‘Holy, Holy, Holy’
Daily Reflection for Saturday
Listen to the hymn tune below and sing along with the lyrics if you wish to.
Hymn StF 13: Sing of a God in Majestic Divinity
Sing of a God in majestic divinity,
seeding the heavens with numberless stars,
forming our dust and our dreams of infinity,
God of our genes and the judge of our wars.
Sing of a Child who was cradled so tenderly,
sing of a boyhood by Galilee’s lake;
sing of a cross and a Saviour who wondrously
suffered and died for humanity’s sake.
Sing of a Spirit who daily addresses us,
lives in our sciences, nature, and arts;
moving through all of creation and blessing us,
guiding our minds and engaging our hearts.
Sing of this God who in glory and mystery
chooses to lie in humanity’s womb,
enters the prison and pain of our history,
rises triumphant and opens the tomb.

Prayers of Intercession
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…
