Voices raised to you we offer

Voices raised to you we offer;
Tune them, God, for songs of praise.
Hearts and hands we bring in tribute
For your gifts through all our days.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Triune God, to you we sing!

All creation joins to praise you;
Earth and sky your works display.
Art and music, gifts you lend us,
We return to you today.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God, Creator, source of life!

Christ, the song of love incarnate,
Touching earth with heaven's grace.
For your living, suff'ring, dying,
For your rising, hear our praise!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Christ, Redeemer, Lord of life!

Spirit, flaming through creation,
Kindle faith within each heart.
Lift our voices high in chorus;
Through our hands your love impart.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Spirit, Helper, breath of life!

How can any praise we offer
Measure all the thanks we owe!
Take our hearts and hands and voices—
Gifts of love we can bestow.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Triune God, to you we sing!
