Forth in the Peace of Christ We Go - Quinn

Thee cross on the mountaintop - in glory.   1 Forth in the peace of Christ we go; Christ to the world with joy we bring; Christ in our minds, Christ in our lips, Christ in our hearts, the world's true King. 2 King of our hearts, Christ makes us kings; kingship with Him His servants gain; with Christ, the Servant-Lord of all, Christ's world we serve to share Christ's reign. 3 Priests of the world, Christ sends us forth the world of time to consecrate, the world of sin by grace to heal, Christ's world in Christ to recreate. 4 Prophets of Christ, we hear His word: He claims our minds, to search His ways, He claims our lips, to speak His truth, He claims our hearts, to sing His praise. 5 We are the Church; He makes us one: here is one hearth for all to find, here is one flock, one Shepherd-King, here is one faith, one heart, one mind.

4 Prophets of Christ, we hear His word...

5 We are the Church; He makes us one ....
