May the poor have peace

May the poor have peace

May the hearts of the rich be filled

May our land be healed

and God’s freedom reign

 

May the world see our witness

May we be the church

We want to see in the world

 

May the poor have peace

May the hearts of the rich be filled

May we all turn to each other

with God’s love

And not our own power

 

May we listen with our hearts

And hear the stories of our neighbors

May we be the church

We want to see in the world

God is here with us,

God is among us

 

God saves those who call on his name

Everyone in the world the same

May our land be healed

And God’s freedom reign

 

May our land be healed

And God’s freedom reign

May we be your earthly sanctuary

We offer you the burden that we carry

A pain offering we give to you

 

Of this world that is hurting

This hurting world that groans

For your healing touch

Heal our land Lord,

Lord heal our land.
