God, we sing and worship, joining friends and neighbors,
Sharing with the ones we love the joy of your good news.
We have heard your gospel through our church’s labors,
Through loving lives of those who share our pews.
What a joyful gift to learn the faith of others;
Yet we know the greater joy of faith that is our own.
May we know your love for all your sons and daughters:
We live in you, God, we are not alone.
You have given Jesus, you have sent your Spirit;
You have given water as a sign that we belong.
You have given love and called your church to share it;
Through bread and chalice, you have made us strong.
Now we come before you in the faith you gave us,
In the faith that was your gift when we were all baptized.
Jesus is our Lord! You sent him here to save us!
With grateful hearts, we give you now our lives.
