Anthem text
Have we any gift worth gi ving
to the Giver of all things?
What would please the ever-living
one true God from whom life springs?
Not dead gold or merchandise,
but a living sacrifice:
worship both profound and freeing, serving God with all our being.

Christ by costly incarnation
dwelt in human time and place
to reveal to all creation
God's redeeming love and grace:
so are we in flesh and bone
given means of making known
through the web of daily living
God's own pattern of self-giving.

Let us shun the selfish merit
worldly wisdom has defined,
but renewed by God's own Spirit
be transformed in heart and mind:
by past mercies taught and led,
let us seek the path ahead,
trusting that, like those before us,
God will guide us and restore us.

Carl P. Daw, Jr.
