I was glad…        

‘Thankfulness’ is the theme for Collective Worship in our primary schools this half-term.

 

Psalm 122 (v1-2)

1 I was glad when they said to me,
   ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’
2 Our feet are standing
   within your gates, O Jerusalem…

 

Generations of Anglican choirs have sung Hubert Parry’s music to add to a church celebration. The anthem was written for the coronation of Edward VII in 1902 and revised for the coronation of George V in 1911..

Prayer  William Shakespeare, 1564-1616

O Lord, that lends me life,

Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.

 

 

Prayer George Herbert, 1593-1633

Thou that hast given so much to me,

Give one thing more, a grateful heart.

See how thy beggar works on thee

        By art.

 

Wherefore I cry, and cry again;

And in no quiet canst thou be,

Till I a thankful heart obtain

        Of thee:

 

Not thankful, when it pleaseth me:

As if thy blessing had spare days:

But such a heart, whose pulse may be

        Thy praise.

 

 

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation    Joachim Neander (1650-1680)
