Christe Eleison, have mercy.

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

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

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

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