ELW 655 Son of God, Eternal Saviour

1 Son of God, eternal Savior, source of life and truth and grace,
   Word made flesh, whose birth among us hallows all our human race,
   you our head, who, throned in glory, for your own will ever plead:
   fill us with your love and pity, heal our wrong, and help our need.

2 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 stewards of your bounty held in solemn trust will be.

3 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.

4 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.

Text: Somerset C. Lowry, 1855-1932


Psalm 68

God, in your forgiveness, you have made a home;
You have made a home for the poor.


Cares Chorus

I cast all my cares upon You.
I lay all of my burdens down at Your feet.
And any time that I don't know what to do,
I will cast all my cares upon You.

ELW 581 You Are Mine

1 "I will come to you in the silence, I will lift you from all your fear.
   You will hear my voice, I claim you as my choice. Be still and know I am here."

2 "I am hope for all who are hopeless, I am eyes for all who long to see.
   In the shadows of the night, I will be your light. Come and rest in me."

   "Do not be afraid, I am with you. I have called you each by name.
   Come and follow me, I will bring you home; I love you and you are mine."

3 "I am strength for all the despairing, healing for the ones who dwell in shame.
   All the blind will see, the lame will all run free, and all will know my name."  Refrain

4 "I am the Word that leads all to freedom, I am the peace the world cannot give.
   I will call your name, embracing all your pain. Stand up, now walk and live!"  Refrain

ELW 638 Blessed Assurance

1 Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
   Heir of salvation, purchase of God, born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.

   This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior, all the day long:
   this is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long.

2 Perfect submission, perfect delight, visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
   angels descending bring from above echoes of mercy, whispers of love.  Refrain

3 Perfect submission, all is at rest; I in my Savior am happy and blest,
   watching and waiting, looking above, filled with his goodness, lost in his love.  Refrain
