From April 01, 2018:

The scriptures for the week are Psalm 150 and Ephesians 5:15-20 which tell us to "Praise the Lord!' and "… be filled with the Spirit, as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." The embodiment of these scriptures was the great hymn writer, Frances (Fanny) Crosby (1820-1914). Shortly after birth she was blind, but never considered this a handicap or burden. She wrote more than 8,000 hymns, of which seven are in the United Methodist Hymnal. These seven were used in the worship service on Sunday, April 8, 2018 and one additional Fanny Crosby hymn Heavenly Father, We Beseech Thee was our Benediction for the day. The refrain's words are as follows:

Bless the words we here have spoken, Offered prayer and cheerful strain; If Thy will, O Lord, we pray Thee, Grant we all may meet again.
