Introit hymn

1    Let all the world in every corner sing:
   My God and King!
   The heavens are not too high,
   His praise may thither fly;
   The earth is not too low,
   His praises there may grow.
   Let all the world in every corner sing:
   My God and King!

2    Let all the world in every corner sing:
   My God and King!
   The church with psalms must shout,
   No door can keep them out;
   But above all, the heart
   Must bear the longest part.
   Let all the world in every corner sing:
   My God and King!

Opening prayer

 

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.

Amen.

 

 I will go unto the altar of God.

 Even unto the God of my joy and gladness.

 

 Our help is in the name of the Lord

 Who hath made heaven and earth.

 

Pause for reflection

 

 We confess to God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost,
that we have sinned in thought, word, and deed, 
through our own grievous fault.
Wherefore we pray God to have mercy upon us.

Almighty God have mercy upon us,
forgive us all our sins and deliver us from evil,
confirm and strengthen us in all goodness,
and bring us to life everlasting.    Amen.

unto whom all hearts be open,
all desires known,
and from whom no secrets are hid: 
cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of thy Holy Spirit,
that we may perfectly love thee,
and worthily magnify thy holy name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

First Reading
 

A reading from the book of the prophet Ezekiel

He said to me: O mortal, stand up on your feet, and I will speak with you. And when he spoke to me, a spirit entered into me and set me on my feet; and I heard him speaking to me. He said to me, Mortal, I am sending you to the people of Israel, to a nation of rebels who have rebelled against me; they and their ancestors have transgressed against me to this very day. The descendants are impudent and stubborn. I am sending you to them, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God.’ Whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house), they shall know that there has been a prophet among them.     Ezekiel 2:1-5       

 

Second Reading
 

A reading from the second letter of Paul to the Corinthians

Now as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in utmost eagerness, and in our love for you—so we want you to excel also in this generous undertaking.

I do not say this as a command, but I am testing the genuineness of your love against the earnestness of others. For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich. And in this matter I am giving my advice: it is appropriate for you who began last year not only to do something but even to desire to do something— now finish doing it, so that your eagerness may be matched by completing it according to your means. For if the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has—not according to what one does not have. I do not mean that there should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of a fair balance between your present abundance and their need, so that their abundance may be for your need, in order that there may be a fair balance. As it is written,
‘The one who had much did not have too much,
  and the one who had little did not have too little.’

2 Corinthians 8:7-15

GRADUAL HYMN

O God beyond all praising,
we worship you today
and sing the love amazing
that songs cannot repay;
for we can only wonder
at every gift you send,
at blessings without number
and mercies without end:
we lift our hearts before you
and wait upon your word,
we honor and adore you,
our great and mighty Lord.

Then hear, O gracious Savior,
accept the love we bring,
that we who know your favor
may serve you as our king;
and whether our tomorrows
be filled with good or ill,
we'II triumph through our sorrows
and rise to bless you still:
to marvel at your beauty
and glory in your ways,
and make a joyful duty
our sacrifice of praise.

ALLELUIA

 

 GOSPEL    

When it is announced:

Glory to Christ our Saviour.

Hear the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark.

Jesus came to his home town, and his disciples followed him. On the sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astounded. They said, ‘Where did this man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been given to him? What deeds of power are being done by his hands! Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are not his sisters here with us?’ And they took offence at him. Then Jesus said to them, ‘Prophets are not without honour, except in their home town, and among their own kin, and in their own house.’ And he could do no deed of power there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and cured them. And he was amazed at their unbelief.

Then he went about among the villages teaching. He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics. He said to them, ‘Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them.’ So they went out and proclaimed that all should repent. They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.   Mark 6: 1-13

At end:

Give thanks to the Lord for his glorious Gospel.

Praise to Christ our Lord.

OFFERTORY PROPER     

 

OFFERTORY HYMN

1    O Jesus, I have promised
   to serve thee to the end;
   be thou for ever near me,
   my Master and my Friend:
   I shall not fear the battle
   if thou art by my side,
   nor wander from the pathway
   if thou wilt be my guide.

2    O let me feel thee near me:
   the world is ever near;
   I see the sights that dazzle, 
   the tempting sounds I hear;
   my foes are ever near me,
   around me, and within;
   but, Jesus, draw thou nearer,
   and shield my soul from sin.

4    O Jesus, thou hast promised
   to all who follow thee,
   that where thou art in glory
   there shall thy servant be;
   and, Jesus, I have promised
   to serve thee to the end:
   O give me grace to follow,
   my Master and my Friend.

5    O let me see thy foot-marks,
   and in them plant mine own;
   my hope to follow duly
   is in thy strength alone:
   O guide me, call me, draw me,
   uphold me to the end;
   and then in heaven receive me,
   my Saviour and my Friend.

THE OFFERTORY

 

 

Blessed be thou, O Lord God, for ever and ever.

Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:
for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine:
thine is the Kingdom, O Lord,
and thou art exalted as head above all:
all things come of thee,
and of thine own do we give unto thee.   Am
en.

 

THE CONSECRATION

The Lord be with you.

And with thy spirit.

 

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them up unto the Lord.

 

Let us give thanks unto our Lord God.

It is meet and right so to do.

