Author: Erik Routley, 1917-1982 Hymnal: Evangelical Lutheran Worship #724 (2006) Meter: 220.127.116.11 Hymnal Title: Evangelical Lutheran Worship Lyrics: 1 All who love and serve your city,
all who bear its daily stress,
all who cry for peace and justice,
all who curse and all who bless,
2 In your day of loss and sorrow,
in your day of helpless strife,
honor, peace, and love retreating,
seek the Lord, who is your life.
3 In your day of wealth and plenty,
wasted work and wasted play,
call to mind the word of Jesus,
"You must work while it is day."
4 For all days are days of judgment,
and the Lord is waiting still,
drawing near a world that spurns him,
off'ring peace from Calv'ry's hill.
5 Risen Lord, shall yet the city
be the city of despair?
Come today, our judge, our glory.
Be its name “The Lord is there!" Topics: Justice, Peace; City; Daily Life and Work; Justice, Peace Languages: English Tune Title: NEW ORLEANS
All who love and serve your city
