HAND IN HAND

(also in 'God.Version 1.0' CD & book)

1. When I consider God's design,
raging seas and searing sand,
I hold my breath,
but even more, I stand in awe
when all creation joins in praise,
hand in hand, hand in hand.
All creation joins in praise,
hand in hand.

2. When I consider Jesus Christ,
beaten, killed and broken man,
I hold my breath,
but even more, I stand in awe
when broken people come to him,
hand in hand, hand in hand.
Broken people come to him,
hand in hand.

3. When I consider human kind,
feuding tribes from every land,
I hold my breath,
but even more, I stand in awe
when black and white return to Christ,
hand in hand, hand in hand.
Black and white return to Christ,
hand in hand.

4. When I consider God's own church,
sinful sort of saintly band,
I hold my breath,
but even more, I stand in awe
when sinners come to share God's meal,
hand in hand, hand in hand.
Sinners come to share God's meal,
hand in hand.

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.
