GOD OF THE WOMEN

GOD OF THE WOMEN (sung to tune of #793, Be Thou My Vision)
1. God of the women who answered your call,
Trusting your promises, giving their all,
Women like Sarah and Hannah and Ruth —
Give us their courage to live in your truth.

2. God of the women who walked Jesus’ Way,
Giving their resources, learning to pray,
Mary, Joanna, Susanna, and more —
May we give freely as they did before.

3. God of the women long put to the test,
Left out of stories, forgotten, oppressed,
Quietly asking: “Who smiled at my birth?” —
In Jesus’ dying you show us our worth.

4. God of the women who ran from the tomb,
Prayed with the others in that upper room,
Then felt your Spirit on Pentecost Day —
May we so gladly proclaim you today.

5. O God of Phoebe and ministers all,
May we be joyful in ans’ring your call.
Give us the strength of your Spirit so near
That we may share in your ministry here.
