Worthy Worthy (Fieldes and Sooter)
Scripture Reading: 1 Chronicles 29:11-15, 17-18
Yours, O LORD, is the greatness
and the power and the glory
and the victory and the majesty,
for all that is in the heavens
and in the earth is yours.
Yours is the kingdom, O LORD,
and you are exalted as head above all.
Both riches and honor come from you,
and you rule over all.
In your hand are power and might,
and in your hand it is to make great
and to give strength to all.
And now we thank you, our God,
and praise your glorious name.
But who am I, and what is my people,
that we should be able
thus to offer willingly?
For all things come from you,
and of your own have we given you.
For we are strangers before you
and sojourners, as all our fathers were.
Our days on the earth are like a shadow,
and there is no abiding.
I know, my God, that you test the heart
and have pleasure in uprightness.
O LORD, the God of Abraham,
Isaac, and Israel, our fathers,
keep forever such purposes and thoughts
in the hearts of your people,
and direct their hearts toward you.
Judge of The Secrets (Fournier)
Gospel & Thanksgiving
Scripture Reading: 1 Peter 1:3-5
Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ!
According to his great mercy,
he has caused us to be born again
to a living hope through the resurrection
of Jesus Christ from the dead,
to an inheritance that is imperishable,
undefiled, and unfading,
kept in heaven for you,
who by God's power are being guarded
through faith for a salvation ready
to be revealed in the last time.
