Let My Life be a Liturgy

Let my life be a liturgy

Formed and ordered by the Word;

So compel and control

My Body, Spirit and Soul,

That Christ may be known by all in me.

 

Let my life be a liturgy

Stained and covered by the Ghost:

I to listen and heed

In thought, in voice, and in deed,

That Christ may be known to all by me.

 

Let my life be a liturgy

Held and car’d by the Father;

He to plan and create,

Redeemed from our sinful state

That Christ may be known in all to me.

 

Let my life be liturgy

Lived and molded by the Fold;

We to worship and obey

As we repent, confess and pray,

That Christ may be known for all through we.

 

Let my life be a liturgy

Known and ‘membered by our LORD;

We to trust and believe

And in faith we then receive

That Christ may be known by all through Thee.
