Welcome Rev Megan Penfold

 

Lighting the Christ Candle

 

Praises: We Three Kings

We three Kings of Orient are,

Bearing gifts traverse afar.

Field and fountain, moor and mountain,

Following yonder star.

O, star of wonder, star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright.

Westward leading still proceeding,

guide us to thy perfect light.

-----------

Born a king on Bethlehem’s plain,

Gold I bring to crown him again,

King forever, ceasing never,

Over us all to reign.

O, star of wonder, star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright.

Westward leading still proceeding,

guide us to thy perfect light.

-----------

Frankincense to offer have I,

Incense owns a deity nigh,

Prayer and praising all men raising,

worship him, God Most High.

O, star of wonder, star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright.

Westward leading still proceeding,

guide us to thy perfect light.

-----------

Myrrh is mine its bitter perfume.

Breathes of life of gathering gloom,

Sorrow sighing, bleeding dying,

sealed in the stone-cold tomb.

O, star of wonder, star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright.

Westward leading still proceeding,

guide us to thy perfect light.

-----------

Glorious now behold him arise,

King and God and sacrifice,

Alleluia, alleluia, Earth to heaven replies.

O, star of wonder, star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright.

Westward leading still proceeding,

guide us to thy perfect light.

 

 

Call to Worship:

Leader: Look to the East, the light is dawning.

All: The glory of the Lord has risen upon us.

 

Leader: Lift up your eyes and look around!

All: Christ’s light has come to transform our hearts!

 

Leader: The light of salvation shines for all to see. Jesus Christ, Light of the World, has come for all people!

All: We worship you, God of Light: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

Sharing the Peace of Christ:

Peace before us,

Peace behind us,

Peace under our feet.

Peace within us,

Peace above us, may all around us be peace.

The peace of Christ be with you.

Message: A New and Glorious Light Rev. Megan Penfold

Praises: Here I Am to Worship

Light of the world, you stepped down into darkness,

Opened my eyes let me see.

Beauty that made this heart adore you

Hope of a life spent with you.

-----------

Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down,

Here I am to say that you’re my God.

You’re altogether lovely, altogether worthy,

Altogether wonderful to me.

King of all days oh so highly exalted,

Glorious in heaven above.

Humbly you came to the earth you created.

All for love’s sake became poor.

-----------

Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down,

Here I am to say that you’re my God.

You’re altogether lovely, altogether worthy,

Altogether wonderful to me.

-----------

I’ll never know how much it cost

to see my sin upon that cross.

(repeat 2x)

-----------

Here I am to worship, here I am to bow down,

Here I am to say that you’re my God.

You’re altogether lovely, altogether worthy,

Altogether wonderful to me.

(repeat)

Amen, amen, amen.
