Departing to Serve


Hymn The Spirit Sends Us Forth to Serve LAND OF REST

The Spirit sends us forth to serve; we go in Jesus’ name

to bring glad tidings to the poor, God’s favor to proclaim.

We go to comfort those who mourn and set the burdened free;

where hope is dim, to share a dream and help the blind to see.

We go to be the hands of Christ, to scatter joy like seed

and, all our days, to cherish life, to do the loving deed.

Then let us go to serve in peace, the gospel to proclaim.

God’s Spirit has empowered us; we go in Jesus’ name.
