This song is about how we carry experiences of both beauty and pain at the same time – within ourselves and in our communities. It's about inviting God to come and be Godself among us, in new ways.

Track Name: Come Be You
you are the king who speaks peace to nations

you are the father who runs down to the child

you are the warrior who comes with hands to heal

you are the strong one who sings

you are the mother who bears the pain of children
you are the shepherd who carries the weak

you are the midwife who labours with us all night
you are the lover who dreams

come be you in my weakness

come be you in my grief

come be you in my celebrations / come be you when I bleed

come be you in my expectancy

name yourself in my hearing
teach me words that are true

touch the coal to my mouth

paint new pictures of yourself

come be mother

come be father
