O God, in Christ you call us

Tune: Aurelia

1 O God, in Christ you call us to witness to yourngrace —
To share the life you give us in every time and  lace.
So many things divide us — yet we are not our own; For we belong to Jesus who prayed, "May they be one."

2 In Christ is our salvation; in him you've set us free —
We make this proclamation in bold humility.
Your image is in others who follow different ways; Together, seeking justice, we offer you our praise.

3 In Christ, we're bound together; in him we find your peace.
Yet even as we gather, the wounds of war increase. Where terror brings division, God, make us brave to say our churches share a vision of Jesus' peaceful way.

4 In Christ, the poor and hungry are shown they matter, too —
And where your church has plenty, you give us work to do.
Now may we put in practice the faith that we
declare, Seek economic justice, and find new ways to share.

5 In Christ, you bless creation and show this
planet's worth;
May every congregation find ways to tend the earth. Now fill us with your Spirit, that we, as one, may be
A faithful, loving witness to all humanity.

Hymn - God, with joy we look around us
(Tune – Regent Square)
1 God, with joy we look around us
At your world's diversity.
Folk of every kind surround us
And you call your church to see:
All are made in your own image!
All are people whom you love!

2 In the times we've hurt each other,
Lord, we've hurt the ones you bless.
Hating sister, cursing brother,
We've denied what you express:
All are made in your own image!
All are people whom you love!

​3 God, you sent a Savior to us,
Breaking walls that would divide.
By your Spirit, now work through us
As we witness side by side:
All are made in your own image!
All are people whom you love!

Hymn – Emmaus-bound on Easter Day
1  Emmaus-bound on Easter Day,
Two travellers walked along the way.
They'd once had hope, but hope had died
When you, O Lord, were crucified.
2  When you appeared beside the two,
They could not see that it was you;
But as they talked and shared their pain,
You gave them hope and joy again.

3   For as you spoke to them God's word,
Explaining all they'd seen and heard,
They understood what God had done
And that a new day had begun.

4  They shared their home; you broke the bread.
They saw you, risen from the dead!
That moment's grace helped them to see
The gift of God's eternity.

​5  In scripture and at table, too,
O Risen Lord, may we know you.
And may your presence give us grace
To share God's love in every place.
