God of life and love,

Gather up your people,

Make us strong,

Make us wise,

Make us wild,

Make us sure,

And move us with your will,

Shake us with your spirit,

Send us with your confidence,

Into the very places of bondage,

Fear, Greed, Hate, and Injustice-

Send us there,

Right there,

With Your

Freedom, Love, Hope, and Truth.

Gather us up,

Fire us up,

And send us today.
