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.

This is the day the Lord has made
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Let us pray:
The Collect for the last Sunday after Trinity
who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning:
help us so to hear them,
to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them
that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word,
we may embrace and for ever hold fast
the hope of everlasting life,
which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
by Kay Hammond
The first reading is Jeremiah 14: 19-22
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 is Luke 18: 9-14
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.
We have a gospel to proclaim,
Good news for all throughout the earth;
The gospel of a Saviour’s name:
We sing his glory, tell his worth.
Tell of his birth at Bethlehem,
Not in a royal house or hall,
But in a stable dark and dim,
The Word made flesh, a light for all.
Tell of his death at Calvary,
Hated by those he came to save;
In lonely suff’ring on the cross:
For all he loved, his life he gave.
Tell of that glorious Easter morn,
Empty the tomb, for he was free;
He broke the pow’r of death and hell
That we might share his victory.
Tell of his reign at God’s right hand,
By all creation glorified.
He sends his Spirit on his Church
To live for him, the Lamb who died.
Now we rejoice to name him King:
Jesus is Lord of all the earth.
This gospel-message we proclaim:
We sing his glory, tell his worth.
