Motherless Child

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child...

Here may you find
a warm greeting
a kind word
a gentle touch

Sometimes I feel like I have no friend...

Here may you find
a community of support
a pulse of liberation
a vision of hope

Sometimes I feel I am almost gone...

Here may you find
a song to sing
a moment of silence
a hand to hold

Even when you are a long way from home...

may these walls give you shelter
may this community break through your loneliness
And may you feel the embrace of a larger Spirit of Life and Love.

Come, let us worship together.
