O Giver of Abundant Love, Come
1 Thessalonians 3:12 . . . and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another
and to all people . . .
O Giver of Abundant Love, Come~
Grant that our own hearts might be
transplanted with yours.
Open us, soften us,
that as easily as we can love
those who love us, those who are like us,
those who believe as we do,
we would grow to love others as well.
May we embrace
those whose actions we cannot understand,
those whose stories we cannot imagine,
those whose ways we find different and foreign.
Fill us with your abundant love,
that your hope for peace among all your children
would fill us and flow from us,
through our prayers, words and deeds,
and be realized in this world.
