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 splendour 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.

This is the day the Lord has made

We shall rejoice and be glad in it.

Let us pray:

The Collect for the 16th Sunday after Trinity

O Lord, we beseech you
mercifully to hear the prayers of your people who call upon you;
and grant that they may both perceive and know
what things they ought to do,
and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfil them;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

The Prayers

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.


O Jesus, I have promised                                  
To serve thee to the end;                                  
Be thou for ever near me,
My Master and my friend.                                                                                
I shall not fear the battle,
If thou art by my side,                                        
Nor wander from the pathway                      
If thou wilt be my guide.                                   

O let me feel thee near me:                  
The world is ever near;                         
I see the sights that dazzle,                              
The tempting sounds I hear;                           
My foes are ever near me,                                
Around me and within;                         
But, Jesus, draw thou nearer,  
And shield my soul from sin.                           

O let me hear thee speaking                
In accents clear and still
Above the storms of passion,
The murmurs of self-will;
O speak to reassure me
To hasten or control;
O speak and make me listen,
Thou guardian of my soul.

O Jesus, thou hast promised,
To all who follow thee,
That where thou art in glory
There shall thy servant be;
And, Jesus, I have promised
To serve thee to the end:
O give me grace to follow,
My Master and my friend

O let me see thy foot-marks,   
And in them plant mine own.
My hope to follow duly
Is in thy strength alone:
O guide me, call me, draw me,
Uphold me to the end;
And then in heav’n receive me,
My Saviour and my friend.
And then in heav’n receive me,
My Saviour and my friend.
