Hymn ELW 729 – “The Church of Christ, in Every Age” 

The church of Christ, in ev’ry age 
beset by change, but Spirit-led, 
must claim and test its heritage 
and keep on rising from the dead. 

Across the world, across the street, 
the victims of injustice cry 
for shelter and for bread to eat, 
and never live before they die. 

Then let the servant church arise, 
a caring church that longs to be 
a partner in Christ’s sacrifice, 
and clothed in Christ’s humanity. 

For he alone, whose blood was shed, 
can cure the fever in our blood, 
and teach us how to share our bread 
and feed the starving multitude. 

We have no mission but to serve 
in full obedience to our Lord; 
to care for all, without reserve, 
and spread his liberating word.
