We Are Your People

Saving God, we are your people
yet the world cannot see this.

We are your children
and fail to live in peace.

We are your voices
and choose to be silent.

We are your hands and feet
and walk a different road.

Forgive us, for ignoring your love,
for brushing aside your hand
and trusting our own wisdom.

Enable us to worship you
in spirit and in truth,
to bring to you our joyful songs
in the everyday moments of our lives;
that your name might be glorified
through our words and lives.
Amen.
