      All stand for the entrance of the Three Sacred Ministers, Choir and Servers

                                THE PROCESSION

  Deacon        Let us proceed in peace, Alleluia.
  People        In the name of Christ, Alleluia.

              As the Procession forms and moves to the station, all sing


                I. O worship the King, all glorious above,
                O gratefully sing his power and his love;
                Our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days,
                Pavilioned in splendour and girded with praise.

                II. O tell of his might, O sing of his grace,
                Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space;
                His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
                And dark is his path on the wings of the storm.

                III. The earth with its store of wonders untold,
                Almighty, thy power has founded of old,
                Hath stablished it fast by a changeless decree,
                And round it hath cast, like a mantle, the sea.

                  A station is made at the ikon of Christ Pantocrator

Celebrant       You, Christ, are the King of Glory,
People          The eternal Son of the Father.
Celebrant        Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he
                 suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified:
                 Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it
                 none other than the way of life and peace; through the same Son Jesus
                 Christ our Lord. Amen.

   The Procession re-forms and advances to the Rood Screen as the hymn continues

                 IV. Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?
                 It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;
                 It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
                 And sweetly distils in the dew and the rain.

                 V. Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
                 In thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail;
                 Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,
                 Our maker, defender, redeemer, and friend.

                 VI. O measureless Might, ineffable Love,
                 While angels delight to hymn thee above,
                 The humbler creation, though feeble their lays,
                 With true adoration shall sing to thy praise.

Celebrant        All power is given unto him.
People           In heaven and in earth.

                 Stir up, we beseech you, O Lord, the wills of your faithful people; that
                 They, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may by you
                 be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

       As those in procession take their places in Choir and at the Altar, all sing


                 I. Jesus shall reign where’er the sun
                 Does his successive journeys run;
                 His kingdom stretch from shore to shore,
                 Till moons shall wax and wane no more.

                 II. People and realms of every tongue
                 Dwell on his love with sweetest song,
                 And infant voices shall proclaim
                 Their earthly blessings on his name.

                 III. Blessings abound where’er he reigns;
                 The prisoner leaps to lose his chains;
                 The weary find eternal rest,
                 And all his sons of want are blest.

                 IV. Let every creature rise and bring
                 Peculiar honours to our King;
                 Angels descend with songs again,
                 And earth repeat the loud Amen.

Celebrant   Almighty God,
People      to you all hearts are open,
            all desires known,
            and from you no secrets are hidden.
            Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts
            by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit,
            that we may perfectly love you,
            and worthily magnify your holy Name;
            through Christ our Lord. Amen.

            O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,
            that takest away the sin of the world,
            have mercy upon us.

            in your well-beloved Son, our Lord and King,
            grant that the peoples of the earth,
            now divided and enslaved by sin,
            may be freed and brought together
            under his gentle and loving rule;
            who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

People      Amen.

FIRST READING                                                            Jeremiah 23: 1-6

Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the LORD.
Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who
shepherd my people: It is you who have scattered my flock, and have driven them away,
and you have not attended to them. So I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the
LORD. Then I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the lands where I
have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and
multiply. I will raise up shepherds over them who will shepherd them, and they shall not
fear any longer, or be dismayed, nor shall any be missing, says the LORD. The days are
surely coming, says the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he
shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the
land. In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. And this is the name
by which he will be called: “The LORD is our righteousness.”

Reader            The word of the Lord.
People            Thanks be to God.

CANTICLE                                                       Benedictus (Luke 1: 68-79)
                                                                       Sung by the Choir
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel;
    for he hath visited and redeemed his people;
And hath raised up a mighty salvation for us,
    in the house of his servant David;
As he spake by the mouth of his holy Prophets,
    which have been since the world began;
That we should be saved from our enemies,
    and from the hands of all that hate us;
To perform the mercy promised to our forefathers,
    and to remember his holy covenant;
To perform the oath which he sware to our forefather Abraham,
          that he would grant us
That we being delivered out of the hands of our enemies
    might serve him without fear,
In holiness and righteousness before him,
    all the days of our life.
And thou, child, shalt be called the Prophet of the Highest:
    for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
To give knowledge of salvation unto his people
    for the remission of their sins;

Through the tender mercy of our God;
         whereby the day-spring from on high hath visited us;
To give light to them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death,
    and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

SECOND READING                                                             Colossians 1: 11-20

May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and
may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully giving thanks to
the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light. He
has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his
beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of
the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and on earth
were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or
powers – all things have been created through him and for him. He himself is before all
things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church; he is
the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might come to have first place in
everything. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him God
was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making
peace through the blood of his cross.

