Responsorial Psalm:  992 I rejoiced when I heard them say

I rejoiced when I heard them say:
‘Let us go to the house of God.’
And now our feet are standing
in your gates, O Jerusalem.

Shalom, shalom, the peace of God be here.
Shalom, shalom God's justice be ever near

Like a temple of unity
is the city, Jerusalem
It is there that the tribes will gather,
all the tribes of the house of God (refrain)

It is faithful to Israel’s law,
there to praise the name of God
All the judgement seats of David
were set down in Jerusalem

For the peace of all nations,pray:
For God's peace within your homes.
May God's lasting peace surround us;
May it dwell in Jerusalem.

For the love of my friends and kin
I will bless you with signs of peace
For the love of God's own people
I will labour and pray for you

Alleluia: 72 Stay Awake, be ready (Advent Gospel Acc. for younger people)

You do not know the hour when the Lord is coming.
Stay awake, be ready. The Lord is coming soon!

Stay Awake – Chris O’Hara
Melody + Alto:

(keyboard only)
There will be signs upon the sun
The moon and stars will share Earth's agony.
And ev'ry nation will be fearful of the sound:
the ocean's roar, the raging sea

Then they will see the Son of Man
riding the clouds with pow'r and glory;
hold up your heads, your liberation is at hand:
your destiny, your destiny...

O stay awake, do not fear the night
The dawn will break with the Saviour's light
Your liberation is at hand:
O stay awake!  O stay awake!

(enter acoustic guitar)
The time is near, we must arise,
no longer living in the dark of night.
So arm yourselves as people living in the way
of truthfulness, integrity,

(enter violin/s on descant)
And hold a dream of days to come
when we will reach God's holy mountain
and change all weapons into instruments of peace
to sow the seed of justice.
(2nd Refrain enter Electric guitar/bass)

989 Word Made Flesh

Word made flesh, Son of God

Come Lord Jesus, come again;
Come Lord Jesus, come again;

Lord and Saviour, Son of God

Prince of Peace, Son of God (refrain)

Alleluia, Son of God; (refrain)

Bread of life, Son of God (refrain)

Light of the world, Son of God; (refrain)

Jesus Christ, Son of God; (refrain)

Final:  84 Like A Sea Without A Shore (Maranatha)

(musicians, let's play this in a flowing style, not like the "bouncy" version we used to do.)
Like a sea without a shore,
love divine is boundless.
Time is now and evermore,
and his love surrounds us.

Maranatha! Maranatha! Maranatha!
Come lord Jesus, come!

So that we could all be free,
He appeared among us,
Blest are those who have not seen,
Yet believe his promise.

All our visions all our dreams,
Are but ghostly shadows
of the Radiant clarity
waiting at life's close.

Death, where is your victory?
Death, where is your sting?
Closer than the air we breathe
Is our risen King.
