Love divine all loves excelling, Joy of heaven to earth come down;
Fix in us thy humble dwelling; all thy faithful mercies crown.
Lord, breathe, o breathe Thy loving Spirit, into every troubled breast!
Gracious and loving God, in this season of Love,
Remember with Your favor the children of the Selulasandla and their care givers;
Remember with Your protection the children still on the streets in Mozambique;
Remember with Your love the children in the snow covered mountains of Mokhotlong;
Remember with Your provisions the men and women out of work in America;
Remember with Your justice the men unjustly incarcerated;
Remember with Your peace the women tormented with abuse and disrespect;
Remember us in our frailties and in Your faithfulness, have mercy on your people.
Take away our bent to sinning; be our Alpha and Omega, Lord.
Set our hearts at liberty during this Advent.
In faith, hope and love we pray expectantly in Jesus name. Amen
