The Son of God, our Christ, the Word, the WayAuthor: Edward M. Blumenfeld

1 The Son of God, our Christ, the Word, the Way,
Shared human life and toiled throughout the day;
From common folk he called his friends to be
Co-workers in his sacred ministry.
2 In ev'ry test, in trials manifold,
These servants witnessed, by their faith made bold;
And with the gifts and talents which they brought,
The Church was founded and God's message taught.
3 Today, as then, Christ summons us to dare
To follow boldly and his work to share,
Declaring to the world his holy name
And showing mercy to the sick and lame.
4 In city street, in town, or on the soil,
May each serve Christ in faithful daily toil,
And in each thought and kindly word and deed,
Obey Christ's call and go where he shall lead.
5 Where'er we find our witness should be made,
Whate'er our task, the Lord will be our aid,
And we will gladly give for him our best
And find each task divinely sent and blessed.
