God gives a new beginning

God gives a new beginning
to those who hear his call,
who turn from self and sinning
to Christ as all-in-all:
to know him still more clearly
their over-arching aim;
to follow him more nearly,
and learn to love his name.

2. In songs and celebration,
in penitence and prayer,
we come with adoration
the bread and wine to share:
to hear his truth expounded,
before his cross to bend,
and, by his saints surrounded,
to find in him a friend.

3. May we, his name confessing,
unwearied run the race,
and daily seek his blessing,
his gifts of truth and grace:
his word our souls to nourish,
his Spirit from above,
whose promised fruit shall flourish
in joy and peace and love.
