God, we bless you for our freedoms,
liberty of life and thought,
liberty from fear and hunger,
daily granted, dearly bought,
ways that we are free to choose,
earth that we are free to use.
God, we bless you for the people,
prophet people, standing tall
when our human rights are threatened,
when the weak go to the wall,
where oppression thunders by
and another's freedoms die.
God, we ask to be forgiven
for the liberties denied,
when our view of race or gender
makes us woefully one-eyed,
when the freedoms we possess
are the systems that oppress.
God, we bless you for the choices
still you offer humankind,
liberation by the Spirit
in the charter you designed:
Love and Freedom, Love that saves,
we your children, not your slaves.
