When Morning Gilds the Skies

When morning gilds the skies,

my heart, awaking, cries,

may Jesus Christ be praised!

When evening shadows fall,

this rings my curfew call,

may Jesus Christ be praised!


When mirth for music longs,

this is my song of songs:

may Jesus Christ be praised!

God’s holy house of prayer

hath none that can compare

with: Jesus Christ be praised!


No lovelier antiphon

in all high heav’n is known

than, Jesus Christ be praised!

There to the eternal Word

the eternal psalm is heard:

may Jesus Christ be praised!


Ye nations of mankind,

in this your concord find:

may Jesus Christ be praised!

Let all the earth around

ring joyous with the sound:

may Jesus Christ be praised!


Sing, suns and stars of space,

sing, ye that see his face,

sing, Jesus Christ be praised!

God’s whole creation o’er,

both now and evermore

shall Jesus Christ be

Lord, Let Your Glory Fall


You are good, You are good, and Your love endures
You are good, You are good, and Your love endures
You are good, You are good, and Your love endures today

Verse 1
Lord let Your glory fall, as on that ancient day
Songs of enduring love, and then Your glory came
And as a sign to You that we would love the same
Our hearts will sing that song, God let Your glory come

Chorus 1
You are good, You are good, and Your love endures
You are good, You are good, and Your love endures
You are good, You are good, and Your love endures today

[2nd, 4th times][repeat]

Verse 2
Voices in unison, giving You thanks and praise
Joined by the instruments, and then Your glory came
Your presence like a cloud, upon that ancient day
The priests were overwhelmed, because Your glory came

Verse 3
A sacrifice was made, and then Your fire came
They knelt upon the ground, and with one voice they praised
A sacrifice was made, and then Your fire came
They knelt upon the ground, and with one voice they praised

Chorus 2
You are good, You are good, and Your love endures
You are good, You are good and Your love endures
You are good, You are good, and Your love endures today

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.


(Seated or kneeling)

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


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.

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

People:  And with your spirit. 




Standing in the Need of Prayer


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:


↓ 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.


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 . . .


(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)


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


(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.


From All the Wind’s Wide Quarters

From all the wind’s wide quarters

     come, see the feast is spread,

of soul-sustaining waters,

     of true and living bread,

of sorrows long-departed,

     and joys beyond compare:

come, poor and humble-hearted,

     the feast of life to share!


With mercy all-prevailing

     God bids the wanderer come;

in grace and peace unfailing

     he calls his children home;

with loving-kindness tender

     he frees us from our sins:

in glory and in splendor

     the feast of life begins!


Come, claim the promise spoken!

     God’s purpose stands secure.

His fruitful word unbroken

     shall evermore endure.

All ancient bondage ended

     to sin’s corrupting powers:

forgivèn, freed, befriended,

     the feast of life is ours!

Be Thou My Vision

Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
all else be nought to me, save that thou art;
thou my best thöught, by day or by night,
waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;
I ever with thee, and thou with me, Lord;
thou my great Father, thine own may I be,
thou in me dwelling, and I one with thee.

Be thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight;
be thou my dignity, thou my delight,
thou my soul’s shëlter, thou my high tow’r:
raise thou me heav’n-ward, O Pow’r of my pow’r.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
thou mine inheritance, now and always;
thou, and thou önly, first in my heart,
High King of Heavèn, my treasure thou art.

High King of Heavèn, when vict’ry is won,
may I reach heavèn’s joys, bright heavèn’s Sun!
Heart of my hëart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

Psalm 139 Refrain

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia,

For the love that saves me


The Solid Rock

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is a sinking sand

When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood
When all around my soul gives way
He then is all, my hope and stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound
Oh may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone
Faultless to stand before the throne


Heavenly Father, we thank you for feeding us with the spiritual food of the most precious Body and Blood of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; and for assuring us in these holy mysteries that we are living members of the body of your Son, and heirs of your eternal Kingdom. And now, Father, send us out to do the work you have given us to do, to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord. To him, to you, and to the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.


Response: Amen.


Response: Thanks be to God.
