A Hymn in response to the bickering US Presidential Campaign.

What me?

Change the world? No, change me first!

Give us eyes to see

Prayer in action calls us forth

To be more like Thee.

 

Stop the War? No, calm me first!

Give us ears to hear

Inner voices that seek peace

Bringing that Day near.

 

Stop the Hate? No, start with me!

Give us hands that share

All the gifts You give to us

Let us not despair.

 

Christ in us! How can that be?

Godhead humbled, see

Emptied, Jesus on a Cross

Just to set us free?

 

Glory to the Father, Son,

Holy Spirit, be

Ever present in our lives

Change us round to see.
