The Holy Eucharist: Rite II



Hymn #460: Jesus Christ Our Lord


1 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.


2 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"?


3 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.


4 Alleluia! King eternal,

thee the Lord of lords we own:

Alleluia! born of Mary,

earth thy footstool, heaven thy throne:

thou within the veil hast entered,

robed in flesh, our great High Priest:

thou on earth both Priest and Victim

in the eucharistic feast.


5 Alleluia! sing to Jesus!

his the scepter his the throne;

Alleluia! his the triumph,

his the victory alone;

Hark! the songs of holy Zion

thunder like a mighty flood;

Jesus out of every nation

hath redeemed us by his blood.

And blessed be God's kingdom, now and forever! Amen!



A Collect for Purity

[BCP, p. 355]

have mercy on us;

you are seated at the right hand of the Father:

The Collect of the Day

[BCP, p. 357, 236]

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Let us pray:


Almighty and everlasting God, whose will it is to restore all things in your well-beloved Son, the King of kings and Lord of lords: Mercifully grant that the peoples of the earth, divided and enslaved by sin, may be freed and brought together under his most gracious rule; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.


A Reading from the Book of Jeremiah 23:1-6


Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the Lord. Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who shepherd my people: It is you who have scattered my flock, and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. So I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the Lord. Then I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the lands where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply. I will raise up shepherds over them who will shepherd them, and they shall not fear any longer, or be dismayed, nor shall any be missing, says the Lord.

The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. And this is the name by which he will be called: "The Lord is our righteousness."


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


Psalm 46

[BCP, p. 649-650]

Read responsively by half-verse (at the asterisk).

1 God is our refuge and strength, * a very present help in trouble.


2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be moved, * and though the mountains be toppled into the depths of the sea;


3 Though its waters rage and foam, * and though the mountains tremble at its tumult.


4 The Lord of hosts is with us; * the God of Jacob is our stronghold.


5 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, * the holy habitation of the Most High.


6 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be overthrown; * God shall help her at the break of day.


7 The nations make much ado, and the kingdoms are shaken; * God has spoken, and the earth shall melt away.


8 The Lord of hosts is with us; * the God of Jacob is our stronghold.


9 Come now and look upon the works of the Lord, * what awesome things he has done on earth.


10 It is he who makes war to cease in all the world; * he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear, and burns the shields with fire.


11 "Be still, then, and know that I am God; * I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth."


12 The Lord of hosts is with us; * the God of Jacob is our stronghold.



A Reading from the Letter of Paul to the Colossians 1:11-20

May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.


He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers-- all things have been created through him and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might come to have first place in everything. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.



Hymn #544: Jesus Shall Reign Where'er the Sun (Verses 1-4)


1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun

doth his successive journeys run;

his kingdom stretch from shore to shore,

till moons shall wax and wane no more.


2 To him shall endless prayer be made,

and praises throng to crown his head;

his Name like sweet perfume shall rise

with every morning sacrifice.


3 People and realms of every tongue

dwell on his love with sweetest song;

and infant voices shall proclaim

their early blessings on his Name.


4 Blessings abound where'er he reigns:

the prisoners leap to lose their chains,

the weary find eternal rest,

and all who suffer want are blest.


[Words: Isaac Watts, alt. Music: Duke Street, John Hatton. Public Domain. Reprinted with permission under ONE LICENSE #94266. All rights reserved.]



The People stand, as they are able, for the reading of the Gospel.

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ According to Luke 23:33-43

Glory to you, Lord Christ.


When they came to the place that is called The Skull, they crucified Jesus there with the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing." And they cast lots to divide his clothing. The people stood by, watching Jesus on the cross; but the leaders scoffed at him, saying, "He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Messiah of God, his chosen one!" The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine, and saying, "If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!" There was also an inscription over him, "This is the King of the Jews."


One of the criminals who were hanged there kept deriding him and saying, "Are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us!" But the other rebuked him, saying, "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed have been condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong." Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." He replied, "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise."


The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.



Hymn #544: Jesus Shall Reign Where'er the Sun (Verse 5)


5 Let every creature rise and bring

peculiar honors to our King;

angels descend with songs again,

and earth repeat the loud amen.


[Words: Isaac Watts, alt. Music: Duke Street, John Hatton. Public Domain. Reprinted with permission under ONE LICENSE #94266. All rights reserved.]



