50. God, When You Called Our Church by Grace

God, when you called our church by grace,
This land was such a different place.
Yet what you spoke remains the same:
“I’ll be with you! Go in my name!”

Your promise is for everyone:
You call us here; your word is true!
We’ll be a faithful church for you!

Lord Jesus Christ, our cornerstone,
You meet us here; we’re not alone!
Through times of joy, through tears long-wept,
You are God’s love, God’s promise kept.

Your promise is for everyone:
You love us all, you make us new!
We’ll be a loving church for you!

O Holy Spirit, wind and flame,
You send us out in Jesus’ name.
You give us gifts that we may share
God’s love and justice everywhere.

Your promise is for everyone:
You give us gifts, and work to do!
We’ll be a serving church for you!
