Call to Worship, Advent 4 — Thandiwe Dale-Ferguson, USA

Kathmandu — Thandiwe Dale-Ferguson

A responsive reading

Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel and restore us O God:
Let your face shine, that we may be saved.
From the throngs of city centers to the far-flung wilderness:
Let your face shine, that we may be saved.
To every nation, race and people:
Let your face shine, that we may be saved.
In the midst of darkness and despair:
Let your face shine, that we may be saved.
To the innermost sanctuaries of our spirits:
Let your face shine, that we may be saved.
Turn again, O God of hosts:
Let your face shine! In hope, in peace, in joy, in love.
Let your face shine upon us, O God!
