Lord, what a cloud of witnesses
Surrounds us as we work and pray!
Their faithful, loving service is
An inspiration every day.
We live in towns that others made;
We harvest what we did not sow—
And others sweated, labored, prayed
To build Christ’s church in which we grow.
Your Spirit gives us memory;
Now give your church clear vision, too.
Reformed, reforming, may we be
A church that seeks to follow you.
