‘Holy, Holy, Holy’
Daily Reflection for Tuesday
Listen to the hymn tune below and sing along with the lyrics if you wish to.
Hymn StF 14: Sing to him in whom Creation
Sing to him in whom creation
Found its shape and origin;
Spirit, moving on the waters
Troubled by the God within;
Source of breath to all things breathing,
Life in whom all lives begin.
Sing to God, the close companion
Of our inmost thoughts and ways;
Who, in showing us his wonders,
Is himself the power to gaze,
And his will, to those who listen,
By a still small voice conveys.
Holy men, both priest and prophet,
Caught his accents, spoke his word;
His the truth behind the wisdoms
Which as yet know not our Lord;
He the love of God eternal,
Which in Christ was seen and heard.
Tell of how the ascended Jesus
Armed a people for his own;
How a hundred men and women
Turned the known world upside down,
To its dark and farthest corners
By the wind of Whitsun blown.
Pray we, then, O Lord the Spirit.
On our lives descend in might;
Let thy flame break out within us,
Fire our hearts and clear our sight,
Till, white-hot in thy possession,
We, too, set the world alight.
Praise, O praise the Holy Spirit,
Praise the Father, praise the Word,
Source, and Truth, and Inspiration,
Trinity in deep accord;
Through thy Voice which speaks within us
We thy creatures own thee Lord.

Let us offer our prayer
with all God’s people
through Jesus Christ our Lord
who ever lives to pray for us.
We pray for the needs of the world…
We pray for the Church…
We pray for all in trouble or distress…
We pray for all who make a new beginning today…
(Other petitions may follow.)
God of compassion and mercy,
listen to our prayer.
May what we ask in Jesus Christ your Son
be done according to his word, who said,
‘Ask, and you will receive,
Seek, and you will find,
Knock, and the door will be opened to you.’
To you, merciful God,
Through your Son,
In the life-giving Spirit,
Be glory and praise for ever. Amen.
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.
Lord our God…