 

It is very meet, right, and our bounden duty,

that we should at all times, and in all places,

give thanks unto thee, O Lord, Holy Father, Almighty, Everlasting God.

Therefore with Angels and Archangels,

and with all the company of heaven,

we laud and magnify thy glorious Name;

evermore praising thee and saying:

 

SANCTUS

All glory and thanksgiving be to thee,

Almighty God, our heavenly Father,

for that thou of thy tender mercy

didst give thine only Son Jesus Christ

to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption;

and did institute, and in his holy Gospel

command us to continue,

a perpetual memorial of that his precious death and sacrifice until his coming again.

 

For, in the night that he was betrayed,

he took bread;

and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and gave it to his disciples, saying,

Take, eat, this is my Body, which is given for you: Do this in remembrance of me.

 

 Likewise after supper he took the cup;

and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying,

Drink ye all of this, for this is my Blood of the new testament,

which is shed for you and for many

for the remission of sins:

Do this as oft as ye shall drink it in remembrance of me.

  

Wherefore, O Lord, and heavenly Father,

according to the institution of thy dearly beloved Son

our Saviour Jesus Christ,

we thy humble servants

do celebrate and make here before thy Divine Majesty,

with these thy holy gifts, which we now offer unto thee,

the memorial thy Son hath commanded us to make:

 

And we thine unworthy servants

beseech thee, most merciful Father,

to hear us, and to send thy Holy Spirit upon us

and upon these thy gifts and creatures of bread and wine,

that, being blessed and hallowed by his life-giving power,

they may become the Body and Blood of thy most dearly beloved Son,

to the end that all who shall receive the same

may be sanctified both in body and soul,

and preserved unto everlasting life.

 

And we earnestly desire thy fatherly goodness,

mercifully to accept this our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving,

 

 And here we humbly offer and present unto thee, O Lord,
ourselves, our souls and bodies,
to be a reasonable, holy, and living sacrifice unto thee,
beseeching thee to accept this our bounden duty and service,
not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offences,

 

Through Jesus Christ our Lord:

by whom, and with whom,

in the unity of the Holy Ghost,

all honour and glory be unto thee,

O Father Almighty, world without end.

Amen.

 

LORD’S PRAYER

 

As our Saviour Christ has commanded and taught us,

we are bold to say:

 

Our Father, which 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 them that 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.

  

THE FRACTION

 

We break this bread,

to share in the body of Christ.

Though we are many, we are one body,
for we all share in one bread.

 

PRAYER OF HUMBLE ACCESS

 

We do not presume to come to this thy Holy Table, O merciful Lord, trusting in our own righteousness, but in thy manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the  crumbs under thy Table: but thou art the same Lord, whose property is always to have mercy. Grant us therefore, gracious Lord, so to eat the Flesh of thy dear Son Jesus Christ, and to drink his Blood, that our sinful bodies may be made clean by his most sacred Body, and our souls washed through his most precious Blood, and that we may evermore dwell in him, and he in us.   Amen.

 

 COMMUNION HYMN

​​

1    Be still, my soul: the Lord is at your side;
   bear patiently the cross of grief and pain;
   leave to your God to order and provide;
   in ev'ry change he faithful will remain.
   Be still, my soul: your best, your heav'nly friend,
   through thorny ways, leads to a joyful end.
   
2    Be still, my soul: your God will undertake
   to guide the future as he has the past.
   Your hope, your confidence let nothing shake,
   all now mysterious shall be clear at last.
   Be still, my soul: the tempests still obey
   his voice, who ruled them once on Galilee.
   
3    Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening on
   when we shall be for ever with the Lord,
   when disappointment, grief and fear are gone,
   sorrow forgotten, love's pure joy restored.
   Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past,
   All safe and blessèd we shall meet at last.

THANKSGIVING

 

O  Give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious.

And his mercy endureth for ever,

Let us pray

 

O Lord our God, thou Saviour of the world, through whom we have celebrated these Holy Mysteries: receive our humble thanksgiving, and of thy great mercy vouchsafe to sanctify us evermore in body and soul; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

 

FINAL HYMN   

   

1 Go forth and tell! O church of God, awake!
God's saving news to all the nations take;
proclaim Christ Jesus, saviour, Lord, and king,
that all the world his worthy praise may sing.

2 Go forth and tell! God's love embraces all;
he will in grace respond to all who call:
how shall they call if they have never heard
the gracious invitation of his word?

3 Go forth and tell where still the darkness lies;
in wealth or want, the sinner surely dies;
give us, O Lord, concern of heart and mind,
a love like yours which cares for all mankind.

4 Go forth and tell! The doors are open wide:
share God's good gifts - let no one be denied;
live out your life as Christ your Lord shall choose,
your ransomed powers for his sole glory use.

5 Go forth and tell! O church of God, arise!
go in the strength which Christ your Lord supplies;
go till all nations his great name adore
and serve him, Lord and king, for evermore.

THE BLESSING       

 

The peace of God which passes all understanding,

keep your hearts and minds

in the knowledge and love of God

and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord:

And the blessing of God almighty, the Father,

the Son and the Holy Spirit,

be amongst you and remain with you always. Amen.

 

Now let us go forth in peace.

Thanks be to God.
