Gathering Hymn: 364 LBW, Son of God, Eternal Savior.
Hymn stanzas – Son of God, eternal saviour, Source of life and truth and Grace: Word made flesh whose birth among us Hallows all our human race. You our head wh throned in glory for your own will ever plead: Fill us with your love and pity, heal our wrongs and help our need.
As you Lord have lived for others, so may we for others live. Freely have your gifts been granted. Freely may your servants give. Yours the gold and yours the silver, yours the wealth of land and sea: We but stew-ards of your bounty, Held in solemn trust will be.
Come O Christ and reign among us, King of love and prince of peace: Hush the storm of strife and passion, bid its cruel discords cease. By your patient years of toiling, by your silent hours of pain. Quench our fevered thirst of pleasure, stem our selfish greed of gain.
Son of God eternal Savior, source of life and truth and grace. Word made flesh, whose birth among us Hallows all our human race. By your praying, by your willing, that your people should be one, Grant oh grant our hope’s fruition: here on earth your will be done.
