Hymn for journeying and discovery

O Gracious God, your love for us is yearning,

Deep in our hearts, you still our doubts and fears;

Blessing with love, so great and so abundant,

Come to us now and be with us, so still.

Come now and rest your blessing in our Spirit,

Come now and rest your blessing in our hearts,

You are our God, and we your loving children;

Who travel on life’s path and find in you our goal.

 

O Jesus Christ, you walk this earth, as we do;

Making us whole, with every step you take.

Teaching all people, with the words of healing

And reaching outward to the lost and loved.

Come now and challenge all our social boundaries,

Come now and challenge all that comfort brings;

You are our God and we your loving children,

Who travel on life’s path, abundant with your love.

 

O Holy Spirit, breathing through creation,

Touching all life with energizing power;

Guiding us through the trials and temptations,

That block our journey on our way to God.

Come now and breathe your gentle breath,-enfold us;

Come now and breathe your comfort when it hurts;

You are our God and we your loving children,

Who travel on life’s path, to our eternal home.

Tune Londonderry air
