New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Songs of Grace
New Hymns for God and Neighbor
Carolyn Winfrey Gillette
• July 2009
Sing a new song! The book, Songs of Grace, includes over 70 new hymns written to be sung to the tunes of many well loved and well known hymns. The new words offer expressions of hope, celebration, and spiritual enrichment. Accompanying each new hymn is a devotion or meditation to be used in reflection of the melodic prayers. The hymns are written to celebrate the ministry of a wide range of church activities, from older adult ministries and stewardship to social justice and many other topics in between.

She received a BA in Religion from Lebanon Valley College in Annville, Pennsylvania and her MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey.
