Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.
The Lord will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.
Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.
Love and faithfulness meet together
Lord I love the idea of love and faithfulness meeting.
Faithfulness coming from the earth, from the heart of Your people.
Leaping upward where we are grasped by Your arms of love.
You look down upon us with fairness and guide us home to You.
You give us all that is good and prepare us as Your harvest.
All these godly virtues – love, faithfulness, righteousness and peace embracing in an intimate kiss – show us that one leads to another and we are to follow.
When I face hate, I am to show love.
When I am filled with doubt, I still reach upward with what little faith I find.
When I see injustice, I fight for the truth.
When I find myself in conflict, I chose peace.
My trembling hand reaches out to You in faith and You calmly lift me up in love.
Your touch, Lord, is powerful. Enough to change the world and the hearts of Your people.
