622. You're Our Strength and Motivation

1 You're our strength and motivation,
Christ, you send us out to serve.
We hold back, but your salvation
give us energy and nerve.
You still fill us with your Spirit;
lift us up on eagle's wings.
give your call, we gladly hear it;
in your work our spirit sings.

2 You make us rejoice in serving,
giving strength where we had none;
certain tasks had seemed unnerving,
but you've proven you're the one
who gives gifts of love and power,
confidence and self-control.
Fill us now, this very hour;
help us reach your kingdom's goal.

3 Holy Spirit, you are always
in our hearts and in our lives;
leading both in ease and hard days,
working so that God's love thrives.
Make us all you have intended;
lay our hesitance aside,
help us give till life has ended,
so that Christ is glorified.
