My Father's World

Beautiful Dust

Could all that is lost ever be found?
Could a garden come up from this ground at all?

Little hands, shoeless feet, lonely eyes looking back at me

Will we leave behind the innocent too grieve?

DSCN0823On their own, on the run when their lives have only begun

These could be our daughters and our sons.

And just like a drum I can hear their hearts beating

I know my God won’t let them be defeated.

Every child has a dream to belong and be loved.

Boys become kings, girls will be queens

Wrapped in Your majesty.

When we love, then they will be brave and free

Shout your name in victory

When we love the least of these.

Break our hearts once again

Help us to remember when we were only children hoping for a friend.

Won’t you look around these are the lives that the world has forgotten

Waiting for doors of our hearts and our homes to open?

DSCN0818

If not us who will be like Jesus to the least of these?

If not us tell me who will be like Jesus to the least of these?

DSCN0810

Hope is springing up from this old ground
Out of chaos life is being found in You

You make beautiful things.
You make beautiful things out of the dust.

You make beautiful things.
You make beautiful things out of us.
