Jesus, lamb of God,have mercy on us.
Jesus, bearer of our sins, have mercy on us.
Jesus, redeemer of the world, grant us peace.

The next day, seeing Jesus coming towards him, John said, 'Look, there is the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.' John 1:29

1990. Towards the end of the year I attempted to write a lot of liturgical music. I was hoping to do complete orders containing this music. It's still work in progress and I continue to be unsure whether I want to put out worship orders with music all from one source. I like having the interest that comes from a mixture of musical origins. Anyway, the 'Lamb of God' has always been one of my favourite parts of the church's worship, and this song came out of those uncompleted efforts.


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.
