The Second Sunday after Easter
The Gathering of God’s People
The Lord be with you
and also with you.
In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Philippians 4: 6
Opening Hymn: CH368 “Sing of the Lord’s goodness”
Sing of the Lord’s goodness,
Father of all wisdom,
come to him and bless his name.
Mercy he has shown us,
his love is for ever,
faithful to the end of days.
Come, then, all you nations,
sing of your Lord’s goodness,
melodies of praise and thanks to God;
ring out the Lord’s glory,
praise him with your music,
worship him and bless his name.
Power he has wielded,
honour is his garment,
risen from the snares of death.
His word he has spoken,
one bread he has broken,
new life he now gives to all.
Courage in our darkness,
comfort in our sorrow

Spirit of our God most high!
Solace for the weary,
pardon for the sinner,
splendour of the living God.
Praise him with your singing,
praise him with the trumpet,
praise God with the lute and harp!
praise him with the cymbals,
praise him with your dancing,
praise God till the end of days.
Ernest Sands
We come to offer to Almighty God
our worship and praise and thanksgiving,
to confess our sins and to receive God’s forgiveness,
to hear his holy word proclaimed,
to bring before him our needs and the needs of the world,
and to pray that in the power of his Spirit
we may serve him and know the greatness of his love.
Let us confess our sins to God our Father.
Silence is kept.
Heavenly Father,
we have sinned against you and against our neighbour
in thought and word and deed,
through negligence, through weakness,
through our own deliberate fault;
by what we have done
and by what we have failed to do.
We are truly sorry and repent of all our sins.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ who died for us,
forgive us all that is past;
and grant that we may serve you in newness of life
to the glory of your name. Amen.
Almighty God, who forgives all who truly repent,
have mercy on you,
pardon and deliver you from all your sins,
confirm and strengthen you in all goodness,
and keep you in eternal life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Proclaiming and Receiving the Word
O Lord, open our lips
and our mouth will proclaim your praise.
O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning, is now, and shall be for ever. Amen.
Praise the Lord.
The Lord’s name be praised.
Canticle: Hymn 701 Jubilate Deo (sung twice)
Jubilate, ev’rybody,
serve the Lord in all your ways,
and come before his presence singing:
enter now his courts with praise.
For the Lord our God is gracious,
And his mercy everlasting.
Jubilate, jubilate, jubilate Deo!
Fred Dunn (1907-1979)
based on the Canticle ‘Jubilate’ (Psalm 100)
The First Reading: Jeremiah 20: 7-13
You deceived me, Lord, and I was deceived; you overpowered me and prevailed.
I am ridiculed all day long; everyone mocks me.
Whenever I speak, I cry out proclaiming violence and destruction.
So the word of the Lord has brought me insult and reproach all day long.
But if I say, “I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name,”
his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones.
I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.
I hear many whispering, “Terror on every side!
Denounce him! Let’s denounce him!”
All my friends are waiting for me to slip, saying,
“Perhaps he will be deceived; then we will prevail over him
and take our revenge on him.”
But the Lord is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail.
They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonour will never be forgotten.
Lord Almighty, you who examine the righteous and probe the heart and mind,
let me see your vengeance on them, for to you I have committed my cause.
Sing to the Lord! Give praise to the Lord!
He rescues the life of the needy from the hands of the wicked.
The Psalm: Psalm 69: 8-20
8 For your sake have I suffered reproach; ♦︎
shame has covered my face.
9 I have become a stranger to my kindred, ♦︎
an alien to my mother’s children.
10 Zeal for your house has eaten me up; ♦︎
the scorn of those who scorn you has fallen upon me.
11 I humbled myself with fasting, ♦︎
but that was turned to my reproach.
12 I put on sackcloth also ♦︎
and became a byword among them.
13 Those who sit at the gate murmur against me, ♦︎
and the drunkards make songs about me.
14 But as for me, I make my prayer to you, O Lord; ♦︎
at an acceptable time, O God.
15 Answer me, O God, in the abundance of your mercy ♦︎
and with your sure salvation.
16 Draw me out of the mire, that I sink not; ♦︎
let me be rescued from those who hate me
and out of the deep waters.
17 Let not the water flood drown me,
neither the deep swallow me up; ♦︎
let not the Pit shut its mouth upon me.
18 Answer me, Lord, for your loving-kindness is good; ♦︎
turn to me in the multitude of your mercies.
19 Hide not your face from your servant; ♦︎
be swift to answer me, for I am in trouble.
20 Draw near to my soul and redeem me; ♦︎
deliver me because of my enemies.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the be|ginning, is now,
and shall be for ever. Amen.
The Second Reading: Romans 6: 1b-11
Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how
can we live in it any longer? Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were
baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just
as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a
resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin
might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin— because anyone who has died has
been set free from sin.
