The Word of God

Psalmody

Psalm 145

Refrain:Great is the Lord and highly to be praised.

1I will exalt you, O God my King, 
and bless your name for ever and ever.

2Every day will I bless you 
and praise your name for ever and ever.

3Great is the Lord and highly to be praised; 
his greatness is beyond all searching out. R

4One generation shall praise your works to another 
and declare your mighty acts.

5They shall speak of the majesty of your glory, 
and I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

6They shall speak of the might of your marvellous acts, 
and I will also tell of your greatness.

7They shall pour forth the story of your abundant kindness 
and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

8The Lord is gracious and merciful, 
long-suffering and of great goodness. R

9The Lord is loving to everyone 
and his mercy is over all his creatures.

10All your works praise you, O Lord, 
and your faithful servants bless you.

11They tell of the glory of your kingdom 
and speak of your mighty power,

12To make known to all peoples your mighty acts 
and the glorious splendour of your kingdom.

13Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom; 
your dominion endures throughout all ages. R

14The Lord is sure in all his words 
and faithful in all his deeds.

15The Lord upholds all those who fall 
and lifts up all those who are bowed down.

16The eyes of all wait upon you, O Lord, 
and you give them their food in due season.

17You open wide your hand 
and fill all things living with plenty. R

18The Lord is righteous in all his ways 
and loving in all his works.

19The Lord is near to those who call upon him, 
to all who call upon him faithfully.

20He fulfils the desire of those who fear him; 
he hears their cry and saves them.

21The Lord watches over those who love him, 
but all the wicked shall he destroy.

22My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, 
and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.

Refrain:Great is the Lord and highly to be praised.

Each psalm or group of psalms may end with

All Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen.

 

Isaiah 55

Ho, everyone who thirsts,
   come to the waters;
and you that have no money,
   come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
   without money and without price.
Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,
   and your labour for that which does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good,
   and delight yourselves in rich food.
Incline your ear, and come to me;
   listen, so that you may live.
I will make with you an everlasting covenant,
   my steadfast, sure love for David.
See, I made him a witness to the peoples,
   a leader and commander for the peoples.
See, you shall call nations that you do not know,
   and nations that do not know you shall run to you,
because of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel,
   for he has glorified you.


Seek the Lord while he may be found,
   call upon him while he is near;
let the wicked forsake their way,
   and the unrighteous their thoughts;
let them return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on them,
   and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
   nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
   so are my ways higher than your ways
   and my thoughts than your thoughts.


For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
   and do not return there until they have watered the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
   giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
   it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
   and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.


For you shall go out in joy,
   and be led back in peace;
the mountains and the hills before you
   shall burst into song,
   and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress;
   instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle;
and it shall be to the Lord for a memorial,
   for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

Canticle

All Splendour and majesty are yours, O God;
you are exalted as head over all.

1Blessed are you, God of Israel, for ever and ever, 
for yours is the greatness, the power,
the glory, the splendour and the majesty.

2Everything in heaven and on earth is yours; 
yours is the kingdom, O Lord,
and you are exalted as head over all.

3Riches and honour come from you 
and you rule over all.

4In your hand are power and might; 
yours it is to give power and strength to all.

5And now we give you thanks, our God, 
and praise your glorious name.

6For all things come from you, 
and of your own have we given you.

1 Chronicles 29.10b-13, 14b

All Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen.

All Splendour and majesty are yours, O God;
you are exalted as head over all.

 

Scripture Reading

Luke

Jesus had just finished speaking when a Pharisee invited him to dine at his house. He went in and sat down at the table. The Pharisee saw this and was surprised that he had not first washed before the meal. But the Lord said to him, ‘Oh, you Pharisees! You clean the outside of cup and plate, while inside yourselves you are filled with extortion and wickedness. Fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside too? Instead, give alms from what you have and then indeed everything will be clean for you.’

 SERMON 

Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead
All And Christ shall give you light.
You have died and your life is hid with Christ in God.
All Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead.
Set your minds on things that are above,
not on things that are on the earth.
All And Christ shall give you light.
When Christ our life appears you will appear with him in glory.
All Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead,
and Christ shall give you light.

from Colossians 3

 

Gospel Canticle

Refrain:

All We bring you the good news that what God promised to the fathers
he has fulfilled to us their children by raising Jesus.

1Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel, 
who has come to his people and set them free.

2He has raised up for us a mighty Saviour, 
born of the house of his servant David.

3Through his holy prophets God promised of old 
to save us from our enemies,
from the hands of all that hate us,

4To show mercy to our ancestors, 
and to remember his holy covenant.

5This was the oath God swore to our father Abraham: 
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

6Free to worship him without fear, 
holy and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.

7And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, 
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

8To give his people knowledge of salvation 
by the forgiveness of all their sins.

9In the tender compassion of our God 
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

10To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, 
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Luke 1.68-79

All Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen.

Refrain:

All We bring you the good news that what God promised to the fathers
he has fulfilled to us their children by raising Jesus.
