Call to Worship

The days ahead are dark and full of foreboding.
We watch as Jesus journeys to the cross.
There is no way to change what is to come.
Yet death has not the final word

"And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to
Let us bear witness to God's new life
moving within and among us

Opening Prayer

Psalm 22

1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken | me,
and are so far from my cry, and from the words
of my com | plaint?
2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you do not | hear;
in the night season also, but I find no | rest.
3 But you remain | holy,
enthroned upon the praises of | Israel.
4 Our fathers hoped in | you;
they trusted in you, and you delivered | them.
5 They called upon you, and were de | livered;
they put their trust in you, and were not con | founded.
6 But as for me, I am a worm, and no | man,
scorned by all, and the outcast of the | people.

14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of | joint;
my heart also in the midst of my body is like melting | wax.
15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue
cleaves to my | gums,
and you bring me into the dust of | death.

16 For many dogs have come about me, and the council of the wicked lays siege a | gainst me.
17 They pierced my hands and my feet; I can count all my | bones;
they stand staring and looking u | pon me.
18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots for my | clothing.

19 But be not far from me, O Lord. You are my succor; hasten to | help me.
20 Deliver my soul from the sword, my life from the power of the | dog.
21 Save me from the lion’s | mouth,
and my soul in misery from among the horns of wild | oxen.

22 I will declare your Name to my | brethren;
in the midst of the congregation I will | praise you.
23 O praise the Lord, you that | fear him;
magnify him, all you seed of Jacob, and fear him, all
you seed of | Israel.

24 For he has not despised nor abhorred the low estate
of the | poor;
he has not hidden his face from him, but when he called
unto him, he | heard him.
25 My praise is of you in the great congre | gation;
my vows will I perform in the sight of those who | fear him.

26 The poor shall eat and be | satisfied; *
those who seek after the Lord shall praise him; may your
hearts live for | ever.
27 All the ends of the world shall remember, and be turned
unto the | Lord,
and all the families of the nations shall worship before | him.

28 For the kingdom is the Lord’s, and he is the Governor among the | peoples.
29 All those who sleep in the earth, how shall they worship | him?
All those who go down into the | dust,
how shall they kneel before him?

30 But my life shall be preserved in his sight, and my children
shall worship | him;
they shall tell of the Lord to the generations to | come;
31 And to a people yet unborn shall they declare
his | righteousness,
that he has brought it to | pass.

Glory be to the | Father,
and to the Son, and to the Holy | Spirit;
As it was in the be | ginning,
is now, and ever shall be, ’ world without end. A | men.

The Servant King

© 1983 | Graham Kendrick

From heav'n you came helpless babe
Enter'd our world your glory veil'd
Not to be served but to serve
And give your life that we might live

   This is our God the Servant King
   He calls us now to follow him
   To bring our lives as a daily offering
   Of worship to the Servant King

So let us learn how to serve
And in our lives enthrone him
Each other's needs to prefer
For it is Christ we're serving


Claudia Ho

Thank you for bearing witness to the work of God in and through and for you. We bless you in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:
The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord make his face shine upon you
The Lord turn towards you and give you peace

Bind us together in holy love
Come with your peace, with your invitation
Bind us together in holy love

Prayers of the People

Unless a Seed

© 2015 林婉容 小羊詩歌版權所有 | English translation by Steven Ngai

yí lì mài zi tā ruò bú luò zài dì lǐ sǐ le
一 粒 麦 子 它 若 不 落 在 地 里 死 了
bú lùn guò le duō shǎo shí hou tā réng jiù shì tā zì jǐ
不 论 过 了 多 少 时 候 它 仍 旧 是 它 自 己
tā ruò yuàn yì ràng zì jǐ bèi yǎn mái bèi yòng jìn
它 若 愿 意 让 自 己 被 掩 埋 被 用 尽
jiù bì jié chū xǔ duō zǐ lì jīng lì shēng mìng de qí jì
就 必 结 出 许 多 子 粒 经 历 生 命 的 奇 迹

