Lord, as we rise to leave the shell of worshipAuthor: Fred Kaan (1968)
Published in 7 hymnals
1 God, as we rise to leave the shell of worship,
called to the risk of unprotected living,
willing to be at one with all your people,
we ask for courage.
2 For all the strain with living interwoven,
for the demands each day will make upon us,
and for the love we owe the modern city,
Lord, make us cheerful.
3 Give us an eye for openings to serve you;
make us alert when calm is interrupted,
ready and wise to use the unexpected;
sharpen our insight.
4 Life from our life the blanket of convention;
give us the nerve to lose ourselves to others;
be with your church in death and resurrection,
God of all ages.
