The Collect of the Day

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Let us pray.


O God, whose Son Jesus is the good shepherd of your people: Grant that when we hear his voice we may know him who calls us each by name, and follow where he leads; who, with you and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.


The Liturgy of the Word


The First Lesson: Acts 4: 5-12

The rulers, elders, and scribes assembled in Jerusalem, with Annas the high priest, Caiaphas, John, and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family. When they had made the prisoners stand in their midst, they inquired, "By what power or by what name did you do this?" Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, "Rulers of the people and elders, if we are questioned today because of a good deed done to someone who was sick and are asked how this man has been healed, let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Israel, that this man is standing before you in good health by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead. This Jesus is


`the stone that was rejected by you, the builders; it has become the cornerstone.'


There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among mortals by which we must be saved."


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


The Psalm: 23 chant by S. S. Wesley, Dominus regit me

1 The Lord is my shepherd; * I shall not be in want.


2 He makes me lie down in green pastures * and leads me beside still waters.


3 He revives my soul * and guides me along right pathways for his Name's sake.


4 Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil; *

for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.


5 You spread a table before me in the presence of those who trouble me; *

you have anointed my head with oil, and my cup is running over.


6 Surely your goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, *
