First Reading – 1 Samuel 3 v1-10

1Now the boy Samuel was ministering to the Lord under Eli.  The word of the Lord was rare in those days; visions were not widespread.  2At that time Eli, whose eyesight had begun to grow dim so that he could not see, was lying down in his room; 3the lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the temple of the Lord, where the ark of God was.  4Then the Lord called, “Samuel! Samuel!” and he said, “Here I am!” 5and ran to Eli, and said, “Here I am, for you called me.”  But he said, “I did not call; lie down again.”  So he went and lay down. 6The Lord called again, “Samuel!” Samuel got up and went to Eli, and said, “Here I am, for you called me.”  But he said, “I did not call, my son; lie down again.”  7Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, and the word of the Lord had not yet been revealed to him.  8The Lord called Samuel again, a third time.  And he got up and went to Eli, and said, “Here I am, for you called me.”  Then Eli perceived that the Lord was calling the boy.  9Therefore Eli said to Samuel, “Go, lie down; and if he calls you, you shall say, ‘Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.’”  So Samuel went and lay down in his place.  10Now the Lord came and stood there, calling as before, “Samuel! Samuel!”  And Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”

 

Gospel Reading – John 1 v43-51

43The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.”  44Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.  45Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him about whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth. 46Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?”  Philip said to him, “Come and see.”  47When Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him, he said of him, “Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!” 48Nathanael asked him, “Where did you get to know me?”  Jesus answered, “I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.”  49Nathanael replied, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God!  You are the King of Israel!”  50Jesus answered, “Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?  You will see greater things than these.”  51And he said to him, “Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”

On Jordan’s bank the Baptist’s cry

 

On Jordan’s bank the Baptist’s cry

announces that the Lord is nigh;

awake, and hearken, for he brings

glad tidings of the King of kings.

 

Then cleansed be ev’ry breast from sin;

make straight the way for God within;

prepare we in our hearts a home,

where such a mighty guest may come.

 

For thou art our salvation, Lord,

our refuge and our great reward;

without thy grace we waste away,

like flow’rs that wither and decay.

 

To heal the sick stretch out thine hand,

and bid the fallen sinner stand;

shine forth and let thy light restore

earth’s own true loveliness once more.

 

All praise, eternal Son, to thee

whose advent doth thy people free,

whom wish the Father we adore

and Holy Ghost for evermore.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Come Holy Spirit our hearts inspire

 

Come, Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire,

let us thine influence prove;

source of the old prophetic fire,

fountain of life and love.

 

Come, Holy Ghost – for, moved by thee,

thy prophets wrote and spoke –

unlock the truth, thyself the key,

unseal the sacred book.

 

Expand thy wings, celestial Dove,

brood o’er our nature’s night;

on our disordered spirits move,

and let there now be light.

 

God, through himself, we then shall know,

if thou within us shine;

and sound, with all thy saints below,

the depths of love divine.

Lord, the light of your love is shining

 

Lord, the light of your love is shining,

in the midst of the darkness, shining;

Jesus, Light of the World, shine upon us,

set us free by the truth you now bring us.

Shine on me, shine on me.

 

Shine, Jesus, shine,

fill this land with the Father’s glory;

blaze, Spirit, blaze,

set our hearts on fire.

Flow, river, flow,

flood the nations with grace and mercy;

send forth your word, Lord,

and let there be light.

 

Lord, I come to your awesome presence,

from the shadows into your radiance;

by the blood I may enter your brightness,

search me, try me, consume all my darkness.

Shine on me, shine on me.

 

As we gaze on your kingly brightness,

so our faces display your likeness,

ever changing from glory to glory;

mirrored here may our lives tell your story.

Shine on me, shine on me.
