Renew Us, O God

$0.00$10.00

This song was commissioned for the World Communion of Reformed Churches 2017 General Council. It takes the council’s theme (“transformed and transforming; renewed and renewing”) and puts it in prayer form: “Renew us, O God.” This prayer serves as a refrain that can be sung joyfully, as on the recording, or introspectively, like a Taizé chorus.

Renew us, O God.
Renew us, O God.
Transform us, O God, by your Spirit.
Renew us, O God.
Renew us, O God.
Revive us again, living God.

1. God of all creation;
form us, Lord, once more.
Breath into our beings;
raise our dusty souls.
Move across our waters
when chaos breaks like waves.
Bless us with your Sabbath
for the coming days.

2. Jesus Christ, transform us;
graft us into you;
branches of one vine, we
flourish and take root.
Bearing fruits of justice,
bearing fruits of change,
‘til we taste the new wine
of the coming days.

3. Spirit, purify us
With your holy flame.
Fill our hearts with passion;
loose our tongues for praise.
Pentecost revealed it:
a Church that burned and blazed.
Holy Spirit, fill us
for the coming days.
