Christ the center, Christ the circle, faith trusting in the storm;
Christ the center, Christ the circle, faith will save us from all harm.
Oh, the wonder of the circle, grace and mercy, peace abound.
Christ will draw us in a circle and with grace our faith surround.
Oh, the wonder of the circle, messianic rose of peace,
Christ the blossom in the center: Peace, be still! Our faith increase!
Christ the radius of living, Christ the middle, Christ around:
God, awaken our forgiving, that the life of Christ abound.
Christ the center, Christ the circle, faith will hold us when we fall;
Christ the circle, faith the gift and the call. Amen.
