We Meet You, O Christ

Author: Fred Kaan, 1929- Meter: Appears in 10 hymnals Matching Instances: 4 First Line: We meet you, O Christ, in many a guise Lyrics: 1 We meet you, O Christ, in many a guise; your image we see in simple and wise. You live in a palace, exist in a shack. We see you, the gardener, a tree on your back. 2 In millions alive, away and abroad, involved in our life, you live down the road. Imprisoned in systems, you long to be free. We witness you, Jesus, still bearing your tree. 3 We hear you, O *Man, in agony cry; for freedom you march, in riots you die. Your face in the papers we read and we see. The tree must be planted by human decree. 4 You choose to be made at one with the earth; the dark of the grave prepares for your birth. Your death is your rising, creative your word: the tree springs to life and our hope is restored! * or Christ Scripture: Matthew 25:31-40 Used With Tune: STANLEY BEACH

In Water We Grow

Author: Brian Wren, 1936- Meter: Appears in 4 hymnals Matching Instances: 2 First Line: In water we grow, secure in the womb Lyrics: 1 In water we grow, secure in the womb, and speechlessly know love's safety and room. Baptizing and blessing, we publish for good the freeing, caressing safekeeping of God. 2 In water we wash: the dirt of each day, its trouble and rush are carried away. In Christ recreated by love's cleansing art, self will and self hatred dissolve and depart. 3 In water we dive, and cannot draw breath, then surface alive, rebounding from death. Our old self goes under, in Christ dead and drowned. We rise, washed in wonder, by love clad and crowned. 4 In water we dwell, for by its deep flow through bloodstream and cell, we live, think, and grow. Praise God, love outflowing, whose well of new birth baptizes our knowing, and waters the earth. Scripture: 1 Corinthians 10:1-4 Used With Tune: STANLEY BEACH
