Christ, you call us all to service,
call us all who follow you;
plant in us a deep commitment
all your work and will to do.
Fire a passion for your justice,
in us kindle love of peace;
help us heal the brokenhearted,
to the captive bring release.
Teach us how to work together,
brothers, sisters, side by side,
equal partners in the struggle,
in the cause of truth allied.
To each one some gift is given,
man or woman, young or old--
help us use each skill and talent
your great purpose to unfold.
Let us be a servant people,
reconciling, ending strife,
seeking ways more just of sharing
and of ord'ring human life.
Fill us with a glowing vision
of this world as it should be;
send us forth to change that vision
into blest reality.
