For you we want to live and love,
And work and care and worship.
In you we find our meaning,
Identity, worth and purpose.
With you we make it through
The good, the bad and the ordinary.
To you we pause now and lift
Our eyes, our hearts, our minds,
Our wills, strength, songs and silence.
Trusting you are here, on our side,
Interested and understanding,
Listening to the cries and groans,
Whispers, worship and longings
Of our open and crowded hearts.
