I Believe

I have never doubted the world to come

Faith came as a child

God was close in Jesus

And in his mother mild

The story set in Bethlehem

The gospel and the cross

The glorious rising Easter day

The recovery from loss


The presence of this risen Lord

The daily call to pray

The nearness of the Lord to us

His closeness every day

It all makes perfect sense to me

The gospel teaching true

Love of God and neighbour

Great though hard to do


The paradox of suffering

The carrying of the cross

The ways of love in everything

Even when all seems lost

The pointlessness of argument

Cold comfort of the mind

The secret of the heart’s delight

The beauty in being kind
