    Light one Candle to Watch for Messiah

    Light one Candle to Watch for Messiah

    Light one candle to watch for Messiah:

    let the light banish darkness.

    He shall bring salvation to Israel,

    God fulfills the promise.

     

    Light two candles to watch for Messiah;

    Let the light banish darkness

    He shall feed the flock like a shepherd

    Gently lead them home-ward

     

    Light three candles to watch for Messiah:

    let the light banish darkness.

    Lift your heads and lift high the gateway

    for the King of glory.

    ADVENT CANDLE LIGHTING:  JOY

    When I look around, I see shadows of sadness, families who have lost loved ones, people in prison, people who are isolated and feel on
    their own…

     

    When I look around, I see shadows of grief, people dreading the holidays because of painful memories, or because they don't want to spend another Christmas alone

     

     

    In the face of sadness, we light a candle of joy...

     

    In the face of grief, in the face of loss,
    we light a candle of joy...

     

    (Light the third candle in your Advent wreath.)

     

    May the light from this candle
    overwhelm the world.

     

    May the light from this candle
    say to all that God’s joy is coming,
    on earth as it already is in heaven.

     

    Friends, be not afraid, God’s joy is at hand!

    I've Got the Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy

    I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy,

    down in my heart, down in my heart,
    down in my heart;

    I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy,

    down in my heart, down in my heart to stay.

     

    I’ve got the peace that passes understanding,

    down in my heart, down in my heart,
     down in my heart;

    I’ve got the peace that passes understanding,

    down in my heart, down in my heart to stay.

     

    I’ve got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus,

    down in my heart, down in my heart,

    SONG OF THE DAY

    Mary Did You Know?

    Mary did you know that your baby boy
    will one day walk on water?

    Mary did you know that your baby boy
    will save our sons and daughters?

    Did you know that your baby boy
    has come to make you new?

    This child that you've delivered,
    will soon deliver you.

     

    Mary did you know that your baby boy
    will give sight to a blind man?

    Mary did you know that your baby boy
    will calm a storm with his hand?

    Did you know that your baby boy
    has walked where angels trod?

    And when you kiss your little baby,
    you have kissed the face of God.

     

    Oh Mary did you know

    Oh Mary did you know

     

    The blind will see, the deaf will hear
    and the dead will live again.

    The lame will leap, the dumb will speak,
    the praises of the lamb.

     

    Mary did you know that your baby boy
    is Lord of all creation?

    Mary did you know that your baby boy
    will one day rule the nations?

    Did you know that your baby boy
    is heaven's perfect Lamb?

    And the sleeping child you're holding
    is the great I AM.

    Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

    Come, thou long-expected Jesus,

    born to set thy people free;

    from our fears and sins release us;

    let us find our rest in thee.

    dear desire of ev'ry nation,

    joy of ev'ry longing heart.

     

     

    Born thy people to deliver,

    born a child, and yet a king;

    born to reign in us forever,

    now thy gracious kingdom bring.

     

    By thine own eternal Spirit

    rule in all our hearts alone;

    by thine all-sufficient merit

    raise us to thy glorious throne.

    Because of war, because of violence
    in our communities, because there is still
    so much unrest in our hearts,

    Because hatred is still so strong,
    because so many swords have not yet been remade into ploughshares,
    we light a candle of peace…

    who still guides us on to the end of our days

    God's banners are o'er us,

    God's light goes before us,

    a pillar of fire shining forth in the night,

    till shadows have vanished

    and darkness is banished,

    as forward we travel from light into light.

               

    God rules all the forces:

    the stars in their courses

    and sun in its orbit obediently shine;

    the hills and the mountains,

    the rivers and fountains,

    the deeps of the ocean proclaim God divine.

    We too should be voicing

    our love and rejoicing;

    with glad adoration a song let us raise

    till all things now living

    unite in thanksgiving:

    "To God in the highest, hosanna and praise!"

    For all the faithful women

    who served in days of old,

    to you shall thanks be given;

    to all, their story told.

    They served with strength and gladness

    in tasks your wisdom gave.

