May all the nations praise you (Psalm 67:3; NLT).
Today, may many hear your voice,
Starting their journey
Back to your embrace.
Today, may many turn to you,
Welcoming your grace.
Today, may many follow you,
Serving their neighbours;
Learning to do good.
Today, may many join with you,
Knowing your presence;
Living in your love.
