God of Our Journeys - Now in this Banquet (Haugen)

MP3 Music Playlist: 
Advent: God of our journeys, daybreak to night; Lead us to justice and light.
Grant us compassion, strength for the day, Wisdom to walk in your way.

Lent : Lord, you can open hearts that are stone; Live in our flesh and our bone;
Lead us to wonder, myst'ry and grace, One in your loving embrace. 

Communion: Now in this banquet, Christ is our bread; Here shall all hungers be fed.
Bread that is broken, wine that is poured, Love is the sign of our Lord.

1. You who have touched us and graced us with love, make us your people of goodness and light.

2. Let our hearts burn with the fire of your love; open our eyes to the glory of God.

3. God who makes the blind to see, God who makes the lame to walk, bring us dancing into day, lead your people in your way.

4. Hope for the hopeless, light for the blind, 'Strong' is your name, Lord, 'Gentle' and 'Kind.'

5. Call us to be your light, call us to be your love, make us your people again.

6. Come, O Spirit! renew our hearts! We shall arise to be children of light.
