  • 7. Blessed are you, Lord God, Earth-maker, star-lighter, world-lover. You sang creation into being by the power of yourWord; Yet not a sparrow falls to the ground without you knowing it, And the very hairs on our heads are numbered! Praise you for the mind-blowing scale of your greatness And the searing intimacy of your love.
  • 8. Blessed are you, Jesus Christ, Truth-teller, bread-giver, Kingdom-bringer. You are Emmanuel – ‘God with us’; You whispered words of love and welcome, and we howled for your crucifixion, Yet instead of judgement, we hear your plea for us: ‘Father, forgive them!’ Praise you for the shocking generosity of your grace And the New Creation you bring to birth.
  • 9. Blessed are you, Holy Spirit, Dead-raiser, joy-bringer, heart-dweller. You are the voice of justice that inspired the prophets and the Power that raised Jesus from the dead, Yet you make us your dwelling place, intimately, filling us with the very Life of God. Praise you for the abundant Life that you bring And your presence with us, moment by moment.

  • 11. I come with joy I come with joy to meet my Lord, forgiven, loved, and free, in awe and wonder to recall his life laid down for me. I come with Christians far and near to find, as all are fed, the new community of love in Christ's communion bread.
  • 12. As Christ breaks bread and bids us share, each proud division ends. That love that made us makes us one, and strangers now are friends. And thus with joy we meet our Lord. His presence, always near, is in such friendship better known: we see and praise him here.
  • 13. Together met, together bound, we'll go our different ways, and as his people in the world, we'll live and speak his praise. (BrianWren)

  • 15. ‘Give us this day our daily bread’
  • 16. Put peace into each other’s hands Put peace into each other's hands and like a treasure hold it; protect it like a candle flame, with tenderness enfold it. Put peace into each other's hands with loving expectation; be gentle in your words and ways, in touch with God's creation.
  • 17. Put peace into each other's hands, like bread we break for sharing; look people warmly in the eye: our life is meant for caring. As at communion, shape your hands into a waiting cradle; the gift of Christ receive, revere, united round the table.
  • 18. Put Christ into each other's hands, he is love's deepest measure; in love make peace, give peace a chance and share it like a treasure. (Fred Kaan)

  • 21. We pray for peace We pray for peace, but not the easy peace built on complacency and not the truth of God. We pray for real peace, the peace God's love alone can seal. We pray for peace, but not the cruel peace, leavingGod's poor bereft and dying in distress, we pray for real peace, enriching all the human race.
  • 22. We pray for peace, and not the evil peace, defending unjust laws and nursing prejudice, but for the real peace of justice, mercy, truth and love We pray for peace: holy communion with Christ our risen Lord and every living thing; God's will fulfilled on earth and all his creatures reconciled
  • 23. We pray for peace, and for the sake of peace, look to the risen Christ who gives the grace we need, to serve the cause of peace and make our own self-sacrifice God, give us peace: if you withdraw your love, there is no peace for us nor any hope of it.With you to lead us on, through death or tumult, peace will come (Alan Gaunt)
  • 24. Dear God Help us to treat others, as we would like to be treated. For those who are in trouble, in prison, or trapped by their own weakness and hurts. (Silence.) We pray for understanding and forgiveness. As we are forgiven, Help us to forgive others.
  • 25. For those who are poor, and suffer injustice, who are hungry and homeless and filled with despair. (Silence.) We pray for justice and a fair distribution of the world's resources. As we are advantaged, Help us to give to others.
  • 26. For those who mourn, and have lost people they love, who are sad and feel lonely and unsure of tomorrow. (Silence.) We pray for them to comforted, and given new hope. As we are loved, Help us to love others.
  • 27. For the family of the Church, in its joy and its pain, for its struggle to be the body of Christ, and a sign of the Kingdom that comes. (Silence.) We pray for direction, and love, for confidence and care. As we are accepted, Help us to accept others. Amen.
  • 28. This is the truth we hold This is the truth we hold, source of the joy we share, hope that can make us bold trusting the name we bear; that ‘Christ has died’ and ‘Christ is risen, in Christ shall all be made alive’.
  • 29. This is the song of praise echoing down the years, true for our present days, through all our doubts and fears; for ‘Christ has died’ and ‘Christ is risen, in Christ shall all be made alive’.

  • 31. One in the faith we share, out in his name we go; Jesus awaits us there, longing that all should know that ‘Christ has died’ and ‘Christ is risen, in Christ shall all be made alive’. (Basil E Bridge)
