1. We know how good this land can be,
we’ve seen what it can grow
when rain has fallen as it can
and all the rivers flow.

2. But when the clouds refuse to break
for days & months & years
the land becomes a barren place
and hope, it disappears.

O hear our prayer,
we know you care.
Hear us today and always.(repeat)

3. O God, you fashion every hill,
you flatten every plain.
You must have heard the crying ground,
come down and make it rain.

O hear our prayer,
we know you care.
Hear us today and always. (repeat)

4. Why don’t you tear the sky apart
— you know our desperate plight?
You hear the cries, you see the tears,
O come and set things right.

ALWS 29/5/24

In May 2023 we travelled to the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia, seeing work supported by Australian Lutheran World Service. Dorothy and I are Ambassadors for the ALWS programme, Lives You Touch. We are encouraging people to leave money in their will for the work of ALWS. We committed to leave a third of our will many years ago and hope many others can touch lives in this way.

Last year we visited churches in SA, Vic, Qld and WA with Jonathan & Julie Krause promoting the cause of ALWS.

Coming up soon:

* Nuriootpa (St Petri) Saturday June 22, 4 pm

To be confirmed:
Bordertown July 28,
Everton Park (Qld) August 17,
Canberra August 24 

Looking forward to seeing you at one of these events
