Stir up, O Lord, the wills of your faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may by you be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen.


First Reading – Ephesians 1 v15-end

15I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, and for this reason 16I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers.   17I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, 18so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, 19and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power.   20God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come.   22And he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, 23which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.


Alleluia Sing to Jesus


Alleluia, sing to Jesus,

his the sceptre, his the throne;

alleluia, his the triumph,

his the victory alone:

hark, the songs of peaceful Sion

thunder like a mighty flood:

Jesus out of ev’ry nation,

hath redeemed us by his blood.


Alleluia, not as orphans

are we left in sorrow now;

alleluia, he is near us,

faith believes, nor questions how;

though the cloud from sight received him

when the forty days were o’er,

shall our hearts forget his promise,

‘I am with you evermore’?


Alleluia, bread of angels,

here on earth our food, our stay;

alleluia, here the sinful

come to you from day to day.

Intercessor, friend of sinners,

earth’s redeemer plead for me,

where the songs of all the sinless

sweep across the crystal sea.


Alleluia, King eternal,

he the Lord of lords we own;

alleluia, born of Mary,

earth his footstool, heav’n his throne;

he within the veil has entered

robed in flesh, our great High Priest;

he on earth both priest and victim

in the Eucharistic Feast.

Gospel Reading – Matthew 25 v31-end


31“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory.   32All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, 33and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left.   34Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’   37Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink?  38And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing?   39And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’   40And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’  41Then he will say to those at his left hand, ‘You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; 42for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’   44Then they also will answer, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?’   45Then he will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’   46And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”


Majesty, worship his majesty


Majesty, worship his majesty;

unto Jesus be glory, honour and praise.

Majesty, kingdom authority

flow from his throne unto his own:

his anthem raise.

So exalt, left up on high the name of Jesus;

magnify, come glorify Christ Jesus the King.

Majesty, worship his majesty,

Jesus who died, now glorified,

King of all kings.
