The splendour of God's truth we see 
Like sunlight through the clouds. 
We recognise the good and right 
Yet wrong enthralls the crowds. 
O Light of Christ, shine in our day. 
Your truth we seek and crave. 
And in your life may ours be hid 
Who follow in your Way. 

Come swiftly, Lord. Good Shepherd, come. 
Your Church in pain revolves. 
See, shepherds have betrayed the lambs 
And shown themselves as wolves. 
O heal your brokenhearted ones 
Bereft and killed by shame. 
Come claim your flock. Defend your own 
Who love your voice and Name. 

Beneath the cross and at the tomb 
And in the upper room. 
You pour upon us grace and power 
To triumph over doom. 
Your mother we take as our own. 
On Peter's Rock we stand. 
Oh feed and lead us by your Life 
Into your promised land!
