32. Our God, We Sing and Celebrate

Our God, we sing and celebrate! Your grace to us is clear!
For we recall your faithful love for all your people here.
We’ve worked together, yet we know it’s not the things we’ve done,
But you, who give us life and hope in sending us your Son.

Lord Jesus, in this broken world, you teach us how to heal,
And in a world where pride abounds, you call your church to kneel.
Amid the hate, we’re called to love; amid the fear, to pray.
You call us to live differently; transform us every day!

You give us gifts to be your church; we follow as you call.
Here some are teachers, others preach, to speak your truth to all.
Some reach to help the sick and poor, while some are called to lead;
Yet by your Spirit, we are one, in word, in prayer, in deed!

How easy to look back and see your graceful, constant care,
And yet we’re called to look ahead, to grow, to serve, to dare!
What is your will in this new day? God, help us pray and search,
For as we seek to walk with you, we are your faithful church.
