We thank you, God of all and all to come, for it is in you we live;
our sin’s release, and eternal peace in your Covenant you give.
Praise, praise, Creation sings to God, who shines in all good things.
Peace, peace on earth to all, for blessed is One who is coming.
We sing your praise in harmony with the song that Jesus has sung us,
on Christmas morn, of Mary born, the Word made flesh among us.
Christ, Christ you set us free from sin and death eternally!
Christ, dead and raised, you give new life as we wait for your coming.
O stir your Spirit in us and come enfleshed, as we of your mercy tell.
Your love impart to every heart, O God, Emmanuel.
Love, love will give us birth, your church, the Body of Christ on earth.
Christ, Christ be born in us, that we may be signs of your coming.
