Where the seeds of love are sown - new hymn

Where the seeds of love are sown - new hymn

a hymn of welcome to the stranger to the tune Love Divine

by Christine Drake on November 3, 2018

(Suggested tune: Love Divine)

Where the seeds of love are sown

Where compassion leaves its mark

There amid life’s many trials

Light will shine within the dark.

When the seeds of justice flourish

Growing into liberty

People suffering in oppression

Will at last then be set free.

Where the seeds of wisdom blossom

When we have the ears to hear,

We will know the transformation

Into freedom from our fear.

Where the seeds of mercy scatter

There forgiveness will be known

Bringing reconciliation,

Peace and joy that all can own.

We are called to be the sowers

In the garden of our land,

May we be forever faithful

Offering an outstretched hand

Drawing in the disempowered

Those whose lives are stripped of choice,

Let us always be their champion

Ever strive to be their voice.

Thank you Christine for a wonderful new hymn for the 21st Century.  A hymn with words aimed at us rather than about us; words that are very relevant and should form the basis of our belief.
