Praise with me my King and Saviour
For the mercy he has shown.
In His sight we have found favour,
For in love He left His throne;
Here below in perfect living
All the law's demands He met.
Then in full obedience giving
His own life to meet our debt.
Now no more in condemnation,
Christ has died to make us free.
In the light of such salvation
Let us live in unity.
May we learn to love each other
In our thoughts, our words and deeds.
To each sister and each brother
Giving all to meet their needs.
Breaking bread, we meet together,
Sharing fellowship as one.
We are all in Him forever,
Bound together through the Son.
Let us meet to hear sound teaching,
Give ourselves to constant prayer.
Always ready to be reaching
Out to people everywhere.
As the world observes us living,
May they wonder at the sight
Of a people who, in giving,
Share a part of heaven's light.
As we live this gospel story
Let them then to Christ be drawn,
To the Father's praise and glory,
Through the Spirit be reborn.
