Trinity Sunday June 19th  2011

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.


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.

Litany of Praise :

Cantor : Lord Jesus, you came to gather the nations into the peace of the Kingdom, the Kingdom of God. 
Lord, have mercy.      All  : Lord have mercy.

 Cantor : You came in word and sacrament to strengthen us in holiness.
Christ have mercy. All : Christ have mercy.

 Cantor : You will come in glory, you will come in glory, with salvation for your people.
Lord have mercy.   All  : Lord have mercy.


St Andrew Gloria:         

Glory to God in the highest. Peace to his people, peace on earth.
Glory to God in the highest. Peace to his people, peace on earth.

 Lord God, heavenly King, almighty God and Father.
We worship you, give you thanks, praise you for your glory. 

Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father.
Lord God, Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world,

With the Holy Spirit in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
