Opening Sentence

From the rising of the sun to its setting my Name shall be great among the nations, and in every place incense shall be offered to my Name, and a pure offering: for my Name shall be great among the nations, says the Lord of hosts. Malachi 1:11


The Confession

Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth his praise, to hear his holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things that are necessary for our life and our salvation. And so that we may prepare ourselves in heart and mind to worship him, let us be in silence, and with penitent and obedient hearts confess our sins, that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.


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 neighbours 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.


Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all 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.

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.


Antiphon and Invitatory Psalm, BCP p. 81; Psalm 95:1-7

The Lord has shown forth his glory:

Come let us adore him.


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 moulded the dry land.


Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, * and kneel before the Lord our Maker.


For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. * Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!

The Lord has shown forth his glory:

Come let us adore him.


The Appointed Psalm and Lessons


The Psalm: Afferte Domino, Psalm 29

1 Ascribe to the LORD, you gods, * ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.


2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his Name; * worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.


3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders; * the LORD is upon the mighty waters.


4 The voice of the LORD is a powerful voice; * the voice of the LORD is a voice of splendour.


5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedar trees; * the LORD breaks the cedars of Lebanon;


6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, * and Mount Hermon like a young wild ox.


7 The voice of the LORD splits the flames of fire; the voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; * the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.


8 The voice of the LORD makes the oak trees writhe * and strips the forests bare.


9 And in the temple of the LORD * all are crying, "Glory!"


10 The LORD sits enthroned above the flood; * the LORD sits enthroned as King forevermore.


11 The LORD shall give strength to his people; * the LORD shall give his people the blessing of peace.


The First Reading: Isaiah 43: 1-7

Thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in exchange for you. Because you are precious in my sight, and honored, and I love you, I give people in return for you, nations in exchange for your life. Do not fear, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you; I will say to the north, "Give them up," and to the south, "Do not withhold; bring my sons from far away and my daughters from the end of the earth--everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made."


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


Canticle 9: The First Song of Isaiah, Ecce, Deus, Isaiah 12 :2-6

Surely, it is God who saves me; * I will trust in him and not be afraid.


For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure defense, * and he will be my Savior.


Therefore you shall draw water with rejoicing * from the springs of salvation.


And on that day you shall say, * give thanks to the Lord and call upon his Name;


Make his deeds known among the peoples; * see that they remember that his Name is exalted.


Sing the praises of the Lord, for he has done great things, * and this is known in all the world.


Cry aloud, inhabitants of Zion, ring out your joy, * for the great one in the midst of you is the Holy One of Israel.


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


The Second Reading: Acts 8: 14-17

When the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them. The two went down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit (for as yet the Spirit had not come upon any of them; they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus). Then Peter and John laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


The Song of Mary: Magnificat, Luke 1:46-55

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; * for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.


From this day all generations will call me blessed: * the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is his Name.


He has mercy on those who fear him * in every generation.


He has shown the strength of his arm, * he has scattered the proud in their conceit.


He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, * and has lifted up the lowly.


He has filled the hungry with good things, * and the rich he has sent away empty.


He has come to the help of his servant Israel, * for he has remembered his promise of mercy,


The promise he made to our fathers, * to Abraham and his children for ever.


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


The Third Reading: Luke: 3: 15-17, 21-22

As the people were filled with expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Messiah, John answered all of them by saying, "I baptize you with water; but one who is more powerful than I is coming; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire."


Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, "You are my Son, the Beloved; with you, I am well pleased."


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

The Remarks and Announcements


The Glory to God:Gloria in Excelsis

Glory to God in the highest, and peace to his people on earth. Lord God, heavenly King, almighty God and Father, we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory. Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, Lord God, Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world: have mercy on us; you are seated at the right hand of the Father: receive our prayer. For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.


The Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth; I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.


He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.


I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
