Opening Hymn 686 vv. 1 & 3    Come, thou font of every blessing    Nettleton

Come, thou fount of every blessing,
tune my heart to sing thy grace!
Streams of mercy never ceasing,
call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! Oh, fix me on it,
mount of God’s unchanging love.

Oh, to grace how great a debtor
daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,
bind my wandering heart to thee:
prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
prone to leave the God I love;
here’s my heart, oh, take and seal it,
seal it for thy courts above.

Sequence Hymn 587 vv 1 & 2    Our Father, by whose name    Rhosymedre

Our Father, by whose Name
all fatherhood is known,
who dost in love proclaim
each family thine own,
bless thou all parents, guarding well,
with constant love as sentinel,
the homes in which thy people dwell.

O Christ, thyself a child
within an earthly home,
with heart still undefiled,
thou didst to manhood come;
our children bless, in every place,
that they may all behold thy face,
and knowing thee may grow in grace.

Offertory Anthem    Come, renew us    Eleanor Daley (b. 1955)
Sung by the St. John’s Schola
Words: David Adam

Come, Lord, come to us. Enter our darkness with your light,
Fill our emptiness with your presence,
Come, refresh, restore, renew us.
In our sadness come as joy, in our troubles, come as peace,
In our fearfulness, come as hope, in our darkness, come as light,
In our frailty, come as strength, in our loneliness, come as love,
Come, refresh, restore, renew us.

Voluntary    Allegro maestoso e vivace from Sonata II    Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)
