Opening Hymn: Hymn #619 “Fairest Lord Jesus” Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature,
O thou the Godhead’s human son:
Thee will I cherish, thee will I honour, thou my soul’s glory, joy, and crown. Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands,
robed in the blooming garb of spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer, who makes the troubled heart to sing. Fair is the sunshine, fairer still the moonlight,
And fair the twinkling, starry host;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer than all the angels heaven can boast. All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly,
Wondrously, Jesus, is found in thee;
None can be nearer, fairer, or dearer than thou, my Saviour, art to me. The Penitential Rite
The sacrifice of God is a broken spirit: a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. Psalm 51:18
Seek the Lord while he wills to be found, call upon him when he draws near; let the wicked forsake their ways, and the evil ones their thoughts; and let them return to the Lord, and he will have compassion, and to our God, for he will richly pardon.
If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:8- 9
The officiant says to the people,
Dear friends in Christ, as we prepare to worship almighty God, let us with penitent and obedient hearts confess our sins, that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.
All kneel and silence is kept. The officiant and people say together,
Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbours as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us, that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your name. Amen.
The priest says, (while standing)
Almighty God have mercy upon you, pardon and deliver you from all your sins, confirm and strengthen you in all goodness, and keep you in eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Lord is our refuge and strength: O, come, let us worship. Venite Psalm 95.1–7
Come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us shout for joy to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms. For the Lord is a great God,
and a great king above all gods. In his hand are the caverns of the earth,
and the heights of the hills are his also. The sea is his for he made it,
and his hands have moulded the dry land. Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee,
and kneel before the Lord our maker. For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!
First Reading Genesis 28: 10-19a Sara Gateman
Psalm 86: 11-17 Karen Hudson
Teach me your way, O God, and I will walk in your truth;
knit my heart to you that I may fear your name. I will thank you, O my god, with all my heart, and glorify your name for evermore. R. God great is your love toward me;
you have delivered me from the nethermost Pit. The arrogant rise up against me, O God,
and the violent are gathered to seek my life; they have not set you before their eyes. R.
But you, O God, are gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger, and full of kindness and truth.
Turn to me and have mercy upon me;
Give your strength to your servant, and save the child of your handmaid. Show me a sign of your favour,
so that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed; because you, O God, have helped me and comforted me. R.
Second Reading Romans 8: 12-25 Erinn Roberts Gradual Hymn: “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)”
The sun comes up it’s a new day dawning, It’s time to sing Your song again.
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me, Let me be singing when the evening comes.
Chorus: Bless the Lord O my soul O my soul Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before O my soul I’ll worship Your holy name. You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger, Your name is great and Your heart is kind. For all Your goodness I will keep on singing,
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find. Chorus And on that day when my strength is failing,
The end draws near and my time has come. Still my soul will sing Your praise unending,
Ten thousand years and then for ever more. Chorus

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 Lord's Prayer
Celebrant And now, as our Saviour Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,
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.
Recessional Hymn #350 “Stand Up and Bless the Lord”
Stand up and bless the Lord, you people of God’s choice;
Stand up and bless the Lord of hosts with heart and soul and voice. Though high above all praise, above all blessing high,
Who would not fear God’s holy name, and laud and magnify? God is our strength and song, who makes salvation ours;
Then be God’s love in Christ proclaimed with all our ransomed powers. Stand up and bless the Lord; the Lord your God adore;
Stand up and bless the glorious name henceforth for evermore. Dismissal
The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all evermore. Amen.
