Sent Forth By God’s Blessing

*

Sent forth by God’s blessing,
our true faith confessing,
the people of God
from this dwelling take leave.
The service is ended,
O now be extended
the fruits of our worship
in all who believe.
The seed of the teaching,
receptive souls reaching,
shall blossom in action
for god and for all.
God’s grace did invite us,
and love shall unite us
to work for God’s kingdom
and answer the call.

With praise and thanksgiving
to God ever living,
the tasks of our everyday
life we will face.
Our faith ever sharing,
in love ever caring,
embracing God’s children
of each tribe and race.
With your grace you feed us,
with your light now lead us;
unite us as one
in this life that we share.
Then may all the living
with praise and thanksgiving
give honor to Christ
and that name which we bear.
