New song: Lord Jesus, build your church today

Here’s a new song that I’ve written with Phil Moore for the centenary of the FIEC. It speaks of Christ’s faithfulness to his church while asking for his help that we might be faithful to the truth, to unity, and to mission. It would make a good response to a sermon on any of these themes or for a church anniversary.

Here’s a lead sheet and full score.

1. Lord Jesus you have built your church:
you are our faithful, living Head.
Across the years the flame has passed,
across the earth the light has spread.

2. Lord Jesus build your church today:
may we be faithful to your word,
delighting in its glorious truth
rejoicing in its gracious Lord

CHORUS

Keep us in the faith,
make us one in Christ,
pressing on in hope to win the prize.
Let the light still shine,
may the flame burn bright,
till the day your glory fills the skies.

3. Lord Jesus build your church today:
may we be faithful to your love,
one body bound by bonds of peace,
one holy bride for Christ our God.

4. Lord Jesus build your church today:
may we be faithful to proclaim,
to go and make your gospel known,
to go and magnify your name.
