Songs and Prayers from the Community of Taiz 2013

Jesus our joy, the simple desire of your presence is already the beginning of faith. And in
our life, the hidden event of longing causes wellsprings to gush forth: kindness, generosity,
and also that inner harmony which comes from the Holy Spirit in us.
Prayer by Brother Roger of Taiz

Song: Wait for the Lord [refrain - verse - refrain] Ken Pettigrew (MDiv 16), cantor

Wait for the Lord, whose day is near.
   
    
    

 
  
   
          


  
Wait for the Lord: be strong, take heart!
