Our readings today                                Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke                           


The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. ‘Teacher,’ he said, ‘what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ He said to him, ‘What is written in the law? What do you read there?’ He answered, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.’ And he said to him, ‘You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.’

But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’ Jesus replied, ‘A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan while travelling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, “Take care of him; and when I come back, I will repay you whatever more you spend.” Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbour to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?’ He said, ‘The one who showed him mercy.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go and do likewise.’                               Luke 10. 25-37

1. Lord the light of your love is shining,

in the midst of the darkness, shining:

Jesus, Light of the World, shine upon us,

set us free by the truth you now bring us

Shine on me, shine on me


Shine, Jesus, shine,

fill this land with the Father’s glory:

blaze, Spirit, blaze,

set our hearts on fire.

Flow, river, flow,

flood the nations with grace and mercy;

send forth your word, Lord,

and let there be light


2. Lord I come to your awesome presence, from the shadows into your radiance;

By the blood I may enter your brightness, search me, try me, consume all my darkness,

Shine on me, shine on me


3. As we gaze on your kingly brightness,

so our faces display your likeness,

ever changing from glory to glory;

mirrored here may our lives tell your story.

Shine on me, shine on me
