Texts

When Stephen, full of power and grace

Ye, humble sinner, in whose breast

Our Cities Cry to You, O God

Our cities cry to you, O God,
From out their pain and strife;
You made us for Yourself alone,
But we choose alien life.
Our goals are pleasure, gold, and power;
Injustice stalks our earth;
In vain we seek for rest, for joy,
For sense of human worth.
