This song was commissioned by First Congregational UCC church of Webster Groves, MO.


We have been afraid and lost / You’ve made way for love
We have been a people led from lack into enough
Mystery is every gift, so as we lift our foot to step
for all who are afraid and lost, we make your way for love

To the One making way: Gloria, oh gloria
For peace for all around the world:
Gloria, oh gloria to the One making way

We have been abused by power / You’ve made way for justice
We have been a people freed and claimed by God in trust
God’s love is a flame to fan; it’s clear to all where we will stand
For all who are abused by power, we make your way for justice

We have been new immigrants / You’ve made way for home
We have been a people crossing borders in shalom
History has made us wise so as we set ahead our eyes
For all who are new immigrants, we make your way for home
