Representative Text

1 I bind my heart this tide
to the Galilean’s side,
to the wounds of Calvary,
to the Christ who died for me.

2 I bind my soul this day
to the neighbor far away,
and the stranger near at hand,
in this town, and in this land.

3 I bind my heart in thrall
to the God, the Lord of all,
to the Christ, the poor one’s friend,
and the Spirit he did send.

4 I bind myself to peace,
to make strife and envy cease.
God! Knit secure the cord
of my thralldom to my Lord!
