EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
WE BELIEVE GOD HAVE. HIMSELF-rt CREATE WORLD AND CONTINUE CREATE.
HE-rt COME THROUGH TRUE PERSON, JESUS. FOR-FOR? HELP WORLD AND GOD #BACK-TOGETHER AND MAKE WORLD NEW. HE-lf WORK INSIDE-SELF US AND OTHERS THROUGH THE-ctr SPIRIT.
WE TRUST GOD.
GOD SUMMON US BECOME CHURCH[, CHRIST HIS-lf BODY].
CELEBRATE CHRIST GO-WITH US.
WE SHOULD LOVE AND SERVE OTHERS.
WE SHOULD SEARCH-FOR JUSTICE AND RESIST EVIL.
WE SHOULD ANNOUNCE JESUS CRUCIFIED AND ROSE, OUR JUDGE AND OUR HOPE.
DURING LIFE, DURING DEATH, DURING LIFE AFTER DEATH,
GOD GO-WITH US
WE ALONE NOT.

Lyrics: This has been modified by the Methodist Church (perhaps others) as indicated by the words in the square brackets .
We believe in God who has created and is creating
Who has come in the true person, Jesus, to reconcile and to make new, who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust [in] God.
God calls us to be the [C]church, [the Body of Christ].
To celebrate Christ’s presence.
To love and serve others.
To seek justice and resist evil.
To proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen, our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God.
