In the light of your mercy

Added 27th May 2016

In the light of your mercy,
we offer up our lives,
all we are, for you.
In the power of your Spirit
a living sacrifice,
all we are, for you.

We bring the work of our hands,
our dreams and our plans,
the fruit of our lips,
our talents and gifts;
our kindness and care,
the knowledge we share,
the money we make,
all our small steps of faith.

We bring our doubts and our fears,
our joys and our tears,
our failings and flaws,
for you see it all;
the whole of our lives
we offer through Christ,
may our worship be true,
bringing glory to you.

Recently I’ve been thinking about how our gathered worship in church can seem disconnected from our everyday lives. In contrast, the New Testament encourages us to bring our whole selves to God in worship - both when we gather to sing and pray, but also when we scatter and can worship God in our actions. For me, Romans 12:1 is a really important verse in this, so I have tried to write a chorus which reminds us of this. The verses then go on to unpack how this might look in contemporary life. I hope it will be a blessing for all ages.
