Bible Reading Revelation ch 22 v 1-5
Hymn S the F 377 Down the mountain the river flows
The River of Life
Everlasting and Unfathomable God, God of Water, of Light, of all Creation,
Blazing light shining forth,
radiant light reflecting on the river.
Water tumbling, cascading, rushing,
reflecting the light like diamonds.
River flowing wide, immense and free.
Light, water, love, life
washes over me
soaks into my very being.
God, wellspring of love and life
Flowing out, reaching out
to arms stretched up in praise and hope,
embracing all in pain and need.
Through the city streets, through the desert,
Through the lush countryside, through the war torn land, and on.
Washing away tears, bringing joy and laughter and peace.
Oh God of life and love
Thank you. Amen
