Guard the good treasure God entrusts to you;
In everything hold fast to what is true;
The Spirit guides and gives us hope anew. Alleluia!
Be not ashamed of what the Lord has done;
We have a holy calling, everyone;
Prepare your hearts, our work has just begun. Alleluia!
Hold fast to teaching that reflects God’s grace;
proclaim the story of Christ’s strong embrace;
and God will give us strength to run this race. Alleluia!
This grace was giv’n to us in Jesus Christ;
We all are saved through his own sacrifice;
We must respond for he has paid the price. Alleluia!
Through your baptism you have been ordained
to preach the love that cannot be contained
and share the fruitful blessing you’ve obtained. Alleluia!
