By Margaret Rossi.
Go outside into the sunshine
let its warmth upon you shine.
You will find the joy in living
God will grant you peace of mind.
In creation there is beauty
God has given us this gift.
All its peace and all its splendour
give our spirits such a lift.
Because each of us is struggling
we’ll reach out to everyone
for our hands held out in friendship
are the hands for Christ the Son.
As we face this time of testing,
help us all to carry on
‘til we’ve fought and won the battle
with the virus and it’s gone.
Through our struggles with these lockdowns
give us peace within our hearts.
God you’ll always be beside us
from our side you’ll not depart.
