With you we go onward as witnesses to Christ Spreading the light of the Word following Francis
1. With you we go like Mary with the light of the Nativity We keep the covenant that we gained in the water of baptism And the Cross of our Redeemer, his strength, protects us We carry it onward, good news for the enslaved.
2. With you we seek the face of the Redeemer in every human being We plant love that blossoms into joy, we witness to faith And the Church of our Redeemer invigorates us with her sacraments We are nourished by them and we go onward immersed in faith.
3. With you we vest the cloak of mercy among all creatures We become apostles of peace among the nations of the earth The Gospel of our Redeemer, its light guides us We live by it and go onward calling for harmony.
4. With you we raise our prayer from the land of holiness We pray for the East in pain, lost on its way The love of our Redeemer preserves us and enriches us We clothe ourselves in it and go onward on the path of deliverance.
5. With you we sing the resurrection and proclaim life Bearing witness to Peter meeting his brother one again Jesus our Redeemer commands us to unity So we listen and go onward towards, our goal to gratify him.
