We find ourselves between two worlds (hymn) — Stephen Best, UK

Tune: Gonfalon Royal

Originally written for Stephen’s ordination service.

 

We find ourselves between two worlds,
In one we live, for one we hope
To risk their fusion is our call,
Achieved through love, which welcomes all.

Achieved through love, which welcomes all,
Which bends and breaks and mends again,
The source of all; and yet it serves;
Eternal friend, divine, at one.

Eternal friend, divine, at one
With us; within, around, beyond.
Love calls us on, we plant its seeds
In hope that this same love will grow.

In hope that this same love will grow,
We bend and break and mend again
Because the goal is worth the pain
We find ourselves between two worlds.

This hymn was included in Stephen’s ordination and induction services and also in a BBC Radio Wales broadcast of a worship service.

‘Anyone wishing to make use of my material in worship should feel free to do so; a simple authorship acknowledgement suffices,’ Stephen.
