OPENING HYMN LEV 114– “EVERY TIME I FEEL THE SPIRIT”

Refrain

Every time I feel the spirit; Movin' in my heart I will pray Every time I feel the spirit; Movin' in my heart I will pray

Verse One

Up on the mountains my Lord spoke Out of His mouth came fire and smoke Looked all around me, it looked so fine I asked the Lord could it be mine

Refrain

Verse Two

The Jordan river is chilly and cold. It chills the body but not the soul. There ain’t but one train upon this track. It runs to heaven and then right back.

Refrain

Every time I feel the spirit; Movin' in my heart I will pray Every time I feel the spirit; Movin' in my heart I will pray


Alleluia! Christ is risen. The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia!

You shall receive power when the Holy Ghost has come upon you; and you shall be my witness in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.    Acts 1:8

Confession of Sin (together); BCP Page 41

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

Officiant and People together Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

The Leader Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all

goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen.

The Invitatory and Psalter

+ Lord, open our lips.

And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Leader and People Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Alleluia. The Spirit of the Lord renews the face of the earth: Come let us adore him. Alleluia.

Venite Psalm 95:1-7 (together)

Come, let us sing to the Lord; *

    let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving *

    and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.

For the Lord is a great God, *

    and a great King above all gods.

In his hand are the caverns of the earth, *

    and the heights of the hills are his also.

The sea is his, for he made it, *

    and his hands have molded the dry land.

Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, *
