Call to Worship and Opening Prayer for the Sunday after Christmas

Call to Worship
Inspired by “Unto us a Child is born”, author unknown

Unto us a child is born,
Our hearts are ready to hear.
     King of kings and Lord of lords,
     Let your love wash over us.

In a manger he was laid,
And angels gazed upon him.
     King of kings and Lord of lords,
     Let your love wash over us.

Praise to you, Beginning and End,
Love begotten from love.
     This shall be our chorus,
     King of kings and Lord of lords,
     Let your love wash over us.

Unison Opening Prayer

Holy One,
Thank you for the miracle of Jesus.
For the life of a small babe, powerless and powerful.
For the grace that came to us, on that distant Christmas day.
Unite our hearts, lead us to be a witness for love.
In the name of the Christ-Child we pray,
Amen.
