For all your saints still active,
For those whose work is done;
For saints with you in glory
Whose earthly race is run.
You rose as King and Sov’reign,
That they the crown might wear,
Reserved for those who humbly
your earthly pathway share.
We sing with joy of Mary,
whose heart with awe was stirred
When, youthful and unready,
she heard the angel’s word;
Yet she her voice upraises,
God’s glory to proclaim,
As once for our salvation
Your mother she became
Apostles, prophets, martyrs,
Who served you here on earth,
Now reign with you in heaven,
Singing your praise and worth.
With them, and all whose witness
Is known to you alone,
We share our earthly journey
Towards your heavenly throne.
We praise you, God our Father,
We worship Christ, your Son,
We glorify your Spirit,
Forever three, yet one.
On earth we see you dimly,
In heaven face to face;
And then with all who’ve served you,
We’ll praise you, God of grace.
Horatio Bolton Nelson (1823-1913) vv1, 3+4, Stuart Thomas (b. 1954) v2

This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
The Collect for Feast of the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Almighty and everlasting God,
who stooped to raise fallen humanity
through the child-bearing of blessed Mary:
grant that we, who have seen your glory
revealed in our human nature
and your love made perfect in our weakness,
may daily be renewed in your image
and conformed to the pattern of your Son
Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
The first reading, by Barbara Verco, is Acts 1: 12-14
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke.
Glory to you, O Lord.
The Gospel reading, by Sue Wates, is from Luke 1: 39-48
This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, O Christ.
by Revd Nicholas Calver
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come;
thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.
Tell out my soul, the greatness of the Lord
Unnumbered blessings give my spirit voice;
Tender to me the promise of his word;
In God my Saviour shall my heart rejoice.
Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his name:
Make known his might, the deeds his arm has done;
His mercy sure, from age to age the same;
His holy name, the Lord, the mighty one.
Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his might:
Pow’rs and dominions lay their glory by;
Proud hearts and stubborn wills are put to flight,
The hungry fed, the humble lifted high.
Tell out, my soul, the glories of his word:
Firm is his promise and his mercy sure.
Tell out, my soul the greatness of the Lord
To children’s children and for evermore.
