God of Abraham (AOV 1/137)

This song by Bernadette Farrell has seventeen verses so I doubt anyone would expect to sing them all in one go. It is not a favourite of mine as gets sing-songy after a while, but then we don’t do it like the gospel song it should be (listen here).

It can be purchased for download at OCP.

My backing only goes for a few verses.

God of Abraham, lead us, lead us to your kingdom.

Into fruitfulness, lead us, lead us together, lead us to freedom.

 

God of Sarah be with us, lead us to your kingdom.

Through our laughter and labor, lead us together, lead us to freedom.

 

God of Moses and Aaron, lead us to your kingdom.

Out of slavery, lead us, lead us together, lead us to freedom.

 

God of Miriam, lead us, lead us to your kingdom.

Into songs of hope lead us, lead us together, lead us to freedom.

(last time) Lead us to freedom now.

Remaining verses as above

God of Jesus Christ / Into your new creation

Guiding light for our journey / Out of shadows and darkness

By the waters of healing / Into life everlasting

Through the word that is spoken / Through the bread that is broken

God of all living people / Into unity lead us

God of ev’ry race lead us / In diversity lead us

God of women of all time / Out of history lead us

God of humankind, lead us / Into harmony lead us

Lead us now and forever / Give us now a new future
