To the fallen sons of earth,

For the promise that it gave—

“Jesus shall His people save.”

 Jesus! Name of wondrous love,

Human name of God above!

Pleading only this, we flee,

Helpless, O our God, to Thee.

Offertory Hymn: 542 (Sandon) Out of the depths I call

Communion: Jesus, Priceless Treasure J.S.Bach

Jesus, priceless treasure,
source of purest pleasure,
truest friend to me,
long my heart hath panted,
till it well-nigh fainted,
thirsting after thee.
Thine I am, O spotless Lamb,
I will suffer naught to hide thee,
ask for naught beside thee.

In thine arms I rest me;
foes who would molest me
cannot reach me here.
Though the earth be shaking,
every heart be quaking,
Jesus calms our fear;
sin and hell in conflict fell
with their heaviest storms assail us;
Jesus will not fail us.

Hence, all thoughts of sadness!
For the Lord of gladness,
Jesus, enters in.
Those who love the Father,
though the storms may gather,
still have peace within;
yea, whate'er we here must bear,
still in thee lies purest pleasure,
Jesus, priceless treasure!

Processional Hymn: 599 (Church Triumphant) Awake! Awake! fling off the night

Anthem: Rise, Crowned with Light Healey Willan

Rise, crowned with light, imperial Salem, rise!

Exalt thy towering head and lift thine eyes!

See heaven its sparkling portals wide display,

And break upon thee in a flood of day.

See a long race thy spacious courts adorn:

See future sons, and daughters yet unborn,

In crowding ranks on every side arise,

Demanding life, impatient for the skies.

See barbarous nations at thy gates attend,

Walk in thy light, and in thy temple bend:

See thy bright altars thronged with prostrate kings,

While every land its joyous tribute brings.

The seas shall waste, the skies to smoke decay,

Rocks fall to dust, and mountains melt away;

But fixed his word, his saving power remains;

Thy realms shall last, thy own Messiah reigns.

Alexander Pope

Offertory Hymn: 345 (Gwalchmai) King of glory, King of peace
