OPENING HYMN

(Please stand as you’re able)

Love Divine, All Loves Excelling

Love divine, all loves excelling,

     joy of heaven, to earth come down,

fix in us thy humble dwelling,

     all thy faithful mercies crown.

Jesus, thou art all compassion,

     pure, unbounded love thou art;

visit us with thy salvation,

     enter every trembling heart.

 

Come, almighty to deliver,

     let us all thy life receive;

suddenly return, and never,

     nevermore thy temples leave.

Thee we would be always blessing,

     serve thee as thy hosts above,

pray, and praise thee without ceasing,

     glory in thy perfect love.

 

Finish then thy new creation;

     pure and spotless let us be;

let us see thy great salvation

     perfectly restored in thee:

changed from glory into glory,

     till in heaven we take our place,

till we cast our crowns before thee,

     lost in wonder, love, and praise.

THE SERMON

Bishop Andrew Williams

THE NICENE CREED

(Please stand as you’re able)

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, visible and invisible.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, eternally be-gotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

(Seated or kneeling)

(The leader ends each prayer:) Lord, in your mercy,
(The people respond:) Hear our prayer.

THE CONFESSION & ABSOLUTION OF SIN

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

THE PEACE

(Please stand as you’re able)

Celebrant:  The Peace of the Lord be always with you.

People:  And with your spirit. 

THE HOLY EUCHARIST

OFFERTORY HYMN

(Seated)

I Heard The Voice of Jesus Say

I heard the voice of Jesus say,

     “Come unto me and rest;

lay down, thou weary one, lay down

     thy head upon my breast.”

I came to Jesus as I was,

     weary and worn and sad;

I found in him a resting place,

     and he has made me glad.

 

I heard the voice of Jesus say,

     “Behold, I freely give

the living water; thirsty one,

     stoop down and drink and live.”

I came to Jesus, and I drank

     of that life-giving stream;

my thirst was quenched, my soul revived,

     and now I live in him.

 

I heard the voice of Jesus say,

     “I am this dark world’s light;

look unto me, your morn shall rise,

     and all thy day be bright.”

I looked to Jesus, and I found

     in him my star, my sun;

and in that light of life I’ll walk

     till travelling days are done.

Words: 1846, Horatius Bonar (1808–1889)
Music: Kingsfold, traditional English melody

THE SURSUM CORDA

The Lord be with you.
And with your spirit.
Lift up your hearts.
We lift them up to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give him thanks and praise.

It is right, our duty and our joy . . .

Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name:

THE SANCTUS

↓ 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 PRAYER OF CONSECRATION

Holy and gracious Father . . .
Therefore, we proclaim the mystery of faith:
Christ has died.
Christ is risen.
Christ will come again.
We celebrate the memorial of our redemption . . .

THE LORD’S PRAYER

(Seated or kneeling)

And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to pray :

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, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

(Matthew 6:9–13)

THE FRACTION

Alleluia. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us;
Therefore let us keep the feast. Alleluia.

A PRAYER FOR SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

(For those who are watching online)

Dear Jesus, I believe that you are truly present in the Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to possess you within my soul. And since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, I beseech you to come spiritually into my heart. I unite myself to you, together with all your faithful people gathered around every altar of your Church, and I embrace you with all the affections of my soul. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

COMMUNION HYMN

The King Of Love My Shepherd Is

The King of love my shepherd is,

     whose goodness faileth never;

I nothing lack if I am his,

     and he is mine for ever.

 

Where streams of living water flow,

     my ransomed soul he leadeth,

and where the verdant pastures grow,

with food celestial feedeth.

 

Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,

     but yet in love he sought me,

and on his shoulder gently laid,

     and home, rejoicing, brought me.

 

In death’s dark vale I fear no ill

     with thee, dear Lord, beside me;

thy rod and staff my comfort still,

     thy cross before to guide me.

 

Thou spread’st a table in my sight;

     thy unction grace bestoweth;

and oh, what transport of delight

     from thy pure chalice floweth!

 

And so through all the length of days

     thy goodness faileth never:

Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise

     within thy house for ever.

Words: Henry W. Baker (1821–1877)
Based on Psalm 23
Music: St. Columba, traditional Irish melody

COMMUNION HYMN

In Your Mercy, Lord, You Called Me

In your mercy, Lord, you called me,

     taught my sin-filled heart and mind,

else this world had still enthralled me,

     and to glory kept me blind.

 

Lord, I did not freely choose you

     till by grace you set me free;

for my heart would still refuse you

     had your love not chosen me.

 

Now my heart sets none above you,

     for your grace alone I thirst,

knowing well, that if I love you,

     you, O Lord, have loved me first.

COMMUNION SONG

Were You There When They Crucified My Lord

Were you there when they crucified my Lord
Were you there when they crucified my Lord
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord

Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb

Were you there when the stone was rolled away
Were you there when the stone was rolled away
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when the stone was rolled away

Were you there when they crucified my Lord
Were you there when they crucified my Lord
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord

Verse 1
You hold the reins on the sun and the moon
Like horses driven by kings
You cover the mountains, the valleys below
With the breadth of Your mighty wings

All treasures of wisdom and things to be known
Are hidden inside Your hand
And in this fortunate turn of events
You ask me to be Your friend
You ask me to be Your friend

And You, You are my first
You are my last
You are my future and my past

Verse 2
The constellations are swimming inside
The breadth of Your desire
Where could I run, where could I hide
From Your heart’s jealous fire

Pre Chorus
All treasures of wisdom and things to be known
Are hidden inside Your hand
And in this fortunate turn of events
You ask me to be Your friend
You ask me to be Your friend

Bridge
You are the beginning and the end
