RAIN PRAYER

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.

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.
