God of the promise
who liberates us from bondage
who brings us home from exile
who reconciles us in-spite of our estrangement
and is vulnerable in hope of embrace
May we find you
at work in our world
present in our relationships
calling us into your new life

We want to find
but not all of us do
give us the courage to seek
patience to endure
and faithful company for the journey

For those who have ears to hear
May they listen closely to the good tidings of your love
And sing it to us
For those who have eyes to see
May they fix their gaze on the hope-filled horizon of your future
And proclaim it to us
