Hymn - Open Wide Your Heavens!
("In The Bleak Midwinter")
1 Open wide your heavens! Let your name
be known!
So the world will know, Lord, we are not
alone.
You who once did awesome deeds — show
your presence here!
Open wide your heavens! Let us know
you're near.

2 In this Advent season, Lord, we wait and
pray:
Why do you seem hidden? Are you far
away?
Though your faithfulness is sure, we have
often sinned;
Like the leaves we're fading, carried by the
wind.

3 Carried by our culture, we seek more and more;
As we long to prosper, we forget the poor.
As we yearn for earthly things, we forget
your name.
Open wide your heavens! Make us whole
again.

4 Lord, you are the potter; we are simply
clay.
Take the lives we offer; mold us more each
day.
In this holy Advent time, show us all anew:
You reach out and bless us, when we wait
for you.
