Love Songs of Life

(2nd Sunday after the Epiphany, Year C; click here for biblical texts)

For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent
for my beloved I shall speak
love without end
my heart pouring out extravagantly
like wine at Cana when Jesus
called out by his mother
began to serve and lead.
Can we not understand
this metaphor God pours
the best from first to last
no holding back
no matter who you are
what you have done not done.
No accident that the first
miracle a wedding
what God wants all the time
a marriage made on earth
as in heaven uniting us
soul to soul brides and grooms
of Christ without borders
saying yes to living
trusting the One who loves
no end everyone invited
to the feast dance.
Don’t know the steps
does not matter
listen watch try
God will show you
Spirit will spin you
Jesus grabs your hand
asks may I have this dance
for life for love for joy
away you go heels high
heart higher groovin’ with the Lord
Glory Halleujah!
for Zion’s sake I will not keep silent
singing dancing
love songs of life
