Where Charity and Love, God is There

This morning’s blessing from the Divine Office:

Ubi caritas et amor Deus ibi est
(Where charity and love, God is there)

We feel your presence here
Your love and comfort near
As you welcome us.
Fill our every need
Hurry gracious host
To those we meet


And so we come to you
We need to be renewed
Take our gifts O Lord
Use us for your good
Help us love each other as we should


Help us your people Lord
That we may serve the world
Wash away our sins
Cleanse us from within
Send us forth to do your will


So as we live each day
Lord help us that we may
Keep our hearts and minds
Open to your love
That charity and love in us abound.

(Chorus x 2).
