Hymn: All My Hope On God Is Founded

All My Hope On God Is Founded

Words: after J Neander (1650-80)
Robert Bridges (1844-1930)
Music: Herbert Howells (1892-1983)

All my hope on God is founded;
he doth still my trust renew.
Me through change and chance he guideth,
only good and only true.
God unknown,
he alone
calls my heart to be his own.
Human pride and earthly glory,
sword and crown betray his trust;
what with care and toil he buildeth,
tower and temple, fall to dust.
But God's power,
hour by hour,
is my temple and my tower.
God's great goodness aye endureth,
deep his wisdom, passing thought:
splendour, light, and life attend him,
beauty springeth out of naught.
Evermore
from his store
new-born worlds rise and adore.
Daily doth th' Almighty giver
bounteous gifts on us bestow;
his desire our soul delighteth,
pleasure leads us where we go.
Love doth stand
at his hand;
joy doth wait on his command.
Still from earth to God eternal
sacrifice of praise be done,
high above all praises praising
for the gift of Christ his Son.
Christ doth call
one and all:
ye who follow shall not fall.

Liturgy: Gloria in Excelsis
Glory to God in the highest,

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.

Reading: Hebrews 2:14-18

Hebrews 2:14-18

read by David Worgan

Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—
and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.
For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants.
For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.
Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

 

 

Liturgy: Readings
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Christ Triumphant

Words: Michael Saward
Music: John Barnard

Christ triumphant, ever reigning
Saviour, Master, King
Lord of heaven, our lives sustaining
Hear us as we sing
Yours the glory and the crown,
The high renown, the eternal name
Word incarnate, truth revealing
Son of Man on earth!
Power and majesty concealing
By your humble birth
Yours the glory and the crown,
The high renown, the eternal name
Suffering Servant, scorned, ill-treated
Victim crucified!
Death is through the cross defeated
Sinners justified
Yours the glory and the crown,
The high renown, the eternal name
Priestly King, enthroned forever
High in heaven above!
Sin and death and hell shall never
Stifle hymns of love
Yours the glory and the crown,
The high renown, the eternal name
So, our hearts and voices raising
Through the ages long
Ceaselessly upon You gazing
This shall be our song
Yours the glory and the crown,
The high renown, the eternal name

 

 

Liturgy: Gospel Reading (part 1)
Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to N.
Glory to you, O Lord.

 

 

Reading: Luke 2:22-40

Luke 2:22-40

read by Sue Worgan

When the time came for the purification rites required by the Law of Moses, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord
(as it is written in the Law of the Lord, "Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord"),
and to offer a sacrifice in keeping with what is said in the Law of the Lord: "a pair of doves or two young pigeons."
Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him.
It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord's Messiah.
Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required,
Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:
"Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace.
For my eyes have seen your salvation,
which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel."
The child's father and mother marveled at what was said about him.
Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: "This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against,
so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too."
There was also a prophet, Anna, the daughter of Penuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage,
and then was a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying.
Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.
When Joseph and Mary had done everything required by the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth.
And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him.

 

 

Liturgy: Gospel Reading (part 2)
This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, O Christ.

 

 

Hymn: Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)

Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)

Words: John Newton (stanzas)
Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio (refrain)
Music: Traditional American melody
refrain by Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now I'm found,
was blind but now I see.
Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed.
My chains are gone, I've been set free.
My God, my saviour has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love Amazing grace
The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine.
But God who called me here below
Will be forever mine
My chains are gone, I've been set free.
My God, my saviour has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love Amazing grace
My chains are gone, I've been set free.
My God, my saviour has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love Amazing grace
Unending love Amazing grace

 

 

Hymn: The Spirit Lives To Se Us Free

The Spirit Lives To Se Us Free

Words & Music: Damien Lundy

The Spirit lives to set us free,
Walk, walk in the light;
He binds us all in unity,
Walk, walk in the light.
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light of the Lord.
Jesus promised life to all,
Walk, walk in the light;
The dead were wakened by his call,
Walk, walk in the light.
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light of the Lord.
He died in pain on Calvary,
Walk, walk in the light;
To save the lost like you and me,
Walk, walk in the light.
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light of the Lord.
We know his death was not the end,
Walk, walk in the light;
He gave his Spirit to be our friend,
Walk, walk in the light.
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light of the Lord.
The Spirit lives in you and me,
Walk, walk in the light;
His light will shine for all to see,
Walk, walk in the light.
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light of the Lord.

 

 

Liturgy: Prayer 1
Yours, Lord, is the greatness, the power,
the glory, the splendour, and the majesty;
for everything in heaven and on earth is yours.
All things come from you,
and of your own do we give you.

 

 

Hymn: Angels From The Realms Of Glory

Angels From The Realms Of Glory

Words: James Montgomery (1771-1854)
Music: French traditional carol
harmonised by Martin Shaw (1875-1958)

Angels from the realms of glory,
wing your flight o'er all the earth;
ye who sang creation's story
now proclaim Messiah's birth:
Come and worship
Christ, the newborn king
Come and worship
worship Christ, the newborn king.
Shepherds, in the field abiding,
watching o'er your flocks by night,
God with us is now residing;
yonder shines the infant light:
Come and worship
Christ, the newborn king
Come and worship
worship Christ, the newborn king.
Sages, leave your contemplations,
brighter visions beam afar;
seek the great Desire of nations;
ye have seen his natal star:
Come and worship
Christ, the newborn king
Come and worship
worship Christ, the newborn king.
