Hymn: In the temple, place of peace (version 2)

Mothering Sunday

Luke 2:22-40

In the temple, place of peace,
Mary, Joseph, stand in awe;
Anna comes with songs of joy,
Simeon sings, yet knows the score.

Bitter sweet this time of hope,
winter passes Lent awaits;
let us pause, reflect awhile:
joy of birth or cross of hate...
