Accept Each Other
As Christ Has Accepted You
(Rom 15, 7)

    If Christ accepted us,
    Like maiden rains that bed
    With dust, where streams had sped;

    And we accept a brother,
    As merging currents face
    Each other and embrace;

    And he has raised his eyes
    To Christ, like river mist
    Whose rise the clouds have kissed;

    Then we accept the Lord,
    In circling love, to be
    Outpoured in Christ, our sea,

    Returning sacrifice
    For him and his, for thus
    Has Christ accepted us.
