Here you are among us (Tu estas presente), Brazil
Be still, be silent (Thula), Swaziland
Chitra’s tune, Nepal
This is the day of rest

THE PEOPLE OF GOD

Women and men as God intended
God it was
Gifts of the Spirit
To be a soldier
There is a line of women
We belong to God
While the earth remains, Korea
Because the Saviour prayed
O God, you made us all unique
Maker and Mover
God’s Spirit is here
We rejoice to be God’s chosen

Keep me, Lord/ Ps.16
I will always bless the Lord
Do not be vexed
Create within me a clean heart/ Ps.51
O Great God and Lord of the earth/ Ps.94, El Salvador
Know that God is good (Mungu ni mwema)/ Ps.100, Democratic Republic of Congo
In deep distress
Listen now for the Gospel (Yakanaka Vhangeri), Zimbabwe
I will arise
One is the body
Love one another
Love is the touch

COMMITMENT TO GOD

Ageless God of boundless wonder
All the wonder that surrounds us
You are the God of new beginnings
In concrete, brick and living stone
Sisters and brothers, with one voice
Take this moment
I’ll praise eternal God (Je lourai I’Éternel), France
We will walk with God (Sizohamba), Swaziland
Now that evening falls
Now that day is done
Journey prayers
Your will be done
Now go in peace

  1. “… our hymns ore sometimes strong on piety and weak on politics. This is certainly not an accusation laid at the door of this latest collection of songs and hymns.” – ANN HARRISON, News Of Hymnody.
