The National Anthem ~ a post Diamond Jubilee verse

Now blest through passing years
By God midst joys and tears
In our Queen’s reign;
Duty and loyalty
Make us one family –
Formed in diversity:
The whole world’s gain!

The National Anthem ~ a Diamond Jubilee verse

Now blest these sixty years
By God midst joys and tears
In our Queen’s reign;
Duty and loyalty
Make us one family –
Sharing God’s jubilee:
The whole world’s gain!

Easter Round

Father we adore you

Jesus, we obey you:
Break the bread to receive you –
So we know you.

Dying, we abuse you:
Father’s love within you:
Death o’ertakes you.

Spirit then restores you:
Easter’s dawn reveals you.
All saved by you!