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was
raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he
died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Hymn before the Gospel: CH638 “O for a heart to praise my God”
O for a heart to praise my God,
a heart from sin set free;
a heart that’s cleansèd by the blood
so freely shed for me.
A heart resigned, submissive, meek,
my great Redeemer’s throne;
where only Christ is heard to speak,
where Jesus reigns alone;
A humble, lowly, contrite heart,
believing, true, and clean,
which neither life nor death can part
from him that dwells within;
A heart in every thought renewed,
and full of love divine,
perfect and right, and pure and good,
a copy, Lord, of thine.
Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart;
come quickly from above:
write thy new name upon my heart,
thy new, best name of love.
Charles Wesley (1707-88)
based on Psalm 51: 10; Ezekiel 36: 26
The Gospel: Matthew 10: 24-39
“The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is enough for students to be like
their teachers, and servants like their masters. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebul, how
much more the members of his household!
“So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will
not be made known. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear,
proclaim from the roofs. Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be
afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet
not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head
are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
“Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But
whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.
“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
For I have come to turn
“‘a man against his father,
a daughter against her mother,
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’
“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son
or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not
worthy of me. Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
Hymn of Faith: CH22“You shall cross the barren desert” (vs 1 and 3)
You shall cross the barren desert,
but you shall not die of thirst.
You shall wander far in safety,
though you do not know the way.
You shall speak your words in foreign lands
and all will understand.
You shall see the face of God and live.
Be not afraid,
I go before you always.
Come, follow Me,
and I will give you rest.
Blessed are your poor,
for the kingdom shall be theirs.
Blessed are you that weep and mourn,
for one day you shall laugh.
And if wicked tongues insult
and hate you all because of me,
blessed, blessed are you!
Bob Dufford SJ (b. 1943)
Based on Isaiah 43: 2-3; Matthew 5: 3-4; Luke 6: 20-21
The Prayers of the People
The Lord be with you
and also with you.
Let us pray.
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
On earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever. Amen.
Show us your mercy, O Lord,
and grant us your salvation.
O Lord, guide and defend our rulers
and grant our government wisdom.
Let your ministers be clothed with righteousness
and let your servants shout for joy.
O Lord, save your people
and bless those whom you have chosen.
Give peace in our time, O Lord,
and let your glory be over all the earth.
O God, make clean our hearts within us
and renew us by your Holy Spirit.
Lord, you have taught us
that all our doings without love are nothing worth:
Send your Holy Spirit
and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love,
the true bond of peace and of all virtues,
without which whoever lives is counted dead before you.
Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.
O God, the author of peace and lover of concord,
to know you is eternal life, and to serve you is perfect freedom:
Defend us in all assaults of our enemies,
that we, surely trusting in your protection,
may not fear the power of any adversaries;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Go before us, Lord, in all our doings, with your most gracious favour,
and further us with your continual help;
that in all our works begun, continued and ended in you,
we may glorify your holy name,
and finally by your mercy attain everlasting life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Creator God,
not limited by time or space;
your Son worshipped in synagogue and temple,
and your Spirit came in power on the disciples as they met in the Upper Room.
By that same Spirit,
guide us as we prepare to reopen the churches in this parish and diocese.
May they be places of safety,
where all feel your welcome, experience your love
and are equipped in your service.
We pray for those who through age or vulnerability will continue to worship at home,
that together we may all rejoice in your goodness and know your blessing,
until we can offer unceasing praise in your heavenly kingdom,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

God of Heaven and Earth,
you created the one human family
and endowed each person with great dignity.
Aid us, we pray, in overcoming the sin of racism.
Fill our hearts with love for you and our neighbour
so that we may work with you
in striving for racial justice.
Help all governments work to eliminate discrimination
from social and civil institutions.
This we pray through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Closing Hymn: Thanks & Praise 63 “I’m not ashamed to own my Lord”
I’m not ashamed to own my Lord,
or to defend his cause;
maintain the honour of his word,
the glory of his cross.
At the cross at the cross where I first saw the light
and the burden of my heart rolled away;
it was there by faith I received my sight
and now I am happy all the day.
Jesus, my God! I know his name,
his name is all my trust;
nor will he put my soul to shame,
nor let my hope be lost.
Firm as his throne his promise stands;
and he can well secure
what I’ve committed to his hands
till the decisive hour.
Then will he own my worthless name
before his Father’s face;
and, in the new Jerusalem,
appoint my soul a place.
verses Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
refrain Ralph Erskine Hudson (1843-1901)
Going Out as God’s People
The Lord be with you
and also with you.
Let us bless the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
To God, who by the power at work within us,
is able to do far more abundantly
than all we ask or think,
to him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus
to all generations for ever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3: 20
