Ascension Day

The Call
Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life :
Such a Way, as gives us breath :
Such a Truth, as ends all strife :
And such a Life, as killeth death.

Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength :
Such a Light, as shows a feast :
Such a Feast, as mends in length :
Such a Strength, as makes his guest.

Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart :
Such a Joy, as none can move :
Such a Love, as none can part :
Such a Heart, as joyes in love.
George Herbert

The Collect
Grant, we beseech thee, Almighty God, that like as we do believe thy only begotton Son our Lord Jesus Christ to have ascended into the heavens; so we may also in heart and mind thither ascend, and with him continually dwell, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen

Lovely music chuck, you reminded me to put the hymn we sang this morning on my blog as it's such a great hymn.

Did you have a service this morning?

Happy May Day too :)

Yes, we did, just a short one. The big one is tonight.
