A Noble Work (songs of love and mercy) original lyrics

A Noble Work

In your arms
You held your son
Like so many women do
He was sad
Tears in his eyes
He needed you
 
With mothers all over the world what a tender scene
With mothers all over the world pouring out your heart
 
A noble work
Such a noble work you said
I could only agree down by the sea
So far from home
A noble work
Such a noble work I saw
There in that place
A moment of grace
For sure.
 
I was touched
By your words
They were your gift to me
As plain as day
I could see
such dignity
 
With mothers all over the world what a tender scene
With mothers all over the world pouring out your heart
 
A noble work
Such a noble work you said
I could only agree down by the sea
So far from home 
A noble work
Such a noble work I saw
There in that place
A moment of grace
For sure.
 
The look on your face
your gentle embrace
holding him close
keeping him safe
You are his world
 
A noble work
Such a noble work I saw
There in that place
A moment of grace for sure
As plain as day
A moment of grace for sure
Holding him close
A moment of grace for sure
 

 The One

With God’s Only Son
It’s all about the one
It’s all about the one
Who goes astray
Whatever’s been done
Whatever may come
It’s all about the one
All about the one
 
One sheep, lost in the wasteland
One sheep, out in the cold
When found, what jubilation
The sheep that was lost is found
 
One coin, from ten silver pieces
One coin, lost in the house
When found, what jubilation
The coin that was lost is found
 
With God’s Only Son
It’s all about the one
It’s all about the one
Who goes astray
Whatever’s been done
Whatever may come
It’s all about the one
All about the one
 
One son, lost to his father
One son, lost to himself
When found, what jubilation
The son that was lost is found
 
The One, sent by the Father
The One, who suffered and died
Third day, what jubilation
God’s only Son is alive
 
He heals, those who are burdened
He seeks, those who are lost
Each one, beloved and cherished
Inviting us all to be one
 
With God’s Only Son
It’s all about the one
It’s all about the one
Who goes astray
Whatever’s been done
Whatever may come
It’s all about the one
All about the one
 
 
A Place for me

Jesus ate with sinners
Seems there’s a place for me
He cast out the demons
Seems there’s a place for me
If I wander on the edges
Afraid and out of place
Jesus walks there with me
Offering his grace.
 
Jesus knows my questions
Seems there’s a place for me
My worries and addictions
Seems there’s a place for me
If I find myself just drifting
Wondering where to start
Jesus stands there with me
Offering his heart.
Yes, there’s a place for me
A place for me.
 
Jesus chose disciples
Is there a place for me?
Will you sit and listen?
Is there a place for me?
For I need some reassurance
Compassion and release
That Jesus is here with me
Offering his peace
 
Will you be disciple and
Eat my humble bread?
Will you be disciple and
Live like Jesus said?
It may not be so easy
Or comfortable for sure
But will you act for Jesus knocking at my door
Yes, there’s a place for me
A place for me
 
I maybe familiar
Or someone off the street
And even surprise you
When finally we meet
Never underestimate the power in your hands
And what it means to sit beside
Someone who understands
Yes, there’s a place for me
A place for me.
Yes, there’s a place for me
A place for me.
 
 
Breathe out your spirit
 
Mary we turn and we look at your face
Honour your presence as one full of grace
You are our dear Mother for you bore the Son
Thanks to your fiat
Be it done, be it done
 
Breathe out your spirit
The Spirit of God flows through your veins
Breathe out your spirit
The Spirit of God cannot be tamed
We bear your name
 
Hail holy Mother of Mercy renew
Your sons and your daughters who here look to you
Help us to walk in the light of your Son
And echo your spirit
Be it done be it done
 
Breathe out your spirit….
 
Mary we turn and we look at your face
Honour your presence as one full of grace
You are our dear Mother for you bore the Son
Thanks to your fiat
Be it done, be it done
