Hymn

(varies)

 

Come Holy Spirit ever One

With God the Father and the Son

It is the hour our souls possess

With Your full flood of holiness

 

Let flesh and heart and lips and mind

Sound forth our witness to mankind

And love light up our mortal frame

Till others catch the living flame

 

Almighty Father hear our cry

Through Jesus Christ our Lord most high

Whom in the spirit we adore

Who reigns with You for evermore.

 

Amen

 

 

 

 

 

Psalm 119

 

To the Lord in the hour of my distress

I call and he answers me.

 

 “O Lord, save my soul from lying lips,

from the tongue of the deceitful.”

 

What shall he pay you in return,

O treacherous tongue?

 

The warrior’s arrows sharpened

and coals, red-hot, blazing.

 

Alas, that I abide a stranger in Meshech,

dwell among the tents of Kedar?

 

Long enough have I been dwelling

with those who hate peace.

 

I am for peace, but when I speak,

they are for fighting.

 

 

Doxology

 

Praise the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

 

The God who is, who was, and is to come,

at the end of the ages.

 

 

Psalm 120

 

I lift my eyes to the mountains:

from where shall come my help?

 

My help shall come from the Lord

who made heaven and earth.

 

May he never allow you to stumble!

Let him sleep not, your guard.

 

No, he sleeps not nor slumbers

Israel’s guard

 

The Lord is your guard and your shade;

at your right hand he stands.

 

By day the sun shall not smite you

nor the moon in the night.

 

The Lord will guard you from evil,

he will guard you soul.

 

The Lord will guard your going and coming

both now and for ever.

 

 

Doxology

 

Praise the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

 

The God who is, who was, and is to come,

at the end of the ages.

 

 

Psalm 121

 

I rejoiced when I heard them say:

“Let us go to God’s house.”

 

And now our feet are standing

within your gates, O Jerusalem.

 

Jerusalem is built as a city

strongly compact.

 

It is there that the tribes go up,

the tribes of the Lord.

 

For Israel’s law it is,

there to praise the Lord’s name.

 

There were set the thrones of judgment

of the house of David.

 

For the peace of Jerusalem pray:

Peace be to your homes!

 

May peace reign in your walls,

in your palaces, peace!”

 

For love of my brethren and friends

I say: ‘Peace upon you!’

 

For love of the house of the Lord

I will ask for your good.

 

 

Doxology

 

Praise the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

 

The God who is, who was, and is to come,

at the end of the ages.

 

 

The word of the Lord is faithful.

 

And all his works to be trusted.

 

 

God, all-powerful Father,

fill your people with the light

of your Holy Spirit,

that, safe from every enemy,

we may rejoice in singing your praises.

 

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

 

 

Lord, have mercy,

Christ, have mercy,

Lord, have mercy.

 

 

May the Lord be with you,

 

And with your spirit.

 

 

May the Almighty God bless you,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit

 

Amen
