Order of Service - Judy Koskella and Dan Challis - September 25th 2004

 - 13 -

slow to chide and swift to bless:

Alleluia, alleluia!

Glorious in his faithfulness.


3. Father-like, he tends and spares us;

well our feeble frame he knows;

in his hand he gently bears us,

rescues us from all our foes.

Alleluia, alleluia!

Widely yet his mercy flows.


4. Angels, help us to adore him;

ye behold him face to face;

sun and moon, bow down before him,

dwellers all in time and space.

Alleluia, alleluia!

Praise with us the God of grace.


The people stand. The Celebrant faces them and says


Celebrant:          The Lord be with you.

People:               And with thy spirit.

Celebrant:          Lift up your hearts.

People:                We lift them up unto the Lord.

Celebrant:          Let us give thanks unto our Lord God.

People:               It is meet and right so to do.


Then the Celebrant proceeds:


It is very meet, right, and our bounden duty, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto thee, O Lord, holy Father, almighty, everlasting God.


Therefore with Angels and Archangels, and with all the company of heaven, we laud and magnify thy glorious Name; evermore praising thee, and saying,


Celebrant and People:


Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts: Heaven and earth
