1 In the streets of every city,
bringing hope and healing strife,
living out the Saviour's pity,
caring for each precious life:
where it matters, there you'll find us
in the service of our Lord.

2 Through the world, in every nation,
serving Christ with lives made whole;
in his name we speak salvation
grace for every seeking soul:
where it matters, there you'll find us
thrilling those who have not heard.

3 In our daily time of praying,
thanking God for sins forgiven,
hearing what his voice is saying,
tasting now the joys of heaven:
where it matters there you'll find us,
silent, waiting on his word.

4 At his table, there you'll find us
pouring wine and sharing bread;
'Christ has died' these gifts remind us,
'Christ is risen from the dead':
where it matters, there you'll find us,
hearts renewed and lives restored.

5 God of city, state and nation,
Lord ascended, coming King:
with resounding exultation
of your faithfulness we sing:
when it matters, then you'll find us
and for ever be adored.
