Prelude                                 Winter                         by R.A. Mac-Dowell

 

Welcome

 

Hymn:        The Baptist Shouts on Jordan’s Shore  NCH #115

 

The Baptist shouts on Jordan’s shore, the

earth shakes with the mighty roar, Awake, let lazy

sleep now flee: behold, the voice of prophecy!

 

The earth and sky and sea now feel that

which their Author will reveal: The Child now leaping

in the womb as God does human form assume.

 

Clean up your hearts, lay down the way, for

God approaches day by day; Prepare for such a

worthy heir, for such a guest your house prepare.

 

Through you, O Jesus, you alone sal-

vation, solace, strength are know; Without your love we

fade like grass, like wilted flowers our lives will pass.

 

Your hands extend, our pain embrace,

lift up the prostrate, shoe your face; Though we in part your

beauty know, O blossom forth, your splendor show.

 

O One who comes to set us free,

O Child, to you our song will be, With Father, Spirit mothering,

to you shall praise forever ring!

            

Opening Prayer Scripture: Isaiah 40:1-5

God’s People Are Comforted

Comfort, O comfort my people,

   says your God.

Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,

   and cry to her

that she has served her term,

   that her penalty is paid,

that she has received from the Lord’s hand

   double for all her sins.

A voice cries out:

‘In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord,

   make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Every valley shall be lifted up,

   and every mountain and hill be made low;

the uneven ground shall become level,

   and the rough places a plain.

Then the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,

   and all people shall see it together,

   for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.’
