COME AND HEAR

1. Jesus, when I call to you, come and hear my cry.
Jesus, for your mercy’s sake, come and hear my cry.
When my days are full of pain, come and hear my cry.

When my heart is sore and bruised, come and hear my cry.

Come and hear the troubles that I feel, know the hurting, listen to my heart.

2. When I’m searching and confused, come and hear my cry.
When my days seem meaningless, come and hear my cry.

When I’m angry and let down, come and hear my cry.
When my heart tastes bitterness, come and hear my cry.

(Repeat chorus; then first four lines of v.1)

2021 - Where do we go from here?

Breezin' along in my Japanese coupe, breezin' along with the windows down. The dog keeps sniffing the air - he's got an empty head but he's alright. We've got time to spare, time to get where, we don't know, and who cares?

And the days go fast and the nights go faster
Lord, where do we go from here?
Lord, where do you want me to be? (© Robin Mann 1972)

Some questions keep on coming, and this is one of them.
The pandemic has put a hold on so much, and while Australia is in a better position than many, uncertainty remains.

Two weeks ago I  finished a song 'In the year that's coming'. It ends with:

May your love shine through us,
every day renew us,
keep on coming to us, 
stay with us
in the coming year.
