Opening Hymn

O Worship the King.  Click on "Queen St. 15 m4a" below.

1. O worship the King, all glorious above
O gratefully sing HIs wonderful love
Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days
Paviolioned in splendor, and girded with praise
2. O tell of His might, O sing of His grace
Whose robe is the light and canopy space
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form
And dark is His path on the wings of the storm
4. You alone are the matchless King
To You alone be all majesty
Your glories and wonders, what tongue can recite?
You breathe in the air, You shine in the light

Collect Prayer

Lord of the teasing riddle, whose questions undo our certainty and set us on a different path: give us a heart of passion, a searching mind, gentle strength of body and unseen depths of soul, that we might love you wholly and our neighbour as ourself; through Jesus Christ, the law of grace.  Amen.

Healer of Our Every Ill.  Click on "Queen St. 16.m4a" below to listen.

Healer of our every ill,
light of each tomorrow,
give us peace beyond our fear,
and hope beyond our sorrow.

1 You who know our fears and sadness,
grace us with your peace and gladness;
Spirit of all comfort, fill our hearts. [Refrain]

2 In the pain and joy beholding
how your grace is still unfolding,
give us all your vision, God of love. [Refrain]

3 Give us strength to love each other,
every sister, every brother;
Spirit of all kindness, be our guide. [Refrain]

4 You who know each thought and feeling,
teach us all your way of healing;
Spirit of compassion, fill each heart. [Refrain]

Affirmation of Faith - Hear O Israel

Hear O Israel,

The Lord our God, the Lord is One.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.  

This is the first and the great commandment.   The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.  

There is no commandment greater than these.
