God is here as we Your people
Meet to offer praise and prayer
May we find in fuller measure
What it is in Christ we share
Here as in the world around us
All our varied skills and arts
Wait the coming of the Spirit
Into open minds and hearts

Here are symbols to remind us
Of our lifelong need of grace
Here are table font and pulpit
Here the cross has central place
Here in honesty of preaching
Here in silence as in speech
Here in newness and renewal
God the Spirit comes to each

Here our children find a welcome
In the Shepherd’s flock and fold
Here as bread and wine are taken
Christ sustains us as of old
Here the servants of the Servant
Seek in worship to explore
What it means in daily living
To believe and to adore

Lord of all of church and kingdom
In an age of change and doubt
Keep us faithful to the Gospel
Help us work Your purpose out
Here in this day’s dedication
All we have to give receive
We who cannot live without You
We adore You we believe
