Hymn: How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place

How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place

Words & Music: Johnathon Asprey

How lovely is Thy dwelling-place,
O Lord of hosts, to me;
My soul is longing and fainting
The courts of the Lord to see.
My heart and flesh, they are singing
For joy to the living God;
How lovely is Thy dwelling-place,
O Lord of hosts, to me.
Even the sparrow finds a home
Where he can settle down;
And the swallow, she can build a nest
Where she may lay her young,
Within the courts of the Lord of hosts,
My King, my Lord, and my God;
And happy are those who are dwelling where
The song of praise is sung.
And I'd rather be a door-keeper
And only stay a day,
Than live the life of a sinner
And have to stay away.
For the Lord is shining as the sun,
And the Lord, He's like a shield;
And no good thing does He withhold
From those who walk His way.
How lovely is thy dwelling-place,
O Lord of hosts, to me;
My soul is longing and fainting
The courts of the Lord to see.
My heart and flesh, they are singing
For joy to the living God;
How lovely is thy dwelling-place,
O Lord of hosts, to me.

 

 

Reading: Isaiah 1:1,10-20

Isaiah 1:1,10-20

read by Colin Jones

The vision concerning Judah and Jerusalem that Isaiah son of Amoz saw during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.
Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; listen to the instruction of our God, you people of Gomorrah!
"The multitude of your sacrifices— what are they to me?" says the LORD. "I have more than enough of burnt offerings, of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats.
When you come to appear before me, who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts?
Stop bringing meaningless offerings! Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations— I cannot bear your worthless assemblies.
Your New Moon feasts and your appointed festivals I hate with all my being. They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them.
When you spread out your hands in prayer, I hide my eyes from you; even when you offer many prayers, I am not listening. Your hands are full of blood!
Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong.
Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.
"Come now, let us settle the matter," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land;
but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword." For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.

Seek Ye First

Words & Music: Karen Lafferty (b 1948)

Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And his righteousness;
And all these things shall be added unto you,
Allelu, alleluia!
Alleluia,
Alleluia,
Alleluia,
Allelu, alleluia.
Man shall not live by bread alone,
But by every word
That proceeds from the mouth of the Lord,
Allelu, alleluia!
Alleluia,
Alleluia,
Alleluia,
Allelu, alleluia.
Ask, and it shall be given unto you,
Seek, and ye shall find.
Knock, and the door shall be opened unto you,
Allelu, alleluia!
Alleluia,
Alleluia,
Alleluia,
Allelu, alleluia.

 

 

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

 

 

Reading: Luke 12:32-40

Luke 12:32-40

read by Sheena Shaw

"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.
Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
"Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning,
like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.
It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. Truly I tell you, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.
It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the middle of the night or toward daybreak.
But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.
You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

 

 

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

 

 

Hymn: One More Step Along The World I Go

One More Step Along The World I Go

Words & Music: Sydney Bertram Carter (1915-2004)

One more step along the world I go,
One more step along the world I go,
From the old things to the new,
Keep me traveling along with you:
And it's from the old I travel to the new;
Keep me traveling along with you.
Round the corners of the world I turn,
More and more about the world I learn;
All the new things that I see
You'll be looking at along with me:
And it's from the old I travel to the new;
Keep me traveling along with you.
As I travel through the bad and good,
Keep me traveling the way I should;
Where I see no way to go
You'll be telling me the way, I know:
And it's from the old I travel to the new;
Keep me traveling along with you.
Give me courage when the world is rough,
Keep me loving though the world is tough;
Leap and sing in all I do,
Keep me traveling along with you:
And it's from the old I travel to the new;
Keep me traveling along with you.
You are older than the world can be,
You are younger than the life in me;
Ever old and ever new,
Keep me traveling along with you:
And it's from the old I travel to the new;
Keep me traveling along with you.

 

 

Hymn: At The Name Of Jesus

At The Name Of Jesus

Words: C M Noel (1817-77)
Music: Michael Brierley (b 1932)

At the name of Jesus
Every knee shall bow,
Every tongue confess Him
King of glory now:
'Tis the Father's pleasure
We should call him Lord,
Who from the beginning
Was the mighty Word.
Mighty and mysterious
In the highest height,
God from everlasting,
Very Light of light.
In the Father's bosom,
With the spirit's blest,
Love, in love eternal,
Rest, in perfect rest.
Humbled for a season,
To receive a name.
From the lips of sinners
Unto whom he came,
Faithfully he bore it
Spotless to the last,
Brought it back victorious,
When from death he passed:
Bore it up triumphant
With its human light,
Through all ranks of creatures, To the central height,
To the throne of Godhead,
To the Father's breast;
Filled it with the glory
Of that perfect rest.
Name him, brothers, name him,
With love as strong as death,
But with awe and wonder
And with bated breath:
He is God the Saviour,
He is Christ the Lord,
Ever to be worshipped,
Trusted, and adored.
In your hearts enthrone him;
There let him subdue
All that is not holy,
All that is not true:
Crown him as your captain
In temptation's hour;
Let his will enfold you
In it's light and power.
Brothers, this Lord Jesus
Shall return again,
With his Father's glory,
With his angel train;
For all wreaths of empire
Meet upon his brow,
And our hearts confess him
King of glory now.
