Come, let us honor those who led the way;
women of Scripture witnessing each day;
teacher and leader, queen and prophetess,
through vital ministry their faith confess.
In years of turmoil, bitterness and pain,
women have sought equality to gain,
no longer dwell upon the past with tears,
pledge new commitment for the future years.
Praise now and thanks unto our God we bring;
lifting each voice, with courage let us sing;
together we'll not from our purpose swerve,
building the wholeness of the Church we serve.
