Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus
Scripture (from the Revised Common Lectionary, with links provided by TextWeek.com – a source for thoughtful worship and preaching throughout the year):
NOTE: Texts given on the Disciples website are for First Sunday of Christmas, rather than this Feast. Hymn suggestions below are for the Feast of the Holy Name.
Click on Scripture Lessons below for study links and resources for each individual pericope:
If using First Sunday of Christmas:
Suggested Hymns from Chalice Hymnal
Hymn of Praise: 127 or 150
Hymn of Invitation: 91 or 92
Dealing with the Psalm of the Day:
Since Chalice Hymnal does not provide a complete Psalter, there will be occasions when suggestions may be made for alternate Psalm use (or hymn equivalent). Hymns 21 & 22 are both appropriate.
RESOURCES from COMMON WORSHIP
whose blessed Son was circumcised
in obedience to the law for our sake
and given the Name that is above every name:
give us grace faithfully to bear his Name,
to worship him in the freedom of the Spirit,
and to proclaim him as the Saviour of the world;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
whose incarnate Son was given the Name of Saviour:
grant that we who have shared
in this sacrament of our salvation
may live out our years in the power
of the Name above all
