One: God calls us to lives of hope,
All: looking forward yet living now, working for God’s kingdom to come.
One: God calls us to lives of peace,
All: acting on God’s word in every moment, defying the world’s tendency to violence.
One: God calls us to lives of joy,
All: founded in God’s relationship with us, not in happiness or cheer.
One: God calls us to lives of love,
All: because God first loved us, and continues to love us, and so we love others.
One: God calls us to worship,
All: with hearts, hands, voices, and lives.
