Steadfast Love

When my soul is bereft of peace,

I’ve forgotten what happiness is,

I find this I call to mind

And therefore I have hope –

When injustice shrivels the soul,

In a world that’s forgotten the way,

I find this I call to mind

And therefore I have hope –

 

The steadfast love of God will never cease,

God’s mercies will never come to an end –

They are new every morning,

They are new every morning

God’s steadfast love will never come to an end.

in the quiet

 

In the quiet I come to you

I find strength to start anew

Breathing out and breathing in

In the quiet I come to you

 

I find stillness in the storm

Despite the struggles all around

God of the just heart

God of the just heart

In the challenging words of the Sermon on the Mount

‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice

They shall be satisfied’

You remind us that satisfaction does not lie

Where we might expect it
In the security of wealth and privilege

But in the joy of doing what is right

And in working to assert the value and dignity of other people

Because this is the calling of your community

This builds relationships and just societies

This brings deep satisfaction

As all are made welcome.

 

So keep us hungering and thirsting

For the values that make us all whole

And then we know the healing fountains will start.

eternal echoes

Eternal echoes are calling me somewhere on the wind

They’re hard to hear – sometimes I fear I won’t hear them again

But they return and seem to say you’ve somewhere you belong

Eternal echoes are leading me with the silent voice of love

All Hallows on the Wall farewell Eucharist liturgy

In this moment, we bring ourselves, and our day,

We gather our random thoughts, our scattered lives.

We bring the entirety of ourselves to this place of calm, this place of safety.

We seek sanctuary so that we can risk everything.
