Title: Now Praise the Hidden God of Love

Theme: Life in Christ

1.  Now praise the hidden God of love,
    In whom we all must live and move,
    Who shepherds us at every stage,
    Through youth, maturity, and age:

2.  Who challenged us, when we were young,
    To storm the citadels of wrong;
    In care for others taught us how
    God's true community must grow:

3.  Who bids us never lose our zest,
    Though age is urging us to rest,
    But proves to us that we have still
    A work to do, a place to fill.
