17. Good Friends, Rejoice, Be Glad and Sing

Good friends, rejoice, be glad and sing!
Lift up your hearts, let voices ring!
Christ Jesus has changed everything!
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Lines drawn between us, hard and fast,
divisions that we thought would last,
have all been banished to the past!
Alleluia! Alleluia!

No longer blind, we now can see
God has created us to be
one open, loving family.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Praise God, Creator, Spirit, Son,
that, out of many, we are one!
New life in love has now begun!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
