"Make of Us:" In 2013, I had the honor of visiting Ghana, Africa, with Catholic Relief Services and some of my fellow composers at Oregon Catholic Press. The experience primed us to write liturgical songs that bring mindfulness to Catholic Social Teaching. This one is my two cents’ worth.

Lyrics

Make of us
A refuge for the poor
Their help in distress, O Lord
Make of us
A refuge for the poor
Their help in distress, O Lord

1. When those who are hungry
Have something to eat
God is with us
When those who are thirsty
have something to drink
our god is with us

Make of us
A refuge for the poor
Their help in distress, O Lord
Make of us
A refuge for the poor
Their help in distress, O Lord

2. When the naked have clothing
and the sick are not least
God is with us
When the pris’ner’s not lonely
and forgiveness increased
Our god is with us

3. What good is profession
of faith without deed
Can it save us
When others go without
and we don’t care for their need
will our faith save us

Faith without works is dead
But we will pass from death
Into life through our love
For god is love

Make of us
A refuge for the poor
Their help in distress, O Lord
Make of us
A refuge for the poor
Their help in distress, O Lord

Make of us
A refuge for the poor
Their help in distress, O Lord
Make of us
A refuge for the poor
Their help in distress, O Lord
