The Gentle Face of Love

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Walter Farquharson
Tune Name: PARKSVILLE

Lyrics as Poetry

The gentle face of love is shown
in smiles and hugs and prayers.
We’re wrapped in love that is of God
through tears and laughter shared.

When friends are gathered in this place,
Christ-spirit lives and grows.
The strength and healing trusted here
through each to other flows.

The joy of God’s love now enfolds
to claim for life our days.
No power exists to break this bond.
No pain can silence praise.

God, hold in love, in hope, in trust
the moments of our lives
until your new and promised day
in each, for all, shall rise.
