Hymn – Dear Lord, where are the signs of hope

Dear Lord, where are the signs of hope,
the echoes of new birth?
Where will we find the shafts of light;
God’s grace notes for the earth?
Could we be what our neighbours need
to bring the great Good News?
Could we reveal the love of God
and walk in Jesus’ shoes?

How do we touch this fragile world
and bring the Christ-light near?
How do we earn the right to speak
of love that conquers fear?
We need to know your Spirit’s power...

This was written to mark the start of the Rev Dr Martyn Atkins’
year as President of the Methodist Conference and sung at
the opening of Conference in Blackpool, early July 2007.
Shortly afterwards it was named as one of the winners in
the 2007 BBC Radio 2 and Local Radio Hymn Writing
competition. The prize was to have a tune written for it.
