We are yours, all yours, blessed Triune God,
all our lives, all our thanks, all our praise,
all our hesitations, all our grumbling, all our fears,
we give it all to you, with all our bodies, and minds, and voices.
You have told us, Great God, what is required:
to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with You.
God of Creation
God of Salvation
God of Wind and Flame
The people on the earth are shaking every day, O God.
Jesus, your body is quaking,
Sometimes from fear, sometimes in pain,
Sometimes from our refusal to feel and hear the pain of others.

Nickolas Campbell, pastor of Nelson Memorial United Methodist Church in Boonville, Missouri, has arranged this all-musical setting of the Great Thanksgiving for Ordinary Time. It incorporates the music of familiar hymn tunes. Musical versions for melody-only and complete accompaniment, both with words, are provided in pdf, with page numbers from The United Methodist Hymnal in parentheses. Ordinary Time includes the two periods of the liturgical year between Baptism of the Lord and the day before Ash Wednesday and the time between the Monday after Pentecost and the Saturday before the First Sunday of Advent.Musical Prayer of Great Thanksgiving for Ordinary Time »
