First Reading – Revelation 7 v9-14

 

The great multitude in white robes

 

9After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.   They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands

10And they cried out in a loud voice:

‘Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.’   11All the angels were standing round the throne and round the elders and the four living creatures.   They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshipped God, 12saying: ‘Amen!
Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honour and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever.   Amen!’   13Then one of the elders asked me, ‘These in white robes – who are they, and where did they come from?’

14I answered, ‘Sir, you know.’   And he said, ‘These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

 

 

Gospel Reading – Matthew 5 v1-12

 

1When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him.   2Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:   3“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.   5“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.   6“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.   7“Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.   8“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.   9“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.   10“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.   11“Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.   12Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

 

Dear Lord and Father of Mankind - 144

 

Dear Lord and Father of mankind,

forgive our foolish ways!

Re-clothe us in our rightful mind,

in purer lives thy service find,

in deeper rev’rence praise,

in deeper rev’rence praise.

In simple trust like theirs who heard,

beside the Syrian sea,

the gracious calling of the Lord,

let us, like them, without a word,

rise up and follow thee,

rise up and follow thee.

 

O Sabbath rest by Galilee!

O calm of hills above,

where Jesus knelt to share with thee

the silence of eternity,

interpreted by love!

Interpreted by love!

 

Drop thy still dews of quietness,

till all our strivings cease;

take from our souls the strain and stress,

and let our ordered lives confess

the beauty of thy peace,

the beauty of thy peace.

 

Breath through the heats of our desire

thy coolness and thy balm;

let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;

speak through the earthquake,

wind and fire,

O still small voice of calm!

O still small voice of calm!

 

 

Be still for the presence of the Lord - 67

Be still, for the presence of the Lord,

the Holy One, is here.

Come, bow before him now,

with reverence and fear.

In him no sin is found,

we stand on holy ground.

Be still, for the presence of the Lord,

the Holy One, is here.

 

Be still, for the glory of the Lord

is shining all around;

he burns with holy fire,

with splendour he is crowned.

How awesome is the sight,

our radiant King of light!

Be still, for the glory of the Lord

is shining all around.

 

Be still, for the power of the Lord

is moving in this place;

he comes to cleanse and heal,

to minister his grace.

No work too hard for him,

in faith receive from him.

Be still, for the power of the Lord

is moving in this place.

Lord of all Hopefulness - 413

 

Lord of all hopefulness,

Lord of all joy,

whose trust, ever childlike,

no cares could destroy,

be there at our waking,

and give us, we pray,

your bliss in our hearts, Lord,

at the break of the day.

 

Lord of all eagerness,

Lord of all faith,

whose strong hands were skilled

at the plane and the lathe,

be there at our labours,

and give us, we pray,

your strength in our hearts, Lord,

at the noon of the day.

 

Lord of all kindliness,

Lord of all grace,

your hands swift to welcome,

your arms to embrace,

be there at our homing,

and give us, we pray,

your love in our hearts, Lord,

at the eve of the day.

 

Lord of all gentleness,

Lord of all calm,

whose voice is contentment,

whose presence is balm,

be there at our sleeping,

and give us, we pray,

your peace in our hearts, Lord,

at the end of the day.
