Serve One Another in Love

Because we were sinners, Christ came to be
Savior and Servant and Lord.
Baptized in his name, made holy and free
His children are called to serve.

Refrain
Jesus who lived on the earth and who died
Jesus who rose and who reigns
Jesus has called us to walk in his ways
To serve one another in love.

In love we speak truth with words that are kind
Words that speak justice and peace.
The way that we live together’s a sign
Of God’s kingdom here on earth.

Refrain

When sisters and brothers sin and offend
Christians are called to forgive
As we ourselves daily trust and depend
On mercy from God above.

Refrain

We ask for God’s help, as we seek to serve
Neighbors both far and close by.
The Spirit empow’rs our gifts and transforms
Each kindly word and deed.

Refrain

No one shall be left in hunger or thirst
None left in lonely pain.
In love we recall the last shall be first
When God’s kingdom comes on earth.

Refrain
