Order of Service - Ascension






Opening Hymn:  O Worship the King #380 


O worship the King all-glorious above,

O gratefully sing his power and his love:

our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days,

pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.


Your bountiful care, what tongue can recite?

It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;

it streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,

and sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.


O measureless Might, unchangeable Love,

whom angels delight to worship above!

Your ransomed creation, with glory ablaze,

in true adoration shall sing to your praise! 


The Greeting


Alleluia!  Christ is risen.

The Lord is risen indeed.  Alleluia!


May his grace and peace be with you.

May he fill our hearts with joy!


Glory to God


Glory to God in the highest,

And peace to his people on earth.


Lord, God, heavenly king,

Almighty God and Father,

We worship you, we give you thanks,

We praise you for your glory.


Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,

Lord God, Lamb of God,

You take away the sin of the world:

Have mercy on us;

You are seated at the right hand of the Father:

Receive our prayer.


For you alone are the Holy One,

You alone are the Lord,

You alone are the Most High,

Jesus Christ,

With the Holy Spirit,

In the glory of God the Father.  Amen.


The Collect Prayer


Almighty God, your Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule over all things as Lord.  Keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond his peace, and bring the whole of creation to worship at his feet, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever.  Amen.

Apostles Creed


I believe in God,

The Father almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth.


I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit

And born of the Virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

Was crucified, died and was buried.

He descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again.

He ascended into heaven,

And is seated the right hand of the Father.

He will come again to judge the living and the dead.


I believe in the Holy Spirit,

The holy catholic Church,

The communion of the saints,

The forgiveness of sins,

The resurrection of the body,

And the life everlasting.  Amen.


The Prayers of the People


The Lord’s Prayer


As our Saviour taught us, let us pray,


Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial, and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and for ever. Amen.


The Doxology


Glory to God, whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.  Glory to God from generation to generation, in the Church and in Christ

Jesus, forever and ever.  Amen



The Blessing


Closing Hymn:  Yours Be the Glory, Risen, Conquering Son. CP #210  all 3 verses


Thine is the glory, Resurrected One!

Endless is the victr’y now for us begun!

Angels clothed in glory rolled the stone away,

leaving only graveclothes where his body lay.



Thine is the glory, Resurrected One!

Endless is the victr'y now for us begun!


Lo! Jesus meets us. Risen from the tomb, 

lovingly he greets us, scatters fear and gloom.

Let our doubting spirits find a voice to sing:

Christ who died is living; death has lost its sting. [Refrain]


Thine was the suff’ring, mine the endless life.

Sin holds no dominion; love wins over strife.

What then shall I shall I offer? Songs that never cease!

Thou hast won the vict’ry, glorious Prince of Peace! [Refrain]
