The Kingdom Of Heaven

Matthew 22:1-14

 

We receive an invitation every day

Welcome to the world and to your life

You are invited to participate

There is a place for you

Bring joy to all this gathering

And bring a partner too

 

The rule of law and order keeps us safe

We’ve known no war

No hostile action here

But others aren’t so lucky

They live with constant threat

Some seek our shores in dinghies

And risk the wind and wet

 

We’ll need to work together

If we are to survive

Long years of selfish living

Make it hard to turn the tide

Society needs connection

Not isolated lives

And the spirit of perfection

Of holiness inside
