Hymn: Wrestling stranger met with Jacob

Proper 13 year A
Genesis 32: 22 – 31

Wrestling stranger met with Jacob,
struggled onward till the morn,
struggled by the brook of Jabbok,
heralding a different dawn.

Jacob met the task with courage,
and it seemed he would prevail,
but the stronger, wrestling stranger,
made him limp, God could not fail...


Seventh Sunday after Pentecost, Genesis, 32: 22 – 31, hymn, Jacob,
wrestling, Jabbok, Israel, Holy, struggle, doubt, purpose
