  • Hymn

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 Name Him, brothers, name Him,
 with love strong as death,
 but with awe and wonder,
 and with bated breath;
 He is God the Saviour,
 He is Christ the Lord,
 ever to be worshipped,
 trusted, and adored.

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.

5 Brothers, this Lord Jesus
 shall return again
 with His Father’s glory,
 with His angel train;
 for all wreaths of empire
 meet upon His brow,
 and our hearts confess Him
 King of glory now.

Isaiah 53:1-12
1 ¶  Who has believed what they heard from us?
   And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
2  For he grew up before him like a young plant,
         and like a root out of dry ground;
   he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
         and no beauty that we should desire him.
3  He was despised and rejected by men;
         a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
   and as one from whom men hide their faces
         he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 ¶  Surely he has borne our griefs
         and carried our sorrows;
   yet we esteemed him stricken,
         smitten by God, and afflicted.
5  But he was wounded for our transgressions;
         he was crushed for our iniquities;
   upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
         and with his stripes we are healed.
6  All we like sheep have gone astray;
         we have turned every one to his own way;
   and the LORD has laid on him
         the iniquity of us all.
7  He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
         yet he opened not his mouth;
   like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
         and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
         so he opened not his mouth.
8  By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
         and as for his generation, who considered
   that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
         stricken for the transgression of my people?
9  And they made his grave with the wicked
         and with a rich man in his death,
   although he had done no violence,
         and there was no deceit in his mouth.
10 ¶  Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him;
         he has put him to grief;
   when his soul makes an offering for sin,
         he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
   the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
11  Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied;
   by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant,
         make many to be accounted righteous,
         and he shall bear their iniquities.
12  Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,
         and he shall divide the spoil with the strong,
   because he poured out his soul to death
         and was numbered with the transgressors;
   yet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors.

  • Hymn

All praise to Him, the God of light
Who formed the mountains by His might
All praise to Him Who names the stars
That sing His fame in skies afar
All praise to Him Who reigns in love
Who guides the galaxies above
Yet bends to hear our every prayer
With sovereign pow’r and tender care

All praise to Him whose love is seen
In Christ the Son, the Servant King
Who left behind His glorious throne
To pay the ransom for His own
All praise to Him Who humbly came
To bear our sorrow, sin, and shame
Who lived to die, Who died to rise
The all-sufficient sacrifice

All praise to Him whose pow’r imparts
The love of God within our hearts
The Spirit of all truth and peace
The fount of joy and holiness
To Father, Son, and Spirit now
Our souls we lift, our wills we bow
To You, the triune God, we raise
With loving hearts our song of praise

  • Reading N°2

Philippians 2:1-11

1  So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy,
2  complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
3  Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
4  Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
5  Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,
6  who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,
7  but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.
8  And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
9  Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,
10  so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11  and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

  • Hymn

Mighty God, while angels bless you,
may a mortal praise your name?
Lord of men, as well as angels,
you are every creature’s theme.
Lord of every land and nation,
Ancient of eternal days,
sounded through the wide creation
be your just and lawful praise.

2. For the grandeur of your nature,
grand beyond a seraph’s thought;
for created works of power,
works with skill and kindness wrought;
for your providence, that governs
all your empire’s wide domain,
speeds an angel, guides a sparrow,
blessed be your gentle reign.

3. But your rich, your free redemption,
shining through the ages long—
thought is poor, and poor expression,
who dare sing that awesome song?
Brightness of the Father’s glory,
shall your praise unuttered be?
Break, my tongue, such guilty silence,
sing the Lord who died for me!

4. From the highest throne in glory,
to the cross of deepest woe,
all to ransom guilty captives,
flow, my praise, for ever flow!
Go, return, immortal Saviour,
yours the victory, yours alone;
soon return and reign for ever,
claim the kingdom, take your throne!

  • Prayer

  • Hymn

THOU who wast rich beyond all splendour,
all for love’s sake becamest poor;
thrones for a manger didst surrender,
sapphire-paved courts for stable floor.
Thou who wast rich beyond all splendour,
all for love’s sake becamest poor.

2 Thou who art God beyond all praising,
all for love’s sake becamest man;
stooping so low, but sinners raising
heavenwards by Thine eternal plan.
Thou who art God beyond all praising,
all for love’s sake becamest man.

3 Thou who art love beyond all telling,
Saviour and King, we worship Thee.
Immanuel, within us dwelling,
make us what Thou wouldst have us be.
Thou who art love beyond all telling,
Saviour and King, we worship Thee.


  • Sermon

  • Hymn

MAY the mind of Christ my Saviour
live in me from day to day,
by His love and power controlling
all I do and say.

2 May the Word of God dwell richly
in my heart from hour to hour,
so that all may see I triumph
only through His power.

3 May the peace of God my Father
rule my life in everything,
that I may be calm to comfort
sick and sorrowing.

4 May the love of Jesus fill me
as the waters fill the sea;
Him exalting, self abasing,
this is victory.

5 May I run the race before me,
strong and brave to face the foe,
looking only unto Jesus
as I onward go.

6 May his beauty rest upon me
as I seek the lost to win,
and may they forget the channel,
seeing only Him.
