We Wait the Peaceful Kingdom

Author: Kathleen R. Moore Meter: D Appears in 1 hymnal Lyrics: 1 We wait the peaceful kingdom, when wolf and lamb shall lie in gentleness and friendship without a fear or sigh, when lion shall be grazing, when snake shall never strike; a little child shall lead us both strong and weak alike. 2 Where is the peaceful kingdom? When will this new day start? We long for peace and comfort to reign within each heart. Yet not in our lives only, nor simply in our home: we pray that all creation will one day find shalom. 3 When wars of desolation and hate come to an end, when nation meets with nation and calls the other "friend," still peace in all its fullness will only have begun: shalom for all creation begins with justice done. 4 That little child shall lead us to walk the chosen way, to share the peaceful kingdom, to greet God's newborn day. The child born in a stable is sent to break our chains, to bring through word and table the day when justice reigns.

Psalm 84: How Lovely, Lord, How Lovely

Author: Arlo D. Duba, b. 1929 Meter: Appears in 18 hymnals First Line: How lovely, Lord, how lovely is your abiding place Lyrics: 1 How lovely, Lord, how lovely is your abiding place; my soul is longing, fainting, to feast upon your grace. The sparrow finds a shelter, a place to build her nest, and so your temple calls us within its walls to rest. 2 In your blest courts to worship, O God, a single day is better than a thousand if I from you should stray. I’d rather keep the entrance and claim you as my Lord than revel in the riches the ways of sin afford. 3 A sun and shield forever are you, O Lord Most High; you shower us with blessings; no good will you deny. The saints, your grace receiving, from strength to strength shall go, and from their life shall rivers of blessing overflow. Topics: Faith Scripture: Psalm 84 Used With Tune: MERLE'S TUNE

The World Is Full of Stories

Author: Alan Gaunt, 1935- Meter: D Appears in 1 hymnal Lyrics: 1 The world is full of stories, of stories that have passed to us along the ages; great stories that still last, to tell of human feelings drawn deep from heart and mind, more true than fact: their meaning the surest we can find. 2 The world is full of stories, new stories people tell, and young and old come under the storyteller's spell which stirs imagination and opens wide our eyes to duty and conviction, to wonder and surprise. 3 The world is full of stories that capture and enthral; but joyful faith discovers that one transcends them all: God's love as told in Jesus, who shared our life on earth, and human recreation beginning at his birth. 4 It tells us of the anguish God's love was bound to bear, to conquer death and evil and fathom our despair. As we repeat the story, hope comes to life and thrives, to make the love of Jesus the story of our lives. Scripture: Acts 24:10-21 Used With Tune: MERLE'S TUNE

Her Baby, Newly Breathing

Author: Brian Wren Meter: D Appears in 2 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Her baby, newly breathing, with wailing needful cry, by Mary kissed and cradled, is lulled in lullaby. Long months of hope and waiting, the thrill and fear of birth, are crowned with exultation, and God is on the earth. 2 The eyes that gaze at Mary have yet to name or trace the world of shape and color, or recognize a face; yet Holiness Eternal is perfectly expressed in hands that clutch unthinking, and lips that tug the breast. 3 The milk of life is flowing as Mary guides and feeds her wordless Word, embodied in infant joys and needs. Enormous, formless strivings, and yearnings deep and wide, be-cradled in communion, are fed and satisfied. 4 How mother-like the Wisdom that carried and gave birth to all things, seen and unseen, and nurtured infant earth: unstinting, unprotected, prepared for nail and thorn, constricted into maleness, and of a woman born.
