Our hearts are singing
to the King of Israel!
Our entire beings are filled with joy!
Liberation is ours!
Our enemies have changed course!
We are no longer afraid,
for we have been rescued
by the Mighty One
Hear our prayers, O God,
for those still bowed low
in deep despair,
those who are afraid
and drowning in hopelessness.
Hear our prayers for the lame,
and for the outcasts
and for the oppressed.
Hear our prayers for those filled with shame.
As you gather your people together
for remembering and for feasting, Lord,
may your church uphold the broken
and minister to them with loving kindness
and welcome them into the feast
of the forgiven,
so that they may be restored to wholeness
according to your perfect will.
