Hymn/Song Information

A COVENANT PRAYER




Your people gather worshiping;
We hold your standard high,
Declare Your sov’reign majesty
O’er earth and sea and sky.
Our hearts reach out; Your love rebounds
To people ev’rywhere.
Help us, O Lord, to show how You
Hold all within Your care.


We sing Your praise and reach out hands
To those whom justice fails;
May we stand firm when hope grows dim
That right will soon prevail.
When hungry souls around the globe
Cry out in human need.
Our hands, responding to Your will,
Shall now their hunger feed.


Where ever men scorn other men,
Or women are despised.
Let us shine forth your light of truth,
Make freedom realized.
Where children suff’r needlessly
In illness, pain, or fear,
May our strong hands reach out to them,
To show You hold them dear.


We thank You, Father for Your Son,
The Christ, our one true Lord;
We thank You for the Holy Ghost
And for Your precious Word.
Lord you’ve given such great gifts to us,
Let us give these back to You:
Our faith and love and loyalty,
Until your world’s made new.
