In this place, O Lord, to you we pray
Tiny room, grand edifice
Nothing more than shelter is this
Not of bricks or mortar, wood or clay
Built of those who live your word
On the rock of Peter secured

We, we are your church
Conceived in faith, patterned in love
Drawn to your plan, framed in your spirit
We the Church of Christ

Neither Greek nor Jew, not slave nor free
Woman, man are all the same
Joined as one with hearts aflame
Many colors, many races we
In your eyes, divisions cease
We the Church, united in peace


At this table Lord, we share your meal
Finest grain your flesh, our bread
Finest grapes the blood you shed
At this banquet we your presence feel
Now we feast by your decree:
"Do all this in memory of me"


Pray we now, O Lord, our faults to heal
Purify us by your breath
Send to us your life beyond death
On our heads, your holy spirit seal
Baptize us into new birth
Send us forth with light for the earth
