Fifteenth Sunday – (LBW Pentecost 8) –
Almighty God, your Word is cast like seed upon the ground;
Now let the dew of heav’n descend and righteous fruits abound.
Let not our selfishness and hate this holy seed remove,
but give it root in every heart to bring forth fruits of love.
Let not the world’s deceitful cares the rising plant destroy,
but let it yield a hundredfold the fruits of peace and joy.
Hymn: John Cawood
