30. What we have is freedom

1 What we have is freedom,
slaves we are no longer,
Christ has set us all free,
now we call Christ "Savior."

2 Yesu shares the Spirit,
who, by love, directs us,
saving all creation,
making peace with justice.

3 Victims of oppression,
poverty or victory."
those who stand by Yesu,
strengthened by God's power.

4 Faith shouts out in triumph,
"Christ has won the victory."
Those who stand by Yesu
share in Yesu's glory.

5 Let us use our freedom,
all our neighbors loving,
working with our Brother
and God's world transforming.
