    Hymn for the Holy Year of Mercy Paul Inwood 

    Advent Wreath Prayers Malcom Archer 

     Blessed are you, Sovereign Lord, God of our ancestors:

    You called the patriarchs to live by the light of faith

    and to journey in the hope of your promised fulfillment.

    may we be obedient to your call and be ready and watchful to receive your Christ,

    a lamp to our feet and a light to our path;

     for you are our light and our salvation.

     Blessed are you, Sovereign Lord , just and true:

    Your prophet John the Baptist was witness to the truth

    as a burning and shining light.

     May we your servants rejoice in his light,

    and so be led to witness to him who is the Lord of our coming Kingdom.

     Jesus our Saviour and King of the ages.

     Blessed are you, Sovereign Lord, King of Peace:

    The new light of your incarnate word

    Gives gladness in our sorrow, and a presence in our isolation.

    Fill our lives with your light,

    Until they overflow with gladness and praise,

     for you are our light and our salvation.

    Psalm-Prayer (STAND) 

    Psalm 85 (SIT)  RS  based on RORATE COELI 

     I will hear what the Lord has to say;

    a voice that speaks of peace:

     peace for God's people and peace for God's friends,

    and peace for those who turn to God in their hearts.

     Mercy and faithfulness have met;

     justice and peace have embraced.

    Faithfulness shall spring from the earth,

    and justice look down from heaven.

    O Lord, now fill us with joy,

    and our earth shall yield its fruit.

     Justice shall walk before you, and peace shall follow your steps.

    Come, Emmanuel, Come (SIT)  RS

    Reading

    from Three Little Liturgies of the Divine Presence Olivier Messiaen

    The Call RS 

    Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life;

    Such a Way as gives us breath,

    Such a Truth as ends all strife,

    Such a Life as killeth death.

    Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength;

    Such a Light as shows a Feast,

    Such a Feast as mends in length,

    Such a Strength as makes his guest.

    Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart;

    Such a Joy as none can move,

    Such a Love as none can part,

    Such a Heart as joys in love.

    -George Herbert

    E’en So, Lord Jesus (SIT)  Ruth & Paul Manz

    Peace be to you and grace from Him

    Who freed us from our sin,

    Who loved us all, and shed his blood

    That we might savèd be.

    Sing holy, holy to our Lord,

    The Lord almighty God,

    Who was and is, and is to come,

    Sing holy, holy Lord.

    Rejoice in heaven, all ye that dwell therein.

    Rejoice on earth, ye saints below.

    For Christ is coming, is coming soon,

    For Christ is coming soon.

    E'en so Lord Jesus quickly come,

    And night shall be no more. They need no light, no lamp, nor sun,

    For Christ will be their All!
