Worship for The Sixth Sunday of Easter

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.

Hymn: 454 Jesus came adored by angels


Jesus came, adored by angels
1Jesus came, adored by angels,

came with peace from realms on high;

Jesus came for our redemption,

lowly came on earth to die:

Alleluia, alleluia!

came in deep humility.

2Jesus comes again in mercy,

when our hearts are bowed with care:

Jesus comes again in answer

to our earnest heart-felt prayer;

Alleluia, alleluia!

comes to save us from despair.

3Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing,

bringing news of sins forgiven;

Jesus comes in sounds of gladness,

leading souls redeemed to heaven;

Alleluia, alleluia!

now the gate of death is riven.

4Jesus comes on clouds triumphant,

when the heavens shall pass away;

Jesus comes again in glory;

let us then our homage pay:

Alleluia, alleluia!

till the dawn of endless day.
