Though the Spiritís Gifts are Many
TEXT: David Gambrell, (c) 2002.
(suggested tune - HYFRYDOL)
Though the Spiritís gifts are many
There is one embracing call;
Many visions, many talents
In the One who loves us all.
Faith and wisdom, hope and promise,
Who we are and how we love Ė
These are gifts from our Creator,
These are blessings from above.
Let no mortal stand in judgment
When the Spirit calls to serve;
Let no power seek to silence
Godís eternal, living Word.
We are children of the promise,
Living in the light of grace,
Working for a new creation
Where all people have a place.
Call the young and old together,
Put the partners hand in hand,
Speak with liberating power,
Tell the truth to all the land:
Christ is risen! Christ is risen!
Earth and heaven now rejoice;
Sing a song of love and welcome
With your Spirit-given voice.
