 
And in the light of that blest place 
Fore’er behold Thee face to face. 

4. Glory to God the Father, Son, 
And Holy Spirit, Three in One! 
To Thee, O blessed Trinity, 
Be praise throughout eternity!
