"Our God's true self is shown"--based on
Belhar Article 4--suggested tune: CANTEMOS AL SENOR, 67 67 D, with refrain
(Sing! A New Creation #40)
as One forever yearning
to make real justice known,
make peace our greatest learning.
God sets the captives free,
restores the blind to seeing
and bears the outcastsí plea,
binds up each broken being.
Refrain: Godís position is our mission!
Let us stand with the least and the lowly.
Let our serving be unswerving,
as we speak out for Love Pure and Holy.
God calls our true selves out
to follow holy leading,
to end the widowís doubt,
give orphans what theyíre needing.
When we learn what is right,
seek good where it is growing,
our lives push back sinís night
and Godís true self is showing. Refrain
James Hart Brumm
