Out of the depths of His infinite love,
Jesus was sent from the Father above.
One day the Holy Spirit came like a dove,
And the Father said, “This is the Son I love.”

While we were sinners, Jesus laid down his life.
The Prince of Peace was destined to suffer strife.
In the midst of His trials He promised us peace,
And that one day all of our troubles would cease.

The peace that He promised begins in our heart.
And the forgiveness of our sins is the start.
Those who are forgiven must also forgive.
Carrying grudges is no way to live.

He died to make us sisters and brothers,
And He taught us to love one another.
So why put on mask in front of each other?
Let us be honest with one another.

He calls us to live with devotion and zeal.
Our love for Him and each other must be real.
It must not be an act we are playing.
And no matter what we must keep praying.

We owe each other honour and respect.
That is exactly what Jesus would expect .
With one another we must grieve and mourn.
That is one reason that Jesus was born.

We need to be reminded of the great story,
That Jesus came to lead us to glory.
Our pain will be nothing to worry about,
When Jesus, our Savior, returns with a shout.

The inexplicable has happened in Canada.
Six men were killed while worshiping Allah.
That a man would do this is hard to believe.
Surely God in Heaven must be sorely grieved.

We feel that in this great country we are safe.
This horrible news makes our hearts and minds chafe.
When will this senseless violence come to an end?
When again to this world will God His Son send?

This world we live in is in such a mess.
We often hear of news that causes great distress.
Senseless cruelty and death causes us to moan.
Until Christ comes again creation must groan.

The angels sang God’s praises at Jesus’ birth.
They announced that he came to bring peace on earth.
Yet we see that this world is hardly at peace.
The atrocities never seem to cease.

In this period of trial and tension,
We eagerly await our redemption.
We know that our Father is on His throne,

But we know that for now all creation groans.