    To you their lives bore witness,

    proclaimed your pow'r to save.

    and pray for hearts set free

    to bind ourselves to others

    in love and loyalty.

     

    We sing of busy Martha,

    who toiled with pot and pan

    while Mary sat in silence

    to hear the word again.

    Christ, keep our hearts attentive

    to truth that you declare,

    and strengthen us for service

    when work becomes our prayer.

     

    Recall the outcast woman

    with whom our Lord conversed:

    Christ gave her living water

    to quench her deepest thirst.

    Like hers, our hearts are yearning;

    Christ offers us his word.

    Then may our lips be burning

    GATHERING SONG

    The Same Love

    You choose the humble

    and raise them high
    You choose the weak

    and make them strong 
    You heal our brokenness inside,

    And give us life

    The same love that set the captives free
    The same love that opened eyes to see
    Is calling us all by name,

    You are calling us all by name
    The same God that spread

    the heavens wide
    The same God that was crucified 
    Is calling us all by name,

    You are calling us all by name

    You take the faithless one aside 
    And speak the words "You are mine."
    You call the cynic and the proud,

    “Come to me now.”

    The same love that set the captives free
    The same love that opened eyes to see
    Is calling us all by name,

    You are calling us all by name
    The same God that spread

    the heavens wide
    The same God that was crucified 
    Is calling us all by name,

    You are calling us all by name

    Alleluia, alleluia.

    You're calling, You're calling, 

    You're calling us to the cross

    You're calling, You're calling, 

    You're calling us to the cross
    You're calling, You're calling, 

    You're calling us to the cross
    You're calling, You're calling, 

    You're calling us to the cross


    The same love that set the captives free
    The same love that opened eyes to see
    Is calling us all by name,

    You are calling us all by name
    The same God that spread

    the heavens wide
    The same God that was crucified 
    Is calling us all by name,

    You are calling us all by name

    Alleluia, alleluia

    You're calling, You're calling, 

    You're calling us to the cross
    You're calling, You're calling,

    You're calling us to the cross

    COMMUNION SONG:

    Praise You in the Storm

    I was sure by now, God,

    You would have reached down

    And wiped our tears away,

    Stepped in and saved the day.

    But once again I say, "Amen"

    and it's still rainin'

    But as the thunder rolls I barely hear

    You whisper through the rain

    "I'm with you"

    And as Your mercy falls

    I'll raise my hands and praise the God who gives, and takes away

     

    And I'll praise You in this storm,

    and I will lift my hands

    For You are who You are,

    no matter where I am

    And every tear I've cried,

    You hold in Your hand,

    You never left my side,

    And though my heart is torn

    I will praise You in this storm

     

    I remember when I stumbled in the wind

    You heard my cry,

    You raised me up again

    But my strength is almost gone,

    How can I carry on, If I can't find You?

    But as the thunder rolls I barely hear

    You whisper through the rain

    "I'm with you"

    And as Your mercy falls

    I'll raise my hands and praise the God who gives, and takes away

     

    And I'll praise You in this storm,

    And I will lift my hands

    For You are who You are

    No matter where I am

    And every tear I've cried

    You hold in Your hand

    You never left my side,

    And though my heart is torn

    I will praise You in this storm

     

    I lift my eyes unto the hills,

    Where does my help come from?

    My help comes from the Lord,

    The maker of heaven and earth

    I lift my eyes unto the hills,

    Where does my help come from?

    My help comes from the Lord, The maker of heaven and earth

     

    And I'll praise You in this storm,

    And I will lift my hands

    For You are who You are

    No matter where I am

    Every tear I've cried

    You hold in Your hand

    You never left my side,

    and though my heart is torn

    I will praise You in this storm

    And though my heart is torn,

    I'll praise You in this storm

    Day by day, your mercies,

    Lord, attend me,

    bringing comfort to my anxious soul.

    Day by day, the blessings,

    Lord, you send me

    draw me nearer to my heav'nly goal.

