God of Love and God of Power

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 578
Text: Gerald H. Kennedy, 1907-
Music: Joachim Neander, 1650-1680
Tune: UNSER HERRSCHER, Meter: 77.77.77

1. God of love and God of power,
grant us in this burning hour
grace to ask these gifts of thee,
daring hearts and spirits free.
God of love and God of power,
thou hast called us for this hour.

2. We are not the first to be
banished by our fears from thee;
give us courage, let us hear
heaven's trumpets ringing clear.

3. All our lives belong to thee,
thou our final loyalty;
slaves are we whene'er we share
that devotion anywhere.

4. God of love and God of power,
make us worthy of this hour;
offering lives if it's thy will,
keeping free our spirits still.
