Many: wandering in a desert of questions and confusion.

Many: not knowing if there were others like us.

Many: seeking a homeland.
One: Now we are found,
Many: knowing that God travels with us.
One: Now we have companions on the journey,
Many: knowing that God created many like us.
One: God is proud to be called our God.
Many: God has prepared a place for us.
One: Come let us worship.
One: Because of the great love you have for us, O God,
Many: You call us to love one another.
