In the second reading, from 2 Timothy, we heard St Paul’s words:
If we have died with him, then we shall live with him,
If we hold firm, then we shall reign with him.
and we sang them again in the first verse of our Communion song. Before that, we took words from the entrance antiphon:
If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?
and sang them in Samuel Wesley’s gem of a miniature for three-part unaccompanied men’s voices.
