Confession

Blessed be the holy Trinity, one God, 

who forgives all our sin, whose mercy endures forever.  

Amen.

 Seeking reconciliation with God and our neighbor,

 let us remember the gift of baptism and confess our sin.

 

Silence

 

God of mercy,

we confess that we have sinned against you,

against one another,

and against the earth 

entrusted to our care.

We are worried and distracted 

by many things,

and we fail to love you 

above all else.

We store up treasures 

for ourselves and turn away 

from our neighbors in need. 

Forgive us, that we may live in 

the freedom of your Son,

Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

 

Absolution

Greeting

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God,

and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

And also with you. 

Cornerstone

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus’ love and righteousness

I dare not trust the sweetest frame

But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus’ love and righteousness

I dare not trust the sweetest frame

But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

Christ alone, cornerstone

Weak made strong in the Saviour’s love

Through the storm, He is Lord

Lord of all.

When darkness seems to hide His face

I rest on His unchanging grace.

In every high and stormy gale

My anchor holds within the veil

My anchor holds within the veil.

Christ alone cornerstone

Weak made strong in the Saviour’s love

Through the storm, He is Lord

Lord of all

When He shall come with trumpet sound

Oh may I then in Him be found

Dressed in His righteousness alone

Faultless stand before the throne.

Christ alone cornerstone

Weak made strong in the Saviour’s love

Through the storm,  He is Lord

Lord of all.

Be Thou My Vision

Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;

naught be all else to me, save that thou art:

thou my best thought both by day and by night,

waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;

I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord.

Thou my soul’s shelter, and thou my high tower,

raise thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor vain, empty praise,

thou mine inheritance, now and always:

thou and thou only, the first in my heart,

great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.

Light of my soul, after victory won,

may I reach heaven’s joys, O heaven’s Sun!

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,

still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

Prayer of the Day

Almighty God, we thank you for planting in us the seed of your word. By your Holy Spirit help us to receive it with joy, live according to it, and grow in faith and hope and love, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Word

Reading: Isaiah 55:10-13

For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not

return there until they have watered the earth, making it bring forth 

and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall 

my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me 

empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and succeed in 

the thing for which I sent it. For you shall go out in joy, and be led 

back in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall burst into 

song, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of 

the thorn shall come up the cypress; instead of the brier shall come 

up the myrtle; and it shall be to the Lord for a memorial, for an 

everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

 The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

Gospel Acclamation

The Gospel according to…

Glory to you, O Lord!

 

Gospel: Matthew 13: 1-9, 18-23

That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea. Such great crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat there, while the whole crowd stood on the beach. And he told them many things in parables, saying: “Listen! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell on the path, and the birds came and ate them up. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and they sprang up quickly, since they had no depth of soil. But when the sun rose, they were scorched; and since they had no root, they withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Let anyone with ears listen!” “Hear then the parable of the sower. When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what is sown in the heart; this is what was sown on the path. As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet such a person has no root, but endures only for a while, and when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, that person immediately falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the lure of wealth choke the word, and it yields nothing. But as for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

 Praise to you, O Christ.

Words of Institution

In the night in which he was betrayed,

Our Lord Jesus took bread,

and gave thanks; broke it,

and gave it to his disciples,

saying: Take and eat;

this is my body, given for you.

Do this in remembrance of me.

Again, after supper, he took the cup,

gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink,

saying: This cup

is the new covenant in my blood, 

shed for you and for all people

for the forgiveness of sin.

Do this in remembrance of me.

 

Lord’s Prayer

 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 forever.

Amen.

Sing the Wondrous Love Of Jesus

Sing the wondrous love of Jesus
Sing His mercy and His grace
In the mansions bright and blessed
He’ll prepare for us a place

When we all get to heaven
What a day of rejoicing that will be
When we all see Jesus
We’ll sing and shout the victory

While we walk the pilgrim pathway
Clouds will overspread the sky
But when trav’ling days are over
Not a shadow not a sigh

When we all get to heaven
What a day of rejoicing that will be
When we all see Jesus
We’ll sing and shout the victory

Let us then be true and faithful
Trusting serving ev’ry day
Just one glimpse of Him in glory
Will the toils of life repay

When we all get to heaven
What a day of rejoicing that will be
When we all see Jesus
We’ll sing and shout the victory

Onward to the prize before us
Soon His beauty we’ll behold
Soon the pearly gates will open
We shall tread the streets of gold

When we all get to heaven
What a day of rejoicing that will be
When we all see Jesus
We’ll sing and shout the victory.
