17A reading from Acts chapter 3 The Liturgy of the WordA reading from Acts chapter 31 One dayPeter and John were going up to the templeat the hour of prayer,at three o’clock in the afternoon.2 And a man lame from birthwas being carried in.
18People would lay him daily at the gate of the temple called the Beautiful Gateso that he could ask for almsfrom those entering the temple.3 When he saw Peter and Johnabout to go into the temple,he asked them for alms.4 Peter looked intently at him,as did John, and said,Look at us.
195 And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them.6 But Peter said,I have no silver or gold,but what I have I give you;in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,stand up and walk.7 And he took him by the right handand raised him up; and immediatelyhis feet and ankles were made strong.
20he stood and began to walk, and he entered the temple with them, 8 Jumping up,he stood and began to walk,and he entered the temple with them,walking and leaping and praising God.9 All the people saw him walkingand praising God,10 and they recognized himas the one who used to sit and ask for almsat the Beautiful Gate of the temple; andthey were filled with wonder and amazementat what had happened to him.This is the word of the Lord, thanks be to God.

73O Love that wilt not let me go, I rest my weary soul in thee: I give thee back the life I owe,That in thine ocean depths its flowMay richer, fuller be.HON 517O light that followest all my way,I yield my flickering torch to thee:My heart restores its borrowed ray,That in thy sunshine’s blaze its dayMay brighter, fairer be.
74O joy that seekest me through pain, I cannot close my heart to thee: I trace the rainbow through the rain,And feel the promise is not vain,That morn shall tearless be.O cross that liftest up my head,I dare not ask to fly from thee:I lay in dust life’s glory dead,And from the ground there blossoms redLife that shall endless be.words: George Matheson
