Sundays after Easter
(9/5/2021)

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

Preparation

O Lord, open our lips
ALL and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

In your resurrection, O Christ,
ALL let heaven and earth rejoice. Alleluia.

A prayer of thanksgiving

Blessed are you, God of compassion and mercy,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
In the darkness of our sin,
your light breaks forth like the dawn
and your healing springs up for deliverance.
As we rejoice in the gift of your saving help,
sustain us with your bountiful Spirit
and open our lips to sing your praise.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

ALL Blessed be God for ever.


HYMN – Great is Thy Faithfulness     (Click Here)


Confession
O Jesus Christ, risen Master and triumphant Lord
we come to You in sorrow for our sins,
and confess to You our weakness and unbelief.

We have lived by our own strength,
and not by the power of Your resurrection.
In Your mercy, forgive us
ALL:
Lord, hear us and help us

Leader: We have lived by the light of our own eyes,
as faithless and not believing.
In Your mercy, forgive us
ALL:
Lord, hear us and help us

Leader: We have lived for this world alone,
and doubted our home in heaven.
In Your mercy, forgive us
ALL:
Lord, hear us and help us

Absolution
May the Father of all mercies
Cleanse us from our sins,
and restore us in his image
to the praise and glory of his name,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Canticle

In your unfailing love, O Lord,
you lead the people whom you have redeemed. Alleluia.

I will sing to the Lord, who has triumphed gloriously, 
the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and my song 
and has become my salvation.

This is my God whom I will praise, 
the God of my forebears whom I will exalt.

The Lord is a warrior, 
the Lord is his name.

Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in power: 
your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.

At the blast of your nostrils, the sea covered them; 
they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

In your unfailing love, O Lord, 
you lead the people whom you have redeemed.

And by your invincible strength 
you will guide them to your holy dwelling.

You will bring them in and plant them, O Lord, 
in the sanctuary which your hands have established.

Exodus 15.1b-3, 6, 10, 13, 17

Canticle

Death is swallowed up in victory.
All Where, O death, is your sting?
Christ is risen from the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.

All Death is swallowed up in victory.
The trumpet will sound
and the dead shall be raised.

All Where, O death, is your sting?
We shall not all sleep,
but we shall be changed.

All Death is swallowed up in victory.
Where, O death, is your sting?

The Collect of the day

The Sixth Sunday of Easter
God our redeemer,
you have delivered us from the power of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:
grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,
so by his continual presence in us he may raise us
to eternal joy;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
All Amen.

The Lord's Prayer is said

Rejoicing in God’s new creation,
as our Saviour taught us, so we pray

All Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Amen.