Unless a seed consents to fall into the field,
Though all time can pass in waiting, the seed remains alone
But if it consents to die, give up its life, and yield
Then new life is created, soon a harvest is grown

zhǔ wǒ yuàn yì
主 我 愿 意
zhǔ wǒ yuàn yì
主 我 愿 意
ràng zì jǐ xiàng zhǒng zi luò zài dì lǐ
让 自 己 像 种 子 落 在 地 里
shī sàng shēng mìng bì fǎn dé shēng mìng
失 丧 生 命 必 反 得 生 命
zhǔ wǒ yuàn yì zhǔ wǒ yuàn yì
主 我 愿 意 主 我 愿 意
fàng xià zì yǐ wéi yīng dé de quán lì
放 下 自 以 为 应 得 的 权 利
zài wǒ shēn shàng chéng jiù nǐ zhǐ yì
在 我 身 上 成 就 你 旨 意

It's my desire, Lord, I desire
To be a seed that falls into the field
Giving up my life to live anew
It’s my desire, Lord, I desire
All of my rights and my pride I will yield
To obey your word and follow you.

hū zhào rú cǐ chóng gāo zhǒng zi hé děng miáo xiǎo
呼 召 如 此 崇 高 种 子 何 等 渺 小
dìng jīng biāo gǎn zhí pǎo bì jiàn shén de róng yào
定 睛 标 杆 直 跑 必 见 神 的 荣 耀
Lord, as is your calling, all of me I’m giving
Like a seed I’m falling, for your glory living

Scripture | John 12:20-28 (NRSVCE)

20 Now among those who went up to worship at the festival were
some Greeks.
21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said
to him, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.”
22 Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and
told Jesus.
23 Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to
be glorified.
24 Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth
and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much
25 Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in
this world will keep it for eternal life.
26 Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my
servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor.
27 “Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say—‘Father, save me
from this hour’? No, it is for this reason that I have come to this
28 Father, glorify your name.” Then a voice came from heaven, “I have
glorified it, and I will glorify it again.”

I Cannot Tell

© Public Domain | William Young Fullerton

I cannot tell why he, whom angels worship,
Should set his love on children of the earth.
Or why, as Shepherd, he should seek the wand’rers,
The lost, why he, should see in them such worth.
But this I know, that he was born of Mary,
When Bethl’hem’s manger was his only home,
And that he lived at Nazareth and labored,
And so the Savior, Savior of the world, is come

I cannot tell how silently he suffered,
As with his peace he graced this place of tears,
Or how his heart upon the Cross was broken,
The crown of pain to three and thirty years.
But this I know, he heals the broken-hearted,
And stays our sin, and calms our lurking fear,
And lifts the burden from the heavy laden,
For yet the Savior, Savior of the world, is here.

I cannot tell how he will win the nations,
How he will claim his earthly heritage,
How satisfy the needs and aspirations
Of east and west, of sinner and of sage.
But this I know, all flesh shall see his glory,
And he shall reap the harvest he has sown,
And some glad day his sun shall shine in splendor
When he the Savior, Savior of the world, is known.

I cannot tell how all the lands shall worship,
When, at his bidding, every storm is stilled,
Or who can say how great the jubilation
When ev’ry heart with joy and love is filled.
But this I know, the skies will thrill with rapture,
And myriad, myriad human voices sing,
And earth to heaven, and heaven to earth, will answer:
At last the Savior, Savior of the world, is King.


Following the benediction, please head straight to Atrium, where we will take a whole school photo. It should only take 5-10 mins. We continue to stand together in prayer during this Lenten season. After the photo, for those carrying particularly heavy burdens, prayer ministers will be in Room 231 (upstairs, to the right) immediately after chapel and willing to stand with you for an extended time of prayer.

Fill out the form below and one of our Admissions Counsellors will be happy to contact you.