The Sermon

by The Rev. W. Hunt Priest, Executive Director of Ligare



AAHH # 172 - Choir Selection - Praise Him

Jesus, Blessed Savior He's worthy to be praised.


1 From the Rising of the sun,

until the going down of the same,

He's worthy, Jesus is worthy,

He's worthy to be praised.


Glory! Glory! In all things give Him glory.

Jesus, Blessed Savior He's worthy to be praised.

A strong deliverer

in Him will I always trust.

The Nicene Creed

[BCP, p. 358]


All standing as they are able, the People pray:


We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.


We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.


We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come. Amen.

LEV #159: Lift Him Up


1 How to reach the masses, those of ev’ry birth,

For an answer Jesus gave the key;

“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,

Will draw all men unto Me.”


REFRAIN:

Lift the precious savior up,

Lift the precious savior up,

Still He speaks from eternity:

“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,

Will draw all men unto Me.”


2 Oh! the world is hungry for the living bread,

Lift the Savior up for them to see;

Trust Him and do not doubt the words that He said,

“I’ll draw all men unto Me.” [Refrain]


3 Don’t exalt the preacher, don’t exalt the pew,

Preach the gospel simple, full and free;

Prove Him and you will find that promise is true,

“I’ll draw all men unto Me.” [Refrain]


4 Lift Him up by living as a Christian ought,

Let the world in you the Savior see;

Then all will gladly follow Him who once taught,

“I’ll draw all men unto Me.” [Refrain]

Eucharistic Prayer B

[BCP, p. 367]



It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.


[Preface of Baptism - BCP, 381]

Because in Jesus Christ our Lord you have received us as your sons and daughters, made us citizens of your kingdom, and given us the Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth.


Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name:


Hymn S-125:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,

Heaven and earth are full of your glory

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.


[Word: Public Domain. Music: From A Community Mass, Richard Proulx © 1971, 1977 GIA Publications, Inc. Reprinted with permission under ONE LICENSE #00216. All rights reserved.]


The people stand or kneel.


We give thanks to you, O God, for the goodness and love which you have made known to us in creation; in the calling of Israel to be your people; in your Word spoken through the prophets; and above all in the Word made flesh, Jesus, your Son. For in these last days you sent him to be incarnate from the Virgin Mary, to be the Savior and Redeemer of the world. In him, you have delivered us from evil, and made us worthy to stand before you. In him, you have brought us out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness, out of death into life.


On the night before he died for us, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, "Take, eat: This is my Body, which is given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me."


After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and said, "Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me."


Therefore, according to his command, O Father,


LEV #260:

We remember his death. We proclaim his resurrection. We await his coming in glory.


[Words: Public Domain. Music: Hezekiah Brinson © 1990 Hezekiah Brinson, Jr. All rights reserved.]


And we offer our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving to you, O Lord of all; presenting to you, from your creation, this bread and this wine.


We pray you, gracious God, to send your Holy Spirit upon these gifts that they may be the Sacrament of the Body of Christ and his Blood of the new Covenant. Unite us to your Son in his sacrifice, that we may be acceptable through him, being sanctified by the Holy Spirit. In the fullness of time, put all things in subjection under your Christ, and bring us to that heavenly country where, with Blessed Matthew, Blessed Stephen, Blessed Augustine, and all your saints, we may enter the everlasting heritage of your sons and daughters; through Jesus Christ our Lord, the firstborn of all creation, the head of the Church, and the author of our salvation.


By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever. AMEN.



The Lord’s Prayer

[BCP, p. 364]


And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,


Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.



The Fraction Anthems

[BCP, p. 364, 407]


Alleluia! Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us!

Therefore let us keep the feast! Alleluia!


LEV #269:

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world:

have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world:

have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world:

grant us peace.

The Gifts of God for the people of God.



LEV #31: Lead Me To Calvary


1 King of my life I crown thee now, Thine shall the glory be; Lest I forget thy thorn-crowned brow, Lead me to Calvary.

REFRAIN: Lest I forget Gethsemane, Lest I forget thine agony, Lest I forget thy love for me, Lead me to Calvary.

2 Show me the tomb where thou wast laid, Tenderly mourned and wept; Angels in robes of light arrayed Guarded thee whilst Thou slept. [Refrain]

3 Let me, like Mary, through the gloom, Come with a gift to thee; Show to me now the empty tomb, Lead me to Calvary. [Refrain]

4 May I be willing, Lord, to bear Daily my cross for thee; Even thy cup of grief to share Thou hast borne all for me. [Refrain]
