This is holy ground, we’re standing on holy ground
For the Lord is present and where God is is holy.
This is holy ground, we’re standing on holy ground
For the Lord is present and where God is is holy.

These are holy hands, God’s given us holy hands
God works through us and so these hands are holy
These are holy hands, God’s given us holy hands
God works through us and so these hands are holy

These are holy lips, God’s given us holy lips
God speaks through us and so these lips are holy.
These are holy lips, God’s given us holy lips
God speaks through us and so these lips are holy.

These are holy times, we’re living in holy times
God loves through us and so these times are holy
These are holy times, we’re living in holy times
God loves through us and so these times are holy

At The Land, communion is an open table where all are invited to participate.

– Lyrics – Humphreys
In a many colored garden we are growing side by side
We will rise all together, we will rise.
With the sun and rain upon us not a row will be denied
We will rise all together we will rise.
We will rise like the ocean, we will rise like the sun
We will rise all together we will rise
In our many colored fabrics made from strands of common thread
We will rise all together we will rise.

We can feed our grain to cattle and the rich man will be fed
We will rise all together, we will rise
Or we’ll feed our grain to people so that millions will be fed
We will rise all together, we will rise
We will rise like the ocean, we will rise like the sun
We will rise all together we will rise
No more will there be hunger in these strands of common thread
We will rise all together we will rise.

In the cold and fear of hatred clothed in dignity we stand
We will rise all together we will rise.
We have pieced this quilt together linking hears with stitching hands
We will rise all together we will rise
We will rise like the ocean, we will rise like the sun
We will rise all together we will rise
We are spirits drawn together tightly by our strands of common thread
We will rise all together we will rise.

From our children, from our elders, from all nations, we will rise
We will rise all together we will rise
Ay respect for all our differences enhance our common ties
We will rise all together we will rise
We will rise like the ocean, we will rise like the sun
We will rise all together we will rise
We will build a global family strengthened by our common thread.
We will rise all together we will rise.

We believe in God who loves us and wants us to love each other,
This is our God.

We believe in Jesus who cared about children and held them in his arms. He wanted a world where everyone could live together in peace.
This is Jesus Christ.

We believe in the Holy Spirit who keeps working with us until everything is good and true.
This is the Holy Spirit.

We can be the Church which reminds people of God because we love each other. This
we believe. Amen.
