God Calls Us to Stand
Verse 1: God calls us to stand as one people, no matter our language or race, for Christ is our peace, who made us one, and gathers us still in his grace:
Refrain: So let us stand, brothers and sisters, say “Yes” to the Spirit’s call; join hands, fellow believers, and embrace God’s vision for all!
Verse 2: God calls us to stand by our rivals, reconciled, giving peace a new birth; our anger laid down at the foot of the cross, we declare God’s new heaven and earth. Refrain
Verse 3: God calls us to stand with the lowly, bringing justice, and setting them free, with Christ where he stands, proclaiming with him the year of our Lord’s jubilee: Refrain
