Sweet Love

Pink and burnt sienna roll across the sky
Blue comes along to kiss the moon goodbye
Sweet times! Sweet times! Birds titter and chime
This day is new-born, this is now the time
Let's gift love to the broken-hearted
Mingle our tears over one's who have parted
Purge away bitterness from many past years
Grant forgiveness to those we have greeted with sneers
Be Christ! Be Christ! Oh, give them your all
Be the gentle hand that lifts up from a fall
Show Christ! Show Christ! Don't judge without grace
Let them see His joy in your bright shining face

To give is the gift we should all strive for
To give with sweet love like He gave us before
The cross oh! the cross is our call in this world
The cross where new life was slowly unfurled
Do tell! Do tell! Let salvation's story swell
Do tell of His choice and His saving from Hell
Damnation! Damnation! Oh God, we are free!
You see now your Son when You look down at me
Sweet love! Sweet love! To live glory out
To spread it abroad in His name we're about

Goodnight, goodnight, the time has now come
To rest from your work in the hand of the Son
Sweet peace, sweet peace, sweet peace at His throne
"My child" don't be weary, for you've arrived home
