Merciful Lord, you know our struggle to serve you: when sin spoils our lives and overshadows our hearts, come to our aid and turn us back to you again; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Lord God, whose blessed Son our Saviour gave his back to the smiters and did not hide his face from shame: give us grace to endure the sufferings of this present time with sure

confidence in the glory that shall be revealed;

First Reading – Exodus 2 v1-10

1Now a man from the house of Levi went and married a Levite woman.  2The woman conceived and bore a son; and when she saw that he was a fine baby, she hid him three months.  3When she could hide him no longer she got a papyrus basket for him, and plastered it with bitumen and pitch; she put the child in it and placed it among the reeds on the bank of the river.  4His sister stood at a distance, to see what would happen to him.  5The daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river, while her attendants walked beside the river.  She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her maid to bring it.  6When she opened it, she saw the child.  He was crying, and she took pity on him.  “This must be one of the Hebrews’ children,” she said.  7Then his sister said to Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and get you a nurse from the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?”  8Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Yes.”  So the girl went and called the child’s mother.  9Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child and nurse it for me, and I will give you your wages.”  So the woman took the child and nursed it.  10When the child grew up, she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter, and she took him as her son.  She named him Moses, “because,” she said, “I drew him out of the water.”

For the Beauty of the Earth

 

For the beauty of the earth,

for the beauty of the skies,

for the love which from our birth

over and around us lies:

 

Lord of all, to thee we raise

this our sacrifice of praise.

 

For the beauty of each hour

of the day and of the night,

hill and vale and tree and flow’r,

sun and moon and stars of light:

 

For the joy of human love,

brother, sister, parent, child,

friends on earth, and friends above,

pleasures pure and undefiled:

 

For each perfect gift of thine,

to our race so freely giv’n,

graces human and divine,

flow’rs of earth and buds of heav’n:

 

For thy Church which evermore

lifteth holy hands above,

off’ring up on ev’ry shore

her pure sacrifice of love:

Gospel Reading – John 19 v25-27

25And that is what the soldiers did.  Meanwhile, standing near the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.  26When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, “Woman, here is your son.”  27Then he said to the disciple, “Here is your mother.”  And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home.

Abba Father let me be (x 2)

 

Abba, Father, let me be

yours and yours alone.

May my will for ever be

more and more your own.

Never let my heart grow cold,

never let me go.

Abba, Father, let me be

yours and yours alone.

 

Lord of all Hopefulness 

 

Lord of all hopefulness,

Lord of all joy,

whose trust, ever childlike,

no cares could destroy,

be there at our waking,

and give us, we pray,

your bliss in our hearts, Lord,

at the break of the day.

 

Lord of all eagerness,

Lord of all faith,

whose strong hands were skilled

at the plane and the lathe,

be there at our labours,

and give us, we pray,

your strength in our hearts, Lord,

at the noon of the day.

 

Lord of all kindliness,

Lord of all grace,

your hands swift to welcome,

your arms to embrace,

be there at our homing,

and give us, we pray,

your love in our hearts, Lord,

at the eve of the day.

 

Lord of all gentleness,

Lord of all calm,

whose voice is contentment,

whose presence is balm,

be there at our sleeping,

and give us, we pray,

your peace in our hearts, Lord,

at the end of the day.
