Your Sunday Hymn: Return To God

Presenting “Return to God”, a  hymn for Lent by Marty Haugen and nicely sung by St. Mary’s Singers of Mary, Mother of the Church Parish in La Crosse, Wisconsin:

Lyrics:

Return to God

Refrain:

Return to God with all your heart, the source of grace and mercy;
Come seek the tender faithfulness of God

Now the time of grace has come, the day of salvation;
Come and learn now the way of our God. (Refrain)

I will take your heart of stone and place a heart within you,
A heart of compassion and love. (Refrain)

If you break the chains of oppression,
If you set the pris’ner free;
If you share your bread with the hungry,
Give protection to the lost;
Give shelter to the homeless,
Clothe the naked in your midst,
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn. (Refrain)
