O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all tings and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

- "Sing for Joy, Dance in Delight"

Sing for Joy,dance in delight.
Come out from the shadows and feast in Christ’s light.
Into the brightness of God’s love so dear,
Jesus is with us, Jesus inhere!  
He promises comfort, offers us peace.
Grace upon grace, He brings us release.
From the dark night, when morning will dawn,
Jesus is joy, our weeping is gone!

    very God of very God;
    begotten,not made, being of one substance with the Father;
    by whom all things were made;
    who, for us and for our salvation came down from heaven,
    and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man;
    and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;
    He suffered and was buried;
    and the third day He rose again,according to the Scriptures;
    and ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father;
    and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the living and the dead;
    whose kingdom shall have no end.And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life;
    who proceeds from the Father and the Son;
    who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified;
    who spoke by the prophets;
    and we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church;
    we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;
    and we look for the resurrection of the dead,
    and the life of the world to come.Amen.

God Communes with Us In Worship

Song of Preparation"Behold the Lamb”

Behold the Lamb who bears our sins away, slain for us,and we remember
The promise made that all who come in faith find forgiveness at the cross;
So we share in this Bread of Life and we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of peace around the table of the King.

The body of our Saviour Jesus Christ, torn for you, eat and remember
The wounds that heal, the death that brings us life paid the price to make us one;
So we share in this Bread of Life and we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of love around the table of the King.

The blood that cleanses every stain of sin shed for you,drink and remember
He drained death's cup that all may enter in, to receive the life of God;
So we share in this Bread of Life and we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of grace around the table of the King.

And so with thankfulness and faith we rise to respond and to remember
Our call to follow in the steps of Christ as His body here on earth;
As we share in His suffering we proclaim Christ will come again,
And we'll join in the feast of heaven around the table of the King.
