Hymn: Crown Him With Many Crowns

Crown Him With Many Crowns

Words: Matthew Bridges (1800-94)
Music: Godfrey Thring (1823-1903)

Crown Him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon His throne;
Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns
All music but its own:
Awake, my soul and sing
Of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy chosen King
Through all eternity.
Crown Him the Son of God
Before the worlds began;
And ye who trod where He hath trod,
Crown Him the Son of Man,
Who every grief hath known
That wrings the human breast,
And takes and bears them for His own,
That all in Him may rest.
Crown Him the Lord of life,
Who triumphed o’er the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife,
For those He came to save.
His glories now we sing,
Who died and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring,
And lives that death may die.
Crown Him the Lord of heaven,
Enthroned in worlds above;
Crown Him the King to whom is given
The wondrous name of love:
All hail, Redeemer, hail!
For Thou hast died for me;
Thy praise shall never, never fail
Throughout eternity.

 

 

Liturgy: Prayers of Penitence
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.

Almighty God,
who forgives all who truly repent,
have mercy upon you,
pardon and deliver you from all your sins,
confirm and strengthen you in all goodness,
and keep you in life eternal;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Heavenly Father,
at the Jordan you revealed Jesus as your Son:

Reading: Isaiah 42:1-9

Isaiah 42:1-9

read by Sarah Maxwell

"Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations.
He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets.
A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;
he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his teaching the islands will put their hope."
This is what God the LORD says— the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out, who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:
"I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles,
to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
"I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols.
See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you."

 

 

Liturgy: Readings
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

 

 

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

 

 

Reading: Matthew 3:13-17

Matthew 3:13-17

read by Ann Barlow

Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.
But John tried to deter him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?"
Jesus replied, "Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness." Then John consented.
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.
And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased."

 

 

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

 

 

SlideSet: Images:Still slide

 

 

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.

 

 

Hymn: Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence

Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence

Words: translated by J M Neale (1818-66)
translated by Gerard Moultrie (1829-85)
translated by Richard Frederick Littledale (1833-90)
Music: 17th century French carol

Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
And with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly-minded,
For with blessing in his hand,
Christ our God to earth descendeth,
Our full homage to demand.
King of kings, yet born of Mary,
As of old on earth he stood,
Lord of lords, in human vesture,
In the body and the blood,
He will give to all the faithful
His own self for heav'nly food.
Rank on rank the host of heaven
Spreads its vanguard on the way,
As the Light of light descendeth
From the realms of endless day,
That the pow'rs of hell may vanish
As the darkness clears away.
At his feet the six-winged seraph,
Cherubim, with sleepless eye,
Veil their faces to the presence,
As with ceaseless voice they cry,
"Alleluia, alleluia,
Alleluia, Lord Most High!"

 

 

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.

 

 

SlideSet: Liturgy: Epiphany: Holy Communion Preface
The Lord is here.
His Spirit is with us.

 Lift up your hearts.
We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give thanks and praise.
Blessed are you, God of all glory,
through your son Jesus Christ.
We worship and adore you.
 He is the Heavenly King, born of Mary.
We worship and adore you

He is the Word of the Father, crying as a baby.
We worship and adore you.

He is robed in glory, wrapped in infant clothes.
We worship and adore you.
Lord of heaven and earth, laid in a manger.
We worship and adore you.
Strong in weakness, glorious in humility,
To him be all praise and glory.
And so we join in with all the company of heaven, worshipping you and saying/singing

 

 

SlideSet: Liturgy: 2 verse santus and benedictus using hymn Holy, holy, holy, holy is the Lord
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord,
Holy is the Lord God Almighty
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord,
Holy is the Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come 
Holy. Holy. Holy is the Lord 
Blessed, blessed, blest is he who comes,
blest is he who comes in the Lord’s name
Blessed, blessed, blest is he who comes,
blest is he who comes in the Lord’s name 
Hosanna in the highest heaven,
Blessed blessed blessed is the Lord.

 

 

Liturgy: Eucharistic Prayer E
We praise and bless you, loving Father,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord;
and as we obey his command,
send your Holy Spirit,
that broken bread and wine outpoured
may be for us the body and blood of your dear Son.
On the night before he died he had supper with his friends
and, taking bread, he praised you.
He broke the bread, gave it to them and said:
Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you;
do this in remembrance of me.
When supper was ended he took the cup of wine.
Again he praised you, gave it to them and said:
Drink this, all of you;
this is my blood of the new covenant,
which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.
So, Father, we remember all that Jesus did,
in him we plead with confidence his sacrifice
made once for all upon the cross.
Bringing before you the bread of life and cup of salvation,
we proclaim his death and resurrection
until he comes in glory.
Great is the mystery of faith:
Christ has died:
Christ is risen:
Christ will come again.
Lord of all life,
help us to work together for that day
when your kingdom comes
and justice and mercy will be seen in all the earth.
Look with favour on your people,
gather us in your loving arms
and bring us with [N and] all the saints
to feast at your table in heaven.
Through Christ, and with Christ, and in Christ,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
all honour and glory are yours, O loving Father,
for ever and ever.
Amen.

 

 

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.

 

 

Liturgy: Breaking of the Bread
We break this bread to share in the body of Christ.
Though we are many, we are one body, because we all share in one bread.

 

 

SlideSet: Liturgy: Epiphany: Prayer After Communion
Lord, by your mercy 
we have feasted upon the bread of life,
and have shared the cup of salvation.
Help us so to live out our days
that our lives may proclaim your wonders;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I, The Lord Of Sea And Sky

Words & Music: Daniel L Schutte (b 1947)

I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard My people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin,
My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear My light to them?
Whom shall I send?
Here I am Lord, Is it I, Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.
I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have borne my people's pain.
I have wept for love of them,
They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak My word to them
Whom shall I send?
Here I am Lord, Is it I, Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.
I, the Lord of wind and flame
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them,
My hand will save
Finest bread I will provide,
Till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give My life to them,
Whom shall I send?
Here I am Lord, Is it I, Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.

 

 

SlideSet: Liturgy: Epiphany: Dismissal
Let us go in peace
We go into the world to walk in God's light, 
to rejoice in God's love and to reflect God's glory.
Amen.
