St Gregory Gloria :

Reading: Jeremiah 31: 7-9

Psalm 125:  Those who sow in tears will sing when they reap.
When the Lord freed Sion from its bondage, it seemed a dream,
it seemed a dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
songs upon our lips and in our hearts – it seemed a dream.
Those who sow in tears will sing when they reap.

Even heathen people said : What marvels he does for them,
he does for them.
Yes, indeed, what mighty marvels
has the Lord accomplished for us all – it seemed a dream!
Those who sow in tears will sing when they reap.

Free us, Lord, deliver us from bondage!
Oh set us free! Oh set us free!
Those who sow in tears will sing with joy
when harvest time has come, will sing with joy.
Those who sow in tears will sing when they reap.

Preparation of the Gifts
Through the love of God our Saviour all will be well.
Free and changeless in his favour, all, all is well.
Precious is the blood that healed us,
perfect is the grace that sealed us,
Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us, all must be well

Though we pass through tribulation, all will be well.
Ours is such a full salvation, all, all is well.
Happy still in God confiding,
fruitful if in Christ abiding,
Holy through the Spirit’s guiding, all must be well
