Father Mother,
“Father is man’s divine Principle, Love. Son is God’s man —His image or spiritual likeness. Holy Ghost is Divine Science, the Messiah or Comforter. Jesus in the flesh was the prophet or way shower to Life, Truth, and Love, and out of the flesh Jesus was the Christ, the spiritual idea, or image and likeness of God.” 
Mary Baker Eddy

Hymn
The lamp that lights all darkness,
Is drawn from sorrows vein,
Angels tend its lonely wick,
To see its glow remain,
Its rays spark soft and gentle,
Its red bears many scars,
Hang in the sky like ruby stones,
Amidst the twinkling stars.
The Angel’s blessed scourges,
Are brought to feed the flame,
Tortures, sorrows, death and woes,
As evil falls away,
The lamp can e’er be followed.
But never can be found,
Always lighting higher paths,
Which lead to holy ground

Psalm 90 (91)
His wings hide you;  night holds no terrors for you to be scared
{90:1} The Praise of a Canticle, of David. Whoever dwells with the assistance of the Most High will abide in the protection of the God of heaven.
{90:2} He will say to the Lord, “You are my supporter and my refuge.” My God, I will hope in him.
{90:3} For he has freed me from the snare of those who go hunting, and from the harsh word.
{90:4} He will overshadow you with his shoulders, and you will hope under his wings.
{90:5} His truth will surround you with a shield. You will not be afraid: before the terror of the night,
{90:6} before the arrow flying in the day, before the troubles that wander in the darkness, nor of invasion and the midday demon.
{90:7} A thousand will fall before your side and ten thousand before your right hand. Yet it will not draw near you.
{90:8} So then, truly, you will consider with your eyes, and you will see the retribution of sinners.
{90:9} For you, O Lord, are my hope. You have set the Most High as your refuge.
{90:10} Disaster will not draw near to you, and the scourge will not approach your tabernacle.
{90:11} For he has given his Angels charge over you, so as to preserve you in all your ways.
{90:12} With their hands, they will carry you, lest you hurt your foot against a stone.
{90:13} You will walk over the asp and the king serpent, and you will trample the lion and the dragon.
{90:14} Because he has hoped in me, I will free him. I will protect him because he has known my name.
{90:15} He will cry out to me, and I will heed him. I am with him in tribulation. I will rescue him, and I will glorify him.
{90:16} I will fill him with length of days. And I will reveal to him my salvation.
His wings hide you;  night holds no terrors for you to be scared

Reading
Apocalypse 22:4-5
{22:4} And they shall see his face. And his name shall be on their foreheads.
{22:5} And night shall be no more. And they will not need the light of a lamp, nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illuminate them. And they shall reign forever and ever.

Canticle Nunc Dimittis
Luke 2:  29-32
{2:29} “Now you may dismiss your servant in peace, O Lord, according to your word.
{2:30} For my eyes have seen your salvation,
{2:31} which you have prepared before the face of all peoples:
{2:32} the light of revelation to the nations and the glory of your people Israel.”

Let us pray.

Taken from Science and health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy

Our Father which art in heaven,
Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious,

Hallowed be Thy name.
Adorable One.

Thy kingdom come.
Thy kingdom is come; Thou art ever-present.

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Enable us to know, — as in heaven, so on earth, —
God is omnipotent, supreme.

Give us this day our daily bread;
Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections;

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And Love is reflected in love;

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil;
And God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth
us from sin, disease, and death.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love,
over all, and All.
