Help Us Not To Walk Away

 

When we’re in the presence of pain, Grace, give us strength not to hide/

however the pain may show itself – in anger and even in violence/ in depression and despair/ in paralysing fear or constant anxiety/ 

There is all this pain around us, Grace/ help us not to walk away

 

When we’re in the presence of love, Grace, give us strength not to hide/

however the love may show itself – in trust and in faithfulness/ in kindness and in reliance/ in selflessness and challenge/

There is all this love around us, Grace/ help us not to walk away
