If you’re wondering what to wear today
And celebrated Jesus’ passion
Then what you put on is more about heart
Than what’s the latest fashion.
Compassion means “to suffer with”
And kindness softens words
Humility puts others first
And meekness seeks to serve
Patience lets us bear with Love
Forgive as He’s forgiven
Such Love is what we’re bound together by
And life from which we’re living.
The peace of Christ that rules our hearts
Over all competing Lords
Allows us to be filled with thanks
Making ploughs out of our swords.
When the Word of Christ dwells richly
With gratitude in our hearts
No matter our particular place
We will each contribute our parts
In the chorus of creation
The symphony of praise
And we will find eternity
Is filled with just such days
To do whatever the day invites
In the nature & Love of Christ
Not imagining the power we wield
But honoring His Sacrifice.
