“Our God Is Holding Us Together Now”


It’s been so long since we have been together in this place

Lifted voices up in praise, or greeted a smiling face

We are the same people still

But we are not the same

As what we know turns upside down

We trust in what remains:



We are held in the sacred story of beloved community

Of laughter, tears and faithful work

To dream God’s glorious dream

Yet even though we’re far apart

Our faith tells us somehow

Our God is holding us together now



Learning how to be the church in new and different ways

Knowing that the love we share will give us strength today

To work for justice, love and hope, till all have what they need

Till what God wills comes to the world

For righteousness and peace



We know we are held in Love

until we meet once more

Cherished friends, or even those we haven’t met before

We’ll give thanks for all the saints who’ve shown the way of faith

And we’ll share in new things to come as we trust God leads the way
