First Reading – 1 Samuel 15 v34 to 16v13


34Then Samuel went to Ramah; and Saul went up to his house in Gibeah of Saul.  35Samuel did not see Saul again until the day of his death, but Samuel grieved over Saul.  And the Lord was sorry that he had made Saul king over Israel.


16The Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you grieve over Saul?  I have rejected him from being king over Israel.  Fill your horn with oil and set out; I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite, for I have provided for myself a king among his sons.”  2Samuel said, “How can I go?  If Saul hears of it, he will kill me.”  And the Lord said, “Take a heifer with you, and say, ‘I have come to sacrifice to the Lord.’  3Invite Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what you shall do; and you shall anoint for me the one whom I name to you.”  4Samuel did what the Lord commanded, and came to Bethlehem.  The elders of the city came to meet him trembling, and said, “Do you come peaceably?”  5He said, “Peaceably; I have come to sacrifice to the Lord; sanctify yourselves and come with me to the sacrifice.” And he sanctified Jesse and his sons and invited them to the sacrifice.  6When they came, he looked on Eliab and thought, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is now before the Lord”, 7But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for the Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”  8Then Jesse called Abinadab, and  made him pass before Samuel.  He said, “Neither has the Lord chosen this one.”  9Then Jesse made Shammah pass by.  And he said, “Neither has the Lord chosen this one.” 10Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel, and Samuel said to Jesse, “The Lord has not chosen any of these.”  11Samuel said to Jesse, “Are all your sons here?”  And he said, “There remains yet the youngest, but he is keeping the sheep.”  And Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and bring him; for we will not sit down until he comes here.”  12He sent and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and had beautiful eyes, and was handsome.  The Lord said, “Rise and anoint him; for this is the one.” 13Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the presence of his brothers; and the spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David from that day forward.  Samuel then set out and went to Ramah.

Gospel Reading – Mark 4 v26-34

26He also said, “The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed on the ground, 27and would sleep and rise night and day, and the seed would sprout and grow, he does not know how.  28The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head.  29But when the grain is ripe, at once he goes in with his sickle, because the harvest has come.”  30He also said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it?  31It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; 32yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.”  33With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it; 34he did not speak to them except in parables, but he explained everything in private to his disciples.


All my hope on God is founded


All my hope on God is founded;

he doth still my trust renew.

Me through change and chance he guideth,

only good and only true.

God unknown, he alone

calls my heart to be his own.


Human pride and earthly glory,

sword and crown betray his trust;

what with care and toil he buildeth,

tow’r and temple, fall to dust.

But God’s pow’r, hour by hour,

is my temple and my tow’r.


God’s great goodness aye endureth,

deep his wisdom, passing thought:

splendour, light and life attend him,

beauty springeth out of naught.

Evermore, from his store,

new-born worlds rise and adore.


Still from earth to God eternal

sacrifice of praise be done,

high above all praises praising

for the gift of Christ his Son.

Christ doth call one and all:

ye who follow shall not fall.


I will enter his gates


I will enter his gates

with thanksgiving in my heart,

I will enter his courts with praise,

I will say this is the day

that the Lord has made,

I will rejoice for his has made me glad.

He has made me glad, he had made me glad,

I will rejoice for he has made me glad.

He has made me glad, he had made me glad,

I will rejoice for he has made me glad.




Praise my soul the King of heaven

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven!
To his feet thy tribute bring;
ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
who like me his praise should sing?
Praise him! Praise him!

Praise him! Praise him!
Praise the everlasting King!

Praise him for his grace and favour
to our fathers in distress;
praise him still the same as ever,
slow to chide, and swift to bless:
Praise him! Praise him!

Praise him! Praise him!
Glorious in his faithfulness!

Father-like, he tends and spares us,
well our feeble frame he knows;
in his hands he gently bears us,
rescues us from all our foes:
Praise him! Praise him!

Praise him! Praise him!
Widely as his mercy flows!

Angels, help us to adore him;
ye behold him face to face;
sun and moon, bow down before him,
dwellers all in time and space:
Praise him! Praise him!

Praise him! Praise him!
Praise with us the God of grace!
