Hymn texts for the Third Sunday of Ordinary Time
 

ALL ARE WELCOME

1.   Let us build a house where love can dwell and all can safely live,
A place where saints and children tell how hearts learn to forgive.
Built of hopes and dreams and visions, rock of faith and vault of grace;
Here the love of Christ shall end divisions:  All are welcome,
All are welcome, all are welcome in this place.

5.   Let us build a house where all are named, their songs and visions heard
And loved and treasured, taught and claimed as words within the Word.
Built of tears and cries and laughter, prayers of faith and songs of grace,
Let this house proclaim from floor to rafter:  All are welcome,
All are welcome, all are welcome in this place.

TO YOU, O GOD, I LIFT UP MY SOUL

REFRAIN:  To you, O God, I lift up my soul; lift up my spirit to my Lord.
To you I lift up my soul.

I HAVE LOVED YOU

REFRAIN:  I have loved you with an everlasting love, I have called you and you are mine;
I have loved you with an everlasting love, I have called you and you are mine.

1.   Seek the face of the Lord and long for him: he will bring you his light and his peace.

2.  Seek the face of the Lord and long for him: he will bring you his joy and his hope.

3.  Seek the face of the Lord and long for him: he will bring you his care and his love.

LORD, YOU HAVE COME

1.   Lord, you have come to the seashore, neither searching for the rich nor the wise,
Desiring only that I should follow.

REFRAIN:  O Lord, with your eyes set upon me, gently smiling,
you have spoken my name; all I longed for I have found by the water,
At your side, I will seek other shores.

2.   Lord, see my goods, my possessions; in my boat you find no power, no wealth.
Will you accept, then, my nets and labor?

3.   Lord, take my hands and direct them.  Help me spend myself in seeking the lost,
Returning love for the love you gave me.

4.   Lord, as I drift on the waters, be the resting place of my restless heart,
My life’s companion, my friend and refuge.

THEY’LL KNOW WE ARE CHRISTIANS

1.   We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord,
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord,
And we pray that all unity may one day be restored:

REFRAIN:  And they’ll know we are Christians by our love,
By our love, yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

2.   We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand,
We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand,
And together we’ll spread the news that God is in our land:
