SERVICE OF WORD AND TABLE

SERVICE OF WORD AND TABLE

Thursday, October 7, 2010

 

Voluntary                                                                               Flutes (Second Suite)                                                                           Clerambault

Today’s service is adapted from The Book of Common Prayer (New York: Church Publishing Incorporated)

“Alleluia, sing to Jesus,” The Hymnal 1982, 460. 

Incense is used around the altar because it is on this table that holy things lie and it is at this table that our celebrations and prayers rise to God. From the psalms, “let my prayers rise like incense. . .”

Alleluia! sing to Jesus! his the scepter, his the throne;

Alleluia! his the triumph, his the victory alone;

Hark the songs of peaceful Zion thunder like a mighty flood;

Jesus out of every nation hath redeemed us by his blood.

Alleluia! not as orphans are we left in sorrow now;

Alleluia! he is near us, faith believes nor questions how:

though the cloud from sight received him, when the forty days were o’er,

shall our hearts forget his promise, “I am with you evermore”?

Alleluia! Bread of Heaven, thou on earth our food, our stay!

Alleluia! here the sinful flee to thee from day to day:

Intercessor, friend of sinners, earth’s Redeemer plead for me,

where the songs of all the sinless sweep across the crystal sea.
