A Hymn for Families Sung to the tune “LUCIUS; 2 nd tune for AHB 367 “All Praise to our Redeeming Lord’. Written for a service held at an extended Bishop family reunion. We thank you for our family Lord; For those who love and care, Who through all times of good and ill Are ever there to share. We thank you for the happy times Of laughter, stories, song, When hearts are warmed and memories shared And friendships made more strong. We thank you for the hands that help When we are weak and lame; For patient understanding when We are the cause of pain. We pray that we may always be Fair and kind and just To other family members and Be worthy of their trust. But tell, who is our family Lord? Parent, daughter, son? We all are children of one God; Together we are one! So mindful may we ever be Of human sanctity; Remembering that we are one world And one humanity. - Jeff Bishop St Margaret’s News 5 c2000 July 2019
