Upon our nature’s night!
The darkness dies before the morn
and God himself a child is born
the long- awaited Light.
2. Life of the world, a life laid down,
who chose the cross before the crown
And opened heaven’s door.
he broke the chains of death and hell

Closing Hymn
1. Longing for light, we wait in darkness.
Longing for truth, we turn to you.
Make us your own, your holy people,
light for the world to see.
3. Longing for food, many are hungry.
Longing for water, many still thirst.
Make us your bread, broken for others,
shared until all are fed.
Christ, be our light !
Shine in our hearts.
Shine through the darkness.
Christ, be our light !
Shine in your church gathered today.
4. Longing for shelter, many are homeless.
Longing for warmth, many are cold.
Make us your building, sheltering others,
walls made of living stone.
2. Longing for peace, our world is troubled.
Longing for hope, many despair.
Your word alone has power to save us.
Make us your living voice.
5. Many the gifts, many the people,
many the hearts that yearn to belong.
Let us be servants to one another,
making your kingdom come.
