Reading: Luke 4:14-21

Luke 4:14-21

read by Keith Selby

Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside.
He was teaching in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.
He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read,
and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."
Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him.
He began by saying to them, "Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing."



Hymn: Christ, Whose Glory Fills The Skies

Christ, Whose Glory Fills The Skies

Words: Charles Wesley (1707-88)
Music: from J G Werner's Choralbuch, Leipzig, 1815

Christ, whose glory fills the skies
Christ, the true, the only Light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise,
Triumph o’er the shades of night;
Dayspring from on high, be near,
Daystar, in my heart appear.
Dark and cheerless is the morn
Unaccompanied by Thee;
Joyless is the day’s return,
Till Thy mercy’s beams I see,
Till Thou inward light impart,
Glad my eyes, and warm my heart.
Visit then this soul of mine,
Pierce the gloom of sin and grief;
Fill me, Radiancy divine,
Scatter all my unbelief;
More and more Thyself display,
Shining to the perfect day.



Hymn: Jesus Christ Is Waiting

Jesus Christ Is Waiting

Words: John L Bell (b 1949)
Graham Maule (b 1958)
Music: an old French melody

Jesus Christ is waiting,
Waiting in the streets;
No one is his neighbour,
All alone he eats.
Listen, Lord Jesus,
I am lonely too.
Make me, friend or stranger,
Fit to wait on you
Jesus Christ is raging,
Raging in the streets,
Where injustice spirals
And real hope retreats.
Listen, Lord Jesus,
I am angry too.
In the Kingdom's causes
Let me rage with you.
Jesus Christ is healing,
Healing in the streets;
Curing those who suffer,
Touching those he greets.
Listen, Lord Jesus,
I have pity too.
Let my care be active,
Healing just like you.
Jesus Christ is dancing,
Dancing in the streets,
Where each sign of hatred
He, with love, defeats.
Listen, Lord Jesus,
I should triumph too.
On suspicion's graveyard
Let me dance with you.
Jesus Christ is calling,
Calling in the streets,
"Who will join my journey?
I will guide their feet."
Listen, Lord Jesus,
Let my fears be few.
Walk one step before me;
I will follow you.



Hymn: Hark, The Glad Sound! The Saviour Comes

Hark, The Glad Sound! The Saviour Comes

Words: Philip Doddridge (1702-51)

Hark, the glad sound! The Savior comes,
The Savior promised long!
Let ev'ry heart prepare a throne,
And ev'ry voice a song.
He comes the pris'ners to release,
In Satan’s bondage held;
The gates of brass before Him burst,
The iron fetters yield.
He comes the broken heart to bind,
The bleeding soul to cure,
And with the treasures of His grace
T'enrich the humbled poor.
Our glad Hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy welcome shall proclaim;
And heav'n’s eternal arches ring
With Thy beloved Name.



Hymn: God Is Our Strength And Refuge

God Is Our Strength And Refuge

Music: E Coates (1886-1958)
