Speak now, O God, to hearts unmoved and cold;
warn us as prophets did in days of old.
Anoint us messengers with tongues of flame,
called forth to love and serve in Jesus' name.
O grant us wisdom, Lord, your will to see;
show us the path of true humility.
May we do justly, led by mercy's hand,
obedient to your Spirit's high command.
Guide now our feet to ministries of love;
grant us compassion like to yours above.
Cause us to set the blind and captive free
to find in Christ the Lord their liberty.
Nerve us, O Lord, to face the times of strain;
our hands in loyal work of love sustain.
Help us to live, with Christ-like vision clear,
in partnership, to bring your kingdom near.
