Justin Welby

November 10, 2012

Bishop Justin Welby of Durham has been selected the new Archbishop of Canterbury.
The tune of the following bell ringers’ hymn is that of “Tell out my soul”. This hymn was composed by Peter Baelz, then Dean of Durham, for a service of re-dedication of the cathedral bells in 1980. Its opening verse contains the names of those bells.
I altered the hymn, substituting the third person for the first.–JW

Ring Christ, ring Mary, Benedict and Bede,
With Michael, till Justin’s heart from sin be freed;
Ring Cuthbert, Oswald, Margaret and Hild,
Till, blessed Lord, his heart with joy be filled.

Let bells peal forth the universal fame,
Creator Lord, of Thy mysterious name;
Conscience within, the boundless heavens above,
Disclose to faith the hidden name of Love.

Loudly proclaim with each insistent chime
How Thine eternity redeems Justin’s time;
Past sins forgiv’n, and future hopes restored,
Reveal Thy presence with him, gracious Lord.

Spirit divine, recast his faulty ways,
Make them ring true and echo to Thy praise;
Through every change of circumstance and choice
May he confess Thee with a single voice.

Call him to worship, call him to obey,
Call him to pilgrimage along life’s way;
Rouse him from sleep; renewed in mind and heart,
Call him to love Thee, Lord, since Love Thou art.

John 1:1-3 (NKJV)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

El Olam, God of time and space,

When Joshua battled the five kings of the Amorites–the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon–You made the sun stand still over Gibeon and the moon in the Valley of Aijalon.
Your prophet Amos said that the days were coming when the plowman would overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him who sows seed.

These mysteries are too great for our mortal frames to comprehend. Take pity.

Grant to the nine disciplined bishops the humility of the Word Incarnate, Christ Jesus, who was in the beginning; who is the same yesterday, today, and forever; and yet who submitted to time.

“My time has not yet come.”

Strengthen their hearts as they wait upon You. You are their help. You will not leave them or forsake them. You will not leave them orphaned. Their time is in Your hands.

Grant to the bishops the obedience of the wedding feast servants.

“Whatever He says to you, do it.”

Grant to Peter, Maurice, John, Paul, William, Bruce, Daniel, Edward, and James the same favor Jesus granted to Mary.

“You have kept the good wine until now!”

Amen.


Psalm 23

November 10, 2012

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. (Psalm 23:1)
      Father, thank you for this day’s bread.

He makes me to lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside the still waters. (Psalm 23:2)
      Holy Spirit, thank you for times and places of quietness and rest.

He restores my soul; he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. (Psalm 23:3)
      Jesus, thank you for restoring my soul and leading me in your righteous paths.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)
      LORD, you are my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? You are the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? (See Psalm 27:1)

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. (Psalm 23:5)
      Jesus, thank you for the anointing of your Holy Spirit; thank you that I can come to your table week by week and you feed me with your body and blood.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. (Psalm 23:6)
      Jesus, thank you for following after me and coming between me and all the sins of my past. Thank you for your sanctuary and that I may dwell in your house all the days of mylife.
