Here is a place

1. Here is a place and people of the Spirit.
Here we find love. Here we find joy. Here we find peace.
Here in this place we gather in Christ Jesus,
welcoming everybody to celebrate life.
Celebrate life. Celebrate Love.
Here and throughout the whole world, we celebrate Love.

2. Here is a place and people of compassion.
Here we find rest. Here we are blest. Here we are healed.
Here in this place we meet as friends of Jesus,
offering all renewal and fullness of life.
Celebrate life. Celebrate Love.
Here and throughout the whole world, we celebrate Love.

3. Here is a place and people of resistance.
Here we seek truth. Here we have hope. Here we keep faith.
Here in this place we stand our ground in Jesus,
wrestling against the powers to liberate life.
Celebrate life. Celebrate Love.
Here and throughout the whole world, we celebrate Love.

4. Here is a place and people of the Gospel.
Here we give thanks. Here we confess. Here we find God.
Here in this place we hear the Word of Jesus,
preaching the coming new world and promising life.
Celebrate life. Celebrate Love.
Here and throughout the whole world, we celebrate Love.
