¶THE GATHERING

 

HYMN 

At the name of Jesus            148 A&M

 

At the name of Jesus 

every knee shall bow, 

every tongue confess him    

King of glory now :

'tis the Father's pleasure

we should call him Lord, 

who from the beginning 

was the mighty Word.

 

At his voice creation 

sprang at once to sight,     

all the angel faces, 

all the hosts of light, 

thrones and dominations, 

stars upon their way,  

all the heavenly orders,  

in their great array.

 

Humbled for a season,   

to receive a name  

from the lips of sinners  

unto whom he came,  

faithfully he bore it 

spotless to the last, 

brought it back victorious, 

when from death he passed :

 

Bore it up triumphant 

with its human light,  

through all ranks of creatures

to the central height, 

to the throne of Godhead, 

to the Father's breast; 

filled it with the glory 

of that perfect rest.

 

Name him, brothers, name him, 

with love strong as death,

but with awe and wonder

 and with bated breath:  

he is God the Saviour,  

he is Christ the Lord,   

ever to be worshipped, 

trusted, and adored.

 

In your hearts enthrone him;  

there let him subdue  

all that is not holy, 

all that is not true: 

crown him as your Captain

in temptation's hour;  

let his will enfold you 

in its light and power.

 

Brothers, this Lord Jesus 

shall return again, 

with his Father's glory,  

with his angel train; 

for all wreaths of empire 

meet upon his brow,  

and our hearts confess him 

King of glory now.

            In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

All             Amen.

 

            The light and peace of Jesus Christ be with you

All            and also with you.

 

            The glory of the Lord has risen upon us.

All             Let us rejoice and sing God's praise for ever.

 

            Alleluia. Christ is risen.

All            He is risen indeed. Alleluia.

 

PRAYER OF PREPARATION

 

All            Almighty God,

                to whom all hearts are open,

                all desires known,

                and from whom no secrets are hidden:

                cleanse the thoughts of our hearts

                by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit,

                that we may perfectly love you,

                and worthily magnify your holy name;

                through Christ our Lord.

                Amen.

            confessing our sins with a sincere and true heart.       

 

All           Almighty God, our heavenly Father,

                we have sinned against you

                and against our neighbour

                in thought and word and deed,

                through negligence, through weakness,

                through our own deliberate fault.

                We are truly sorry

                and repent of all our sins.

                For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,

                who died for us,

                forgive us all that is past

                and grant that we may serve you 

                in newness of life

                to the glory of your name.

                Amen.

 

            Almighty God,

            who forgives all who truly repent,

            have mercy upon you,

            pardon and deliver you from all your sins,

            confirm and strengthen you in all goodness,

            and keep you in life eternal;

            through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All            Amen.

 

SUNG GLORIA 

 

All           Glory be to God in heaven,

                Songs of joy and peace we bring, 

                Thankful hearts and voices raising,

                Lord, we thank you, 

                Lord, we bless you, 

                Glory be to God our King. 

 

                Lamb of God, who on your shoulders

                Bore the load of this world's sin,

                Only Son of God the Father

                You have brought us peace within:

                Lord, have mercy, Christ, have mercy, 

                Now your glorious reign begins. 

 

                You, O Son of God, are holy

                You we praise with one accord;

                None in heaven or earth is like you,

                Only you are Christ the Lord 

                With the Father and the Spirit, 

                Ever worshipped and adored.

 HYMN

The head that once was crowned                141 A&M

 

The head that once was crowned with thorns 

is crowned with glory now: 

a royal diadem adorns 

the mighty Victor's brow.

 

The highest place that heaven affords 

is his, is his by right, 

the King of kings, and Lord of lords, 

and heaven's eternal Light;

 

the joy of all who dwell above, 

the joy of all below, 

to whom he manifests his love, 

and grants his name to know.

 

To them the Cross, with all its shame, 

with all its grace, is given:

their name an everlasting name, 

their joy the joy of heaven.

