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
We shall rejoice and be glad in it.
Let us pray:
The Collect for the eighth Sunday after Trinity
Almighty Lord and everlasting God,
we beseech you to direct, sanctify and govern both our hearts and bodies
in the ways of your laws and the works of your commandments;
that through your most mighty protection, both here and ever,
we may be preserved in body and soul;
through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
by David Spruce
The first reading is Genesis 15: 1-6
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 12: 32-40
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.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Hearts to heaven and voices raise;
Sing to God a hymn of gladness, sing to God a hymn of praise;
He who on the cross a victim for the world’s salvation bled,
Jesus Christ, the King of glory, now is risen from the dead.
Christ is risen, Christ the first-fruits of the holy harvest field,
Which with all its full abundance at his second coming yield;
Then the golden ears of harvest will their heads before him wave,
Ripened by his glorious sunshine from the furrows of the grave.
Christ is risen, we are risen; shed upon us heavenly grace,
Rain, and dew, and gleams of glory from the brightness of Thy face;
That we, with our hearts in heaven here on earth may fruitful be,
And by angel-hands be gathered, and be ever, Lord, with Thee.
Alleluia, Alleluia, glory be to God on high;
Alleluia to the Saviour, who has gained the victory;
Alleluia to the Spirit, fount of love and sanctity;
Alleluia, Alleluia, to the Triune Majesty.
