In Our Brokeness

In a broken world
In a broken time
In a broken place
Healing comes

For broken people
For broken ties
For broken peace
Wholeness comes

To broken hearts
To broken minds
To broken spirits
Hope now comes

A Father; a Son
A manger; a cross
God and man
Life and death

Into our darkness
Into our pain
Into our brokeness
Love now breaks

A Father; a Son
A manger; a cross
God and man
Life and death

Into our world
Love now breaks

Shepherds Watch

What a night
Amazing sight
Shepherds keep watch
O’er the Shepherd of Life

Those who watched
By star light
Called to see
Our Watcher of night

Leaving their flocks
Now they find
Our King who left
Majesty behind

Lacking all
They receive
Emmanuel
As the angels sing

God in the Midst

In the midst of preparations
In the midst of our plans
In the midst of our waiting
God is here

In the midst of distractions
In the midst of our fears
In the midst of our turmoil
God is here

In the midst of our despairing
In the midst of our tears
In the midst of our night
God is here

In the midst of our rejoicing
In the midst of our praise
In the midst of our songs
God is here

In the midst of all our moments
In the midst of all our days
In the midst of woe or blessing
God is here
