1
Have we any gift worth giving to the Giver of all
things?
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

2
Christ by costly incarnation dwelt in human time
and place
to reveal to all creation God’s redeeming love and
grace;
so are we in flesh and bone given means of making
known
through the web of daily living God’s own pattern of
self-giving.

3
Let us shun the selfish merit worldly wisdom has
defined,
but renewed by God’s own Spirit be transformed in
heart and mind;
by past mercies taught and led, let us seek the path
ahead,
trusting that, like those before us, God will guide us
and restore us.
