MMOJ Songs for Liturgy -Twenty Sixth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Twenty Sixth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Opening Song:  Believe in Love (Words and Music by David Lohman © 2010) 

Refrain:  It’s time to believe out loud – no more staying silent!

It's time to proclaim aloud the faith that we hold dear.

It's time to reach out to the rejected.

It's time to stand up and say, "No more!"

It's time to declare a Word of Welcome,

bring everyone through the opened doors.

It's time to believe out loud,

It's time to be strong and proud,

It's time to believe, believe out loud!

1.       Our God remains unchanging,

yet in so many ways the Holy One's still speaking,

for this we offer praise.

Yet God's all-loving guidance too often goes unheard.

But there is yet more wisdom to break forth from God's Word!  Refrain

2.       If thoughts like love and justice are more than hollow words,

we'll listen for the Spirit and let our hearts be stirred.

We'll learn to think in new ways, the doors we'll open wide.

The table's set and ready, bring everyone inside!  Refrain

3.       The love of God is boundless, we're never turned away.

And out of this abundance, this gift we must repay.

We've got to stand with millions who've heard the Spirit's call,

and shout it from the mountains: “God’s love is meant for
