Call to Worship
Hymn:
424 Blest be the everlasting God
(Tune: Bishopthorpe)

Blest be the everlasting God
the Father of our Lord!
Be his abounding mercy praised,
his majesty adored!

When from the dead he raised his Son,
and called him to the sky,
he gave our souls a lively hope
that they should never die.

There’s an inheritance divine
reserved against that day;
’tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
and cannot fade away.

Saints by the power of God are kept,
till the salvation come:
we walk by faith as strangers here,
till Christ shall call us home.

(1674-1748), alt. William Cameron (1751-1811)

Prayer of Approach

Hymn:
631 A little child the Saviour came (vs 1-3)
(Tune: Commandments)

A little child the Saviour came,
the mighty God was still his name,
and angels worshipped as he lay
the seeming infant of a day.

He who, a little child, began
to show the world God’s loving plan,
proclaims from heaven the message free
‘Let little children come to me.’

We bring them, Lord, and with the sign
of sprinkled water name them thine:
their souls with saving grace endow;
baptize them with thy Spirit now.

Sacrament of Holy Baptism

Hymn:
631 A little child the Saviour came (vs 4-5)
(Tune: Commandments)

O give thine angels charge, good Lord,
them safely in thy way to guard;
thy blessing on their lives command,
and write their names upon thy hand.

O thou, who by an infant’s tongue
dost hear thy perfect glory sung,
may these, with all the heavenly host,
praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

628 The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ,
God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
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,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come 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

Prayer for Illumination

Readings:
Psalm 24: 1- 6 Betty Collins
John 13: 31 – 35 Revd. John Stevenson

Hymn:
478 Behold the amazing gift of love
(Tune: St. Stephen (Newington)

Behold the amazing gift of love
the Father has bestowed
on us, the sinful sons of men,
to call us sons of God!

Concealed as yet this honour lies,
by this dark world unknown,
a world that knew not, when he came,
ev’n God’s eternal Son.

High is the rank we now possess;
but higher we shall rise;
though what we shall hereafter be
is hid from mortal eyes:

Our lives, we know, when he appears,
shall bear his image bright;
for all his glory, full disclosed,
shall open to our sight.

A hope so great and so divine
may trials well endure;
and purify us all from sin,
as Christ himself is pure.

Sermon:
“As I Have Loved You”

Hymn:
519 Love divine all loves excelling
(Tune: Blaenwern)

Love divine, all loves excelling,
joy of heaven, to earth come down;
fix in us thy humble dwelling;
all thy faithful mercies crown!

Jesus thou art all compassion,
pure, unbounded love thou art;
visit us with thy salvation;
enter every trembling heart.

Breathe, O breathe thy loving Spirit
into every troubled breast!
Let us all in thee inherit;
let us find that second rest.
Take away our bent to sinning;
Alpha and Omega be;
end of faith, as its beginning,
set our hearts at liberty.

Come, Almighty to deliver,
let us all thy life receive;
suddenly return and never,
nevermore thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
serve thee as thy hosts above,
pray and praise thee without ceasing,
glory in thy perfect love.

Finish, then, thy new creation;
pure and spotless let us be.
Let us see thy great salvation
perfectly restored in thee;
changed from glory into glory,
till in heaven we take our place,
till we cast our crowns before thee,
lost in wonder, love, and praise.

Offering and Prayer of dedication
Prayers for others

Hymn:
622 We sing a love that sets all people free
(Tune: Woodlands)

We sing a love that sets all people free,
that blows like wind, that burns like scorching flame,
enfolds the earth, springs up like water clear:
come, living love, live in our hearts today.
We sing a love that seeks another’s good,
that longs to serve and not to count the cost,
a love that, yielding, finds itself made new:
come, caring love, live in our hearts today.
We sing a love, unflinching, unafraid
to be itself, despite another’s wrath,
a love that stands alone and undismayed:
come, strengthening love, live in our hearts today.
We sing a love that, wandering, will not rest
until it finds its way, its home, its source,
through joy and sadness pressing on refreshed:
come, pilgrim love, live in our hearts today.
We sing the Holy Spirit, full of love,
who seeks out scars of ancient bitterness,
brings to our wounds the healing grace of Christ:
come, radiant love, live in our hearts today.
June Boyce-Tillman (b. 1943)

Benediction
Threefold Amen
