Praise the God Who Changes Places

Praise the God who changes places,
       leaves the lofty seat,
welcomes us with warm embraces,
       stoops to wash our feet.
              Refrain: Friends, be strong!
              Hold your heads high!
              Freedom is our song! Alleluia!

Praise the Rabbi, speaking, doing
       all that God intends,
dying, rising, faith renewing,
       calling us his friends.

Praise the Breath of Love, whose freedom
       spreads our waking wings,
lifting every blight and burden
       till our spirit sings:

Praise, until we join the singing
       far beyond our sight,
with the Ending-and-Beginning,
       dancing in the light.
