Welcome

Doxology:

                        Now to Him who loved us, gave us

                       Every pledge that love could give,

                  Freely shed His blood to save us,

                       Gave His life that  we might live,

                           Be the Kingdom

                           And dominion,

                       And the glory ever more. Amen.

Call to Worship

 

Hymn: 1              “Jesus, Thou Joy of Loving Hearts”

1

Jesus, Thou Joy of loving hearts,
     Thou Fount of life, Thou Light of men,
From the best bliss that earth imparts,
     We turn unfilled to Thee again.

2

Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood ;
     Thou savest those that on Thee call ;
To them that seek Thee Thou art good,
     To them that find Thee all in all.

3

We taste Thee, O Thou living Bread,
     And long to feast upon Thee still ;
We drink of Thee, the Foun­tainhead,
     And thirst our souls from Thee to fill.

4

O Jesus, ever with us stay ;
     Make all our moments calm and bright ;
Chase the dark night of sin away ;
     Shed over the world Thy holy light. Amen.

Bernard of Clairvaux, 1091 – 1153, tr. Ray Palmer, 1808 – 87

Hymn:  2    “Praise the Lord, ye Heavens Adore Him” (Psalm 148)

 

1

Praise the Lord! ye heav'ns, adore him;
     Praise him angels, in the height; 
Sun and moon, rejoice before him; 
     Praise him, all ye stars of light. 

2
Praise the Lord! for he has spoken; 
     Worlds his mighty voice obeyed; 
Laws which never shall be broken 
     For their guidance he has made. 

3

Praise the Lord! for he is glorious; 
     Never shall his promise fail; 
God has made his saints victorious; 
     Sin and death shall not prevail.

Heav'n, and earth, and all creation,

Bible Reading:              2 Corinthians 13:11-13Matthew 28:16-20

 

Hymn: 3                  “Judge Eternal, Throned in Splendour”

 

Judge eternal, throned in splendour,
     Lord of lords and King of kings,
With Thy living fire of judgement
     Purge this realm of bitter things ;
Solace all its wide dominion
     With the healing of Thy wings.

Still the weary folk are pining
     For the hour that brings release ;
And the city’s crowded clamour
     Cries aloud for sin to cease ;
And the homesteads and woodlands
     Plead in silence for their peace

 

Crown, O God, Thine own endeavour ;
     Cleave our darkness with your sword ;
Feed the faint and hungry heathen
     With the richness of your word ;
Cleanse the body of this nation
     Through the glory of the Lord. Amen.

Henry Scott Holland 1847 – 1918

Prayers of Thanksgiving and Intercession

 

Sermon – “The Fullness of God”

 

Hymn:  4                      “I come with joy, a child of God”

1

I come with joy, a child of God, 

forgiven, loved and free, 

the life of Jesus to recall, 

in love laid down for me, 

in love laid down for me. 

2

I come with Christians far and near 

to find, as all are fed, 

the new community of love 

in Christ's communion bread, 

in Christ's communion bread. 

3

As Christ breaks bread, and bids us share, 

each proud division ends. 

The love that made us, makes us one, 

and strangers now are friends,

and strangers now are friends. 

Brian Wren, b. 1936

Tune : Dove of Peace, Southern Harmony, 1835

 

Communion 

 

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.  I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.  He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.  He descended to the dead.  On the third day He rose again.  He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.  He will come again to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.   Amen.

 

 

 

The Thanksgiving

Minister: The Lord be with you.

Response: And also with you.

Minister: Lift up your hearts.

Response: We lift them to the Lord.

Minister: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

Response: It is right to give him thanks and praise.

Glory be to Thee, O Lord most high,

Hosanna, hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord,

Glory be to Thee, O Lord most high,

Hymn:  5    “The Spirit of the risen Christ” 

1

The Spirit of the risen Christ, 

unseen, but ever near, 

is in such friendship better known, 

alive among us here, 

alive among us here. 

2

Together met, together bound 

by all that God has done,

we'll go with joy, to give the world 

the love that makes us one,

the love that makes us one.
