Heavenly God, as you open our minds;
May the Spirit move amongst us to give us more signs;
As the baptismal waters surround us all,
Let no-one, even Gentiles, be separate from Your call.
Those of us who love Jesus the Christ;
And those who know only the God of all might;
In knowing just one we may know the other,
It’s much like experiencing the love of a newborn’s mother.
The Spirit who comes to drive our cause;
The cause of Jesus who’s above all our laws;
Who sprung so humanly from water and blood,
Who spurs on our passion that comes from God’s love.
So through the Spirit and because of God’s love;
Jesus gives us a path to abide in that love;
The love that God gives is here just for you,
If you follow God’s ways, each moment feels new.
Not tainted by fear, nor threats nor pain,
Just constant reminders to help those without gain,
To love as you’re loved, to give as God does,
To move from servants to friends without a fuss.
My God, you picked them and you picked me too;
And for that I promise to always be true,
To gather and search and do my best,
To love your children with the Spirit’s zest.
