A hymn is sung
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.
This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
The Collect prayer for the second Sunday of Lent
you show to those who are in error the light of your truth,
that they may return to the way of righteousness:
grant to all those who are admitted
into the fellowship of Christ’s religion,
that they may reject those things
that are contrary to their profession,
and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same;
through our Lord Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
by Lynda and Paul Pitts

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.
A hymn is sung
Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?
Will you go where you don’t know, and never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown, will you let my name be known,
Will you let my life be grown in you and you in me?
Will you leave yourself behind if I but call your name?
Will you care for cruel and kind, and never be the same?
Will you risk the hostile stare should your life attract or scare,
Will you let me answer prayer in you, and you in me?
Will you let the blinded see if I but call your name?
Will you set the pris’ners free, and never be the same?
Will you kiss the leper clean and do such as this unseen,
And admit to what I mean in you, and you in me?
Will you love the ‘you’ you hide if I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside, and never be the same?
Will you use the faith you’ve found to reshape the world around
Through my sight and touch and sound in you, and you in me?
Lord, your summons echoes true when you but call my name.
Let me turn and follow you, and never be the same.
In your company I’ll go where your love and footsteps show.
Thus I’ll move and live and grow in you, and you in me.
