The Day of Your Return

Verse 1

Soloist, altos & sopranos join in:

Were you a star alone that light the evening heaven
One star in all the hosts that dance at night
I know that I would feel your absence like a vacuum
If you would fail to rise one time

Everyone else (including sopranos for the rest of the time):

Oohs


Verse 2

Altos, sopranos join in:

But you are all the stars and suns and moons above me
And you are all the light I'm standing in
Within the love of one who knows and has surrendered
To give the life that we delight to know

Everyone else (including sopranos for the rest of the time):

Oohs

Through all the turns your journey takes
And you must know that I am longing for your presence
For the day of your return
And I am waiting

Were I to realise the greatness of your passion
How pure and sacred is your love for me
How vast and infinite the depths of your compassion
So much greater than I've ever seen

"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." Colossians 3:12–14
