Hymn of Praise

Kyrie Eleison Have Mercy

WS #144

Chorus
Kyrie Eleison have mercy
Christe Eleison have mercy
(REPEAT)

Verse 1
As we come before You with the needs of our world
We confess our failures and our sin
For our words are many yet our deeds have been few
Fan the fire of compassion once again

Chorus
Kyrie Eleison have mercy
Christe Eleison have mercy
(REPEAT)

Verse 2
When the cries of victims go unheard in the land
And the scars of war refuse to heal
Will we stand for justice to empower the weak
Till their bonds of oppression are no more

Chorus
Kyrie Eleison have mercy
Christe Eleison have mercy
(REPEAT)

Verse 3
If we love our God
With all our heart mind and strength
And we love our neighbours as ourselves
Then this law of love will heal the nations of earth
And the glory of Christ will be revealed

Chorus
Kyrie Eleison have mercy
Christe Eleison have mercy
(REPEAT)

Verse 4
Lord renew our vision to be Christ where we live
To reach out in mercy to the lost
For each cup of kindness to the least in our midst
Is an offering of worship to the throne

Chorus
Kyrie Eleison have mercy
Christe Eleison have mercy
(REPEAT)

Scripture Reading

Kim Rogers, reader

Romans 5:1-5
 
5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Luked 22:1-6
The Message

22 1-2 The Feast of Unleavened Bread, also called Passover, drew near. The high priests and religion scholars were looking for a way to do away with Jesus but, fearful of the people, they were also looking for a way to cover their tracks.

3-6 That’s when Satan entered Judas, the one called Iscariot. He was one of the Twelve. Leaving the others, he conferred with the high priests and the Temple guards about how he might betray Jesus to them. They couldn’t believe their good luck and agreed to pay him well. He gave them his word and started looking for a way to betray Jesus, but out of sight of the crowd.

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Communion

 

Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on 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. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory for ever and ever. Amen.

 

Closing Hymn

Nearer My God To Thee

RH #553

Verse 1
Nearer my God to Thee nearer to Thee
E’en though it be a cross that raiseth me
Still all my song shall be nearer my God to Thee
Nearer my God to Thee nearer to Thee

Verse 2
Though like the wanderer the sun gone down
Darkness be over me my rest a stone
Yet in my dreams I’d be nearer my God to Thee
Nearer my God to Thee nearer to Thee

Verse 3
There let the way appear steps unto heav’n
All that Thou sendest me in mercy giv’n
Angels to beckon me nearer my God to Thee
Nearer my God to Thee nearer to Thee

Verse 4
Then with my waking tho’ts bright with Thy praise
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I’ll raise
So by my woes to be nearer my God to Thee
Nearer my God to Thee nearer to Thee

Verse 5
Or if on joyful wing cleaving the sky
Sun moon and stars forgot upward I fly
Still all my song shall be nearer my God to Thee
Nearer my God to Thee nearer to Thee
