SING A NEW SONG Sing a new song unto the Lord; Let your song be sung from mountains high. Sing a new song unto the Lord, Singing alleluia. Shout with gladness, Dance for joy! O come before the Lord. And play for God on glad tambourines, And let your trumpet sound.

PSALM – THE LORD’S MY SHEPHERD The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want; He makes me down to lie In pastures green; He leadeth me The quiet waters by. My soul he doth restore again; And me to walk doth make Within the paths of righteousness, E’en for his own name’s sake.
My table thou hast furnished In presence of my foes; My head thou dost with oil anoint, And my cup overflows. Goodness and mercy all my life Shall surely follow me: And in God’s house for evermore My dwelling place shall be. Traditional
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION All Sing:Glory and praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ! All Say:I am the light of the world, says the Lord. Whoever follows me will have the light of life. All Sing:Glory and praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ!
AT THE GOSPEL: The Lord be with you. All: And with your spirit. A reading from the holy Gospel according to.... All: Glory to you, O Lord. THE END OF THE GOSPEL: The Gospel of the Lord. All: Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
APOSTLES’ CREED I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
RETURN TO GOD Return to God with all your heart, the source of grace and mercy; Come seek the tender faithfulness of God. (Repeat) Now the time of grace has come, the day of salvation; Come and learn now the way of our God.
THE LITURGY OF THE EUCHARIST Priest: Pray, brethren (brothers and sisters), that my sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God, the almighty Father. The people reply: May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of his name, for our good and the good of all his holy Church.
EUCHARISTIC PRAYER Priest:The Lord be with you. All:And with your spirit. Priest:Lift up your hearts. All:We lift them up to the Lord. Priest:Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. All:It is right and just.
THE COMMUNION RITE At the Saviour’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say: Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil … All: For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and forever. Lord Jesus Christ, who said to your Apostles … … Who live and reign for ever and ever. All: Amen. The peace of the Lord be with you always. All: And with your spirit. Let us offer each other the sign of peace.
Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb. All: Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.
WE COME TO YOUR FEAST We place upon your table a gleaming cloth of white: The weaving of our stories, the fabric of our lives; The dreams of those before us, the ancient hopeful cries, The promise of our future: our needing and our nurture, Lie here before our eyes.
We place upon your table a humble loaf of bread: The gift of field and hillside, the grain by which we’re fed; We come to taste the presence of Him on whom we feed, To strengthen and connect us, to challenge and correct us, To love in word and deed.
We place upon your table a simple cup of wine: The fruit of human labour, the gift of sun and vine; We come to taste the presence of Him we claim as Lord, His dying and His living, His leading and His giving, His love in cup out-poured.
We come to your feast; we come to your feast, The young and the old, the frightened the bold, The greatest and the least. We come to your feast; we come to your feast, With the fruit of our lands and the work of our hands, We come to your feast.
We gather round your table, we pause within our quest, We stand beside our neighbours, we name the stranger “guest”. The feast is spread before us; you bid us come and dine; In blessing we’ll uncover, in sharing we’ll discover Your substance and your sign.
PRAYER FOR TODAY All:O God, who enlighten everyone who comes into this world, illuminate our hearts, we pray. With the splendour of your grace, that we may always ponder what is worthy and pleasing to your majesty and love you in all sincerity. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
THE CONCLUDING RITES The Lord be with you. All:And with your spirit. Look upon those who call to you, O Lord, and sustain the weak; give life by your unfailing light to those who walk in the shadow of death, and bring those rescued by your mercy from every evil to reach the highest good. Through Christ our Lord. All:Amen. After Father’s final blessing. All:Thanks be to God.
BLEST ARE THEY Blest are they, the poor in spirit, Theirs is the kingdom of God. Blest are they, full of sorrow, They shall be consoled. Rejoice and be glad! Blessed are you, holy are you! Rejoice and be glad! Yours is the kingdom of God.
Blest are they, the lowly ones, They shall inherit the earth. Blest are they, who hunger and thirst, They shall have their fill. Rejoice and be glad! Blessed are you, holy are you! Rejoice and be glad! Yours is the kingdom of God.
