Sometimes Paul was Right

Sometimes Paul was Right

Holy Lord,
it’s true –
in You
we live
and move
and have our being.

Infused with Your Spirit,
taking delight in Your World,
we sing and dance
we dream and hope
we work and play
we worship and praise.

Inspired by Your Life,
we reach out
to those in need;
we speak out
against injustice;
we lift up
our voices in prayer.

Inflamed by Your Love
we care passionately,
forgive willingly,
give generously,
love abundantly, and
bless unceasingly.

Confident of Your Promise
we fearlessly proclaim
God’s love for us,
and show forth
our love and deep concern
for every aspect of Creation.

Holy One,
it is true:
all other things
will pass away,
but faith, hope and love abide;
and the greatest of these is love.
