Have we any gift worth giving to the Giver of all
What would please the ever-living, one true God
from whom life springs?
Not dead gold or merchandise, but a living sacrifice:
worship both profound and freeing, serving God

Christ by costly incarnation dwelt in human time
and place
to reveal to all creation God’s redeeming love and
so are we in flesh and bone given means of making
through the web of daily living God’s own pattern of

Let us shun the selfish merit worldly wisdom has
but renewed by God’s own Spirit be transformed in
heart and mind;
by past mercies taught and led, let us seek the path
trusting that, like those before us, God will guide us
and restore us.
