A SPECIAL COMMEMORATION SERVICE MARKING

THE DEATH OF HER LATE MAJESTY

QUEEN ELIZABETH II

was held on

Thursday the 15th September.

Our first hymn which was a great favourite with Her Majesty was ‘Praise my Soul the King of Heaven’. This was followed by prayers  and then we sang ‘The Lords my Shepherd’ to the Crimmond.

 

This was followed by a reading from Revelation 21

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.  I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.  And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now 

among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.

 

‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

 

We then sang ‘Guide me, O Thou great Redeemer’,

pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but you are mighty;
hold me with your powerful hand.
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
feed me now and evermore,
feed me now and evermore.

 

We had a short talk and then we sang

I vow to thee, my country, all earthly things above,
entire and whole and perfect, the service of my love:
the love that asks no question, the love that stands the test,
that lays upon the altar the dearest and the best;
the love that never falters, the love that pays the price,
the love that makes undaunted the final sacrifice.

 

This was followed by Prayers,  then we sang ‘All people that on earth do dwell’ sung to Vaughn Williams  version Old 100th which has the long introduction and also the long introduction to the final verse and then a great Amen at the end.

All people that on earth do dwell,
sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.
Serve him with joy, his praises tell,
come now before him and rejoice!

After the final Blessing we then sang the National Anthem.
