Renew Your Hearts

This hymn about repentance was published in the 1978 Alleluia! Amen - and apparently nowhere else.   The text is attributed as "composite" and the tune to Jean Paul Lécot.   It is possibly a translation of a French-language hymn, with the translating being provided by various people.



Renew your hearts,
Repent and believe in the Gospel.
Return to God, for he is rich in mercy.

I do not come to condemn the world.
I come to bring salvation to all people.

I do not come for those who are healthy or just.
I come to help the weak and those in sin.

I do not come to judge anyone.
I come to give all, eternal life.

I am the good shepherd,
I come to give my life for the sheep.

I am the gate of the sheepfold,
The one who enters by me will be saved.

They who believe have eternal life.
My words to you are spirit, they are life.
