Come, Dare to Be

Original Swedish Text by Anders Frostenson

Music by Ron Klusmeier
English Translation by Fred Kaan
Tune Name: WESTBANK

Lyrics as Poetry

Come dare to be
all that you are in Christ;
be what his loving,
be what his thinking
see in your person:
you are eternal light.All that you have,
he gave to you at first;
challenge and courage,
will and commitment,
spring from one fountain:
so you will never thirst.From yoke or bond
his love has set you free;
free to love others,
praising and serving
Christ who is present
in human lives we see.Even today
you are what you will be;
judged and forgiven,
from death arisen,
take up life’s fulness,
for Christ has made you free!
