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.

This is the day the Lord has made
We shall rejoice and be glad in it.
Let us pray:
The Collect for the eleventh Sunday after Trinity
O God, you declare your almighty power
most chiefly in showing mercy and pity:
mercifully grant to us such a measure of your grace,
that we, running the way of your commandments,
may receive your gracious promises,
and be made partakers of your heavenly treasure;
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. Amen
by Jose Case Green
The first reading is Proverbs 25: 6-7
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 14: 1, 7-14
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.
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.
