I SEE RED
I know I see RED, bright and clear, It calls me forth by Spirit dear.
The church’s mission, clarion call, Both young and old, to one and all.
Join with me ever to proclaim, The love of God in Jesus’ name.
I know I see RED’S burnished flame, It stands for REACH, man to reclaim.
Our heart’s emblazed with passion sore, For those who knock at Shepherd’s door.
I know I see RED, EDIFY, My people grow through Spirit’s sigh.
My Word, a lamp unto their feet, The Sacrament is food so sweet.
I know I see RED, vision clear, DEPLOY my people far and near.
The work they have to do is great, It calls for courage, conquers fate.
I know I see RED, glorious sight, It calls forth praise to heaven’s height.
To Father, Spirit and the Son, In their great names our labor’s done.
