HYMN

Love's endeavour, love's expense            496 

 

Morning glory, starlit sky, 

soaring music, scholars' truth,   

flight of swallows, autumn leaves, 

memory's treasure, grace of youth:

 

open are the gifts of God, 

gifts of love to mind and sense;  

hidden is love's agony, 

love's endeavour, love's expense.

 

Love that gives, gives ever more,  

gives with zeal, with eager hands,   

spares not, keeps not, all outpours, 

ventures all, its all expends.

 

Drained is love in making full, 

bound in setting others free, 

poor in making many rich, 

weak in giving power to be.

 

Therefore he who shows us God 

helpless hangs upon the tree; 

and the nails and crown of thorns 

tell of what God's love must be.

 

Here is God: no monarch he, 

throned in easy state to reign; 

here is God, whose arms of love 

aching, spent, the world sustain.

                In the name of the Father,

                and of the Son,

                and of the Holy Spirit. 

All           Amen.

THE GREETING

hh

                Grace, mercy and peace

                from God our Father

                and the Lord Jesus Christ

                be with you.

All           and also with you.

 

PRAYER OF PREPARATION 

hh

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.

 

 

PRAYERS OF PENITENCE

jj

We are invited to confession.

jj

                God so loved the world

                that he gave his only Son Jesus Christ

                to save us from our sins,

                to be our advocate in heaven,

                and to bring us to eternal life.

jj

                Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith,

                firmly resolved to keep God's commandments

                and to live in love and peace with all.

 

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.

The minister pronounces the absolution  

jj

                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.

 

THE GLORIA  

 

All           Glory to God in the highest,

                and peace to his people on earth.

                Lord God, heavenly King,

                almighty God and Father,

                we worship you, we give you thanks,

                we praise you for your glory.

 

                Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,

                Lord God, Lamb of God,

                you take away the sin of the world:

                have mercy on us;

                you are seated at the right hand of the Father:

                receive our prayer.

 

                For you alone are the Holy One,

                you alone are the Lord,

                you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,

                with the Holy Spirit,

                in the glory of God the Father.

                Amen.

Reader  This is the word of the Lord.

All           Thanks be to God.

HYMN

My God, I love thee                65

 

My God, I love thee; not because

I hope for heaven thereby,  

nor yet because who love thee not 

are lost eternally.

 

Thou, O my Jesus, thou didst me  

upon the cross embrace; 

for me didst bear the nails and spear, 

and manifold disgrace

 

and griefs and torments numberless,  

and sweat of agony; 

yea, death itself — and all for me  

who was thine enemy.

 

Then why, O blessed Jesu Christ, 

should I not love thee well? 

not for the sake of winning heaven, 

nor of escaping hell;

 

not from the hope of gaining aught, 

not seeking a reward; 

but as thyself hast loved me, 

O ever-loving Lord.

 

So would I love thee, dearest Lord, 

and in thy praise will sing; 

solely because thou art my God, 

and my most loving King.

THE CREED

the

All           I believe in God, the Father almighty,

                creator of heaven and earth.

                I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

                who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

                born of the Virgin Mary,

                suffered under Pontius Pilate,

                was crucified, died, and was buried;

                he descended to the dead.

                On the third day he rose again;

                he ascended into heaven,

                he is seated at the right hand of the Father,

                and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

                I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church,

                the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,

                the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

HYMN

The name of Jesus                122

 

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds 

in a believer's ear!

It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds, 

and drives away his fear.

 

It makes the wounded spirit whole, 

and calms the troubled breast;

'tis manna to the hungry soul, 

and to the weary rest.

 

Dear name! the rock on which I build, 

my shield and hiding-place, 

my never-failing treasury filled 

with boundless stores of grace.

 

Jesus, my Shepherd, Brother, Friend, 

my Prophet, Priest, and King, 

my Lord, my Life, my Way, my End, 

accept the praise I bring.

 

Weak is the effort of my heart, 

and cold my warmest thought; 

but when I see thee as thou art, 

I'll praise thee as I ought.

 

Till then I would thy love proclaim 

with every fleeting breath; 

and may the music of thy name 

refresh my soul in death.

THE PREPARATION OF THE TABLE AND OFFERTORY

the

Please remember the church and save up your offertory to give to the church when the churches re-open for public worship. Thank you. 

the

                God of grace, 

                your limitless love gave us everything in Jesus, 

                and through belief in him, 

                you offer us life in your kingdom. 

                Accept our gifts, but as we give, 

                warm and soften our hearts 

                to lead us into lives which reflect your generosity.                                                              Change us we pray.

All           Amen.

THE EUCHARISTIC PRAYER

the

                The Lord be with you     

All           and also with you.                    

the

                Lift up your hearts.

All           We lift them to the Lord.

the

                Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All           It is right to give thanks and praise.

the

                It is indeed right, it is our duty and our joy,

                at all times and I all places to give you thanks and praise,

                holy Father, heavenly King, almighty and eternal God,

                through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord.

the

                For he is your living Word;

                through him you have created all things from the beginning,

                and formed us in your own image.

                Through him you have freed us from the slavery of sin,

                giving him to be born of a woman and to die upon the cross;                                          you raised him from the dead and exalted him to your right hand on high.

                Through him you have sent upon us your holy and life-giving Spirit,

                and made us a people for your own possession.

the

                Therefore with angels and archangels,

                and with all the company of heaven,

                we proclaim your great and glorious name,

                for ever praising you and saying:

the

All           Holy, holy, holy Lord,

                God of power and might,

                heaven and earth are full of your glory.

                Hosanna in the highest.

                Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

                Hosanna in the highest.

the

                Accept our praises, heavenly Father,

                through your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ,

                and as we follow his example and obey his command,

                grant that by the power of your Holy Spirit

                our gifts of bread and wine may be to us his body and his blood;

                who, in the same night that he was betrayed,                     

                took bread and gave you thanks;

                he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying:

the

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

                do this in remembrance of me.' 

the

                In the same way, after supper he took the cup and gave you thanks;

                he gave it to them, saying:

the

                Drink this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant, 

                which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins.

                Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.

the

                Therefore, heavenly Father, we remember his offering of himself

                made once for all upon the cross;

                we proclaim his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension;

                we look for the coming of your kingdom,

                and with this bread and this cup

                we make the memorial of Christ your Son our Lord.

the

                Great is the mystery of faith:

All           Christ has died:

                Christ is risen:

                Christ will come again.

the

                Accept through him, our great high priest,

                this our sacrifice of thanks and praise,

                and as we eat and drink these holy gifts

                in the presence of your divine majesty,

                renew us by your Spirit, inspire us with your love

                and unite us in the body of your Son,

                Jesus Christ our Lord.

        

                Through him, and with him, and in him,

                in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

                with all who stand before you in earth and heaven,

                we worship you, Father almighty,

                in songs of everlasting praise:

the

All          Blessing and honour and glory and power

                be yours for ever and ever. Amen.

                on earth as it is in heaven.

                Give us this day our daily bread.
