Christ, whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the true and only Light,
Sun of Righteousness, arise,
triumph o’er the shade of night;
Day-spring from on high, be near;
Day-star, 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.

Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
Tune: Ratisbon, from Johann Werner’s Choralbuch (1815)

This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.


The Collect prayer for the Second Sunday after Trinity

Lord, you have taught us that all our doings
without love are nothing worth:
send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts
that most excellent gift of love,
the true bond of peace and of all virtues,
without which whoever lives is counted dead before you.
Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen

The Lord’s Prayer
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.


Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.
In the name of Christ. Amen.

All hail the power of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord of all.

Crown him, ye martyrs of your God,
who from his altar call.
Praise him, whose way of pain ye trod,
and crown him Lord of all.

Ye prophets who our freedom won,
ye searchers, great and small
by whom the work of truth was done,
now crown him Lord of all.

Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race,
ye ransomed of the fall,
hail him who saves you by his grace,
and crown him Lord of all.

Let ev’ry tribe and ev’ry tongue
to him their hearts enthrall,
lift high the universal song,
and crown him Lord of all.

Edward Perronet (1726-1792)
