Take Us As We Are, O God

Representative Text

1
Take us as we are, O God, and claim us as your own.
As once you chose to tell your love in human flesh
and bone,
so let our lives be used to make your saving
purpose known.
2
Bless us for your service, Lord; no power we devise
will ever give us strength enough or make us truly
wise,
yet by your promise we can know the peace your
3
Break us open to disclose how brokenness can
heal,
wherever broken loaves suffice to give a crowd a
meal
and graves break open to release new life from
death’s dread seal.
4
Give us to the world you love, as light and salt and
yeast,
that we may nourish in your name the last, the lost,
the least,
until at length you call us all to your unending feast.
