We Join In Proclaiming
ASH GROVE 6.6.11.6.6.11 D ("Let All Things Now Living")

We join in proclaiming the faith we believe in —
That God is Creator and we are God's own.
We trust in Christ Jesus and gladly receive him,
For we have been blessed by the love he has shown.
Christ died and is risen and, one with the Father,
He reigns now in heaven, still loving the earth.
The Spirit of God that moved over the waters
Now moves here among us, empowering God's church.

O God, we have pondered through years of our history
How you can be Father and Spirit and Son.
We've prayed and we've studied and called it a mystery
That you are three persons and yet you are one.
Creating and saving, your church here renewing,
You still are one God working many good ways.
May we humbly thank you for all you are doing!
O God in three persons, we offer you praise.
