LIGHT OF THE NATIONS

Light of the nations, sight of the blinded,
you are our freedom from every dark prison -
shine your light on the world,
shine your light on the world.


Through you I will bring light to the nations. The Sovereign Lord has filled me with his Spirit. He has chosen me and sent me to bring good news to the poor, to heal the broken hearted, to announce release to the captives, and freedom to those in prison. (Isaiah 42:6; 49:6; 61:1; Luke 4:18) 1991. Written as a prayer response, for the season of Epiphany, but can be used throughout the year.


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.
