For all

The young, the old, cash-strapped, work-stressed:
all everywhere aware
of void within, a cry, a quest
for God who is somewhere.

All see the beauty and design
in flower, bird-song, love,
and some reach out for help divine,
revering One above.

And when they hear the simple tale
of him who taught on earth
and showed his power, and helped the frail,
and clearly conquered death

they find he offers wonder gift
for each who struggle now
of pardon, strength, a real life-lift,
and purpose sure to know.

Tune: CMD eg Forest Green or Christmas Carol, tunes of ‘O little town of Bethlehem’
