Stand on the bridge and rise
above the vitriol and hate.
Consider God’s creation our allies.
Abandon condemnation; humanize.
Be Jesus’ light; His love’s innate;
see through our Father’s eyes
New mercy blessed surprise;
let His compassion captivate.
Each fresh dawning filled with grace and defies
what might have been an urge to legalize.
Christ takes the worry, fear and weight
from shoulders warped with sighs
Beloved ones, arise
to be His love, to advocate.
Please do not miss His plea, and recognize
above all else His love offsets all lies
we are not worthy of this state
of grace and freedom; rise!
