We Are Your People

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Brian Wren

Lyrics as Poetry

We are your people: Spirit of grace,
you dare to make us to all our neighbours,
Christ’s living voice, hands and face.

Joined in community, treasured and fed,
may we discover gifts in each other,
willing to lead and be led.

Rich in diversity, help us to live
closer than neighbours, open to strangers,
able to clash and forgive.

Glad of tradition, help us to see
in all life’s changing, where you are leading,
where our best efforts should be.

Give, as we venture justice and care
(peaceful, resisting, waiting or risking)
wisdom to know when and where.

Spirit unite us, make us, by grace,
willing and ready, Christ’s living body,
loving the whole human race.
