Go Gently, Go Lightly

High Voice Version

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Shirley Erena Murray
Tune Name: NAPIER

Lyrics as Poetry

Go gently, go lightly,
go safe in the Spirit,
live simply, don’t carry
much more than you need:
go trusting God’s kindness,
stay centred on Jesus
and where he will lead.

Go singing, go bringing
the gifts of the Spirit,
go hopefully searching
for things that are true:
in living, in loving,
whatever befall you,
God keep you, God bless you
in all that you do.