    Love divine, beyond all mortal measure,

    brings to naught

    the burdens of my quest;

    Savior, lead me to the home I treasure,

    where at last I'll find eternal rest.

     

    Day by day,

    I know you will provide me

    strength to serve and wisdom to obey;

    I will seek your loving will to guide me

    o'er the paths I struggle day by day.

    I will fear no evil of the morrow,

    I will trust in your enduring grace.

    Savior, help me bear

    life's pain and sorrow

    till in glory I behold your face.

     

    Oh, what joy to know

    that you are near me

    when my burdens grow

    too great to bear;

    oh, what joy to know that

    you will hear me

    when I come, O Lord, to you in prayer.

    Day by day, no matter what betide me,

    you will hold me ever in your hand.

    Savior, with your presence here

    to guide me,

    I will reach at last the promised land.

    How Great Thou Art

    O Lord my God,

    when I in awesome wonder,

    consider all the works

    thy hand hath made,

    I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,

    thy pow'r throughout, 

    the universe displayed;

     

    Then sings my soul,

    my Savior God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

    Then sings my soul,

    my Savior God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

     

    When through the woods

    and forest glades I wander,

    I hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;

    when I look down

    from lofty mountain grandeur

    and hear the brook

    and feel the gentle breeze; 

     

    Then sings my soul,

    my Savior God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

    Then sings my soul,

    my Savior God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

     

    But when I think

    that God, his Son not sparing,

    sent him to die, I scarce can take it in,

    that on the cross

    my burden gladly bearing

    he bled and died to take away my sin;

     

    Then sings my soul,

    my Savior God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

    Then sings my soul,

    my Savior God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

     

    When Christ shall come,

    with shout of acclamation,

    and take me home,

    what joy shall fill my heart!

    Then I shall bow in humble adoration

    and there proclaim,

    “My God, how great thou art!” 

     

    Then sings my soul,

    my Savior God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

    Then sings my soul,

    my Savior God, to thee,

    how great thou art! How great thou art!

    Song at the Center

    Chorus:

    From the corners of creation

    to the center where we stand

    Let all things be blessed and holy,

    all is fashioned by your hand;

    Brother wind and sister water,

    mother earth and father sky,

    Sacred plants and sacred creatures,

    sacred people of the land.

     

    In the east, the place of dawning,

    there is beauty in the morn.

    Here the seeker finds new visions

    as each sacred day is born;

    All who honor life around them,

    all who honor life within,

    They shall shine with light and glory

    when the morning breaks again.

    Chorus

     

    In the south, the place of growing,

    there is wisdom in the earth,

    Both the painful song of ding

    and the joyful song of birth.

    As the earth fives up her lifeblood

    so her children’s hearts may beat,

    We give back to her our rev’rence

    holy ground beneath our feet.

    Chorus

     

    In the north, the place of wisdom,

    there is holy darkness deep,

    Here the silent song of myst’ry

    may awake you from your sleep;

    Here the music still and holy

    sounds beneath the snow and night

    In the ones who wait with patience

    for the coming of the light.

    Chorus

     

    In the west, the place of seeing,

    there is born a vision new,

    Of the servant of the servants,

    who proclaimed a gospel true;

    Let the creatures of creation

    echo back creation’s prayer,

    Let the Spirit now breathe through us

    and restore the sacred there.

    Jesus Calls Us O’er the Tumult

    1    Jesus calls us; o'er the tumult

          of our life's wild, restless sea,

          day by day his clear voice sounding,

          saying, "Christian, follow me":

     

    2    As of old Saint Andrew heard it

          by the Galilean lake,

          turned from home and toil and kindred,

          leaving all for Jesus' sake.        

                                     

    3    Jesus calls us from the worship

          of the vain world's golden store,

          from each idol that would keep us,

          saying, "Christian, love me more."

     

    4    In our joys and in our sorrows,

          days of toil and hours of ease,

          still he calls, in cares and pleasures,

          "Christian, love me more than these."

     

    5    Jesus calls us! By your mercy,

          Savior, may we hear your call,

          give our hearts to your obedience,

          serve and love you best of all.
