Sing a song of praising,
Mighty deeds proclaim!
Sing of love amazing
Hearts with grace aflame!

Sing with many voicings
Drawn to one accord:
Jubilant rejoicing
In our wond’rous Lord!

Bring a skill and passion,
Bring a gentle heart,
Bring a will to fashion
A restoring art.

Sift the many stories,
Ev’ry voice attend,
Gather up the glories,
Build a joyful blend.

From the best traditions
Weave a faithful core;
Heed the Spirit’s visions
Lifting up the poor;

Celebrate the mission,
Hope and peace advance,
Praising each addition
To the ancient dance.

Set the world to blazing,
Join to swell the throng
Gathered for the raising
Of the Lord’s new song.

Bring your talents all!
Craft a fresh and true song
Boldly claim your call!
