You are all I have

Go in my name

Don’t afraid

Yes the world can be cruel

As the night is long

And greed overwhelming too

All the pain and abuse

And success at all costs

Surely can disempower you

You are all I have

Go in my name

Don’t be afraid

Take my life, my joy

Hope beyond hope

I am with you

For I need your hands and I need your feet

To let me enter in to heal

I have heard my people cry

You are all I have

Your weaknesses I know

I want you still

Don’t be afraid

I delight in you

I always have

Yes, it is true

For I need your eyes and I need your heart

To let me enter in…………

Yes, the world can be cruel…

You are all I have

Go in my name…….I am with you

You are all I have

We celebrate the Ascension today. Christ returns to his Father in order to send us

his Spirit and intercede for us at the Father's right hand.

The song featured today was inspired by a imaginative story about the angels talking to Jesus when he returned to heaven. They said to him that they didn't think much of those he had commissioned to carry on his work left behind on earth. Jesus responded, 'They are all I have.' As the body of Christ we are called to continue the mission Jesus began in our time.

We are all he has and with him on our side we are capable of great things.

The song is also reminiscent of St Teresa of Avila who said,

Christ has no body now but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
compassion on this world.

Happy Ascension Day and blessings on your week.
