You've Called Us Together, O God, by Your Grace

Representative Text

You’ve called us together, O God, by your grace;
In grateful obedience, we’ve come to this place.
Our new common mission has only begun;
We’re learning the blessings of serving as one.

Refrain:
We are called! We are freed!
We are baptized as one.
In the Church, all we need
Can be found in your Son!
With Christ to unite us, and born from above,
We witness together to your wondrous love.

We’re one in the faith, and in creeds that we share,
In worship and sacraments, scripture and prayer.
We’re one in our seeking to follow Christ’s way,
In Spirit-led ministry, day after day.

Refrain

There’s much to rejoice in, yet much to be done;
While some are excluded, we can’t live as one.
May we as your churches uniting now see
That justice is needed for true unity.

Refrain
