Collect of the Day

God of all consolation,
your Son comforted the grieving sisters, Martha and Mary,
for your breath alone brings life to dry bones and weary souls.
Pour your Spirit upon us,
so that we may face despair and death
with the hope of the resurrection and faith in the One
who called Lazarus forth from the grave. Amen.

The Communion


Anthem: Geistliches Lied by Johannes Brahms 

Laß dich nur nichts nicht dauren mit Trauren, 

sei stille, wie Gott es fügt, 

so sei vergnügt mein Wille! 


Was willst du heute sorgen auf morgen? 

Der Eine steht allem für,  

der gibt auch dir das Deine. 


Sei nur in allem Handel ohn Wandel,  

steh feste, was Gott beschleußt,  

das ist und heißt das Beste. 


Do not be sorrowful or regretful; 

Be calm, as God has ordained,  

and thus my will shall be content.  


What do you want to worry about from day to day?  

There is One who stands above all  

who gives you, too, what is yours.  


Only be steadfast in all you do,  

stand firm; what God has decided,  

that is and must be the best.  



Prayer after Communion


Compassionate God,
you have fed us with the bread of heaven.
Sustain us in our Lenten pilgrimage;
may our fasting be hunger for justice;
our alms, a making of peace;
and our prayer, the song of grateful hearts;
through Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord. Amen.
