Proclaiming Love

Now when Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and proclaim his message in their cities. When John heard in prison what the Messiah was doing, he sent word by his disciples and said to him, “Are you the one who is to come, or are we to wait for another?” Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have good news brought to them. And blessed is anyone who takes no offense at me.” Matthew 11:1-6
Proclaim Love

The light is rising over the shadows
the sun is lengthening our days 
fear has made room for strength
terror overshadowed by compassion.

Children across our continent
roar fearless and fully justified
our work is love and protection
no one should be sacrificed.

The days are coming when ancestors
will gather like stars in the night sky
they will dance to purify this home
they will sing to bring a new dawn.

We will be the trumpets of love
the symphony of fearless understanding
the doors that open wide for all
the singers who will bring in new hope.
