A Canticle

Which may be said here or between the readings

Saviour of the World

1 Jesus, Saviour of the world,
come to us in your mercy:
we look to you to save and help us.

2 By your cross and your life laid down
you set your people free:
we look to you to save and help us.

3 When they were ready to perish you saved your disciples:
we look to you to come to our help.

4 In the greatness of your mercy, loose us from our chains,
forgive the sins of all your people.

5? Make yourself known as our Saviour and mighty Deliverer;
save and help us that we may praise you.

6 Come now and dwell with us Lord Christ Jesus:
hear our prayer and be with us always.

7 And when you come in your glory:
make us to be one with you
and to share the life of your kingdom. Amen.

The Gospel Canticle

Benedictus

1 Blessèd be the Lord the God of Israel,
who has come to his people and set them free.

2 The Lord has raised up for us a mighty saviour,
born of the house of his servant David.

3 Through the holy prophets God promised of old
to save us from our enemies,
from the hands of those who hate us,

4 to show mercy to our forebears,
and to remember his holy covenant.

5 This was the oath God swore to our father Abraham:
to set us free from the hand of our enemies.

6 Free to worship him without fear,
holy and righteous before him all the days of our life.

7 And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High,
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

8 To give his people knowledge of salvation
by the forgiveness of all their sins.

9 In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us.

10 To shine on those who dwell in darkness
and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
As it was in the beginning is now and shall be forever. Amen

Almighty God,
who called your Church to bear witness
that you were in Christ reconciling the world to yourself:

and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
