Community of Christ

                     Community of Christ,
              who make the Cross your own,
       live out your creed and risk your life
for God alone:
the God who wears your face,
       to whom all worlds belong,
              whose children are of every race
                     and every song.

                     Community of Christ,
              look past the Church's door
       and see the refugee, the hungry,
and the poor.
Take hands with the oppressed,
       the jobless in your street,
              take towel and water, that you wash
                     your neighbor's feet.

                     Community of Christ,
              through whom the word must sound --
       cry out for justice and for peace
the whole world round:
disarm the powers that war
       and all that can destroy,
              turn bombs to bread, and tears of anguish
                     into joy.

                     When menace melts away,
              so shall God's will be done,
       the climate of the world be peace
and Christ its Sun;
our currency be love
       and kindliness our law,
              our food and faith be shared as one
