Love Divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven, to earth come down,
Fix in us thy humble dwelling,
All thy faithful mercies crown.
Jesus, thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love thou art;
Visit us with thy salvation,
Enter every trembling heart.
Come, almighty to deliver,
Let us all thy grace receive;
Suddenly return, and never,
Never more thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
Serve thee as thy hosts above,
Pray, and praise thee, without ceasing,
Glory in thy perfect love.
Finish then thy new creation
Pure and spotless let us be;
Let us see thy great salvation,
Perfectly restored in thee,
Changed from glory into glory,
Till in heaven we take our place,
Till we cast our crowns before thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise!
This is the day the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Let us pray:
The Collect for the second Sunday after Trinity
Lord, you have taught us
that all our doings without love are nothing worth:
send your Holy Spirit
and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love,
the true bond of peace and of all virtues,
without which whoever lives is counted dead before you.
Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
by Ann Sheppard
The first reading is Exodus 19: 2-8
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew.
Glory to you, O Lord.
The Gospel reading is from Matthew 9: 35 – 10: 8
This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, O Christ.
by Revd Charles Sargent
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.
All my hope on God is founded;
He doth still my trust renew;
Me through change and chance he guideth,
Only good and only true.
God unknown, He alone
calls my heart to be his own.
Human pride and earthly glory,
Sword and crown betray his trust;
What with care and toil he buildeth
Tow’r and temple, fall to dust.
But God’s pow’r, hour by hour,
Is my temple and my tow’r.
God’s great goodness aye endureth,
Deep his wisdom, passing thought;
Splendour, light and life attend him,
Beauty springeth out of naught.
Evermore, from his store
New-born worlds rise and adore.
Still from earth to God eternal
Sacrifice of praise be done,
High above all praises praising
For the gift of Christ his Son.
Christ doth call one and all:
ye who follow shall not fall.
