This week’s song is called Love Divine. The theme is unity by the work of the Spirit in the Body of Christ- taking weak, sinful humans and transforming them into one body that died to sin with Christ, and was raised to life to be an instrument of God’s love.

Love Divine

Spirit weave our bones together,
We are worn and lie in death
Build us back into a temple
By your life reviving breath.

This week’s song looks at four different metaphors for Christ that are found in both the Old and New Testaments.

Promise of Heaven

Promise of Heaven and star of the morning
Blinding our pride in the light of your rising
Burn through the shadow of death in our eyes
Parting darkness, restore our sight
Lead us from lives that are clouded and torn
Into the light of a world that has been reborn.

This week’s song is a prayer for discernment- to know God’s will and have the strength to follow it.

Lift Up My Eyes

Lift up my eyes to see the path you tend
Light every step, let wisdom take my hand
Guide my tired and dying feet
Into a life that has no end.
