We would follow your ways, O God,
across mountain and wilderness,
through the floods of baptism
all the way to glory’s dawn;

We would follow your ways, O God,
believing rainbowed promises,
convinced of steadfast love,
ready for your kin-dom;

We would follow your ways, O God,
hearts torn apart like heavens,
lives in full repentance,
souls waiting;

if only you would call us Beloved,
if only you would stay near to us in mercy.
