Passing the Peace of Christ and Welcoming the Light of Christ

Hymn: “God Reigns o’er All the Earth” 21 (NCH)

God reigns o’er all the Earth! Green hills and valleys low, the farms and towns in golds and browns God’s grace and beauty show. God reigns o’er all the Earth! Stone banks and spreading plains, in rainbow hues – reds, yellows, blues, of streams and country lanes.

God reigns o’er human life! Through youth and aging years, in death, in birth, in grief, in mirth, in all our hopes and fears. God reigns o’er human life! Our inspiration still. Through all our schemes, in all our dreams, we see God’s reigning will.

God reigns o’er time and space! In history’s bygone days, Christ’s faithful folk in reverence spoke to bring God earnest praise. God reigns o’er time and space! O’er galaxy and sun, through timeless years the cosmos hears the heavenly music run.

God reigns! Emmanuel! God with us every day in all our past and to the last, our comfort and our stay. God reigns! Emmanuel! Let praise to Christ be sung! God’s presence here makes all things dear. Let joyful bells be rung!

Our Light moves into the World God Loves

Hymn: “Let Justice Flow Like Streams” 588 (NCH)

Let justice flow like streams of sparkling water pure, enabling growth, refreshing life, abundant, cleansing, sure.

Let righteousness roll on as other’s cares we heed, and ever flowing stream of faith translated into deed.

So may God’s plumb line, straight, define our measure true, and justice, right, and peace pervade this world our whole life through.

benediction and “Love Round”
