I visited a small church recently and during the worship, we sang the song below. It is so moving. I recommend it to you.

I then shall live as one who’s been forgiven,

I’ll walk in joy to know my debts are paid.

I know my name is clear before my Father

I am His child and I am not afraid.

So greatly pardoned, I’ll forgive my brother,

The law of love I gladly will obey.


I then shall live as one who’s learned compassion.

I’ve been so loved that I’ll risk loving too.

I know how fear builds walls instead of bridges

I’ll dare to see another’s point of view.

And when relationships demand commitment

Then I’ll be there to care and follow through.


Your Kingdom come around and through and in me.

Your power and glory, let them shine through me.

Your hallowed name, O may I bear with honour

And may your living kingdom come in me.

The Bread of Life, O may I share with honour

And may You feed a hungry world through me.


Words – Gloria Gaither

Tune – Finlandia (in most old hymn books) by Siblelius
