By Word and Spirit

Lyrics and music by Paul Janssen, 2007

Lyrics:

Refrain: By Word and Spirit, God gathers us, and protects with God’s care, in ev’ry land, in ev’ry tongue, this gift of unity we share.

We say No! To the powers that threaten to divide us, we say Yes! To God’s calling to live in the light; unto God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit lift your song; and let God’s righteousness flow freely through the ages long. Refrain

We shall love one another in joyful communion, for we need one another to grow up into Christ; unto Creator, Christ, and Holy Spirit lift your song; and let God’s righteousness flow freely through the ages long. Refrain

We shall broadcast the gospel of peace to all peoples, we shall live the new heaven and earth, here and now; unto God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit lift your song; and let God’s righteousness flow freely through the ages long. Refrain

We shall live with the poor, not as lords, but companions, we shall stand where God stands, so that justice may roll! unto God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit lift your song; and let God’s righteousness flow freely through the ages long.
