First Reading – Psalm 1

 

1Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers;
2but their delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law they meditate day and night.
3They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither.   In all that they do, they prosper.

4The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;

6for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

 

 

 

 

O worship the Lord

 

O worship the Lord

in the beauty of holiness;

bow down before him,

his glory proclaim;

with gold of obedience

and incense of lowliness,

kneel and adore him:

the Lord is his name.

 

Low at his feet lay

thy burden of carefulness:

high on his heart

he will bear it for thee,

comfort thy sorrows,

and answer thy prayerfulness,

guiding thy steps

as may best for thee be.

 

Fear not to enter

his courts in the slenderness

of the poor wealth

thou wouldst reckon as thine:

truth in its beauty,

and love in its tenderness,

these are the off’rings

to lay on his shrine.

 

These, though we bring them

in trembling and fearfulness,

he will accept

for the name that is dear;

mornings of joy give

for evenings of tearfulness,

trust for our trembling

and hope for our fear.

Gospel Reading – Matthew 22 v34-40

The Greatest Commandment

34Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together.   35One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”   37Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’   38This is the first and greatest commandment.   39And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’   40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus shall reign

 

Jesus shall reign where’er the sun

does his successive journeys run;

his kingdom stretch from shore to shore,

till moons shall wax and wane no more.

 

People and realms of ev’ry tongue

dwell on his love with sweetest song,

and infant voices shall proclaim

their early blessings on his name.

 

Blessings abound where’er he reigns:

the pris’ners leap to lose their chains;

the weary find eternal rest,

and all the humble poor are blest.

 

To him shall endless prayer be made,

and praises throng to crown his head;

his name like incense shall arise

with ev’ry morning sacrifice.

 

Let ev’ry creature rise and bring

peculiar honours to our King;

angels descend with songs again,

and earth repeat the loud amen.

We have a gospel to proclaim

We have a gospel to proclaim,

good news for all throughout the earth;

the gospel of a Saviour’s name:

we sing his glory, tell his worth.

 

Tell of his birth at Bethleham,

not in a royal house or hall,

but in a stable dark and dim,

the Word made flesh, a light for all.

 

Tell of his death at Calvary,

hated by those he came to save;

in lonely suff’ring on the cross:

for all he loved, his life he gave.

 

Tell of that glorious Easter morn.

empty the tomb, for he was free;

he broke the pow’r of death and hell

that we might share his victory.

 

Tell of his reign at God’s right hand,

by all creation glorified.

He sends his Spirit on his Church

to live for him, the Lamb who died.

 

Now we rejoice to name him King;

Jesus is Lord of all the earth.

This gospel-message we proclaim:

we sing his glory, tell his worth.
