Come All You Blessed Children of God
4’50”

Come, All you blessed children of God.
Inherit the kingdom of heaven.

“When I was hungry, you gave me to eat;
When I was thirsty you gave me to drink;
I was a strange and you took me in;
I was naked and you gave me clothing;
When I was sick you came to see me;
I was a prisoner and you cam to visit me.

Whenever you have done this for the least of your brothers and sisters
you have done this for me.”

Come, all you blessed children of God.
Come see the face of our God in all of creation.

Amen.
