Worship for the Fifth Sunday ofEaster

Hymn 593 Lord, make us servants of your peace


Lord, make us servants of your peace
1Lord, make us servants of your peace:

where there is hate, may we sow love;

where there is hurt, may we forgive;

where there is strife, may we make one.

2Where all is doubt, may we sow faith;

where all is gloom, may we sow hope;

where all is night, may we sow light;

where all is tears, may we sow joy.

3Jesus, our Lord, may we not seek

to be consoled, but to console,

nor look to understanding hearts,

but look for hearts to understand.

4May we not look for love’s return,

but seek to love unselfishly,

for in our giving we receive,

and in forgiving are forgiven.

5Dying, we live, and are reborn

through death’s dark night to endless day:

Lord, make us servants of your peace,

to wake at last in heaven’s light.
