Hymn for harmony in a world of many faiths

1 Faith works, but how can love be shown
within a world of complex care?
Between each nation, in each town
how can God's love be focused there?

2 A different language, creed or dress
can build a wall and damage life;
and ignorance or fear of faith
could break our trust and fire our strife.

3 How can we legislate for peace,
or work for human harmony,
within a world of disparate needs,
maintaining our integrity.

4 God give us confidence to see
your face in people all around
that, in a world of many faiths,
your seeds of love may find rich ground.
