First Reading – Amos 7 v7-15

 

This is what he showed me: the Lord was standing beside a wall built with a plumb line, with a plumb line in his hand.  And the LORD said to me, “Amos, what do you see?”  And I said, “A plumb line.”  Then the Lord said, “See, I am setting a plumb line in the midst of my people Israel; I will never again pass them by;
the high places of Isaac shall be made desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste, and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.  10 Then Amaziah, the priest of Bethel, sent to King Jeroboam of Israel, saying, “Amos has conspired against you in the very center of the house of Israel; the land is not able to bear all his words.  11 For thus Amos has said, ‘Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel must go into exile away from his land.’” 12 And Amaziah said to Amos, “O seer, go, flee away to the land of Judah, earn your bread there, and prophesy there; 13 but never again prophesy at Bethel, for it is the king’s sanctuary, and it is a temple of the kingdom.”  14 Then Amos answered Amaziah, “I am no prophet, nor a prophet’s son; but I am a herdsman, and a dresser of sycamore trees, 15 and the Lord took me from following the flock, and the Lord said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.’

Gospel Readings – Mark 6 v14-29

14 King Herod heard of it, for Jesus’ name had become known.  Some were saying, “John the baptizer has been raised from the dead; and for this reason these powers are at work in him.” 15 But others said, “It is Elijah.”  And others said, “It is a prophet, like one of the prophets of old.”  16 But when Herod heard of it, he said, “John, whom I beheaded, has been raised.” 17 For Herod himself had sent men who arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison on account of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife, because Herod had married her.  18 For John had been telling Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.”  19 And Herodias had a grudge against him, and wanted to kill him.  But she could not, 20 for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and he protected him.  When he heard him, he was greatly perplexed; and yet he liked to listen to him.  21 But an opportunity came when Herod on his birthday gave a banquet for his courtiers and officers and for the leaders of Galilee.  22 When his daughter Herodias came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his guests; and the king said to the girl, “Ask me for whatever you wish, and I will give it.”  23 And he solemnly swore to her, “Whatever you ask me, I will give you, even half of my kingdom.”  24 She went out and said to her mother, “What should I ask for?”  She replied, “The head of John the baptizer.”  25 Immediately she rushed back to the king and requested, “I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter.”  26 The king was deeply grieved; yet out of regard for his oaths and for the guests, he did not want to refuse her. 27 Immediately the king sent a soldier of the guard with orders to bring John’s head.  He went and beheaded him in the prison, 28 brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl.  Then the girl gave it to her mother.  29 When his disciples heard about it, they came and took his body, and laid it in a tomb.

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 Bethlehem,

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.

 

God is working his purpose out

 

God is working his purpose out

as year succeeds to year.

God is working his purpose out,

and the day is drawing near.

Nearer and nearer draws the time,

the time that shall surely be,

when the earth shall be filled

with the glory of God

as the waters cover the sea.

 

From the east to the upmost west

wherever foot has trod,

through the mouths of his messengers

echoes forth the voice of God:

‘Listen to me, ye continents,

ye islands, give ear to me,

that the earth shall be filled

with the glory of God

as the waters cover the sea.’

 

How can we do the work of God,

how prosper and increase

harmony in the human race,

and the reign of perfect peace?

What can we do to urge the time,

the time that shall surely be,

when the earth shall be filled

with the glory of God

as the waters cover the sea?

 

March we forth in the strength of God,

his banner is unfurled;

let the light of the gospel shine

in the darkness of the world:

strengthen the weary, heal the sick

and set ev’ry captive free,

that the earth shall be filled

with the glory of God

as the waters cover the sea.

 

All our efforts are nothing worth

unless God bless the deed;

vain our hopes for the harvest tide

till he brings to life the seed.

Yet ever nearer draws the time,

the time that shall surely be,

when the earth shall be filled

with the glory of God

as the waters cover the sea.

 

Eternal Father strong to save

 

Eternal Father, strong to save,

whose arm doth bind the restless wave,

who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep

its own appointed limits keep:

O hear us when we cry to thee

for those in peril on the sea.

 

O Saviour, whose almighty word

the winds and waves submissive heard,

who walkedst on the foaming deep,

and calm, amid its rage, didst sleep:

O hear us when we cry to thee

for those in peril on the sea.

 

O sacred Spirit, who didst brood

upon the waters dark and rude,

and bid their angry tumult cease,

and give, for wild confusion, peace:

O hear us when we cry to thee

for those in peril on the sea.

 

O Trinity of love and pow’r,

our brethren shield in danger’s hour.

From rock and tempest, fire and foe,

protect them whereso’er they go,

and ever let there rise to thee

glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
