This prayer can be sung to the tune of
O Come, O Come Emmanuel (VENI EMMANUEL)
O Source of Hope, supply us with the grace
To see the places where your love resides,
And when we see, O God, help us know
That you are moving in our broken lives.
With us, through us, your loving presence grows
And gives us hope in what the future holds.
O Source of Love, supply us with the grace
To be like Jesus in this world of pain
To love and let your goodness be known
Responding with compassion from our souls
In words, in deeds, in all the ways we live
May we extend the healing love you give.
O Source of Joy, supply us with the grace
To sense your presence in this moment now,
So we may come to know deep within
The blessings of Emmanuel
With us, in life, in happiness and grief
“God with us” is our joy and our belief.
O Source of Peace, supply us with the grace
To see the sin that sharpens our divides
And meet the hate and pain with your love,
So we may join your reconciling song.
The world, our life, is riddled with dis-ease
But with your spirit we may foster peace.
