Lyrics

The things that hurt, whatever’s cruel,
must all be set aside,
if we would work for God’s world
or in God’s love reside.

God grant us grace to trust in life,
in life and pow’r to heal,
to struggle hard for justice now
and strike a better deal.

God help us put far from us
the tools of death and hate,
and let us truly love this world,
before it is too late,

The homeless poor amongst us wait
for sharing to begin.
The silent lost and disappeared
accuse our silent sin.

Empower us, most gracious God,
to champion your poor,
and witness to your gospel thrust
and face our judgment hour.

God help us put far from us
the tools of death and hate,
and let us truly love this world,
before it is too late,
