We Welcome The Dawning

A Hymn for the Opening of Worship

We welcome the dawning—
The newly made morning—
When God, O so gently,
Turns back the night!
God calls to invite us,
In faith to unite us,
And draws near beside us,
In glorious light!

We welcome the singing
Our voices are bringing,
When God, O so kindly,
Provides the song!
The music God gives us,
Can cheer us, revive us,
And courage, provide us,
Our whole life long!

We welcome the praying
Our true hearts are saying,
The hopes we’re conveying,
So God may know!
We welcome the reading
Of scripture, and heeding
To follow God’s leading,
Where ever we go.
