Leaves for Healing

Leaves for Healing

 

There’s a tree that offers life

To all creation drawing breath

Gather now leaves of renewal

Choosing life instead of death

 

God is calling us to mend all

Broken nations on this globe

And the leaves provide the healing

Hope and wholeness, Christ-like love.

 

There’s a shrub supplying shade

To broken-hearted, desperate souls

Gather now leaves of compassion

Be with those cast out, alone

 

God is calling us to mend all

Broken nations on this globe

And the leaves provide the healing

Hope and wholeness, Christ-like love.

 

There’s a vine that flows forgiveness

Second chances, mercy grown

Gather now leaves of redemption

Share communion’s holy home

 

God is calling us to mend all

Broken nations on this globe

And the leaves provide the healing

Hope and wholeness, Christ-like love.
