We’re part of the blessing of God’s new creation;
The world may not see it, but we know it’s true.
For God in Christ Jesus has given salvation;
The old life is gone! God makes everything new!
We’re part of the blessing, for we are God’s children.
We’re loved and forgiven! We’re welcomed back home.
And now we are called to be part of God’s kingdom,
To welcome the children God claims as his own.

A man had two sons and the younger said to him,
"I want my inheritance now! It is mine!"
His father divided the property with him;
That son spent it all and was soon feeding swine.
But then he remembered his father providing;
He thought he would beg to go home as a slave.
His dad saw him coming as he stood there waiting;
He ran out to greet him and welcome and save.

We’re part of the blessing of God’s new creation;
As we have been welcomed, may we share God’s grace.
There’s no room for grumbling in God’s gracious kingdom;
There’s no place to question God’s loving embrace.
The outcast, the sinner, the poor, struggling mother,
The addict, the seeker, the one who is lost —
God welcomes them home and invites them to dinner —
God runs out to greet us through Christ and his cross.
