P Loving, compassionate God,

C. we come to you, admitting our need, admitting our lack, admitting our brokenness.

We have neglected our responsibilities to you, to our neighbour, to your creation,

and even to ourselves.

Forgive us. Remind us of your love.

We pray in the name of Jesus the Christ, our Saviour.



Hymn (Read or sung) Lift High the Cross ELW #660


Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim

till all the world adore his sacred name.

1 Come, Christians, follow where our captain trod,

our king victorious, Christ, the Son of God. Refrain

2 All newborn servants of the Crucified

bear on their brows the seal of him who died. Refrain

3 O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree,

as thou hast promised, draw us all to thee. Refrain

4 So shall our song of triumph ever be:

praise to the Crucified for victory! Refrain

Apostles' Creed

** God has made us his people through our Baptism into Christ. Living together in trust and hope, we confess our faith.

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit

born of the virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

he descended into dead.*

On the third day he rose again.

he ascended into heaven,.

he is seated at the right hand of the Father.

and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.



Prayer of the Day (Prayer used by permission of Augsburg Fortress)

P. God is with us. The Lord be with you.

C. And also with you.

Let us pray: Teach us, good Lord God, to serve you as you deserve, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to ask for reward, except that of knowing that we do your will, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Hymn of the day: I Love to Tell the Story #661

1 I love to tell the story

of unseen things above,

of Jesus and his glory,

of Jesus and his love.

I love to tell the story,

because I know it's true;

it satisfies my longings

as nothing else would do.


I love to tell the story;

'twill be my theme in glory

to tell the old, old story

of Jesus and his love.

2 I love to tell the story:

how pleasant to repeat

what seems, each time I tell it,

more wonderfully sweet!

I love to tell the story,

for some have never heard

the message of salvation

from God's own holy word. Refrain

3 I love to tell the story,

for those who know it best

seem hungering and thirsting

to hear it like the rest.

And when, in scenes of glory,

I sing the new, new song,

I'll sing the old, old story

that I have loved so long. Refrain

Lord’s Prayer (Prayer used by permission of Augsburg Fortress)

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.



Peace of Christ be with you all.


Hymn: Take My Life ELW #685

(Hymn lyrics printed under OneLicence # 11411292)

1. Take my life that I may be consecrated, Lord, to thee.

Take my moments and my days: let them flow in endless praise.

2. Take my hands and let them move at the impulse of thy love.

Take my feet and let them be swift and beautiful for thee.

3. Take my voice and let me sing always, only, for my King.

Take my lips and let them be filled with messages from thee.

4. Take my silver and my gold: not a mite would I withhold.

Take my intellect and use every power as thou shalt choose.

5. Take my will and make it thine; it shall be no longer mine.

Take my heart it is thine own; it shall be thy royal throne.

6. Take my love; my Lord, I pour at thy feet its treasure store.

Take myself, and I will be ever, only, all for thee.



May almighty God,

The Father who created us to live in love,

The Son (✝) who died and rose to bring us new life,

And the Spirit who sees us through the Other,

bless us all, now and forever. Amen.



Go in peace. Look for Jesus in all those you meet.

Thanks be to God!
