Tossed and blown, events can floor us
spin the world, we lose our grip;
circumstances undermine us,
yet again we turn and trip.
But in spite of all this turmoil
love will build us up through grace,
then in gentleness and patience
we will cope with all we face.
Humble people bound together
in God’s unity and peace,
building up Christ’s human body
in this life we share on lease.
(Andrew Pratt, 2012)
