God of Mercy You Have Shown Us

"God of mercy, you have shown us ways of living that are good:
'Work for justice, treasure kindness, humbly journey with the Lord.'"

So begins a new hymn lamenting gun violence written by the Rev. Carolyn Winfrey Gillette.

The hymn is available with the melody line [PDF] and without the melody line. The hymn may be used in services on September 21, the International Day of Peace, or other appropriate occasions. Details on copyright information and usage appear with the hymn.

Carolyn is the author of Songs of Grace:  New Hymns for God and Neighbor and Gifts of Love: New Hymns for Today’s Worship and the co-pastor of Limestone Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, Delaware.

"Help us change this violent culture based on idols, built on fear.
Help us build a peaceful future with your world of people here."
