O praise the gracious power




O praise the gracious power
that tumbles walls of fear
and gathers in one house of faith
all strangers far and near.

We praise you, Christ!
Your cross has made us one!



O praise persistent truth
that opens fisted minds
and eases from their anxious clutch
the prejudice that blinds:

We praise you, Christ!
Your cross has made us one!



O praise inclusive love,
encircling every race,
oblivious to gender, wealth,
to social rank or place:

We praise you, Christ!
Your cross has made us one!



O praise the word of faith
that claims us as God's own,
a living temple built on Christ,
our rock and cornerstone:

We praise you, Christ!
Your cross has made us one!



O praise the tide of grace
that laps at every shore
with visions of a world at peace,
no longer bled by war:

We praise you, Christ!
Your cross has made us one!



O praise the power, the truth,
the love, the word, the tide.
Yet more than these,
O praise their source,
praise Christ the crucified:

We praise you, Christ!
Your cross has made us one!



O praise the living Christ
with faith's bright songful voice!
Announce the gospel to the world
and with these words rejoice:

We praise you, Christ!
Your cross has made us one!
