Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart,
Naught be all else to me save that thou art;
Thou my best thought in the day and the night,
Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.
Be thou my wisdom, be thou my true word,
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, and I thy true heir;
Thou in me dwelling, and I in thy care.
Be thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight,
Be thou my armour, and be thou my might,
Thou my soul’s shelter, and thou my high tow’r,
Raise thou me heav’nward, O Pow’r of my pow’r.
Riches I heed not, nor all the world’s praise,
Thou mine inheritance through all of my days;
Thou, and thou only, the first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my treasure thou art!
High King of heaven when battle is done,
Grant heaven’s joy to me, O bright heav’n’s sun;
Christ of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
This is the day the Lord has made
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Let us pray:
The Collect for All Saints
you have knit together your elect
in one communion and fellowship
in the mystical body of your Son Christ our Lord:
grant us grace so to follow your blessed saints
in all virtuous and godly living
that we may come to those inexpressible joys
that you have prepared for those who truly love you;
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.
by Cathy Arnold

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.
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.
