“I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture” (Jn 10:9).

I have risen. I am with you once more.
O God, you laid your hand upon me.
How marvellous your wisdom, Alleluia.

You search me, Lord, and know me.
Wherever I sit or stand, you read my inmost thoughts.
Whenever I walk or rest you k now where I have been.

I have risen. I am with you once more.
O God, you laid your hand upon me.
How marvellous your wisdom, Alleluia.

Alternative opening hymn:

Thine be the glory, risen conquering Son,
endless is the victory, thou o’er death hast won.
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
kept the folded grave clothes, where Thy body lay.
Thine be the glory . . . . .

Lo, Jesus meets, risen from the tomb;
lovingly He greets us, scatters fear and gloom.
Let the church with gladness, hymns of triumph sing,
for her Lord is living, death hath lost its sting.
Thine be the glory . . . . .

St Andrew Gloria: Glory to God in the highest, peace to his people, peace on earth.

1st Reading: Acts 2: 14. 36-41

Psalm 22: His goodness shall follow me always to the end of my days.

The Lord is my shepherd: there is nothing I shall want
Fresh and green are the pastures where he gives me repose.
Near restful waters he leads me to revive my drooping spirits. His goodness . . . . . . .

In truth he guides me along the right path,
If I should walk in the valley of darkness no evil would I fear.
You are there with your crook and staff, with these you give me comfort. His goodness …..

You have prepared a banquet for me in the sight of my foes.
My head you have anointed with oil, my cup is overflowing. His goodness …..

Goodness and kindness shall surely follow me all the days of my life.
In the Lord’s own house shall I dwell for ever, forever and ever. His goodness …

2nd Reading: 1 Peter 2:20-25

Gospel acclamation: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
Christ our Passover has been sacrificed. Let us celebrate. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Gospel: St John 10:1-10

Preparation of Gifts:

Now the green blade riseth from the buried grain,
wheat that in the dark earth many days hath lain;
Love lives again, that with the dead has been;
love is come again like wheat that springth green

In the grave they laid him, love whom men had slain,
thinking that never he would wake again,
laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen:
love is come again like wheat that springth green

Forth he came at Easter, like the risen grain,
he that for three days in the grave had lain;
quick from the dead my risen Lord is seen;
love is come again like wheat that springth green

MacMillan Sanctus : Holy, holy, holy Lord
Memorial:When we eat
Bellahouston Agnus Dei . . .

Communion: Lord, I am not worthy . . . . . .

O Godhead hid, devoutly I adore thee,
who truly art within the forms before me;
to thee my heart I bow with bended knee,
as failing quite in contemplating thee.

Sight, touch, and taste in thee are each deceived,
the ear alone most safely is believed:
I believe all the Son of God has spoken;
than truth’s own word there is no truer token.

God only on the cross lay hid from view;
but here lies hid at once the manhood too:
and I, in both professing my belief,
make the same prayer as the repentant thief.
