Lyric For The Day 17.1.12 from Down There By The Train by Tom Waits

Lyric For The Day 19. 2.12 from Come Healing by Leonard Cohen

LC Old Ideas

“O, solitude of longing
Where love has been confined
Come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind

O, see the darkness yielding
That tore the light apart
Come healing of the reason
Come healing of the heart

O, troubledness concealing
An undivided love
The heart beneath is teaching
To the broken heart above.”

-       From Come Healing by Leonard Cohen

Our Assistant Minister used this Cohen lyric today during the offering and asked us to give our brokenness to God. It was in the midst of a service based around Hosea chapter 14, closing out our series on that Old Testament book. These words fitted snugly.