People            Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

When they came to the place that is called The Skull, they crucified Jesus there with the
criminals, one on his right and one on his left. Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for
they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots to divide his clothing. And the
people stood by, watching; but the leaders scoffed at him, saying, “He saved others; let
him save himself if he is the Messiah of God, his chosen one!” The soldiers also mocked
him, coming up and offering him sour wine, and saying, “If you are the King of the Jews,
save yourself!” There was also an inscription over him, “This is the King of the Jews.”
One of the criminals who were hanged there kept deriding him and saying, “Are you not
the Messiah? Save yourself and us!” But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear
God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed have been
condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has
done nothing wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your
kingdom.” He replied, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”

Gospeller         The Gospel of Christ.
People            Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Celebrant         Let us confess our faith as we say,
All               We believe in one God,
                  the Father, the Almighty,
                  maker of heaven and earth,
                  of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified
under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father.
With the Father and the Son
he is worshipped and glorified.
He has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic
and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism
for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

THE ANTHEM                                                      Charles Wood (1866-1926)

                   O thou the central orb of righteous love,
                     Pure beam of the most high, eternal light
                   Of this our wintry world, thy radiance bright
                     Awakes new joy in faith, hope soars above.

                   Come, quickly come, and let thy glory shine,
                     Gilding our darksome heaven with rays divine;
                   Thy saints with holy lustre round thee move,
                     As stars about thy throne, set in the height
                   Of God’s ordaining counsel, as thy sight
                     Gives measured grace to each, thy power to prove.

                   Let thy bright beams disperse the gloom of sin,
                     Our nature all shall feel eternal day,
                   In fellowship with thee, transforming clay
                     To souls erewhile unclean, now pure within. Amen.

            I. Son of God, eternal Saviour
                  Source of life and truth and grace,
            Son of Man, whose birth among us
                  Hallow all our human race,
            Thou, our Head, who, throned in glory,
                  For thine own dost ever plead,
            Fill us with thy love and pity,
                  Heal our wrongs, and help our need.

            II. As thou, Lord, hast lived for others,
                 So may we for others live;
            Freely have thy gifts been granted,
                 Freely may thy servants give.
            Thine the gold and thine the silver,
                 Thine the wealth of land and sea,
            We but stewards of thy bounty,
                 Held in solemn trust for thee.

            III. Come, O Christ, and reign among us,
                  King of love, and Prince of peace,
            Hush the storm of strife and passion,
                  Bid its cruel discords cease;
            By thy patient years of toiling,
                  By thy silent hours of pain,
            Quench our fevered thirst of pleasure,
                  Shame our selfish greed of gain.

            IV. Dark the path that lies behind us,
                 Strewn with wrecks and stained with blood;
            But before us gleams the vision
                 Of the coming brotherhood.
            See the Christlike host advancing,
                 High and lowly, great and small,
            Linked in bonds of common service
                 For the common Lord of all.

            V. Son of God, eternal Saviour,
                 Source of life and truth and grace,
            Son of Man, whose birth among us
                 Hallows all our human race.
            Thou who prayedst, thou who willest
                 That thy people should be one,
            Grant, O grant our hope’s fruition:
                 Here on earth thy will be done.

              Music: Ebenezer, from an anthem by Thomas Williams (1869-1944)
                       last verse and descant arranged by David Briggs (b. 1962)


Celebrant   Eternal God,
            by your grace you have raised up
            and enthroned us with Christ in the heavenly realms.
            Receive all we offer you this day,
            and lead us in those good works
            for which you have created us.
            We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord.
People      Amen.


Celebrant   The Lord be with you;
People      And also with you.

Celebrant   Lift up your hearts;
People      We lift them to the Lord.

