18. As Abraham and Sarah

1 As Abraham and Sarah
once heeded your command,
and left their home to journey
into a strange, new land,
God, may we too be ready
to listen when you call,
and find the faith to answer
that we may give our all.

2 As Moses led the Hebrews
across the desert sand,
through wilderness and danger
to reach the Promised Land,
God, may we bravely follow
wherever you may lead,
and find hope in your promise
to care for every need.

3 As Jesus welcomed children,
restored sight to the blind,
forgave the sins of strangers,
and healed a troubled mind,
God, may we show your mercy,
compassion, kindness too,
and find Christ’s love embodied
in all we say and do.

4 For faith to make life’s journey,
for hope that leads us on,
for love that yields compassion
and seeks to right each wrong,
God, for these gifts we thank you,
and offer you our praise.
With thankful hearts we promise
to serve you all our days.
