Wednesday Riff: New Song

Whispered, chanted, hummed,

Blasted, sung or mumbled,

A tune for bad and good singers,

A new song, another kind of music.

Lyrics laced with fresh poetry,

Coursing through our being,

A hopeful kind of DNA,

A new song, another kind of music.

A map for a road less travelled,

A light for a narrow way,

A new song, another kind of music.

A cry for justice, strength, reconciliation,

Rescue, rebirth, space and peace,

The kind of song that helps when we fail,

A new song, another kind of music.

Rooted in reality, earthed in a stable,

Springing from a carpenter’s shop,

Emblazoned on a saving hill.

A new song, another kind of music.

The sound of a gardener in a dawn garden,

The forever presence of a resurrection tune.

A new song, another kind of music.

He has put a new song in my mouth… Psalm 40 v 3

If you've appreciated this, why not...
