May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven
(Matthew 6:10; NLT).
1. At birth
We separate from you –
Living in exile,
Far from heaven above.
2. Each day,
We search for you as best we can –
Bearing our burdens;
Growing in your love.
3. Throughout our lives
We strive to do your will –
Serving your kingdom;
Following your Son.
4. In death,
We reunite with you at last –
Dwelling beyond all time,
For we are one.
Nothing can ever separate us from God’s love
(Romans 8:38; NLT).

1. I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5; NLT).
You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13; NIV).
You brought me out of the womb (Psalm 22:9; NIV).
I will be a sanctuary to you during your time in exile (Ezekiel 11:16; NLT).
2. “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord (Jeremiah 29:13-14; NIV).
Then he [Jesus] said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23; NLT).
May the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow and overflow (1 Thessalonians 3:12; NLT).
3. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God (Psalm 143:10; NLT).
I want your will to be done, not mine (Matthew 26:39; NLT).
Since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear (Hebrews 12:28; NKJV).
Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me” (Matthew 4:19; NLT).
4. Then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NLT).
I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever (Psalm 23:6; KJV).
I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one (John 17:21; NLT).
All glory to him who alone is God, our Saviour through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen (Jude 1:25; NLT).
