We celebrate a faith that is measured

not by the usual signs of greatness,

but by the marks of love;

And we celebrate the God who gives it.

 

We celebrate a love that is measured

not by romance or emotion,

but by acts of compassion and service;

And we celebrate the God who gives it.

 

We celebrate a life that is measured

not by the trappings of wealth or power,

but by the lives that are healed and enriched;

And we celebrate the God who gives it.

 

God, who measures every heart and life,

we praise you for the life that is revealed in Christ,

and for the Spirit who empowers us to follow

Christ’s example.

And we praise you for the love and grace

which we find in you, receive from you,

and against which we shall ultimately be measured.

 

Amen.
