Psalm 100

  1. Cry out with joy to the Lord all the earth:
    worship with gladness,
    and enter the Lord's presence with songs of Joy.
  2. Know that the Lord is God, our maker, whose people we are:
    the flock which the Lord our God shepherds.
  3. Enter the gates of the temple with thanksgiving,
    and go into its courts with praise:
    give thanks, and bless God's holy name.
  4. For the Lord is a gracious God, whose mercy is everlasting:
    and whose faithfulness endures from generation to generation.

Collect

O God, who in the work of creation
commanded the light to shine out of darkness:
we pray that the light of the glorious gospel of Christ
may shine into the hearts of all your people,
dispelling the darkness of ignorance and unbelief
and revealing to them the knowledge of your glory
in the face of Jesus Christ our Lord . . .
Amen.

Our Father,
give us today our daily bread.

Risen Saviour,
you comforted your disciples when you were going to die:
now set our troubled hearts at rest and banish our fears.
You are the way to the Father:
help us to follow you.
You are the truth:
bring us to know you.
You are the life:
give us that life with you, now and for ever.
Amen
