Reflection

Thinking about the theme of gratitude and adventure, the words of a Brian Wren hymn, (667 in Together in Song), come to mind:

 

1 How shall I sing to God when life is filled with gladness,
loving and birth, wonder and worth?
I’ll sing from the heart,
thankfully receiving, joyful in believing.
This is my song, I’ll sing it with love.

2 How shall I sing to God when life is filled with bleakness,
empty and chill, breaking my will?
I’ll sing through my pain,
angrily or aching, crying or complaining
This is my song, I’ll sing it with love.

3 How shall I sing to God and tell my Saviour’s story:
passover bread, life from the dead?
I’ll sing with my life,
witnessing and giving, risking and forgiving.
This is my song, I’ll sing it with love.
