Hem us in, Lord

Hem of His Garment

Hem us in, Lord. Hem us in.

Fasten us securely in your hem of compassion and mercy.

Stitch our hearts together in strength and conviction.

Hem us in, Lord. Hem us in.

Embroider our souls with adoration and humility.

Join every nation, every people and every family in praise of God Most High.

Hem us in, Lord. Hem us in.

Interlace our hands with solidarity in your Son’s Precious Name.

Sew infinite threads of grace.

Hem us in, Lord. Hem us in.

Weave our differences into a tapestry of forgiveness and blessing.

Braid our misunderstandings and misgivings into chords of generosity.

Hem us in, Lord. Hem us in.

Knit our hearts with the poor, the fatherless, and the forsaken.

Mend our brokenness and heal our hurts.

Hem us in, Lord. Hem us in.

Bind up our fears of yesterday, today and tomorrow and transform each worry into new visions of joy, contentment and triumph in our Kingdom that is to come!

Hem us in, Lord. Hem us in.

Unite us with our courageous and true brothers and sisters who now touch the hem of your garment.

Secure us to the Cross of Christ.

Hem us in, Lord. Hem us in.

 Hem us in, Lord. Hem us in.

 Hem us in, Lord.

Amen
