Lyrics

Dear Christ, uplifted from the earth,
your arms stretched out above
through every culture, every birth,
to draw an answering love.

Still east and west your love extends
and always, near and far,
you call and claim us as your friends
and love us as we are.

Where age and gender, class and race,
divide us to our shame,
you see a person and a face,
a neighbour with a name.

May we, accepted as we are,
yet called in grace to grow,
reach out to others, near and far,
your healing love to show.
