Joy in our clay praise in our ashes reminded of our failings and of your perfection
Happy in repentance in the arms of your grace feeling love within us in the light of your face
Washing over us cascades of redemption the living waters of creation now rivers of salvation
God giving us anew in this season of reflection an opportunity for connection communion with our Lord
Walking more closely cleaving to our Savior guided by the Spirit out into the world
Sharing the message the light of Brother yoked with our Master doing his holy work
