Morning has broken
like the first morning;
blackbird has spoken
like the first bird.
Praise for the singing,
praise for the morning,
praise for them, springing
fresh from the word.

Sweet the rain’s new fall
sunlit from heaven,
like the first dewfall
on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness
of the wet garden,
sprung from completeness
where his feet pass.

Mine is the sunlight;
mine is the morning
born of one light
Eden saw play.
Praise with elation
praise every morning,
God’s recreation
of the new day.

First Reading   St Paul to the Thessalonians 4: 13-18

2nd Reading   Reflection on Death Gospel    St John 14: 1-6


Prayers of the Faithful


Communion Hymn


You shall cross the barren desert,
but you shall not die of thirst.
You shall wander far in safety
though you do not know the way.
YOU shall speak your words in foreign lands
and all will understand.
You shall see the face of God and live.

Be not afraid. I go before you always.
Come follow Me, and I will give you rest.

If you pass through raging waters in the sea,
you shall not drown.
If you walk amid the burning flames,
you shall not be harmed.
If you stand before the power of hell
and death is at your side,
know that I am with you through it all.


Blessed are your poor, for the kingdom shall be theirs.
Blest are you that weep and mourn,
for one day you shall laugh.
And if wicked men insult and hate you
all because of Me,
blessed, blessed are you!

Family Tributes   Fran Bartlett, Mindy Hindermarsh [Hindmarsh], Chris Dale
