Written for Ash Wednesday, 2012. Based on the Joel 2 passage, one of the Ash Wednesday readings, and other elements of the Ash Wednesday liturgy,


You hate nothing you have made,
Even when we turn away.
We are cloaked in darkest gloom;
There is no shadow of turning with you.
There is no shadow of turning with you.

Rend your hearts and not your garments.
Tell the people come:
Bring your children, even infants come,
Return to the holy one,
O come, return to the Son,

Our sick and wicked ways you know.
With broken hearts we bow down low.
We remember we are dust.
God of mercy, do not turn your face from us.
Oh God of mercy, do not turn your face from us.

Full of grace, full of mercy,
Slow to anger, abounding in love without end.
