Hymn – God, we see what you have given
1 God, we see what you have given;
Signs of grace are everywhere!
All around are gifts from heaven —
Gifts enough for all to share.
We are stewards of your bounty,
Called to give as we've received;
And your blessings have been plenty
From the day we first believed.

2 We are stewards of the richness
That you send from heav'n above.
For in Christ, you gave up greatness,
Humbly showing us your love.
In a manger — gift from heaven!
On a cross — with love and pain!
You proclaimed we are forgiven;
Now you send us in your name.

3 We are stewards of your welcome
That you showed through Christ the Son.
In his living and his teaching,
Jesus welcomed everyone.
To the outcast and the stranger,
He showed hospitality!
By your Spirit, may we also
Give the welcome we've received.

4 We are stewards, sent out sharing,
Offering you our very best.
Through our serving and our caring
May we give as we've been blessed.
God of love, may faithful living
Be much more than Sunday talk.
Send us loving, serving, giving;
Help us daily walk your walk!

Hymn - God of the Women
Tune - Slane

1 God of the women who answered your call,
Trusting your promises, giving their all,
Women like Sarah and Hannah and Ruth —
Give us their courage to live in your truth.

2 God of the women who walked Jesus' Way,
Giving their resources, learning to pray,
Mary, Joanna, Susanna, and more —
May we give freely as they did before.

3 God of the women long put to the test,
Left out of stories, forgotten, oppressed,
Quietly asking: "Who smiled at my birth?" —
In Jesus' dying you show us our worth.

4 God of the women who ran from the tomb,
Prayed with the others in that upper room,
Then felt your Spirit on Pentecost Day —
May we so gladly proclaim you today.

5 O God of Phoebe and ministers all,
May we be joyful in answering your call.
Give us the strength of your Spirit so near
That we may share in your ministry here.

Hymn - Open Wide Your Heavens!
("In The Bleak Midwinter")
1 Open wide your heavens! Let your name
be known!
So the world will know, Lord, we are not
alone.
You who once did awesome deeds — show
your presence here!
Open wide your heavens! Let us know
you're near.

2 In this Advent season, Lord, we wait and
pray:
Why do you seem hidden? Are you far
away?
Though your faithfulness is sure, we have
often sinned;
Like the leaves we're fading, carried by the
wind.

3 Carried by our culture, we seek more and more;
As we long to prosper, we forget the poor.
As we yearn for earthly things, we forget
your name.
Open wide your heavens! Make us whole
again.

4 Lord, you are the potter; we are simply
clay.
Take the lives we offer; mold us more each
day.
In this holy Advent time, show us all anew:
You reach out and bless us, when we wait
for you.
