Thank you, God, for all your servants
Who proclaim your light each day.
Brave and bold, like John, they bless us,
Pointing us to Jesus’ way.
They proclaim your kingdom’s nearness
In the things they do and say.
May we live in that tradition;
Fill us with integrity.
Take away our vain ambition;
Keep us in humility.
Make us faithful in our mission
As we serve Christ joyfully.
