Processional Hymn:  All Glory Laud And Honour


All glory, laud and honour

to thee, Redeemer, King,

to whom the lips of children

made sweet hosannas ring.


1.Thou art the King of Israel, thou David’s royal Son,

Who in the Lord’s name comest, the King and blessed one.


2.The company of angels are praising thee on high,

And we with all creation in chorus make reply.


3.The people of the Hebrews with palms before thee went;

Our praise and prayer and anthems before thee we present.


4.To thee before thy Passion they sang their hymns of praise;

To thee now high exalted our melody we raise.


5.Thou didst accept their praises; accept the prayers we bring,

Who in all good delightest, thou good and gracious King.

We Listen To God’s Word

The Passion Gospel according to Mark:

(This is read in different voices and the congregation follows along on the sheets, joining in where the part is marked “All”.

We are seated for the first part of the story, and we stand at the point indicated by the Narrator.  Please leave these reading sheets in the pews at the end of the service.)



We Respond to God’s Word                     

The Prayers of the People:

Leader:  Our Lord comes to us humbly, riding a donkey and

proclaiming a message of peace.

People:  We pray that Christians may hear and share the word of God as true disci­ples.

Leader:  In our Parish we pray today for the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our Bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, for all the clergy and people. 

People:  We pray that all the ends of the earth may receive and welcome the words of the king of peace.

Leader:  We pray that all leaders, of church and of state, prefer humble service to empty power.

People:  We pray that we who hope to greet Jesus when he comes again will be ready and joyful.

Leader:  Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence). We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  For all who have followed Jesus in lives of faith.

People:  We pray that those who see the cross starkly revealed in their lives draw strength from the name above every other name.

Leader:  God our Creator, you show your sons and daughters the way to freedom through gentle obedience of your Son Jesus Christ.

People:  Grant our petitions as we seek to follow him.  We pray in his name, Christ the Lord.  Amen.

The Communion

Communion Hymn: Amazing Love


1. My Lord, what love is this

That pays so dearly

That I, the guilty one

May go free!



Amazing love, O what sacrifice

The Son of God given for me

My debt he pays, and my death he dies

That I might live, that I might live

(Last time only) That I might live!


2.And so they watched him die

Despised, rejected

But oh, the blood he shed

Flowed for me!


3.And now, this love of Christ

Shall flow like rivers

Come wash your guilt away

Live again!
