Christ, whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the true, the only light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise,
Triumph o’er the shades of night;
Dayspring from on high, be near;
Daystar, in my heart appear.
Dark and cheerless is the morn
Unaccompanied by thee;
Joyless is the day’s return,
Till thy mercy’s beams I see,
Till they inward light impart,
Glad my eyes, and warm my heart.
Visit then this soul of mine,
Pierce the gloom of sin and grief;
Fill me, radiancy divine,
Scatter all my unbelief;
More and more thyself display,
Shining to the perfect day.
This is the day that the Lord has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Let us pray:
The Collect for the Sunday next before Lent
whose Son was revealed in majesty
before he suffered death upon the cross:
give us grace to perceive his glory,
that we may be strengthened to suffer with him
and be changed into his likeness, from glory to glory;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
by Catriona Knight
The Old Testament reading is from Exodus 34: 29 – end
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 from Luke 9: 28-36
This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, O Christ.
by Revd Charles Sargent
Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us:
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.
At the name of Jesus ev’ry knee shall bow,
Ev’ry tongue confess him King of glory now;
‘tis the Father’s pleasure we should call him Lord,
who, from the beginning, was the mighty Word.
At his voice creation sprang at once to sight,
All the angels’ faces, all the hosts of light,
Thrones and dominations, stars upon their way,
All the heav’nly orders in their great array.
Humbled for a season, to receive a name
From the lips of sinners unto whom he came,
Faithfully he bore it, spotless to the last,
Brought it back victorious when from death he passed.
Bore it up triumphant, with its human light,
Through all ranks of creatures to the central height,
To the throne of Godhead, to the Father’s breast,
Filled it with the glory of that perfect rest.
All creation, name him, with love as strong as death;
But with awe and wonder, and with bated breath.
He is God the Saviour, he is Christ the Lord,
Ever to be worshipped, trusted and adored.
In your hearts enthrone him; there let him subdue
All that is not holy, all that is not true;
Crown him as your captain in temptation’s hour;
Let his will enfold you in its light and pow’r.
Truly, this Lord Jesus shall return again,
With his Father’s glory, with his angel train;
For all wreaths of empire meet upon his brow,
And our hearts confess him King of glory now.
