Praying for #Primates2016

Rivers and stones
and the trees of the field,
they sing in the night.
And a thousand tongues
lay deep in your lungs
to raise to the sky.
Don’t lie to yourself, o my soul,
love your God.

Deep in your heart,
you feather and tar your folly and fear
expose them all for the fools they are
and the world comes clean.

Don’t lie to yourself, o my soul,
love your God.
Your worries will never love you
they’ll leave you all alone.
but your God will not.

But your God will not forsake you
O my soul, my soul
Don’t lie to yourself o my soul
love your God

Don’t lie to yourself o my soul
just love your God
love your God

O Spirit of the living God,
thou Light and Fire Divine
Descend upon Thy Church once more
and make it truly Thine
Fill it with love and joy and power,
with righteousness and peace
Till Christ shall dwell in human hearts,
and sin and sorrow cease.

Blow, wind of God,
with wisdom blow until our minds are free
From mists of error, clouds of doubt,
which blind our eyes to Thee
Burn, winged fire, inspire our lips
with flaming love and zeal
To preach to all Thy great good news,
God’s glorious commonweal.

So shall we know the the power of Christ,
who came this world to save
So shall we rise with Him to life
which soars beyond the grave
And earth shall win true holiness
which makes Thy children whole
Till, perfected by Thee,
we reach creation’s glorious goal
