Entwining Circles

Tune: Waly Waly : Celebration Hymnal 399 Common Praise 129 ( Words usually sung to this tune - When I survey the wondrous cross) H&P 594 - Song: An Upper Room did our Lord prepare

Note: As in many folk songs the words need to be sung freely! (midi file of tune . Waly Waly on Wikipedia)

  1. •  The earth is crying out for love;
    The love of those who seek the way
    To bring forth justice, peace and joy
    Into the hearts of all today.

  2. •  Entwining circles, life and death,
    Join us with sea and earth and sky.
    Beast, fishes, birds are one with us.
    In hurting one we hurt all life.

  3. •  What can we do to turn the tide;
    To help create a fairer world?
    To stop pollution and abuse?
    To sow the seeds of life not death?
  1. •  We may feel down, we may despair.
    The part we play may seem so small.
    How can we hope with just one loaf
    To meet the future needs of all?

  2. •  Let us remember as we sing,
    When given up to bless and share,
    Five barley loaves and two small fish,
    Fed thousands with enough to spare.

  3. •  So we believe, Creator God,
    We make a difference when we say
    Like that young boy with two small fish,
    " Here, take and share my gifts today."

  1. •  Then justice, peace and joy will reign,
    When we join hearts and hands as one
    And play our part, however small
    And pray as one, Thy Kingdom come.
