Scripture Sentences and Call to Worship

Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 145

I will extol you, my God and King,
and bless your name for ever and ever. 
Every day I will bless you,
and praise your name for ever and ever. 

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
his greatness is unsearchable. 
One generation shall laud your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts. 

On the glorious splendour of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. 
The might of your awesome deeds shall be proclaimed,
and I will declare your greatness.

They shall celebrate the fame of your abundant goodness,
and shall sing aloud of your righteousness. 
The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 

The Lord is good to all,
and his compassion is over all that he has made. 
All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,
and all your faithful shall bless you. 




Holy and merciful God, you alone know how often we have sinned in wandering from your ways, in wasting your gifts, in forgetting your love. Have mercy on us, O Lord. Forgive our sins and help us to live in your light and walk in your ways, for the sake of Jesus Christ our saviour. Amen.

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried:
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost;
The Holy Catholic Church;
The Communion of Saints;
The Forgiveness of sins;
The Resurrection of the body,
And the Life everlasting.

Prayers of Intercession

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in 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.

Hymn sung by the choir

Just as I am, without one plea
but that your blood was shed for me,
and that you call us, ‘Come to me’,
O Lamb of God, I come.

Just as I am, though tossed about
with many a conflict, many a doubt,
fightings and fears within, without,
O Lamb of God, I come.

Just as I am, you will receive,
will welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve:
because your promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come.

Just as I am – your love unknown
has broken every barrier down –
now to be yours, and yours alone,
O Lamb of God, I come.

Just as I am, of that free love
the breadth, length, depth, and height to prove,
here for a season, then above,
O Lamb of God, I come.
