O God of our humanity
O God of our humanity, we fall before your throne.
We have no hope or future outside your grace alone.
Yet we live as if we’re sovereign of our lives and destiny;
we are selfish in our purpose and weak in charity.
O God of our humanity, we fall before your throne
and confess that we have failed you despite the love you’ve shown.
2. O God of all eternity, our times are in your hand;
our lives are but a vapour and fragile is our span.
Yet we act as if immortal, give no heed to life and death
till we face a time of crisis and struggle for our breath.
O God of all eternity, our times are in your hand—
come, shake us from our arrogance and work in us your plan.
3. O God of love and justice, you stand beyond our sin;
yet still you would redeem us and change us from within.
No greater love was given than that of your own Son,
and no higher price is offered to ransom every one.
O God of love and justice, you stand beyond our sin
but through the death of Jesus we can be born again.
4. O God of power and glory, of victory and might,
you call us now to follow you and walk by faith, not sight.
For Jesus Christ is risen and we are risen too,
saved to serve a holy purpose and strive for what is true.
O God of power and glory, of victory and might,
come now—in our humanity turn darkness into light.
