PreludeAir in G major   John Blow


Hymn:  276    For All the Saints  

For all the saints who from their labours rest,
who thee by faith before the world confessed,
thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

But lo! there breaks a yet more glorious day,
the saints triumphant rise in bright array;
the King of glory passes on his way.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

From earth’s wide bounds, from ocean’s farthest coast,
through gates of pearl streams in the countless host,
singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Alleluia! Alleluia!


Almighty God, whose people are knit together in one holy Church, the mystical Body of your Son, grant us grace to follow your blessed saints in lives of faith and commitment, and to know the inexpressible joys you have prepared for those who love you; through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.    Amen.

Reading:   Revelation 7:9-17        read by Mark Curfoot-Mollington
A Reading from the Book of Revelation
After this I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands. They cried out in a loud voice, saying, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!’ And all the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshipped God, singing, ‘Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honour and power and might be to our God for ever and ever! Amen.’ Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, ‘Who are these, robed in white, and where have they come from?’ I said to him, ‘Sir, you are the one that knows.’ Then he said to me, ‘These are they who have come out of the great ordeal; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. For this reason, they are before the throne of God, and worship him day and night within his temple, and the one who is seated on the throne will shelter them. They will hunger no more, and thirst no more; the sun will not strike them, nor any scorching heat; for the Lamb at the centre of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of the water of life, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’
Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.  Thanks be to God.

Gospel:  Matthew 5:1-12

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew.
When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:
‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
‘Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
‘Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
‘Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.
‘Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
‘Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
‘Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
The Gospel of Christ.
Shout for God
Shout for God. Make a happy sound. Clap for God. God is all around.
Hush for God. Let the quiet sing. Wait for God. Deepest feelings bring.
Praise our God. Care for all God’s friends. Love our God. God’s love never ends

The Lord’s Prayer

Hymn:  278    Jerusalem the Golden  

Jerusalem the golden, with milk and honey blest,
beneath thy contemplation sink heart and voice oppressed.
I know not, O I know not what joys await us there,
what radiancy of glory, what bliss beyond compare.

The stand those halls of Zion, all jubilant with song,
and bright with many an angel and all the martyr throng.
The Prince is ever in them, the daylight is serene,
The pastures of the blessed are decked in glorious sheen.

O sweet and blessed country, the home of God’s elect:
O dear and future vision, that eager hearts expect:
even now by faith we see thee, even here thy walls discern;
to thee our thoughts are kindled; for thee our spirits yearn.
