"If we are to share His glory,
we're to share in His suffering." *
In days of yore, the Pharisees
despised, distrusted Jesus Christ.
Whatever made US think that we,
His followers, could ever be
more welcomed by the world than He?
O Lord, our God, hard hearts abound.
Our world is just a sinful now.
The task You've given us, Your church,
remains as unacceptable
today as 'twas in days of yore
when You, Yourself, walked on the earth.
Lord, tenderize their hardened hearts.
* Romans 8:17 b

God sends the rains into my life
As constant reminders of grace.
The rain of the world renews growth,
While Spirit’s rain renews my soul.
Into each life, some rain must fall,
It’s how we perceive it that matters.
If rain never came, how would we know
The strength of God’s love and mercy?
