The Collect for Palm Sunday

The Holy Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ according to Mark

Response before: Glory to you, O Christ. Response after: Praise to you, O Christ.

The Lord be with you. And also with you.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give God thanks and praise.

It is right to praise you, Almighty God, for the acts of love by which you have redeemed us through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. On this day he entered the holy city of Jerusalem in triumph, and was proclaimed as King of kings by those who spread their garments and branches of palm along his way. Let these branches be for us signs of his victory, and grant that we who bear them in his name may ever hail him as our King, and follow him in the way that leads to eternal life; who lives and reigns in glory with you and the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.

Hymn: All glory, laud, and honor

All glory, laud, and honor to thee, Redeemer, King,

To whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring. Thou art the King of Israel, thou David’s royal Son

Who in the Lord’s name comest, the King and Blessed One. (repeat refrain)

The Word of God

The Lord be with you. And also with you.

Let us pray. Almighty and everliving God, in your tender love for the human race you sent your Son our Savior Jesus Christ to take upon him our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross, giving us the example of his great humility: Mercifully grant that we may walk in the way of his suffering, and also share in his resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

A Reading from Paul’s Letter to the Philippians

Response after the reading: Thanks be to God.

Psalm 31:9-16, responsively by half-verse

Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; *

my eye is consumed with sorrow, and also my throat and my belly.

For my life is wasted with grief, and my years with sighing; *

my strength fails me because of affliction, and my bones are consumed.

I have become a reproach to all my enemies and even to my neighbors,

a dismay to those of my acquaintance; * when they see me in the street they avoid me.

I am forgotten like a dead man, out of mind; * I am as useless as a broken pot.

For I have heard the whispering of the crowd; fear is all around; *

they put their heads together against me; they plot to take my life.

But as for me, I have trusted in you, O Lord. * I have said, “You are my God.

My times are in your hand; *

rescue me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me.

Make your face to shine upon your servant, * and in your loving-kindness save me.”

The Passion according to Mark

(When Pilate asks, “Then what do you wish me to do with the man you call the King of the Jews?” please unmute yourself to take the part of the crowd: “They shouted back, ‘Crucify him!’ Pilate asked them, ‘Why, what evil has he done?’ But they shouted all the more, ‘Crucify him!’” Then please mute yourself again.)

The Peace and Announcements

The Holy Communion

Eucharistic Prayer A

The Lord be with you. And also with you.

Lift up your hearts. We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give God thanks and praise.

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, through Jesus Christ our Lord. For our sins he was lifted high upon the cross, that he might draw the whole world to himself; and, by his suffering and death, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who put their trust in him. Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Eucharistic Prayer continues . . . Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith:

Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.

Eucharistic Prayer continues . . . By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever. AMEN.

The Lord’s Prayer

The Breaking of the Bread

We break this bread to share in the Body of Christ.

We who are many are one body, for we all share in the one bread.

Music at Communion Revelation Song

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain; holy, holy is He

Sing a new song to Him who sits on heaven’s mercy seat

Refrain: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty who was and is and is to come

With all creation I sing praise to the King of kings; You are my everything and I will adore You

Clothed in rainbows of living color; flashes of lighting rolls of thunder

Blessing and honor strength and glory and power be to You the only wise King. Refrain

Filled with wonder awestruck wonder at the mention of Your name

Jesus Your name is power, breath and living water; such a marvelous mystery. Refrain

Let us pray.

Eternal God, heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, and you have fed us with spiritual food in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood. Send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer over the People

Closing Hymn You, Lord, are both Lamb and Shepherd

You, Lord, are both Lamb and Shepherd. You, Lord, are both prince and slave. You, peacemaker and swordbringer of the way you took and gave.

You the everlasting instant; You, whom we both scorn and crave. Clothed in light upon the mountain, stripped of might upon the cross, shining in eternal glory, beggar’d by a soldier’s toss,

You the everlasting instant; You, who are both gift and cost.

The Dismissal

Go in peace, to love and serve the Lord. Thanks be to God.
