God, give us faith to believe the truth
And the courage to ask why

Give us joy in life’s fulfilment
And the courage to cry

God give us the strength to carry others
And the courage to ask for help

Give us grace towards holiness
And the courage to confess our guilt

Father show us a bigger picture
Jesus play us a longer song
Holy Spirit put us on a road that’s deeper
Than the one we’re on.
