Living Lord of love's dominion

Living Lord of love's dominion,
sovereign Savior, bless your church;
call us still as your disciples--
loving, serving, while we search.
Gathered: feed our deepest being
prophet's truth and godly nerve;
scattered: let our lives' frustration
nourish others while we serve.

Visit towns and inner cities;
penetrate our steel and stone
with a love that melts our coldness,
making mission here our own.
We will seek you, love transfigured,
in our neighbor's need until
deep within our daily service
love draws forth our utmost skill.

With your bread, your wine, your Spirit,
nurture us for your intent;
let your will be our vocation
lived as song and sacrament.
May compassion lead to service
till we join the saints above;
grant us hope for each tomorrow;
fill our faith with vibrant love!
