Call To Worship

  Leader:   Savior of the nations cone, Virgins son here make thy home! Marvel now oh heaven and earth, that the lord chose such a birth.

  People:  Not by human flesh or blood, but the spirit of our God was the Word of God made flesh, woman’s offspring pure and fresh

  Leader:   Wondrous birth oh wondrous child of the virgin undefiled!  Human and divine in one, eager now his race to run.

  People:  Born of the Father’s Love

  Leader:  He has come to his people and redeemed them.  He                 has raised up a horn of salvation for us !

  People:  God the Father is his source,  back to God he run his course, down to death and hell descends, Gods high throne he reascends.
   All: Now that mangers halo bright hallows night with newborn light; let no night this light subdue, let our faith shine ever new.

Amen

 

UNISON PRAYER: 

   Eternal God, by the birth of Jesus Christ you gave yourself to the world. Grant that being born in our hearts, he may save us from all our sins, and restore within us the image and likeness of our Creator, to whom be everlasting praise and glory, world without end. Amen
