A touching place
Tune: Dream Angus (Scottish Traditional)

 

Christís is the world in which we move;

Christís are the folk weíre summoned to love;

Christís is the voice which calls us to care,

and Christ is the one who meets us here.

            To the lost Christ shows his face,

            to the unloved he gives his embrace,

            to those who cry in pain or disgrace

            Christ makes, with his friends, a touching place.

 

Feel for the people we must avoid -

strange or bereaved or never employed.

Feel for the women and feel for the men

who fear that their living is all in vain.

            To the lost.............

 

Feel for the parents whoíve lost their child,

feel for the women whom men have defiled,

feel for the baby for whom thereís no breast,

and feel for the weary who find no rest.

            To the lost..............

 

Feel for the lives by life confused,

riddled with doubt, in loving abused;

feel for the lonely heart, conscious of sin,

which longs to be pure but fears to begin.

            To the lost.................
