HYMN:      LORD of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy,

Whose trust ever child-like, no cares could destroy,

Be there at our waking, and give us, we pray,

Your  bliss in our hearts, Lord, at the break of the day.


Lord of all eagerness, Lord of all faith,

Whose strong hands were skilled at the plane and the lathe,

Be there at our labours, and give us, we pray,

Your strength in our hearts, Lord, at the noon of the day.


Lord of all kindliness, Lord of all grace,

Your hands swift to welcome, your arms to embrace,

Be there at our homing, and give us, we pray,

Your love in our hearts, Lord, at the eve of the day.


Lord of all gentleness, Lord of all calm,

Whose voice is contentment, whose presence is balm,

Be there at our sleeping, and give us, we pray,

Your peace in our hearts, Lord, at the end of the day.

Gospel:      John 14: 1 – 6, 27





HYMN:            The Lord's my shepherd, I'll not want;
he makes me down to lie
in pastures green; he leadeth me
the quiet waters by.

My soul he doth restore again,
and me to walk doth make
within the paths of righteousness,
e'en for his own name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through death's dark vale,
yet will I fear none ill;
for thou art with me, and thy rod
and staff me comfort still.

My table thou has furnished
in presence of my foes;
my head thou dost with oil anoint,
and my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
shall surely follow me;
and in God's house for evermore
my dwelling-place shall be.




Priest:     Let us pray

            Lord have mercy upon us

All:         Christ have mercy upon us

Priest:     Lord have mercy upon us


Priest:     As our Saviour taught us, so we pray.

All:         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 in to temptation

               but deliver us from evil.

   For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory,

               for ever and ever.  Amen.


Priest:     Rest eternal grant him O Lord,

All:         And let light perpetual shine upon him

The Commmendation


HYMN             And did those feet in ancient time
walk upon England’s mountains green?
And was the holy lamb of God
on England’s pleasant pastures seen?
And did the countenance divine
shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
among those dark satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!
I shall not cease from mental fight,
nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
till we have built Jerusalem
in England’s green and pleasant land.

Priest:   Rest eternal grant him O Lord,

All:      And let light perpetual shine upon him

Priest:   May the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God,

            Rest in peace.

All:      And rise in Glory Amen




Nunc Dimmittis.


Lord now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace:

            According to thy  word.

For mine eyes hath seen: thy salvation.

            Which thou hast prepared: before the face of all  people.

To be a light to lighten the Gentiles:

            And to be the glory of thy people Israel.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost.

As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be:

             world without end. Amen.
