More Than Kindness

What foolishness our lives have wrought
When seeking only to be good
When living as if all you wanted
Was for us to be nice and kind
if we could

There is much more to life than kindness
Though that must not be pushed aside
No, to live and walk in your way
That life’s worth pursuing
In you it abides

Show us today the truth of your glory
That to which we are called to enjoy
Let our time of worship fill us
With a greater expectation
Of unending joy

Then send us out from the Sanctuary
Our hearts filled with courage and awe
Lead us out to the people around us
To bring hope to this world
Full of flaws

Make our lives all you hope they could be
Let us not settle for less than your joy
Fill us with your pure living water
Then pour it out from our hearts
Now employed
