REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY

12TH NOVEMBER 2017

AT THE WETHERBY WAR MEMORIAL

When all are gathered, the hymn will be sung:

O God, our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come,

Our shelter from the stormy blast,

And our eternal home;

Beneath the shadow of Thy throne Thy saints have dwelt secure;

Sufficient is Thine arm alone,

And our defence is sure.

Before the hills in order stood,

Or earth received her frame,

From everlasting Thou art God,

To endless years the same

A thousand ages in

Thy sight Are like an evening gone;

Short as the watch that ends the night

Before the rising sun.

Our God, our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come,

Be Thou our guard whiles troubles last,

And our eternal home

Act of Remembrance

Minister: Let us remember before God, and commend to His sure keeping: Those who have died for their country in war: Those whom we know and whose memory we treasure; And all who have lived and died in the service of mankind.

The Exhortation

Chairman, Royal British Legion They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.

All: We will remember them

The Last Post will be sounded

TWO MINUTES SILENCE

The Reveille will be sounded

The Kohima Epitaph

When you go home, tell them of us and say, for your tomorrows, we gave our today.

Wreath Laying Ceremony

Minister: Almighty and eternal God, from whose love in Christ we cannot be parted, either by death or life; hear our prayers and thanksgiving for all whom we remember this day; fulfil in them the purpose of Thy love; and bring us all with them, to Thine eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The National Anthem will be sung:

God save our gracious Queen

Long live our noble Queen

God save the Queen

Send her victorious

Happy and glorious

Long to reign over us

God Save the Queen

Thy choicest gifts in store

On her be pleased to pour

Long may she reign

May she defend our laws

And ever give us cause

To sing with heart and voice

God save the Queen

The procession then moves on to St James’ Church for the Remembrance Service.