 

They suffer with their Lord below,   

they reign with him above;  

their profit and their joy to know  

the mystery of his love.

 

The Cross he bore is life and health,  

though shame and death to him;  

his people's hope, his people's wealth, 

their everlasting theme.

PREPARATION OF THE TABLE AND THE OFFERTORY 

 

            Gracious God, 

            through the resurrection of our Lord Jesus, 

            you have given immeasurable grace to us. 

            May our offerings reflect the grace we have received,                                         and symbolise lives committed to the service of our risen Lord.

All            Amen.

THE EUCHARISTIC PRAYER  

 

            The Lord is here.     

All             his Spirit is with us.                    

 

            Lift up your hearts.

All            We lift them to the Lord.

 

            Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All             It is right to give thanks and praise.

           

            It is right to praise you, Father, Lord of all creation;

            in your love you made us for yourself.

           

            When we turned away you did not reject us,

            but came to meet us in your Son.

All            You embraced us as your children

                 and welcomed us to sit and eat with you.

           

            In Christ you shared our life

            that we might live in him and he in us.

All            He opened his arms of love upon the cross

                 and made for all the perfect sacrifice for sin.

            On the night he was betrayed,

            at supper with his friends

            he took bread, and gave you thanks;

            he broke it and gave it to them, saying:

          

            Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you;

            do this in remembrance of me.

            At the end of supper, taking the cup of wine,

           he gave you thanks, and said:

 

           Drink this, all of you; 

           this is my blood of the new covenant,

           which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins;

           do this in remembrance of me.

           As we proclaim his death 

           and celebrate his rising in glory,

           send your Holy Spirit that this bread and this wine

           may be to the body and blood of your dear Son.

           

           With your whole Church throughout the world

           we offer you this sacrifice of praise

           and lift our voice to join the eternal song of heaven:

           

All            Holy, holy, holy Lord,

                 God of power and might,

                 Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

                 Hosanna in the highest.

THE LORD'S PRAYER

 

            Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us

           

All            Our Father, who art in heaven,

                 hallowed be thy name;

                 thy kingdom come; thy will be done;

                 on earth as it is in heaven.

                 Give us this day our daily bread.

                 And forgive us our trespasses,

                 as we forgive those who trespass against us.

                 And lead us not into temptation;

                 but deliver us from evil.

                 For thine is the kingdom,

                 the power and the glory,

                 for ever and ever.

                 Amen.

HYMN

 

See the Conqueror mounts in triumph                88 A&M

 

See the Conqueror mounts in triumph, 

see the King in royal state  

riding on the clouds his chariot  

to his heavenly palace gate;  

hark, the choirs of angel voices  

joyful alleluias sing, 

and the portals high are lifted 

to receive their heavenly King.

 

 

Who is this that comes in glory,

with the trump of jubilee?

Lord of battles, God of armies, 

he has gained the victory; 

he who on the Cross did suffer, 

he who from the grave arose, 

he has vanquished sin and Satan, 

he by death has spoiled his foes.

 

He has raised our human nature  

on the clouds to God's right hand;

there we sit in heavenly places, 

there with him in glory stand:

Jesus reigns, adored by angels;  

man with God is on the throne; 

mighty Lord, in thine ascension  

we by faith behold our own.

 

See him who is gone before us 

heavenly mansions to prepare, 

see him who is ever pleading 

for us with prevailing prayer,

see him who with sound of trumpet 

and with his angelic train,  

summoning the world to judgement,  

on the clouds will come again. 

 

Glory be to God the Father; 

glory be to God the Son, 

dying, ris'n, ascending for us, 

who the heavenly realm has won; 

glory to the Holy Spirit:  

to One God in Persons Three 

glory both in earth and heaven, 

glory, endless glory be.

              Go in the peace of Christ. Alleluia, alleluia.

All            Thanks be to God. Alleluia, alleluia.
