Happy Birthday, Church!
Deep warmth of joy and love be yours,
Bright light of sight and life be yours,
Rich glow of fruits and growth be yours;
Fire of the Spirit burn within you
Fire of the Spirit burn within you.
Energy of God fill you and dwell in you,
Life of God inspire and renew you,
Breeze of God revive and disturb you;
Wind of the Spirit blow through you
Wind of the Spirit blow through you.
Life giving presence of God stir you
Unseen power of God strengthen you
Wellspring of truth cleanse you and lead you.
The Spirit encourage and guide you,
Creative voice of God direct you
And kindle adventure within you;
Wild Goose cheer you and call you on
Wild Goose cheer you and call you on.
