The Order of Service is contained in the separate Service Book.
1. Ye servants of the Lord,
each in his office wait,
observant of his heavenly word,
and watchful at his gate.
2. Let all your lamps be bright,
and trim the golden flame;
gird up your loins as in his sight,
for aweful is his name.
3. Watch! tis your Lords command, and while we speak, hes near; mark the first signal of his hand,
and ready all appear.
4. O happy servant he
in such a posture found!
he shall his Lord with rapture see,
and be with honour crowned.
5. Christ shall the banquet spread
with his own royal hand,
and raise that faithful servants head amid the angelic band.
Words: Philip Doddridge (1702-1751)
Music: Narenza, from Catholicum Hymnologium Germanicum 1584 (J Leisentritt),
adapted William Henry Havergal (1793-1870)
(Ancient & Modern 57)
Advent Wreath Hymn
1. Advent candles tell their story
as we watch and pray,
longing for the Day of Glory,
Come, Lord, soon, we say. Pain and sorrow, tears and sadness
changed for gladness on that Day.
2. Prophet voices loudly crying,
making pathways clear;
glimpsing glory, self-denying,
calling all to hear.
Through their message - challenged, shaken hearts awaken: God is near!
Words: Mark Earey (b 1965)
Music: Angel Voices, Edwin George Monk (1819-1900)
(Ancient & Modern 26)
O Lord, raise up, we pray, your power
and come among us,
and with great might succour us;
that whereas, through our sins and wickedness
we are grievously hindered
in running the race that is set before us,
your bountiful grace and mercy
may speedily help and deliver us;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit,
be honour and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
First Reading Isaiah 40.1-11
Comfort, O comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry
to her that she has served her term, that her penalty is paid, that she has received
from the LORDs hand double for all her sins. A voice cries out: In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven
ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. Then the glory of the LORD
shall be revealed, and all people shall see it together, for the mouth of the LORD has
spoken. A voice says, Cry out! And I said, What shall I cry? All people are grass, their constancy is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades,
when the breath of the LORD blows upon it; surely the people are grass. The grass
withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God will stand for ever. Get you up
to a high mountain, O Zion, herald of good tidings; lift up your voice with strength,
O Jerusalem, herald of good tidings, lift it up, do not fear; say to the cities of Judah,
Here is your God! See, the Lord GOD comes with might, and his arm rules for him; his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. He will feed his flock like a
shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms, and carry them in his bosom, and
gently lead the mother sheep.
Second Reading 2 Peter 3.8-15a*
Do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand
years, and a thousand years are like one day. The Lord is not slow about his promise,
as some think of slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish, but all
to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the
heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire,
and the earth and everything that is done on it will be disclosed. Since all these things
are to be dissolved in this way, what sort of persons ought you to be in leading lives
of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God,
because of which the heavens will be set ablaze and dissolved, and the elements will
melt with fire? But, in accordance with his promise, we wait for new heavens and a
new earth, where righteousness is at home. Therefore, beloved, while you are
waiting for these things, strive to be found by him at peace, without spot or blemish;
and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation.
1. Hark! a thrilling voice is sounding;
Christ is nigh, it seems to say; cast away the works of darkness, O ye children of the day.
2. Wakened by the solemn warning,
let the earth-bound soul arise;
Christ, her Sun, all ill dispelling,
shines upon the morning skies.
3. Lo! the Lamb, so long expected,
comes with pardon down from heaven;
let us haste, with tears of sorrow,
one and all to be forgiven;
4. That when next he comes with glory,
and the world is wrapped in fear,
with his mercy he may shield us,
and with words of love draw near.
5. Honour, glory, might, and blessing
to the Father and the Son,
with the everlasting Spirit,
while eternal ages run.
Words: Edward Caswall (1814-1878)
Music: Merton, William Henry Monk (1823-1889)
(Ancient & Modern 38)
Gospel Mark 1.1-8
The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written in
the prophet Isaiah, See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way; the voice of one crying out in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight, John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And people from the
whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and
were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was
clothed with camels hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. He proclaimed, The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. I have
baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.
1. The kingdom of God is justice and joy,
for Jesus restores what sin would destroy;
God's power and glory in Jesus we know,
and here and hereafter the kingdom shall grow.
2. The kingdom of God is mercy and grace,
the captives are freed, the sinners find place,
the outcast are welcomed God's banquet to share,
and hope is awakened instead of despair.
3. The kingdom of God is challenge and choice,
believe the good news, repent and rejoice!
