Welcoming Covenant

In the name of God and Jesus Christ, the Hingham Congregational Church

in our mission through participation and leadership of the congregation.

As a community of faith, we take seriously the biblical call to love God and our

neighbors as ourselves, and recognize that, although we are many members,

we are one.

❖   We celebrate the uniqueness of everyone.

❖   We rejoice in our diversity of views and understandings of our shared faith.

❖   We affirm relationships based on love, commitment, and mutual respect.

❖   As is stated in our by-laws, we strive for righteousness, justice and peace.

It is with this spirit and the love of God that we openly welcome all persons,

inclusive of every race, ethnicity, class, age, gender, physical or mental ability,

sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, and inclusive of any

others, to journey with us as we move forward with the work of this church in the

Opening Prayer and Lord’s Prayer

God of majesty, Christ of the outcast, Spirit of humility, we praise the

One who was neither corrupted by praise nor held back by

opposition. You, who came in peace and determination, are our center

and guide. Please help us to follow you through this holy week and to

join you in your sacred work of truth-telling and healing…


(silent prayer)


Our Father* who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever, Amen.

*Please feel free to pray as you wish. We respect tradition — and we welcome images

of the Divine that are diverse and inclusive.


Hosanna, Loud Hosanna

Todd Swavey, tenor

NCH 213

"Hosanna, loud hosanna," the little children sang;

through pillared court and temple the lovely anthem rang;

To Jesus, who had blessed them close folded to his breast,

the children sang their praises, the simplest and the best.

From Olivet they followed amid a cheering crowd,

the victor palm branch waving, and chanting clear and loud.

The one whom angels worship rode on in lowly state,

and glad to see the children, slowed down the donkey's gait.

"Hosanna in the highest!" that ancient song is ours.

We hail our great Redeemer and sing with all our powers:

"Hosanna, Christ, we praise you with heart and life and voice.

Scripture Reading: Mark 11:1-11

                 Deacon Carlos Mooney

Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem

When they were approaching Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples and said to them, ‘Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden; untie it and bring it. If anyone says to you, “Why are you doing this?” just say this, “The Lord needs it and will send it back here immediately.” ’ They went away and found a colt tied near a door, outside in the street. As they were untying it, some of the bystanders said to them, ‘What are you doing, untying the colt?’ They told them what Jesus had said; and they allowed them to take it. Then they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it; and he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut in the fields. Then those who went ahead and those who followed were shouting,


   Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!

   Blessed is the coming kingdom of our ancestor David!

Hosanna in the highest heaven!’

Then he entered Jerusalem and went into the temple; and when he had looked around at everything, as it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
