The Church and the Nations

God the Father forms his people,
  from out of the nations to bless the nations;

Jesus the Christ saves his people,
  from out of the nations to bless the nations;

The Holy Spirit draws his people,
  from out of the nations to bless the nations.

Abraham called,
  from out of the nations, the people are blessed;

Moses leads,
  from out of a nation, a people oppressed;

David fights,
  against the nations, the people assured;

Isaiah speaks,
  to lighten the nations, the people restored.

Jesus dies,
  betrayed by the people, for the people;

Jesus dies,
  pierced by the nations, for the nations.

Jesus raised,
  the people remade, the nations reproached;

Paul proclaims,
  the people reshaped, the nations rejoice;

John sees,
  the people redeemed, regathered from every
  tribe, tongue, people and nation.

Source of the Church,
  Desire of the nations;

Head of the Church,
  Judge of the nations;

Breath of the Church,
  Light of the nations;

Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
  renew your Church to bless your nations.
