Sunday 8 April 2012


The Chapel of Trinity College and Janet Clarke Hall is an Anglican Church in Trinity College’s grounds at the University of Melbourne. People of all denominations and faiths or none are welcome at Chapel worship. The College Chaplains, eminent visiting preachers, and members of Trinity and Janet Clarke Hall communities all preach at various services throughout the year.

Chapel services reflect the rich Anglican heritage of Trinity College, but it is not necessary to be an Anglican or a regular worshipper to join in Chapel worship and other activities including Choral Evensong at 6.00pm on Sundays during term and Holy Communion at 5.30pm on Tuesdays, guided by students from the Residential College. Staff and students from the University and the wider community join students and staff in Sunday and weekday worship. Students and staff may also join in Chapel activities including bible studies and College retreats.

Happy Easter to all celebrate it, and a Blessed Palm Sunday to all Eastern Church faithful.

This is a post in the Psalm Sunday meme hosted by Robert and by Louis.

Here is Psalm 118 sung in the fifth tone.

Psalm 118
New King James Version (NKJV)
Praise to God for His Everlasting Mercy
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
Let Israel now say,
“His mercy endures forever.”
Let the house of Aaron now say,
“His mercy endures forever.”
Let those who fear the Lord now say,
“His mercy endures forever.”
I called on the Lord in distress;
The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.
The Lord is on my side;
I will not fear.
What can man do to me?
The Lord is for me among those who help me;
Therefore I shall see my desire on those who hate me.
It is better to trust in the Lord
Than to put confidence in man.
It is better to trust in the Lord
Than to put confidence in princes.
All nations surrounded me,
But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
They surrounded me,
Yes, they surrounded me;
But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
They surrounded me like bees;
They were quenched like a fire of thorns;
For in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
You pushed me violently, that I might fall,
But the Lord helped me.
The Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation.[a]
The voice of rejoicing and salvation
Is in the tents of the righteous;
The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
The right hand of the Lord is exalted;
The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
I shall not die, but live,
And declare the works of the Lord.
The Lord has chastened me severely,
But He has not given me over to death.
Open to me the gates of righteousness;
I will go through them,
And I will praise the Lord.
This is the gate of the Lord,
Through which the righteous shall enter.
I will praise You,
For You have answered me,
And have become my salvation.
The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the Lord’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Save now, I pray, O Lord;
O Lord, I pray, send now prosperity.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
We have blessed you from the house of the Lord.
God is the Lord,
And He has given us light;
Bind the sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.
You are my God, and I will praise You;
You are my God, I will exalt You.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.


  1. Beautiful photos of the chapel! It is such a treat to visit you here - and thank you for the information you always provide. Have a wonderful day, whichever one you celebrate today! The season is one of great sadness for the necessity of our Lord's death, but pure joy at the depth of His love for us! Blessings to you.

  2. Wonderful photos, particularly for today. Thanks for these. I went to church as I do every week and enjoyed the spiritual top up. It is always nice to remember how lucky we are and how much we have to be thankful for, especially as Christians.
