      name your price


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


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.
