Hymn: VU 121 Tree of Life
(v. 1, 2, 4, 5 & 5th Sunday in Lent)

Tree of Life and awesome mystery,
in your death we are reborn,
though you die in all of history,
still you rise with every morn,
still you rise with every morn.

Seed that dies to rise in glory,
may we see ourselves in you,
if we learn to live your story
we may die to rise anew,
we may die to rise anew.

Gentle Jesus, mighty Spirit,
come inflame our hearts anew,
we may all your joy inherit
if we bear the cross with you,
if we bear the cross with you.

Christ, you lead and we shall follow,
stumbling though our steps may be,
one with you in joy and sorrow,
we the river, you the sea,
we the river, you the sea.

God of all our fear and sorrow,
God who lives beyond our death;
hold us close through each tomorrow,
love as near as every breath,
love as near as every breath.

Words and music: Marty Haugen.


Listen to the word that God has spoken,
listen to the One who is close at hand,
listen to the voice that began creation;
listen even if you don’t understand!

Hebrew Scripture Isaiah 43: 16-21

Psalm 126 VU 850

Refrain 2: We praise the One who gave the growth, with voices full and strong.
When God brought Zion's captives home, it seemed to us like a dream.
But then our mouths were full of laughter, and our tongues uttered shouts of joy.
Then they said among the nations: 'God has done great things for them.’
Truly God has done great things for us, and therefore we rejoice.
R2: We praise the One who gave the growth, with voices full and strong.
Restore our fortunes, O God, as streams refresh the Negev.
Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy.
Those who go out weeping, carrying seed for sowing,
shall come home with songs of joy, bringing in their sheaves.
R2: We praise the One who gave the growth, with voices full and strong.

Refrain 2 Words and music: Walker’s Southern Harmony. Harmony: Erik Routley.

Epistle: Philippians 3:4b-14

HYMN: VU 210 You, Lord, Are Both Lamb and Shepherd

You, Lord, are both lamb and shepherd.
You, Lord, are both prince and slave.
You, peacemaker and sword bringer
of the way you took and gave.
You the everlasting instant,
you, whom we both scorn and crave.

Clothed in light upon the mountain,
stripped of might upon the cross,
shining in eternal glory,
beggared by a soldier’s toss.
You, the everlasting instant,
you who are both gift and cost.

You, who walk each day beside us,
sit in power at God’s side.
You, who preach a way that’s narrow,
have a love that reaches wide.
You the everlasting instant;
you, who are our pilgrim guide.

Worthy is our earthly Jesus!
Worthy is our cosmic Christ!
Worthy your defeat and victory.
Worthy still your peace and strife
You the everlasting instant;
you, who are our death and life.

Words: Sylvia Dunstan; Music: John Van Maanen

One: The Lord be with you
All: And also with you
One: The Gospel of Jesus Christ according to John.
All: Glory to you Lord Jesus Christ

Gospel: John 12: 1-8

One: This is the Gospel of Christ
All: Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

Offertory Hymn: VU 506 Take My Life and Let it Be

Take my life, and let it be
consecrated, all for thee;
take my moments and my days;
let them flow in ceaseless praise.

Take my hands, and let them move
at the impulse of thy love;
take my feet, and let them be
swift and purposeful for thee.

Take my lips, and let them be
filled with messages from thee;
take my intellect, and use
every power as thou shalt choose.

Take my will, and make it thine;
it shall be no longer mine;
take my heart, it is thine own;
it shall be thy royal throne.

Take my love; and I will pour
at thy feet its treasure store;
take myself, and I will be
ever, only, all for thee.

Words: Frances Ridley Havergal; Music: unknown

Response: VU 581 v2 When We Are Living
Through all our living, we our fruits must give.
Good works of service are for offering.
When we are giving, or when receiving,
we belong to God; we belong to God.

English translation v. 2 George Lockwood 1987. Music: harmony Carlton R. Young

Prayer over the gifts
(BAS p.295 with edit 2022 cmuise)

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Hymn: VU 642 Be Thou My Vision
(v. 1, 2, 4, 5)

Be thou my vision, O joy of my heart;
naught be all else to me save that thou art,
thou my best thought, by day or by night,
waking or sleeping thy presence my light.

Be thou my wisdom, my calm in all strife;
I ever with thee, and thou in my life;
thou loving parent, thy child may I be,
thou in me dwelling, and I one with thee.

Riches I heed not, nor vain empty praise,
thou mine inheritance, now and always;
thou and thou only, the first in my heart,
great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.

Great God of heaven, after victory won,
may I reach heaven's joys, O bright heaven's sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O ruler of all.

Words: Irish; trans. Mary Elizabeth Byrne; vers. Eleanor H. Hull, alt. Music: Irish traditional melody.

The Doxology:

Glory to God,
whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. Glory to God from generation to generation, in the Church and in Christ Jesus, for ever and ever.


Carry out into the world the love of God in Christ.
Loved, forgiven and redeemed, we go forth!
Amen. Gilakas’la.

Three-fold Amen!
