There is no healing

 

Lord, 
There is no healing
In dogmas, rules and creeds –

For only a relationship with you  
Can meet my needs. 

Lord,
There’s no forgiveness
In formal prayers of shame –  

For only a relationship with you  
Will clear my blame.

Lord,
There’s no salvation,
In attending church each week –

For only a relationship with you
Gives what I seek. 

Lord,
There is no kingdom 
To be found beyond my soul –

For only a relationship with you
Can make me whole.

The kingdom of God

Friends, let us live
In the kingdom of God,

For though other people
Might think we are odd,

As we love, and forgive,
As we serve, and rejoice,

We will show all we meet
They can make the same choice.
