Hymn: We Plant a Grain of Mustard Seed (New Beginnings)
We plant a grain of mustard seed, and in our faith we find the proof of God is love, indeed which blossoms from its kind; the proof of God is love, indeed, which blossoms from its kind.
Make love our purpose, love our aim, for love endures all things, and choosing love our lives will claim the peace forgiveness brings; and choosing love our lives will claim the peace forgiveness brings.
Our lives will be fulfilled and blessed if through the seeds we’ve sown and by the love that we profess the love of Christ is known; and by the love that we profess the love of Christ is known.
Lord’s Prayer: Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
Prayer for Princeton: O Eternal God, the source of life and light for all peoples, we pray you would endow this University with your grace and wisdom: give inspiration and understanding to those who teach and to those who learn; grant vision to its trustees and administrators; to all who work here and to all who bear her name give your guiding Spirit of sacrificial courage and loving service. Amen.
