HYMN 168 At the Name of Jesus

1 At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow,
every tongue confess him King of glory now.
'Tis the Father's pleasure we should call him Lord,
who from the beginning was the mighty Word.

2 Humbled for a season, to receive a name
from the lips of sinners unto whom he came,
faithfully he bore it spotless to the last,
brought it back victorious, when from death he passed.

3 Bore it up triumphant with its human light,
Through all ranks of creatures to the central height,
To the throne of God-head, to the Father’s breast;
Filled it with the glory of that perfect rest.

4 In your hearts enthrone him; there let him subdue
all that is not holy, all that is not true.
Crown him as your Captain in temptation's hour:
let his will enfold you in its light and power.

WORDS: Caroline M. Noel, 1870 MUSIC: Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1925


God spoke from the mountain and said: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; you shall have no other gods before me.”
Almighty God, write your laws upon our hearts.

“You shall not make for yourself an idol. You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.”

Almighty God, write your laws upon our hearts.

“Honor your father and your mother. You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness. You shall not covet...anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

Almighty God, write your laws upon our hearts.

Confession and Pardon
My sisters and brothers, Christ shows us his love by becoming a humble servant. Let us draw near to God and confess our sin in the truth of God’s Spirit.

A brief silence for individual confession.

Most merciful God, we your Church confess that often our spirit has not been that of Christ. Where we have failed to love one another as he loves us, where we have pledged loyalty to him with our lips and then betrayed, deserted, or denied him, forgive us, we pray; and by your Spirit make us faithful in every time of trial; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ. But Christ suffered and died for us, was raised from the dead and ascended on high for us, and continues to intercede for us. Believe the Good News: in the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven!

In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven! Glory to God. Amen


Have mercy on me, O God,
   according to your steadfast love;

according to your abundant mercy
   blot out my transgressions.

Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
   and cleanse me from my sin!

For I know my transgressions,
   and my sin is ever before me.

Against you, you only, have I sinned,
   and done that which is evil in your sight,

so that you are justified in your sentence
   and blameless in your judgement.

Behold, I was born into iniquity,
   and I have been sinful since my mother conceived me.

Behold, you desire truth in the inward being;
   therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
   wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Make me hear with joy and gladness;
   let the bones which you have broken rejoice.

Hide your face from my sins,
   and blot out all my iniquities.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
   and put a new and right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence,
   and take not your holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
   and sustain in me a willing spirit.

Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
   and sinners will return to you.

Deliver me from death, O God, God of my salvation,
   and my tongue will sing aloud of your deliverance.

O Lord, open my lips,
   and my mouth shall show forth your praise.

For you have no delight in sacrifice;
were I were to give a burnt-offering, you would not be pleased.

The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit;
   a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen.

Please stand for the gospel of John 13: 1-17 Jesus washes the disciples’ 


HYMN 432 “Jesu, Jesu”

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.

1 Kneels at the feet of his friends,
silently washes their feet,
Master who acts as a slave to them.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.

2 Neighbors are rich and poor,
neighbors are black and white,
neighbors are near and far away.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.

3 These are the ones we should serve,
these are the ones we should love;
all these are neighbors to us and you.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.

4 Loving puts us on our knees,
serving as though we are slaves,
this is the way we should live with you.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.

5 Kneel at the feet of our friends, 
silently washing their feet,
this is the way we should live with you.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.

Hymn of Preparation 290 Go to Dark Gethsemane

1 Go to dark Gethsemane,
Ye that feel the tempter's power;
Your Redeemer's conflict see;
Watch with Him one bitter hour;
Turn not from His griefs away;
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.

2 See him at the judgment hall;
Beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned;
O the worm-wood and the gall!
O the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
Learn of Christ to bear the cross.

3 Calvary's mournful mountain climb;
There, adoring at His feet,
Mark that miracle of time,
God's own sacrifice complete.
"It is finished!" Hear him cry;
Learn of Jesus Christ to die.

4 Early hasten to the tomb
Where they laid his breathless clay;
All is solitude and gloom.
Who hath taken Him away?
Christ is risen! He meets our eyes:
Savior, teach us so to rise.

WORDS: James Montgomery, 1820, 1825 alt. MUSIC: Richard Redhead, 1853


The Lord be with you. And also with you.
Lift up your hearts. We lift them up to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give our thanks and praise.

It is right, and a good and joyful thing,
always and everywhere to give thanks to you,
Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
From the earth you bring forth bread and create the fruit of the vine.
You formed us in your image, delivered us from captivity,
and made covenant to be our sovereign God.
You fed us manna in the wilderness,
and gave us grapes as evidence of the promised land.

And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven
we praise your name and join their unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Holy are you, and blessed is your Son Jesus Christ.
When we turned aside from your way and abused your gifts,
you gave us in him your crowning gift.
Emptying himself that our joy might be full,
he fed the hungry, healed the sick,
ate with scorned and forgotten, washed his disciples’ feet,
and gave a holy meal as a pledge of his abiding presence.
By the baptism of his suffering, death, and resurrection
you gave birth to your Church,
delivered us from slavery to sin and death,
and made with us a new covenant by water and the Spirit.

On the night in which he gave himself up for us, he took bread,
gave thanks to you, broke the bread, gave it to his disciples, and said:
"Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you.
Do this in remembrance of me."

When the supper was over he took the cup,
gave thanks to you, gave it to his disciples, and said:
"Drink from this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant,
poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me."

And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ,
we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving
as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ's offering for us,
as we proclaim the mystery of faith.

Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.

Pour out your Holy Spirit on us gathered here,
and on these gifts of bread and wine.
Make them be for us the body and blood of Christ,
that we may be for the world the body of Christ, redeemed by his blood.

By your Spirit make us one with Christ,
one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world,
until Christ comes in final victory, and we feast at his heavenly banquet.

Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church, all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father, now and for ever. Amen.

HYMN OF SENDING FORTH 452 “My Faith Looks Up to Thee”

1 My faith looks up to thee, thou Lamb of Calvary, 
Savior divine!
Now hear me while I pray, take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day be wholly thine!

2 May thy rich grace impart strength to my fainting heart, 
my zeal inspire!
As thou hast died for me, O may my love to thee
pure, warm, and changeless be, a living fire!

3 While life's dark maze I tread, and griefs around me spread,
be thou my guide;
bid darkness turn to day, wipe sorrow's tears away,
nor let me ever stray from thee aside.

4 When ends life's transient dream, when death's cold, sullen stream
shall o'er me roll;
blest Savior, then, in love, fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above, a ransomed soul!
