CHANGING MY THINKING ABOUT CRIMINALS
DEACON BLUE'S CITY OF LOVE, THE HOLY CITY AND BUILDING A CITY OF GRACE

BUILDING A CITY OF GRACE - a poem

City of Grace

BUILDING A CITY OF GRACE

(inspired by a song by Mike Scott called Building a City Of Light)

 

Spin out the yarn and weave potent surprise

Building a city of grace

Rivet the steel in tough willed compromise 

Building a city of grace

See the wonder of enemies through Jesus eyes

Building a city of grace

Rhyme poems and histories without lies

Building a city of grace

 

Saracens transforming into surgical beds

Building a city of grace

Bullets repenting into colouring lead

Building a city of grace

The guilty redeemed into contributors instead

Building a city of grace

Our feasts all sacrificed so the hungry are fed

Building a city of grace

 

In every building

On all our streets

Love the language

As neighbours greet

In prison yards

And Church retreats

Grace the force

When politicians meet

 

See the wonder of enemies through Jesus eyes

Building a city of grace

Rhyme poems and histories without lies

Building a city of grace.