Celebrant   Let us give thanks to the Lord our God;
People      It is right to give our thanks and praise.

Celebrant   Blessed are you, gracious God, creator of heaven and earth; we give
            you thanks and praise through Jesus Christ. You exalted him as Lord of
            all creation that he might present to you an eternal and universal
            kingdom: a kingdom of truth and life, a kingdom of holiness and grace,
            a kingdom of justice, love, and peace. Therefore at the name of Jesus

            every knee shall bow as heaven and earth proclaim the glory of your

SANCTUS AND BENEDICTUS                                           sung by the Choir

            Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts,
            Heaven and earth are full of thy glory.
            Glory be to thee, O Lord Most High. Amen.

            Blessed is he that cometh in the Name of the Lord:
            Hosanna in the Highest.

                            The people kneel or sit

Celebrant   We give thanks to you, Lord our God,
            for the goodness and love
            you have made known to us in creation;
            in calling Israel to be your people;
            in your Word spoken through the prophets;
            and above all in the Word made flesh,
            Jesus your Son.
            For in these last days you sent him
            to be incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
            to be the Saviour and Redeemer of the world.
            In him, you have delivered us from evil,
            and made us worthy to stand before you.
            In him, you have brought us
            out of error into truth,
            out of sin into righteousness,
            out of death into life.

            On the night he was handed over
            to suffering and death,
            a death he freely accepted,
            our Lord Jesus Christ took bread;
            and when he had given thanks to you,
            he broke it, and gave it to his disciples
            and said, “Take, eat:
            this is my body which is given for you.
            Do this for the remembrance of me.”

            After supper he took the cup of wine;
            and when he had given thanks,
            he gave it to them,
            and said, “Drink this, all of you;
            this is my blood of the new covenant,
            which is shed for you and for many
            for the forgiveness of sins.
            Whenever you drink it,
            do this for the remembrance of me.”

            Therefore, Father, according to his command,
All         we remember his death,
            we proclaim his resurrection,
            we await his coming in glory;

Celebrant   and we offer our sacrifice
            of praise and thanksgiving
            to you, Lord of all;
            presenting to you, from your creation,
            this bread and this wine.

            We pray you, gracious God,
            to send your Holy Spirit upon these gifts,
            that they may be the sacrament
            of the body of Christ
            and his blood of the new covenant.
            Unite us to your Son in his sacrifice,
            that we, made acceptable in him,
            may be sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

            In the fullness of time,
            reconcile all things in Christ
            and make them new,
            and bring us to that city of light
            where you dwell with all your sons and daughters;
            through Jesus Christ our Lord,
            the firstborn of all creation,
            the head of the Church,
            and the author of our salvation;

            by whom, and with whom, and in whom,
            in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
            all honour and glory are yours, almighty Father,
            now and forever.
People      Amen.

                       Here follows a profound silence


Celebrant   And now, as our Saviour Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,
All         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.
            For thine is the kingdom,
            the power, and the glory,
            for ever and ever. Amen.

                The Celebrant breaks the consecrated bread

Celebrant   Alleluia! Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.
People      Therefore let us keep the feast, Alleluia!

Celebrant   The gifts of God for the people of God.
People      Thanks be to God.

                                  All join in singing


                I. Crown him with many crowns,
                The Lamb upon his throne;
            Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns
               All music but its own:
               Awake, my soul, and sing
               Of him who died for thee,
            And hail him as thy matchless King
               Through all eternity.

               II. Crown him the Lord of life!
               Who triumphed o’er the grave,
            And rose victorious in the strife
               For those he came to save.
               His glories now we sing
               Who died and rose on high,
            Who died eternal life to bring,
               And lives that death may die.

                III. Crown him the Lord of peace,
                Whose power a sceptre sways
            From pole to pole, that wars may cease,
                Absorbed in prayer and praise:
                His reign shall know no end,
                And round his pierced feet
            Fair flowers of paradise extend
                Their fragrance ever sweet.

                 IV. Crown him the Lord of love,
                 Behold his hands and side,
              Rich wounds yet visible above,
                 In beauty glorified.
                 All hail, Redeemer, hail!
                 For thou hast died for me;
              Thy praise shall never, never fail
                 Throughout eternity.
