Hymn: Hail To The Lords Anointed

Hail To The Lords Anointed

Words: James Montgomery (1771-1854)
Music: Johann Crüger (1598-1662)
adapted by William Henry Monk (1823-89)

Hail to the Lord's Anointed,
Great David's greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
To set the captive free;
To take away transgression,
And rule in equity.
He comes with succour speedy
To those who suffer wrong;
To help the poor and needy,
And bid the weak be strong;
To give them songs for sighing,
Their darkness turn to light,
Whose souls, condemned and dying,
Are precious in his sight.
He shall come down like showers
Upon the fruitful earth;
Love, joy, and hope, like flowers,
Spring in his path to birth.
Before him on the mountains,
Shall peace, the herald, go,
And righteousness, in fountains,
From hill to valley flow.
To him shall prayer unceasing
And daily vows ascend;
His kingdom still increasing,
A kingdom without end.
The tide of time shall never
His covenant remove;
His name shall stand forever;
That name to us is love.

 

 

SlideSet: Liturgy: Epiphany: Responses choice B
God in Christ has revealed His glory
Come let us worship

From the rising of the sun to its setting
The Lord's name is greatly to be praised

Give Him praise, you servants of the Lord.
O Praise the name of the Lord.
The kings, Lord,
brought myrrh, frankincense and gold.

Lord, we have nothing of our own to bring;
we bring you what you have given:
our lives for your life. Amen

 

 

SlideSet: Liturgy: Epiphany: Confession


Hear the words of comfort our Saviour Christ says to all who truly turn to him:

 Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11.28
God so loved the world that he gave his only 
Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
John 3.16

Christ the Light of the world has come to dispel the darkness of our hearts. 
So let us turn to the light and confess our sins.

You, Lord, were born for our salvation.
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

  


You came as Saviour to bring wholeness and peace.

Christ, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.

 
You came to bring light into the darkness of our lives.

Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

 

 

 

Liturgy: Gloria in Excelsis
Glory to God in the highest,
and peace to his people on earth.
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.

 

 

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

 

 

Reading: Luke 3:15-17,21,22

Luke 3:15-17,21,22

read by Sally Giles

The people were waiting expectantly and were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Messiah.
John answered them all, "I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
His winnowing fork is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."
When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened
and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."

 

 

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

 

 

Hymn: On Jordan's Bank The Baptist's Cry

On Jordan's Bank The Baptist's Cry

Words: Charles Coffin (1676-1749)
translated by John Chandler (1808-76)
Music: adapted from a chorale in
Musicalisches Hand-Buch, Hamberg 1690

On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry
Announces that the Lord is nigh.
Awake and harken, for he brings
Glad tidings of the King of kings!
Then cleansed be every life from sin:
Make straight the way for God within,
And let us all our hearts prepare
For Christ to come and enter there.
We hail you as our Savior, Lord,
Our refuge and our great reward.
Without your grace we waste away
Like flowers that wither and decay.
Stretch forth your hand, our health restore,
And make us rise to fall no more.
O let your face upon us shine
And fill the world with love divine.
All praise to you, eternal Son,
Whose advent has our freedom won,
Whom with the Father we adore,
And Holy Spirit, evermore.

 

 

Liturgy: Authorised Affirmation of Faith (E9)
Let us affirm our faith in Jesus Christ the Son of God.
Though he was divine,
he did not cling to equality with God,
but made himself nothing.
Taking the form of a slave,
he was born in human likeness.
He humbled himself
and was obedient to death,
even the death of the cross.
Therefore God has raised him on high,
and given him the name above every name:
that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
and every voice proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Amen.

 

 

Liturgy: Prayers of Intercession
Lord, in your mercy
hear our prayer.
Merciful Father,
accept these prayers
for the sake of your Son,
our Saviour Jesus Christ.
Amen.

 

 

Liturgy: The Peace
The peace of the Lord be always with you
and also with you.
Let us offer one another a sign of peace.

My Jesus, My Saviour

Words & Music: Darlene Zschech (b 1965)

My Jesus, my Saviour
Lord there is none like you
All of my days, I want to praise
The wonders of your mighty love
My comfort, my Shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship you
Shout to the Lord, all the earth let us sing.
Power and majesty, praise to the king.
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of your name
I sing for joy at the work of your hands
Forever I'll love you, forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have in you
My Jesus, my Saviour
Lord there is none like you
All of my days, I want to praise
The wonders of your mighty love
My comfort, my Shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship you
Shout to the Lord, all the earth let us sing.
Power and majesty, praise to the king.
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of your name
I sing for joy at the work of your hands
Forever I'll love you, forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have in you


 

 

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.

 

 

Collect: Collect for The Baptism of Christ

Collect for:

The Baptism of Christ

Eternal Father,
who at the baptism of Jesus
revealed him to be your Son,
anointing him with the Holy Spirit:
grant to us, who are born again by water and the Spirit,
that we may be faithful to our calling as your adopted children;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

 

 

Liturgy: The Lord's Prayer
As our Saviour taught us, so we pray
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Amen.
