St Johns, Johnsonville and Holy Trinity, Ohariu
We light this candle signifying love:
our common need, our common wealth.
Love is our protest against broken relationships;
Love is God’s gift.
Come Christ, Love of our hearts
Enter our lives so that all people may have a place to stand.
Let love be here – love from the Christmas stable,
love at our open table, love to be shared all year.
You heavens above rain down righteousness;
let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide,
let salvation spring up.
God faithful and true,
make us eager with expectation,
as we look for the fulfillment of your promise
in Jesus Christ our Saviour,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen
