61. Lift Your Heart to the Lord

Lift your heart to the Lord
and make this a day of rejoicing.
God is our strength and song:
glory and praise to his name!

1 Here God's life-giving word
once more is proclaimed to his people,
uplifting those who are down,
challenging all with its truth. (Refrain)

2 All those baptized into Christ
share the glory of his resurrection,
dying with him unto sin,
walking in newness of life. (Refrain)

3 Summoned by Jesus' command,
all his people draw near to his table,
gladly to meet with their Lord,
known in the breaking of bread. (Refrain)
