I am a child of God, the One who made and keeps me.
By God's free gift of love, God's child I always will be.
Forever I belong, I know that this is true;
and with my mind and heart, I trust and love God, too.
God's image is in us, the people of creation.
No matter where we live, we share a close relation.
God's covenant is sure, eternal word for all
who follow in God's way and answer to God's call.
God never turns from us, not even in our sinning.
God loves and waits for us to claim a new beginning.
By opening our hearts, we then prepare the way
for God's love to come in and guide us every day.
I thank God for that love and all the world around me,
the seen and unseen things, and promised things that will be.
Through worship, trust, and prayer, may I reflect God's will.
Let love be seen in me as I God's word fulfill.
