Great is the wonder that we live at all
on this bright earth, so fragile and so small;
One mote among the countless stars above,
where we receive eternal life and love.
Thanks be to God in whom all hearts are blessed:
One drum that sound sin ev'ry human breast;
One faith, one fire, one new community,
one song we join in perfect harmony.
Fill us, O Lord, with spirit-given peace.
Let grace abound, life-giving hope increase.
Show us the Christ in ev'ry human face,
fashioned by love in ev'ry form and race.
Lead us beyond the narrow paths we know
into the fields, where ripened harvests grow.
Teach us to bring the healing word and deed
from your abundance to a world in need.
