Hymn ELW 546 – “To Be Your Presence”
To be your presence is our mission here,
to show compassion’s face and list’ning ear,
to be your heart of mercy ever near,
To be your presence is our mission bold,
to feed the poor and shelter homeless cold,
to be your hands of justice, right uphold,
To be your presence is our mission blest,
to speak for all the broken and oppressed,
to be your voice of hope, your love expressed,
We are your heart, O Christ, your hands and voice,
to serve your people is our call and choice,
and in this mission we, the church, rejoice,
