Entry Song:
In the name of God the Father, in the name of God the Son,
In the name of God the Holy Spirit, in the name of God.
In the name of God the Father, in the name of God the Son,
In the name of God the Holy Spirit, in the name of God.

Gloria St Gregory:
Glory to God in the highest and peace to his people on earth.

A reading from the 1st Book of Kings 19:4-8

Psalm 33: Taste and see that the Lord is good.  taaste and see.

I will bless the Lord at all times.
His praise always on my lips,
In the Lord my heart will make its boast.
The humble shall see and be glad, the humble shall hear.
Taste and see  that the Lord is good, taste and see.

Glorify the Lord with me,
together let’s praise his name;
I sought the Lord, he answered me,
from all my terrors he set me free; he set me free.
Taste and see that the Lord is good, taste and see.

The angel of the Lord is encamped
round those who revere him to rescue them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Happy is he who takes refuge in him.  Happy is he.
Taste and see that the Lord is good, taste and see.

2nd Reading : Ephesians 4:30 – 5:2

To welcome the Gospel: Alleluia, alleluia.  This is what the Lord asks of you, this, only this: to act justly love tenderly, and walk humbly with your God.  Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel: John 6: 41 – 51

The Preparation  of Gifts: as we bring bread and wine to the altar we sing:
Seed, scattered and sown, wheat, gathered and grown  . . . . .

MacMillan Sanctus & Memorial
St Andrew Lamb of God

The Invitation:
This is the bread come down from heaven,
whoever eats of it will never die.
This is the cup of eternal life;
whoever drinks of it will live for ever.

Priocessional communion song:
Soul of my Saviour, sanctify my breast;
Body of Christ, be thou my saving guest;
Blood of my Saviour, bathe me in thy tide,
wash me with water flowing from thy side.

Strength and protection may thy Passion be;
O Blessed Jesus, hear and answer me;
deep in thy wounds, Lord, hide and shelter me;
so shall I never, never part from thee.

Guard & defend me from the foe malign;
in death’s dread moments make me only thine;
call me & bid me come to thee on high,
when I may praise thee with thy saints for aye.
