Remembrance Day Parade Service
Opening Hymn: 1. 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 the everlasting King. 2. Praise him for his grace and favour To our fathers in distress; Praise him still the same for ever, Slow to chide, and swift to bless. Praise him! Praise him! Glorious in his faithfulness. 3. 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! Widely as his mercy flows. 4. 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 with us the God of grace. Introduction and Confession Let us confess to God the sins and shortcomings of the world: its pride, its selfishness, its greed; its evil divisions and hatreds. Let us confess our share in what is wrong: All: Most merciful God, We confess that we have sinned in thought, word, and deed. We have not loved you with our whole heart. We have not loved our neighbours as ourselves. In your mercy forgive what we have been, Help us to amend what we are, and direct what we shall be; That we may act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with you; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

THE LORD’S PRAYER

St Mary’s Notices for Sunday 12th November 2006
Beauty for brokenness 1) Beauty for brokenness, hope for despair, Lord in your suffering world this is our prayer: bread for the children, justice, joy, peace; sunrise to sunset, your kingdom increase! 2) Shelter for fragile lives, cures for their ills, work for the craftsmen, trade for their skills; land for the dispossessed, rights for the weak, voices to plead the cause of those who can’t speak. God of the poor, friend of the weak, give us compassion we pray: melt our cold hearts, let tears fall like rain; come, change our love from a spark to a flame. 3) Refuge from cruel wars, havens from fear, cities for sanctuary, freedoms to share; peace to the killing fields, scorched earth to green, Christ for the bitterness, his cross for the pain. 4) Rest for the ravaged earth, oceans and streams plundered and poisoned - our future our dreams. Lord, end our madness, carelessness, greed; make us content with the things that we need. God of the poor, friend of the weak, give us compassion we pray: melt our cold hearts, let tears fall like rain; come, change our love from a spark to a flame. 5) Lighten our darkness, breathe on this flame until your justice burns brightly again; until the nations learn of your ways, seek your salvation and bring you their praise. God of the poor, friend of the weak, give us compassion we pray: melt our cold hearts, let tears fall like rain; come, change our love from a spark to a flame.
