- Motet: Greater Love (John Ireland 1879-1962) text: Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it. Love is strong as death. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree. That we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness.Ye are washed, ye are sanctified,ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus.Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation; That ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his own marvellous light. I beseech you brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies, a living sacrifice, holy,acceptable unto to God, which is your reasonable service.
- Communio: (Gregorian Ps 70:16-18) Domine, memorabor iustitiae tuae solius: Deus, docuisti me a iuventute mea, et usque in senectam et senium, Deus, ne derelinquas me O Lord, be mindful of your justice alone; you have taught me, O God, from my youth; and so, unto old age and grey hairs. O God, forsake me not.
