Verse 1:
      Em                       Bm7
As we come before You with the needs of our world,
   Em                           Bm7
We confess our failures and our sin;
        Em                     Bm7
For our words are many yet our deeds have been few,
        Em                       Bm7
Fan the fire of compassion once again.

Verse 2:
         Em                    Bm7
When the cries of victims go unheard in the land,
        Em                     Bm7
And the scars of war refuse to heal,
        Em                     Bm7
Will we stand for justice to empower the weak
           Em                         Bm7
Till their bonds of oppression are no more?

Verse 3:
      Em                        Bm7
If we love our God with all our heart, mind and strength,
       Em                         Bm7
And we love our neighbours as ourselves,
          Em                        Bm7
Then this law of love will heal the nations of earth
        Em                         Bm7
And the glory of Christ will be revealed.

Verse 4:
        Em                   Bm7
Lord, renew our vision to be Christ where we live,
         Em                  Bm7
To reach out in mercy to the lost;
         Em                     Bm7
For each cup of kindness to the least in our midst
      Em                         Bm7
Is an offering of worship to the throne.
