'Provoking Faith in the Heart of London'
A new hymn for 2021, based on the Vision Statement of Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church
We are your people called together,
Bringing hearts and minds to you;
We nurture faith through strength and weakness,
Seeking truth in all we do.
Great God you call us to your heart-beat:
Living love, including all;
Provoking faith across our city,
Help us follow where you call.
Great Christ our centre and our focus
Give us courage to stand true;
Confronting forces of injustice,
Risking all, we follow you.
This church stands open to your Spirit,
We will help the broken mend;
A sanctuary for those excluded,
Christ, we follow to the end.
Words: Simon P Woodman
Music: Alexandra Cran-McGreehin
Note: you may wish to substitute the line 'Provoking faith across our nation' in the chorus if that is more applicable.
Bloomsbury Lockdown Choir:
Vocals: Alexandra, Liz, Helen, Ruth, Frank, Keith, John
