JESUS, COME AND STAND AMONG US

1. When disciples were frightened,
so confused that he was dead,
Jesus came and stood among them:
"Peace be with you!" he said.

He is risen, risen!
He was dead but now he lives.
We were lost but he has found us
with the life he gives.

2. Can we see you, can we touch you
like disciples long ago?
Would it make any difference?
Do we doubt what we know?

3. Jesus, come and stand among us,
show yourself to us again.
We will speak what you tell us,
we will go where you send.


Based on John 20:19-31


 

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.
