We are God's children, and we shall see him as he is.

Helen Gee reads 1 John 3: 1 - 3

HYMN  Click and join in or listen: 

Blest are the pure in heart

1    Blest are the pure in heart,
      for they shall see our God;
    the secret of the Lord is theirs,
      their soul is Christ's abode.

 

2    The Lord, who left the heavens
      our life and peace to bring,
    to dwell in lowliness with men,
      their pattern and their King;

 

3    Still to the lowly soul
      he doth himself impart,
    and for his dwelling and his throne
      chooseth the pure in heart.

 

4    Lord, we thy presence seek;
      may ours this blessing be;
    give us a pure and lowly heart,
      a temple meet for thee.


John Keble ( 1792-1866) and others

PRAYERS  Led by David

Let us join with Martha, saying THE LORD'S PRAYER:

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, the power and the glory,

for ever and ever.

Amen
