Christ, the foundation of our faith,
The cornerstone of Christendom,
Rebuild your Church from the inside.
Reshape us, molding us into those who serve first,
And are edified in our service.
Teach us your ways of building up others.
Forgive us when our words tear down,
When we are quick to berate.
Grant us your grace to grow and discover our place,
Upholding your Gospel of truth and love.
Eradicate our sinful desire for our own glory,
So that we can more fully give glory to you.
May others come to know your transforming love through us,
And discover that all are invited to embrace this grace.
Until the entire earth rings with your praise,
We will plow the fields and search out the lost of your flock.
Give us the perseverance to stay the course.
All honor for your mighty acts and to your sacred name.
