You are the seed that will grow a new sprout;
you’re a star that will shine in the night;
you are the yeast and a small grain of salt,
a beacon to glow in the dark.
You are the dawn that will bring a new day;
you're the wheat that will bear golden grain;
you are a sting and a soft, gentle touch,
my witnesses where'er you go.
Go, my friends, go to the world,
proclaiming love to all,
messengers of my forgiving peace, eternal love.
Be, my friends, a loyal witness,
from the dead I arose;
“Lo, I’ll be with you forever,
till the end of the world.”
You are the flame that will lighten the dark,
sending sparkles of hop, faith, and love;
you are the shepherds to lead the whole word
through valleys and pastures of peace.
You are the friend that I chose for myself,
the work that I want to proclaim/
You are the new kingdom built on a rock
where justice and truth always reign.
You are the life that will nurture the plant;
you're the waves in a turbulent sea;
yesterday's yeast is beginning to rise,
a new loaf of bread ti will yield.
There is no place for a city to hide,
nor a mountain can cover its might;'
may your good deeds show a world in despair
a path that will lead all to God.
