Tu es Petrus

Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church.

Text: St Matthew 16: 18
Music: Maurice Duruflé 1902-1986


Come, let us to the Lord our God
with contrite hearts return;
our God is gracious, nor will leave
the desolate to mourn.

His voice commands the tempest forth,
and stills the stormy wave;
his arm is sure and strong to smite,
but also strong to save.

Long has the night of sorrow reigned,
the dawn shall bring us light;
God shall appear, and we shall rise
with gladness in his sight.

Our hearts, if God we seek to know,
shall know him, and rejoice;
his coming like the morn shall be
like morning songs his voice.

As dew upon the tender herb,
diffusing fragrance round;
as showers that usher in the spring,
and cheer the thirsty ground:

So shall his presence bless our souls,
and shed a joyful light;
that hallowed morn shall chase away
the sorrows of the night.

Scripture Sentences

The Preces

O Lord open thou our lips

Kenneth Leighton 1929-1988




Almighty God, you have taught us through your Son that love fulfils the law. Grant us grace to love you with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind, all our strength and to love our neighbours as ourselves: through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

First Lesson               Galatians 5  16-25

The Choir sings PSALM 77

I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.

In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.

I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed.

Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.

I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.

Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?

Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?

Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies?

And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.

I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.

I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.

Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?

Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.

Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph.

The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.

The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.

The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.

Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Second Lesson           St Luke 9  51-62


For the fruits of all creation,
Thanks be to God;
For the gifts to every nation,
Thanks be to God;
For the ploughing, sowing, reaping,
Silent growth while we are sleeping,
Future needs in earth’s safe-keeping,
Thanks be to God.

In the just reward of labour,
God’s will is done;
In the help we give our neighbour,
God’s will is done;
In our world-wide task of caring
For the hungry and despairing,
In the harvests we are sharing,
God’s will is done.

For the harvests of the Spirit,
Thanks be to God;
For the good we all inherit,
Thanks be to God;
For the wonders that astound us,
For the truths that still confound us,
Most of all that love has found us,
Thanks be to God.

Hymn to St Peter

Thou shalt make them princes over all the earth; they shall remember Thy name, O Lord.

Instead of thy fathers, sons are born to thee; therefore shall the people praise thee.
Thou art Peter. And upon this rock I will build my church.

Text: Gradual of Feast of St Peter and St Paul; St Matthew 16: 18
Music: Benjamin Britten 1913-1976


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.


Lord, in the fullness of my might
I would for thee be strong;
While runneth o’er each dear delight
To thee should soar my song.

I would not give the world my heart,
And then profess thy love:
I would not feel my strength depart,
And then thy service prove.

I would not with swift-wingèd zeal
On the world’s errands go:
And labour up the heavenly hill
With weary feet and slow.

O not for thee my weak desires,
My poorer, baser part!
O not for thee my fading fires,
The ashes of my heart!

O choose me in my golden time,
In my dear joys have part;
For thee the glory of my prime,
The fullness of my heart!
