Original text and translations
1. Lord of the covenant, binding your people
Into community, help us to be
Strong in your service and faithful in witness
To your sure purpose that all should be free.
2. Free from oppression by power or prejudice,
Free from the hatred that tears us apart,
Free to fulfill the potential you give us,
Free to sing praise to you with all our heart.
3. Lord of the covenant, calling your people
From every continent and every race,
Make us a people who gladly obey you,
Open our hearts to the work of your grace.
4. Open our eyes to your presence around us,
Open our ears to your transforming word,
Open our hearts to the love that surrounds us,
Open our mouths to proclaim you as Lord.
5. Lord of the covenant, sending your people
Out, filled with gratitude, joyful and strong,
Be in our hands, let them open to serve you,
Be in our mouths, let your praise be our song.
6. Praise for the scriptures that guide and inspire us,
Praise for the love that sustains us always,
Praise for the ministry which you have given us,
Lord of the covenant, glory and praise.
