Thank you for your invitation.
Thank you that we need not be
Nor all put together
To be included.
Give us faith to trust you
In the places where we do not see your hand,
At least not yet.
Swallow up our weakness in your grace
That your power may be unleashed
To love this weary world through us.
Free us from our fears
That we will not have enough,
That we will not be enough.
Let us rest in the security of You.
You alone are good and wise.
You alone deserve the honor
We heap on a thousand worthless things.
Teach us how to lay down our lives
And pick up our cross,
That our lives may have the measure of consequence
You’ve designed and you desire.
We breathe a quiet prayer of thanks
For a Savior whose mercy runs so deep
He would not let us go
Without a fight,
Who braved the fire of our rebellion
And came out the other side,
Wounded but Victorious,
With any and all who would have Him
Safe and sound within His arms.
We sing and spin in a joyful dance
That we are loved so recklessly,
May we have the courage
And conviction, Father God,
To love with such abandon.
