Hymn

“EMBRACING”

“Under your cross we stand
Hearing the cry of your world
Our desire is to embrace
The wounds of humanity

You know we are
Vulnerable and poor
But we know that your grace 
makes us strong, makes us new
so, sends us out to the world

We will speak your WORD that holds your HOPE
We will live COMMUNION sowing LOVE
We will walk TOGETHER as your CHURCH
Seeking to INCLUDE everyone

We will share our LIVES, our TIME, our DOUBTS
Learning from each OTHER on the ROAD
We will trust the POWER OF YOUR SPIRIT
Knowing we DEPEND on you, we PRAY:

May your WILL be done
May our HEARTS FORGIVE
AND LEAD us all BACK TO YOU
And LEAD us all, LORD OUR GOD, LEAD US BACK to you.”
