Thirteenth Sunday after Ordinary Time

According to the church calendar, Ordinary Time is the time in between liturgical seasons. The period of Ordinary Time after Pentecost marks the passage of time between Trinity Sunday and Christ the King Sunday, which is the final Sunday of the liturgical year. During this portion of Ordinary Time we focus on transformation and growth, which are symbolized by fresh flowers and green linens on the altar.

O love that will not let me go
I rest my weary soul in thee
I give thee back the life I owe
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be

O Light that followest all my way
I yield my flickering torch to thee
My heart restores its borrowed ray
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be

O joy that seekest me through pain
I cannot close my heart to thee
I trace the rainbow through the rain
And feel the promise is not in vain
That morn shall tearless be

O cross that liftest up my head
I dare not ask to fly from thee
I lay in dust, life’s glory dead
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be

O love that will not let me go
I rest my weary soul in thee
I give thee back the life I owe
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be

I am so grateful for all you have given
The strength for this journey, the promise of heaven
A seat at your table, a place in your kingdom
The love of the Father, these sisters and brothers
I am so grateful, grateful, I am so grateful, grateful

Thank you, Father, Oh how I love you, thank you for the light of your Son
Thank you for the joy of your Spirit, thank you, we sing out as one


Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And also with you.
Leader: Lift up your hearts.
People: We lift them up to the Lord.
Leader: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
People: It is right to give God thanks and praise.
Leader: It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to
            give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
People: Amen.
