Come Hear

Listen, a bell is ringing.

Listen, voices are singing.

This is where the mountains

Climb to the sky,

Where the world is painted,

And words are songs.

Where the past meets the present,

And comes back to life.

This is where God dances.

This is where God plays.

Listen, children are laughing.

Listen, hands are clapping.

Five, six, seven generations,

Two hundred years we gather.

This is where the steeple reaches

For the sky,

And the doors are open for

All to come inside.

Where broken souls are welcome,

And heavy hearts can heal.

This is where God speaks.

This is where God opens up his arms.

Listen, the mountains are singing.

Listen, someone is praying.

Here is where we bow our heads

Here is where we pray,

This is where we come

To laugh and cry.

This is where we come

When we need to

Listen.
