Tune Charterhouse RS 33
Open the word to beauty and all wonder.
Open our hearts to story broken, bruised.
Open the world of hope and joyful welcome.
Open our wires to conversations new.
Look forward, hear of faith's long re-adventure.
Look out to see the word explored to life.
Look in upon the passion of a dreamer,
Look onward, glimpse a world where freedom flows.
Now pen the fear of chaos and of anger.
Now pen the accents of lament, despair.
And shout the whisper of God's re-creation
And speak the word of healing and repair.
Inspire our lives to loving word in action.
Inspire our song, to sing of grace-filled faith
And send us now to witness to God's glory,
Reformed, reforming people come alive.
