you what to do.” 5She said to her, “All that you tellme I will do.” 13So Boaz took Ruth and she becamehis wife. When they cametogether, the Lord made her conceive, and she borea son. 14Then the women said to Naomi, “Blessed bethe Lord, who has not left you this day without next-of-kin; and may his name be renowned in Israel!15He shall be to you a restorer of life and a nourisherof your old age; for your daughter-in-law who lovesyou, who is more to you than seven sons, has bornehim.” 16Then Naomi took the child and laid him inher bosom, and became his nurse. 17The women ofthe neighbourhood gave him a name, saying, “A sonhas been born to Naomi.” They named him Obed; hebecame the father of Jesse, the father of David.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.PSALM 127 (Tone II.1) Unless the LORD builds the house, *their labor is in vain who build it. Unless the LORD watches over the city, *in vain the watchman keeps his vigil. It is in vain that you rise so early and go to bed so late; *vain too to eat the bread of toil / for he gives to his belovedsleep. Children are a heritage from the LORD, *and the fruit of the womb is a gift. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior *are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them! *he shall not be put to shame when he contends with hisenemies in the gate.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son: and to the Holy Spirit.As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be: world without end Amen.A READING FROM THE LETTER TO THE HEBREWS 9:24–28 Read by Joyce Connell24For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made byhuman hands, a mere copy of the true one, but heentered into heaven itself, now to appear in thepresence of God on our behalf. 25Nor was it to offerhimself again and again, as the high priest entersthe Holy Place year after year with blood that is nothis own; 26for then he would have had to suffer againand again since the foundation of the world. But asit is, he has appeared once for all at the end of theage to remove sin by the sacriﬁce of himself. 27Andjust as it is appointed for mortals to die once, andafter that the judgement, 28so Christ, having beenoffered once to bear the sins of many, will appear asecond time, not to deal with sin, but to save thosewho are eagerly waiting for him.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.Gospel AlleluiaChoir: Alleluia Alleluia AlleluiaAll: Alleluia Alleluia AlleluiaCantor: With Thee is the fountain of life: in Thy light shall we see light.All: Alleluia Alleluia AlleluiaGospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ

They will receive thegreater condemnation.” 41He sat down opposite thetreasury, and watched the crowd putting money intothe treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. 42Apoor widow came and put in two small copper coins,which are worth a penny. 43Then he called hisdisciples and said to them, “TrulyI tell you, this poor widow has put in more than allthose who are contributing to the treasury. 44For allof them have contributed out of their abundance;but she out of her poverty has put in everything shehad, all she had to live on.”The Gospel of Christ.

Heentered the newly established Royal College of Music inLondon at the age of 14, lost both his parents shortly after, andhad to make his own way as an orphaned teenager, studyingpiano, organ and composition. The last was under Sir CharlesStanford, who taught many of the English composers whoemerged at the end of the 19th century, including RalphVaughan Williams, Gustav Holst, Herbert Howells and a host ofothers. Ireland emerged as a celebrated composer towards theend of World War I when his Violin Sonata No.2 brought himovernight fame. From then until his death in 1962 he led anoutwardly uneventful life combining composition, compositionteaching at the Royal College (where his pupils included
Benjamin Britten and E.J. Moeran), and his position as organistand choirmaster at St. Lukes Church, Chelsea, in London. Hecomposed a great deal of music, although not a lot for thechurch. Ireland is known throughout the English-speakingworld for his music to the hymn “My song is love unknown”,and is justly famous for “Greater love”, this morning’s anthem,which he wrote in 1912. Both “Sursum corda” (the prelude)and “Alla marcia” (the postlude) were composed a year earlier.This afternoon at 4 oclock the choir and lead singers, alongwith piper Rob Crabtree, present an hommage to those who didnot return from either of the Great Wars, and to our veterans.The programme is a mix of sacred and secular music, includingsome sing-along pieces for the audience.
