Reading: John 2:1-11

John 2:1-11

read by Steven Cottam

On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there,
and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."
"Woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied. "My hour has not yet come."
His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet." They did so,
and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside
and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."
What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

Jesus Is Lord

Words & Music: David J Mansell (b 1936)

Jesus is Lord!
Creation's voice proclaims it
For by His power each tree and flower
Was planned and made
Jesus is Lord!
The universe declares it
Sun, moon and stars in heaven
Cry, 'Jesus is Lord!'
Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
Praise Him with hallelujahs
For Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
Yet from His throne eternal
In flesh He came to die in pain
On Calvary's tree
Jesus is Lord!
From Him all life proceeding
Yet gave His life a ransom
Thus setting us free
Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
Praise Him with hallelujahs
For Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
O'er sin the mighty conqueror
From death He rose, and all His foes
Shall own His name
Jesus is Lord!
God sent His Holy Spirit
To show by works of power
That Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
Praise Him with hallelujahs
For Jesus is Lord!



Hymn: At Cana's Wedding, Long Ago

At Cana's Wedding, Long Ago

Words: Timothy Dudley-Smith (b 1926)
Music: adapted by Henri Frederick Hemy (1818-88)

At Cana's wedding, long ago,
They knew his presence by this sign,
A virtue none but Christ could show,
To turn their water into wine:
And still on us his blessing be
As in the days of Galilee.
What if the way be far to go
And life at times a weary load?
Yet may our hearts within us glow
As theirs on that Emmaus road:
The risen Christ become our guest,
With him to walk, in him to rest.
O Lord of all our life below,
O risen Lord of realms above,
Eternal joy be theirs to know,
United in the bond of love:
One in the faith, with one accord,
One with each other and the Lord.



Hymn: The Church's One Foundation

The Church's One Foundation

Words: Samuel John Stone (1839-1900)
Music: Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-76)

The church's one foundation
Is Jesus Christ, her Lord;
She is his new creation
By water and the Word:
From heav'n he came and sought her
To be his holy bride;
With his own blood he bought her,
And for her life he died.
Elect from ev'ry nation,
Yet one o'er all the earth,
Her charter of salvation
One Lord, one faith, one birth;
One holy name she blesses,
Partakes one holy food,
And to one hope she presses,
With ev'ry grace endued.
Though with a scornful wonder
Men see her sore oppressed,
By schisms rent asunder,
By heresies distressed,
Yet saints their watch are keeping,
Their cry goes up, "How long?"
And soon the night of weeping
Shall be the morn of song.
The church shall never perish!
Her dear Lord to defend,
To guide, sustain, and cherish,
Is with her to the end;
Though there be those that hate her,
And false sons in her pale,
Against both foe and traitor
She ever shall prevail.
'Mid toil and tribulation,
And tumult of her war,
She waits the consummation
Of peace forevermore;
Till with the vision glorious
Her longing eyes are blest,
And the great church victorious
Shall be the church at rest.
Yet she on earth hath union
With the God the Three in One,
And mystic sweet communion
With those whose rest is won:
O happy ones and holy!
Lord, give us grace that we,
Like them, the meek and lowly,
On high may dwell with thee.



Hymn: Let All The World

Let All The World

Words: George Herbert (1593-1633)
Music: Basil Harwood (1859-1949)

Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"
The heav'ns are not too high,
God's praise may thither fly;
The earth is not too low,
God's praises there may grow.
Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"
Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"
The church with psalms must shout:
No door can keep them out.
But, more than all, the heart
Must bear the longest part.
Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
"My God and King!"
