Lord, you give the great commission:
'heal the sick and preach the word'.
Lest the church neglect its mission,
and the gospel go unheard.
Yesterday, Saturday 16 December 2006, Dr Philip Leslie Freier was installed and recognised as the tenth Archbishop of Melbourne in the Metropolitical and Cathedral Church of Saint Paul, Melbourne.
The emphasis of the liturgy was on the role of the shepherd, on justice, and on the Archbishop's background in Northern Australia.

Come, O justice, come O Peace:
come and shape our hearts anew;
come and make oppression cease:
bring us all to life in you
