    10 January 2016 – Song of the Earth.

    10 January 2016 – Song of the Earth.
    January 10, 2016 Hazel Parsons

    What is the song that cradles the earth?
    Is it Lord, a song springing from
    The deep wells of life
    At the heart of the world?
    Is the song of joy or of judgement?
    Is it the song of hope?

    It is the love song of the Father
    Encircling the earth and all time and space;
    The song drawn from the Breath of the Spirit
    Making its way to our hearts.

    Your song calls, Heavenly Father,
    Your Voice, sometimes seemingly
    Unheard,
    Calls incessantly out of the void,
    Pleading for us to hear,
    To listen to the music
    Of joy and of lament.

    When we open our hearts we hear it:
    In the cry or the gurgle of a baby,
    In the chuckle or tears of a child,
    In the plea of a mother,
    The sob of a father,
    The desperation of youth
    Of adult and aged.
    In laughter and smiles
    In celebration and singing
    We can open ourselves to the Heart of the Father.

    Yours is the Voice, the Word that called
    All Creation into being
    We praise you and give you thanks
    That you teach us to listen
    To hear you.
    In silence and in the crowd,
    In the wind and in busy traffic,
    We can hear your Song
    The song of Justice and Mercy
    That cradles the earth.
    Amen                  Hazel Parsons
