Come, welcome Christ in every face
that enters through our open doors,
as old and young together trace
a faithful vision that explores.
Our varicolored faces glow
with God's vitality and health,
as all in love and wisdom grow
and poverty breaks bread with wealth.
With Jesus may we each display
a kind and sympathetic heart,
as all, including "straight" and "gay,"
tear down the walls that set apart.
Good Spirit, move us, set us free
to rise from comfortable rest
and sing of Christ as all agree
to send the song through East and West.
With worship, service, praise and prayer,
rejecting bitterness and rage,
we'll contradict the world's despair
with love that reaches every age.
