Hail, Redeemer, King divine! Priest and Lamb, the throne is thine,
King, whose reign shall never cease, Prince of everlasting peace.
Angels, saints and nations sing: ‘Praised be Jesus Christ, our King;
Lord of life, earth, sky and sea, King of love on Calvary.”

 King whose name creation thrills, rule our minds, our hearts, our wills,
till in peace each nation rings with thy praises, King of kings.

The Preparation  of Gifts : Canticle  from the Letter to the Colossians

 Let’s give thanks to God our Father who allows us all to share
in the joys of all the saints who live in light, as God’s true heirs.
God has brought us out of darkness to the kingdom of his Son:
Jesus is God’s most beloved who redeems us from our sin.

Jesus shows the face of God who can’t be grasped by human eye.
Jesus is the first expression of God’s love that unifies.
For in Jesus God created all we see and understand:
all in Jesus, all for Jesus, Jesus forms creation’s plan.

Jesus is the head of God’s Church; Jesus first in all the earth;
first to rise beyond the grave and first in ev’rything of worth;
for in Jesus all the fullness of our God has taken flesh;
heav’n and earth will come to wholeness through the saving blood of Christ.

 Kelvinhall Sanctus with the memorial: Christ has died. .  and Lamb of God. . .

 Communion: 

        Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world: 
        Blessed are those called to the Banquet of the Lamb.
       Blessed are those called to the Banquet of the Lamb.

 Hymn:  Praise the king of all creation, who gives his Son as man’s salvation,
