Hymn StF 32: Meet and Right it is to Sing

Meet and right it is to sing,
In every time and place,
Glory to our heavenly King,
The God of truth and grace:
Join we then with sweet accord,
All in one thanksgiving join;
Holy, holy, holy Lord,
Eternal praise be thine.

Thee the first-born sons of light,
In choral symphonies,
Praise by day, day without night,
And never, never cease;
Angels and archangels all
Praise the mystic Three in One,
Sing, and stop, and gaze, and fall
O’erwhelmed before thy throne.

Vying with that happy choir,
Who chant thy praise above,
We on eagles’ wings aspire,
The wings of faith and love:
Thee they sing with glory crowned,
We extol the slaughtered Lamb;
Lower if our voices sound,
Our subject is the same.

Father, God, thy love we praise,
Which gave thy Son to die;
Jesus, full of truth and grace,
Alike we glorify;
Spirit, Comforter divine,
Praise by all to thee be given;
Till we in full chorus join,
And earth is turned to heaven.

Charles Wesley (1707-1788)

A Song of the Church


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.)

  Silent Prayer

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.


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.


Final Prayer

Lord our God…
