1 We are your people,
Spirit of grace,
you dare to make us
to all your neighbors,
Christ's living voice, hands and face.

2 Joined in community,
treasured and fed,
may we discover
gifts in each other,
willing to lead and be led.

3 Rich in diversity,
help us to live
closer than neighbors,
open to strangers,
able to clash and forgive.

4 Glad of tradition,
help us to see
in all life's changing,
where you are leading,
where our best efforts should be.

5 Give, as we venture
justice and care
(peaceful, resisting, waiting, or risking)
wisdom to know when and where.

6 Spirit, unite us,
make us by grace,
willing and ready,
Christ's living body,
loving the whole human race.
