A hymn for Haiti

Carolyn Winfrey Gillette has written a hymn reflecting on the earthquake in Haiti: In Haiti There is Anguish [pdf]

The hymn concludes with a call to respond:

"And may we see, in others’ pain, the cross we’re called to bear;
Send out your church in Jesus’ name to pray, to serve, to share."

The text is copyrighted, however permission is granted for use by those who support Presbyterian Disaster Assistance's response to the earthquake.
