Words for Benediction Hymns:
(1)
O saving Victim Opening Wide
The gate of heaven to man below;
Our foes press hard on every side;
Thine aid supply; thy strength Bestow

All Praise and thanks to thee ascend
For evermore, blest One in Three
O grant us life that shall not end
In our true native land with thee. Amen.

(2)
Therefore we before him bending,
this great Sacrament revere;
types and shadows have their ending,
for the newer rite is here;
faith, our outwards sense befriending
makes our inward vision clear.

Glory let us give, and blessing
to the Father and the Son,
honour might and praise addressing,
while eternal ages run;
ever too His love confessing,
who from both with both is One. Amen.

How fantastic to receive theae videos this morning from some of the churches young people telling Fr Nathan and myself some of the things that they have been doing during the lockdown. There was music, dancing, and prayers baking amongst their heart warming messages. Such a beautiful surprise which brought a tear to my eye as it made me realise how much I miss them. I am sure Fr Nathan won't mind me saying that we can't wait to see you all again when we are allowed to meet again. Thank you again and may God bless you all. Xxxx❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ ...

A short 5 minute meditation on 'Renewal' as part of Churches Together in Stevenage's Prayer for Thy Kingdom Come.
Please do pray along, or just enjoy the birdsong.
(P.S. Despite how fake the wood around me looks, this is a genuine bit of location filming!)

Hello everybody, I hope you are all keeping safe and well. I am looking forward to presiding at the service tomorrow morning. I am also very excited for next weeks service at Pentecost as there may be a bit of a surprise for you all so do tune in for this wonderful church festival.
Anyway, we concentrate on tomorrow's service and below you will find the words to our hymn Praise my soul the King of heaven.

Praise my soul the King of heaven,
To his feet thy tribute bring bring;
ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
who like me his praise should sing?
Praise him! Praise him!
Praise him! Praise him!
Praise the everlasting King!

Praise him for his grace and favour
to our fathers in distress;
praise him still the same as ever,
slow to chide and swift to bless.
Praise him! Praise him!
Praise him! Praise him!
Glorious in his faithfulness!

Father-like he tends and spares us;
well our feeble frame he knows;
in his hands he gently bears us,
rescues us from all our foes.
Praise him! Praise him!
Praise him! Praise him!
Widely as his mercy flows!

Angels, help us to adore him;
ye behold him face to face;
sun and moon bow down before him,
dwellers all in time and space.
Praise him! Praise him!
Praise him! Praise him!
Praise with us the God of grace!
