Come Apart with Me 
 
In the midst of noise and the hectic bustle of life,
Wearied by incessant competition and strife;
Can we hear Godís soft, gentle invitation to come apart
With Him, and walk beside the still waters?
To listen to the soft murmuring stream,
To lie quietly on grassy plain, meditate and dream!
 
Will we patiently hear Him tell His story,
About a Heavenly Father, yearning for reconciliation, 
Through Jesus Christís mission of Redemption?
Are we grateful that His Beloved Son is the Holy Sacrifice,
An atonement for our sins that will, only with God, suffice? 
Do we realise that the Cross makes possible our Salvation!
 
Is there any greater love story for mankind?
Can we ever such a great love expect to find!
Will we accept His loving gift with our heart,
Each having contributed to His sufferings in part?
Will we repent and be grateful for His Compassion,
And together, share in the joy of His Resurrection!
 
Come apart with Me, He asks His sheep!
Will we heed His call?
As we follow His Way, letís pray for His Grace,
Wisdom, courage and strength for each day,
Hoping, that on the day when Jesus summons all,
Weíll make it to His final roll-call!
