Prelude: Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier, BWV 731       J.S. Bach

Welcome    The Reverend Canon David Clunie

Opening Hymn:  Sister, Let Me Be Your Servant      Servant Song

Sister, let me be your servant, let me be as Christ to you;
Pray that I may have the grace to let you be my servant too.

We are pilgrims on a journey, fellow travellers on the road;
We are here to help each other walk the mile and bear the load.

I will hold the Christ-light for you in the night-time of your fear;
I will hold my hand out to you, speak the peace you long to hear.

I will weep when you are weeping; when you laugh I’ll laugh with you.
I will share your joy and sorrow till we’ve seen this journey through.

When we sing to God in heaven, we shall find such harmony,
Born of all we’ve known together of Christ’s love and agony.

Brother, let me be your servant, let me be as Christ to you;
Pray that I may have the grace to let you be my servant too.

Collect of the Day:  Almighty God, through the waters of baptism your Son has made us children of light.
May we ever walk in his light and show forth your glory in the world; through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

Psalm 23


Refrain: Surely your goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever, for ever, for ever. Amen

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures and leads me beside still waters.  Refrain

He revives my soul and guides me along right pathways for his name’s sake.  Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil;
for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Refrain

You spread a table before me in the presence of those who trouble me; you have anointed my head with oil, and my cup is running over.
Surely your goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. Refrain

Gospel:  John 4:5-14
So, he came to a Samaritan city called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob's well was there, and Jesus, tired out by his journey, was sitting by the well. It was about noon. A Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."  (His disciples had gone to the city to buy food.)  The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Judean ask a drink of me, a woman of Samaria?" (Judeans do not share things in common with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, "Give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water." The woman said to him, "Sir, you have no bucket, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water?  Are you greater than our ancestor Jacob, who gave us the well, and with his sons and his flocks drank from it?" Jesus said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life."

The Lord's Prayer

Closing Hymn:  Lord of All Hopefulness             Slane

Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy,
whose trust, ever childlike, no cares could destroy:
Be there at our waking, and give us, we pray,
your bliss in our hearts, Lord, at the break of the day.

Lord of all eagerness, Lord of all faith,
whose strong hands were skilled at the plane and the lathe:
Be there at our labours, and give us, we pray,
your strength in our hearts, Lord, at the noon of the day.

Lord of all kindliness, Lord of all grace,
your hands swift to welcome, your arms to embrace:
Be there at our homing, and give us, we pray,
your love in our hearts, Lord, at the eve of the day.

Lord of all gentleness, Lord of all calm,
whose voice is contentment, whose presence is balm:
Be there at our sleeping, and give us, we pray,
your peace in our hearts, Lord, at the end of the day.
