Verse 1 

All are welcome in this place—young and old of every race.

In these sacred halls we meet, join together at Christ’s feet.

See the light from heav’n above, blessings from our God of love.

Judgment here you shall not find, God called good all humankind.

All creation finds its worth in the gift of Jesus’ birth! 

Verse 2 

Here we offer to Your will, all our mem’ry, reason, skill.

May our prayer never cease, in our worship we find peace.

In the silence and the stillness, come, O Christ, your spirit fill us.

Seeking wisdom from your Word, truth for all the world is heard.

All creation finds its worth in the gift of Jesus’ birth! 

Verse 3 

Trapped by all our doubts and fears you speak freedom to our ears.

Cast down by the world’s harsh sin, find forgiveness here within.

Lifting up our hands in love, take the body and the Blood.

God within us pleased to dwell, sending us Good News to tell.

All creation finds its worth in the gift of Jesus’ birth! 

Verse 4 

All creation’s pain He feels, sends us out, the world to heal.

Let us be your hands and feet; love and hope to all we meet.

Helping others near and far, following that guiding star.

Feeding body, mind, and soul, giving thanks when spirits grow.

All creation finds its worth in the gift of Jesus’ birth!
