Have This Love

 

Have_This_Love_thumb-231x300Yesterday, Rev. Wells’ sermon was The Love Laboratory. In keeping with that theme, the choir did an anthem of mine. The words are below.

HAVE THIS LOVE

scriptural reference 1 Peter 2-3
scriptural paraphrase by Hilton Kean Jones

CHORUS
Have a tender heart, a humble mind,
sympathy, unity of spirit.
Have this live: love for one another.
Have this love. Have this love.

VERSE 1
Do not fear what others fear.
In your heart, rest within God’s love.
Once you were without a home.
Now you live, live within God’s love.

CHORUS
Have a tender heart…

VERSE 2
Come to Christ, the living stone,
such a jewel, precious to our hearts.
Rid yourselves, of all malice,
and all guile, envy and all slander.

CHORUS
Have a tender heart…

BRIDGE
God called you out of darkness
into the light of living love.
Though if you suffer wrong
for doing what is right,
you are loved, you are loved.

CHORUS
Have a tender heart…
