Tune: Blest Be the Tie that Binds
God bless all the saints of our lives,
who’ve loved us through all of the years,
who shared in our struggles, who cherished our joys,
who held us and wiped all our tears.
God bless all the teachers and guides
whose wisdom enriches our days,
the prophets whose courage gives heart to our struggles,
whose truth sheds your light on our ways.
God bless all the silent ones, too
who serve you in humble ways,
who can’t see the ways that their lives are a blessing,
yet live in prayerful praise.
God, help us become your Saints
who live by your Grace all our days,
that we may be a holy blessing
by living in your loving ways.
Beloved saints of God,
baptized in the Spirit’s new birth,
receive God’s love, that you may be loving,
and so bring heaven to earth.
Go forth as God’s Saints in the world,
made holy by God’s perfect grace,
and let the Spirit that blesses you
so bless your time and place.
