Hymn: Deep in Our Hearts
Performed by Stephen Cocks

1.
Deep in our hearts there is a common vision;
deep in our hearts there is a common song;
deep in our hearts there is a common story,
telling Creation that we are one.

2.
Deep in our hearts there is a common purpose;
deep in our hearts there is a common goal;
deep in our hearts there is a sacred message,
justice and peace in harmony.

3.
Deep in our hearts there is a common longing;
deep in our hearts there is a common theme;
deep in our hearts there is a common current,
flowing to freedom like a stream.

4.
Deep in our hearts there is a common vision;
deep in our hearts there is a common song;
deep in our hearts there is a common story,
telling Creation that we are one.

 

Benediction: May the Christ Who Walks on Wounded Feet
Performed by Stephen Cocks

May the Christ who walks on wounded feet, walk with you on the road.
May the Christ who serves with wounded hands, stretch out your hands to serve.
May the Christ who loves with a wounded heart, open your hearts to love;
when you leave this place may you see the face of Christ in everyone you meet;
and may everyone you meet see the face of Christ in you.
