Gathering Hymn ELW 710, Let Streams of Living Justice
Let streams of living justice
flow down upon the earth;
give freedom’s light to captives,
let all the poor have worth.
The hungry’s hands are pleading
the workers claim their rights,
the mourners long for laughter,
the blinded seek for sight.
Make liberty a beacon,
strike down the iron power;
abolish ancient vengeance:
proclaim your people’s hour.
For healing of the nations,
for peace that will not end,
for love that makes us lovers,
God grant us grace to mend.
Weave our varied gifts together;
knit our lives as they are spun;
on your loom of time enroll us
till our thread of life is run.
O great weaver of our fabric,
bind church and world in one;
dye our texture with your radiance,
light our colors with your sun.
Your city’s built to music;
we are the stones you seek;
your harmony is language;
we are the words you speak.
Our faith we find in service,
our hope in others’ dreams,
our love in hand of neighbor;
our homeland brightly gleams.
Inscribe our hearts with justice;
your way–the path untried;
your truth–the heart of stranger;
your life–the Crucicfied.
Scripture texts for November 15: Zephaniah 1:7, 12-18; Matthew 25:14-30
Hymn of the Day: WOV 765: Jesu, Jesu, Fill Us With Your Love

Lo! he comes with clouds descending, Once for favoured sinners slain; Thousand thousand saints attending Swell the triumph of his train: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Christ the Lord returns to reign. Yea, Amen! let all adore thee, High on thine eternal throne; Saviour, take the power and glory: Claim the kingdom for thine own: Alleluia, Alleluia, alleluia! Though shalt reign and thou alone!
Rejoice, rejoice, believers, and let your lights appear! The evening is advancing, and darker night is near. The Bridegroom is arising and soon is drawing nigh; up, pray and watch and wrestle; At midnight comes the cry. Our hope and expectation, O Jesus, now appear; arise, O Sun so longed for, O’er this benighted sphere. With hearts and hands uplifted, we plead, O Lord, to see the day of earth's redemption That sets your people free
