Hymn: See the veins that run through marble

Proper 16 year A
Isaiah 51: 1 – 6

See the veins that run through marble,
making every slab unique,
like them, strands run through our history,
through our thoughts and words we speak.

We are hewn from living history,
formed by comfort, faith and hope,
things that gave our parents insight,
grace that gave them strength to cope...


Tenth Sunday after Pentecost, Isaiah 51: 1 – 6, hymn, heritage,
tradition, history, grace, faith, providence, mercy, peace, hope
