Reading: Isaiah 41:8-13

Isaiah 41:8-13

read by Hilary Hughes

"But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend,
I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, 'You are my servant'; I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
"All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.
Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.
For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

 

 

Hymn: May This Place Be One Of Nurture

May This Place Be One Of Nurture

Words: Ally Barrett
Music: Maurice Bevan (b 1921)

May this place be one of nurture
Where we all may come to know
How your endless love sustains us
As we live and move and grow.
May we work to build your kingdom
Full of truth and light and grace,
Living life in all its fullness
Held in one divine embrace.
For our negligence and failures
You have called us to repent,
Drawing energy for action
From the voices of lament.
As the secret hurts long hidden
May at last be brought to light,
May the truth unlock the freedom
That is every person’s right.
When the smallest child is valued,
And the strong empower the weak,
And each human life is hallowed
And the unheard voices speak:
Then your justice stands like mountains
And your mercy falls like rain,
And you hold the broken hearted
Till they learn to live again.
So, in gratitude we praise you,
And we lift to you in prayer,
All the people you are calling
To this ministry of care.
Give us wisdom, grace and courage,
Holding fast to all that’s good,
Seeing Christ in one another
We will love and serve our Lord.

 

 

Reading: Mark 12:28-31

Mark 12:28-31

read by Steven Cottam

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"
"The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.'
The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."

Be Still For The Presence Of The Lord

Words & Music: David J Evans (b 1957)

Be still for the presence of the Lord,
The Holy One is here
Come bow before Him now,
With reverence and fear
In Him no sin is found
We stand on holy ground
Be still for the presence of the Lord,
The Holy One is here
Be still for the glory of the Lord,
Is shining all around
He burns with holy fire,
With splendor He is crowned
How awesome is the sight
Our radiant King of light
Be still for the glory of the Lord,
Is shining all around
Be still for the power of the Lord,
Is moving in this place
He comes to cleanse and heal,
To minister His grace
No work too hard for Him
In faith receive from Him
Be still for the power of the Lord
Is moving in this place
Be still for the power of the Lord
Is moving in this place

 

 

Hymn: Be Still, My Soul

Be Still, My Soul

Words: Kathrina von Schlegel (1697-1797)
translated by Jane Borthwick (1813-97)
Music: Jean Sibelius (1865-1957)

Be still, my soul: the Lord is on your side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to your God to order and provide;
In ev'ry change he faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: your best, your heav'nly Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
Be still, my soul: your God will undertake
To guide the future as he has the past.
Your hope, your confidence let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while he dwelt below.
Be still, my soul: when dearest friends depart,
And all is darkened in the vale of tears,
Then shall you better know his love, his heart,
Who comes to soothe your sorrow and your fears.
Be still, my soul: your Jesus can repay
From his own fullness all he takes away.
Be still, my soul: the hour is hast'ning on
When we shall be forever with the Lord,
When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past,
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.
