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.
