Light looked down and saw darkness.

"I will go there," said light.

Peace looked down and saw war.

"I will go there," said peace.

Love looked down and saw hatred.

"I will go there," said love.

So he, the Lord of Light, the Prince of Peace, the King of Love, came down and crept in beside us.


Chorus – “O Come, Let Us Adore Him” Amy Martin, Brittany Martin, and Mason Rice

O come, let us adore him

O come, let us adore him

O come, let us adore him

Christ the Lord


We’ll give him all the glory

We’ll give him all the glory

We’ll give him all the glory

Christ the Lord.


For he alone is worthy

For he alone is worthy

For he alone is worthy

Christ the Lord


We’ll praise his name forever

We’ll praise his name forever

We’ll praise his name forever

Christ the Lord

We’ll praise his name forever

Christ the Lord

Wesley Covenant Prayer UMH #607 – Rev. Scott Aleridge, District Superintendent of the Cumberland River District

https://vimeo.com/showcase/7922301/video/492278724


I am no longer my own, but thine. Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt. Put me to doing, put me to suffering. Let me be employed by thee or laid aside for thee, Exalted for thee or brought low for thee. Let me be full, let me be empty. Let me have all things, let me have nothing. I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal. And now, O Glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, Let it be ratified in heaven. Amen


Benediction – Bishop William T. McAlilly
