God writes our names into the sky

A hymn-poem on the ‘reward’ Jesus said was worth rejoicing over, that the names of those who were prepared to go and heal on his command had their ‘names written in Heaven/the Sky. [Luke 10:20 ]

Tune – LM, ideally ‘Church Triumphant’.

The ‘skyness’ of Heaven is part of the experiential dimension of faith, which of course happens within the unified Creation of ‘Heaven and Earth’

1)When we are sent,  we travel light

not bearing hatred, malice, spite

we warn, alert, and love is why 

God writes our names into the Sky!

2)When we are partners with the Earth-

Our praise is chorus; deep our mirth,

with those who swim and squirm and fly:

God writes our names into the Sky

3)God loves this world’s diverse delight:

paints puffin’s beak so rainbow bright.

We’re made that way, so can’t deny

God writes our names into the Sky!

4)The Earth is frail;  we’re sent to heal;

the danger to all life is real

with every prayer and act we try

God writes our names into the Sky!
