In Your love, oh Lord, let my passion be compassion,
For brother, sister, and stranger, in word and in action.
Stirred by love for You and neighbor,
Help me to proclaim Christ, my loving savior.
For, You loved me first and showed me great compassion,
Your grace is greater than I can imagine.
You have set me free and who You have set free is free indeed!
Help me to follow You and Your lead.
To be kind to others, tenderhearted, and forgiving,
Not to grieve the Spirit by the way I am living.
To be generous in every possible way,
With grace, patience, and mercy – not just in things that will fade away.
To rejoice with those who rejoice and to weep with those who weep,
To love even when it hurts and cuts so deep.
To speak words that reflect You and Your light,
For they are Your words and sharing them is right.
You have given me gifts of grace, love, and words,
Help me to be a good steward while I live in this World.
To care for those I encounter in this world,
As I learn from You and follow the Word.
