All who call upon the Lord’s name: Hear the news! You will be saved.
God, your church sings out, confessing: Love is stronger than the grave.
Christ is Lord! In our believing, in our times of praise and prayer,
May we find your grace unending and good news to gladly share.
All who call upon you humbly from a church’s quiet pew
Will receive the peace you offer as they put their trust in you.
All who bow their heads, confessing, all who watch and wait and pray,
Will receive your graceful blessing: You bring wholeness every day.
All who call in trust upon you from an office, farm or store,
From a schoolroom or a kitchen, all who seek you, rich or poor,
All who struggle with believing, all who cry out in despair,
All who seek you, in their needing, will find joy, Lord! You are there.
God, the treasure of your kingdom is that all may know your grace.
For your love for all your children can’t be bound by time or place.
May the gift of your salvation send us out beyond these pews;
God, renew our dedication to proclaim your gospel news.
